How effective is chloromycetin (chloramphenicol sodium succinate) to numb gums?

Not effective: Chloromycetin (chloramphenicol sodium succinate) is also known as chloramphenicol, which is an antibiotic that is given intravenously.

Found 2 medications that take away my mystery chronic body pain the day after taking them. Doxylamine succinate And diazepam, what could pain cause be?

Take a deep breath: Some good news and some that can be difficult. The good news: You've found things that work, there's nothing seriously wrong or likely to worsen. The hard stuff is that you're suffering from tension/anxiety. The antihistamine helps you get better rest which can help neck and eye pain but can make you groggy. The Valium calms you but is best for specific stressful events. Find CBT therapy for help. ...Read more

Can switching medication, metropolol tartrate to succinate, cause dizziness and fatigue; if it does will it last for a couple of days?

Can switching medication, metropolol tartrate to succinate, cause dizziness and fatigue; if it does will it last for a couple of days?

It's dose dependent: The difference between the tartrate and succinate formulation is the half-life (how long the medicine is active in your blood stream). Milligram for milligram, they're equivalent: e.g. 50 mg of met tart 2x a day is the same as 100 mg of met succ once a day. If your overall dose is increased, you could experience fatigue and dizziness till you get used to the new dose. Be sure your BP isn't too low. ...Read more

I just noticed some hair loss on far head very little. Could this be from medications? I am taking metoprolol succinate. Been on it for 14 months.

I just noticed some hair loss on far head very little. Could this be from medications? I am taking metoprolol succinate. Been on it for 14 months.

Not likely : Angela, while any side effect can theoretically happen with any drug, hair loss is not a common side effect of metoprolol. One thing you may want to check is to make sure your thyroid levels are normal as that can impact both blood pressure and hair growth. I'd suggest a call to your primary care provider ...Read more

Help can chloramphenicol have hydrogen bonding?

Help can chloramphenicol have hydrogen bonding?

Chloramphenicol: Chloramphenicol is something of a dangerous drug, and I don't recommend using it, except in extreme cases. If you are using it, it should be under the guidance of an Infectious Diseases specialist. It is very lipid-soluble, remaining relatively unbound to proteins. Thus, it has minimal hydrogen bonding if that's what you really want to know. Hopefully you can get more information from your doctor. ...Read more

Why are ppi and chloramphenicol are given to a patient with cholecystitis?

Why are ppi and chloramphenicol are given to a patient with cholecystitis?

Unknown: Chloramphenicol is an antibiotic and cholecystitis is an infected gallbladder so antibiotic treatment is reasonable before/after surgery. This is a very unusual choice of antibiotic as this drug is not typically used much anymore. You would have to ask the prescriber. Ppis decrease acid and may have some symptomatic benefit but again have no direct effect on outcomes with cholecystitis. ...Read more
