Is Augmentin Safe For G6pd
Doctor prescribed Cefodox (cefpodoxim) for a cough and said it was safer than amoxicillin. I'm 2 weeks pregnant. Is it really safer than amoxicillin?
Silly comment: The most dangerous time in pregnancy is between weeks 4-12 when the organs are being laid down. Most colds are viral and antibiotics are useless for them anyhow. Always try to take the least broad spectrum antibiotic for the shortest possible time and surely while you are pregnant. Best of luck!! ...Read more

Help please! is ciprofloxacin a good alternative for augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for a cat bite?
Had a sinus/ear infection since 5/23. Was given azithromycin & augmentin, neither drug was effective. I am taking ceftin, (cefuroxime) is this more effective?
Sinusitis: Hello, you are being treated in an appropriate pathway. Personally, i recommend a quinolone antibiotic such as Levaquin (levofloxacin) or Avelox after failing the previous two antibiotics. I also add a steroid by mouth to this regimen. Allergy testing may be helpful. You have had ear infections as well. Finally a ct scan of your sinuses would help, especially if you fail another abx. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I heard augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is combined of amoxicillin and some acid. Is it possible for someone amoxicillin works abit but not augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for tooth infection?
Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is good: It is commonly used for dental infection and abscesses. Clavulanic acid dissolves the outer membrane of the bacteria if the bacteria has developed some resistance to amoxicillin. Anyway, if you do have a tooth infection, you really need to see a dentist for a definitive treatment. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Is it safe to get a tonsillectomy/adenectomy with active group b strep throat? (Currently taking augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) pre-op)
? group B not A ?: Group B strep is not a throat pathogen. It occasionally causes UTI's in women or sepsis in newborns but is not a throat pathogen. Some kids/adults carry strep A year round & would never be clear. If the docs have assessed the kid & feel surgery is okay, they know more than your limited post can provide. If they consider it safe, I have no reason to object to that idea. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Safe, not adviseable: Safe but i doubt that your husband would be up to it. Prostatis is very painful and uncomfortable. It is better to wait until treatment has completed. Sometimes a second medication is added for pain and obstruction that can also occur. Sepsis can also occur depending on the acuity and age of the patient although less likely in someone at this age. ...Read more
