Intravenous Antibiotics List
Allergic to many broad spectrum antibiotics, including penicillin, cephalosporins. Clindamycin, Bactrim, Cipro (ciprofloxacin) gave C Diff. What would work for Sinus?
If ceftriaxone IV is utilized in place of cefotetan/cefoxitin IV as inpatient pid regimen, what would be appropriate dose of ceftriaxone IV?
Depends: It depends on what is being treated, what the sensitivity of the organism is and why changes are being made. Medications have different dosages that are appropriate for that medication that do not correlate with other medications. For instance we may use 1 million units of penicillin for an infection or 250 mg of Zithromax for the same infection. It has to do with the effective dose. ...Read more
Depends: The best antibiotic for a urinary tract infection is based on the result of a culture and sensitivity testing of the urine. Empiric treatment is usually started with Amoxicillin or Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) while awaiting culture results. Culture and sensitivity take about two days. ...Read more

Depends on infection: What are you trying to kill? The GI tract is full of all kinds of bacteria- maybe 4000 species! generally gnr and anaerobes, but really varies depending on location in the tract. For example h. Pylori is limited to the stomach. Abx should be tailored to potential source. Metronidazole / Ciprofloxacin is a common combination for large intestinal infection. ...Read more

I'm now immune to all oral antibiotics for uti/kidney infections, urologist giving me weekly doses of Gentamiacin, infection is recurring?
Chronic UTI: Thought we had addressed this yesterday. You probably need to be seen by an infectious diseases expert rather than a urologist. If you do not have diminished renal function you are not receiving gentamicin correctly, and there may be other avenues to go to before this drug damages your hearing. Best wishes. ...Read more

Are children with chronic benign neutrophenia supposed to get intravenus antibiotics at first sign of fever ?
List of Antibiotics: you can get lists of antibiotics readily available from many sources on the Internet. Strength of an antibiotic is a rather subjective thing as it depends on which bacteria you are trying to treat. For example, Penicillin is very effective for Strep Throat but will not treat most skin infections. This doesn't make it any weaker an antibiotic that Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) which would treat both. Just different. ...Read more
What should a person allergic to sulfa based antibiotics be careful about? Is there a comprehensive list of these antibiotics and is sulfur OK?
Sulfa avoidance: Although cross-sensitivity to drugs with a similar sulfa structure was once suspected to be likely, this has not shown to be true. This only drug you need to avoid is sulfa (Bactrim, Septra (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) etc). Read the label carefully. Note that it has nothing to do with sulfate or sulfite. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've had an ingrown toenail for around 5-6 months and am still on a waiting list, I'm taking antibiotics and cleaning it, could I still lose whole toe?
Infected or not?: This depends if the ingrown nail is causing an infection (redness, pain, swelling, pus, increase in skin temperature). If you are relatively healthy and have an infection, this would probably not lead to needing an amputation, however, if you have diabetes or are immune compromised, then you need to take care of this immediately. In my opinion any bacterial infection should be treated promptly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My widal test report is s.to 1:320 s.th 1:160 ah1:80 bh1:40 I am taking medicine: antibiotic mycin 500. What will this do?
Unclear question: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. The information you provided does not seem to add up and hence it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
I have had a cough for just over a week.
It’s not getting better. Probably worse in fact.
Is it advisable to go on antibiotics?
Possible; talk to do: To better understand the cause of your cough and find a solution, it is best to get in touch with your doctor. If it’s an infection, your doctor may prescribe you a bacterial antibiotic. Cough syrup and lozenges marketed for cough may relieve cough temporarily, but a good rule of thumb is that if you aren’t getting better - and definitely if you’re getting worse, get in touch with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ask questions!!!!: Though many diseases can be cured with antibiotics, not every single disease requires an antibiotic. In fact, there are times when the side effects of antibiotics may be life threatening. Ask your doctor what the side effects are to your antibiotic, if they may interact with you current medications, if the diagnosis can be caused by something other than a bacterial infection (such as a virus). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Prescription label: The directions will be on the label- along with any precautions or other specific notations. It's rare, if ever, that specific. You can space it out depending upon the hours that you are awake. It's more important that you don't skip taking it and finish the prescription. If you have any questions call your pharmacist or prescribing doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
