Is it possible for ampicillin and cloxacillin to treat staph aureous?

Is it possible for ampicillin and cloxacillin to treat staph aureous?

Yes. But: I would be wary with ampicillin as most strains are beta-lactamase +. Unless, the lab test shows penicillin or ampicillin sensitivity I will not use this drug to treat staph infection blindly. A better relative drug option is amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, the latter component inhibits the beta-lactamase enzyme. Cloxacillin and amox-clav will act against Methicillin sensitive staph but not MRSA. ...Read more

Not likely: The FDA states there are no reports of congenital abnormalities when taking Cloxacillin while pregnant. Personally, I would try to avoid taking prolonged antibiotics while pregnant if at all possible. Check with your doctor who prescribed this to you and ask for an alternative to taking an antibiotic based on your condition. Many times superficial skin boils are drained and don't need antibiotics. ...Read more

Hello. I have a strep throat. Can Cloxacillin Sodium cure it? Thanks

Hello. I have a strep throat. Can Cloxacillin Sodium cure it? Thanks

Yes: Cloxacillin is in the penicillin family which is the first medicine recommend for Strep Throat. HOWEVER - if you just think you have strep throat and haven't been tested you may be using an antibiotic unnecessarily. Throat infections are annoying but the majority of them - even Strep - will self heal in about five days. If you are not too ill, you may want to try being patient, fluids, rest. ...Read more
