Is Cefpodoxime 200mg twice per day suitable for treating epididymo-orchitis? No sexual history and I have problems with quinolones.
Yes, . ..: Cefpodoxime is a third-generation cephlosporin, working well for uncomplicated UTI and gonorrhea; so, most likely, it will work well for you, but it is nice to know the selection of antibiotics for epididymo-orchitis is based on experience and assumption if no genito-urinary bacteria could be identified from urine or urethral specimen. So, take it and see. If not working as expected, reassessed. ...Read more
My 11 years old son has fever TLC count was 9400 first day Dr gave cefpodoxime 3 days nw TLC is 15500 dr gave ceftriaxone ing 2gm in morning 1 gm eve?
TLC?: If you are getting T-lymphocyte counts, I assume you have a more complex immune system than you are describing in the question. If it's total lymphocyte count that's another story. Please see an ID specialist for your child if not using your Peds or FP doc to answer questions. Not sure what we're treating and then checking TLC for response to therapy... ...Read more

My 10 month baby has fever 102f and doctor diagnodsed throat infecn. He gave pcm and cefpodoxime. After giving pcm still he has fever 101f, not lowering.?
Probably Normal: First of all, how long has the medicine been given. If the infection is bacterial, it still may take several days for the proper antibiotics to work. In fact, most throat infections and fever combos are viral and may take 5-7 days to disappear and the antibiotics do not work anyway. And the fever of 102, while frustrating, is not in and of itself dangerous. ...Read more

Dx of pyelonephritis today. Iv antibiotics at the ER and prescription for vantin (cefpodoxime) for tomorrow. Currently I'm dizzy and my vision is blurry, are those symptoms?
Report to doctor...:
You're getting the top-gun antibiotics for pyelonephritis. It may cause nausea and vomiting in 1.5 - 4% of users. To prove drug side effects, recurrent use proves the concern with high alert and watch is the must. In your scenario, do you feel dizzy on standing? If so, check blood pressure and pulse, and watch with care. In doubt, see doctor for assessment.

I have viral infection from 3 days I have taken dosage of doxycycline 1-2 days nd before it I have taken cefpodoxime But I m feeling now some throat pain nd have some cough How to treat this??
There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain. A useful tool, but pain is so necessary for survival that we are not "allowed" to monkey with it much. In acute pain, the transition from miserable to less miserable can be great. In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan. ...Read more
Sometimes: Sometimes they are. For the most part, expired drugs simply lose potency once past their expiration date. There are, however, some drugs that actually become harmful if taken after they expire. As such, it is best to throw out any medications you have after a year. ...Read more
ASPRIN: Actually no one has decided on 'safest'. Asprin has been around since before you were born and unless you take too much (yes, too much of anything isn't good) most people are okay with it. If the pain it too severe for asprin you need to know what causes it. Good diagnosis is called for. See the dr. ...Read more
