Allergic to pcn since a baby. Use ees (erythromycin ethyl succinate) instead.?

Yes: Macrolide antibiotics like ees (erythromycin ethyl succinate) will be safe. But if your allergic reaction was some time ago, you may want to consider seeing an allergist for pcn testing. Skin testing is now very accurate. You may have outgrown your pcn allergy, or may have even been misdiagnosed, which happens often. ...Read more

Does Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) have sulfa. I am allergic to sulfa? Which one is better for UTI Keflex or Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim)

Does  Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) have sulfa.  I am allergic to sulfa? Which one is better for UTI Keflex or Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim)

Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is sulfa: Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) contains a sulfonamide ("sulfa drug") called sulfamethoxazole. It needs to be avoided by people with sulfa allergy. Cephalexin (Keflex) is less reliable for UTI; many UTI bacteria are resistant to it. Ask your doctor about possible treatment with a quinolone like ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, and others. ...Read more

Does giving Flagyl(Benzol Metronidazole+ Diloxanide Furoate) with antibiotics.Ceclor( Cefaclor) help minimize side effects of Ceclor such as diarhea ?

Does giving Flagyl(Benzol Metronidazole+ Diloxanide Furoate) with antibiotics.Ceclor( Cefaclor) help minimize side effects of Ceclor such as diarhea ?

No!!: All three meds that you are taking are antibiotics and are intended to kill different types of organisms. When a doc gives you something to take he should explain to you not only how and when but also the purpose. If you do develop diahrrea there are good things for that but the main thing is to drink a sufficient amount of clean water. ...Read more

Is polytrim eye drops ok for someone allergic to bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) sulfa?

Depends: If you have a well documented history of an anaphylactic reaction to Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and sulfa in the past (you could not breath and had to go to the er), it is better to choose a different eye drop as you can get a similar allergy with polytrim. In my experience, prior history of "allergy" may not be a true allergy. But tell the md who treated you to be on the same side. ...Read more

I'm allergic to Erythromycin-anaphylaxis Clindamycin- anaphylaxis Bactrim- rash Sulfa drugs- rash can I use polymyxin b sulfate eye drops?

I'm allergic to Erythromycin-anaphylaxis 
Clindamycin- anaphylaxis
Bactrim- rash
Sulfa drugs- rash can I use polymyxin b sulfate eye drops?

Yes: Polymyxin is an effective anti-bacterial. You could use it without the allergies popping up as it has with others. However: are you sure you need this drop? It seems as if you are using an antibiotic for every eye inflammation, most of which are probably not bacterial. And in so doing you have sensitized yourself to antibiotics that you might need for an actual infection. ...Read more

Is septra (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) ds prescribed for strep throat?

Is septra (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) ds prescribed for strep throat?

Sulfa for Strep: Sulfonamide drugs were frequently used for Strep throat in the 1930s but fell out of favor approximately 10 years later when it was felt that bacterial resistance has developed. However, at least one study has proven this to be false, and sulfonamide drugs may be useful for this infection in patients with allergies to more traditionally used antibiotics or with multiple infections. J Clin Microbiol. Dec 2012; 50(12): 4067–4072. ...Read more
