Is Azax Tablet For Throat Infection
I'm allergic to penicillen. Which Levaquin dosage is stronger to take for a severe sinus infection? Is it 500 mg or 750 mg once daily for 10 days?
Depends: It depends on the nature of the infection and physician preference. Sometimes, antibiotic courses of 3-6 weeks are required to adequately treat the sinus cavities. Because of this, antibiotic selection and dosages must be selected with care in order to reduce side effects, adverse outcomes of antibiotic treatment and the development of resistant bacteria. PCN allergy should always be confirmed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If I'm taking fluconazole 100mg for 10 days for a fungal infection in sinuses, is it ok to drink wine?
Strep antibiotics: Another medication - are you taking one right now? The antibiotic of choice for strep throat is Penicillin VK (most potent and cheapest) and its derivatives. If allergic to it, other choices are the Erythromycin group, Cipro (ciprofloxacin) group, cephalosporin group. The last group should be taken with caution as there could be an associated cross-allergy in 10% of people. ...Read more
I'm currently taking levofloxacin 500mg tablets for a sinus infection, can this also be used to treat the yeast infection i've developed?
It likely caused it.: Levofloxacin in a broad spectrum antibiotic that not only kills bad bacteria, but also the good ones that maintain an environment that is hostile to yeast. Most likely, the very antibiotic you think could be used, is likely what contributed to the cause of your infection. I would recommend a dose of Fluconazole (diflucan) 150mg by mouth. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm taking 500 mg of Levaquin once a day for 10 days to treat acute maxillary sinus infection. Is this a strong dosage and will it be effective?
Probably OK, but...: See my reply to your other infection. If this was prescribed by your doctor, take it as directed. But don't expect miracles: as I said before, most sinusitis doesn't need antibiotics and often they don't help very much. A nasal decongestant probably is equally or more important. Good luck. ...Read more

Neither: These are not first line drugs & only used if you can't take cephalosporins or have certain antibiotic allergy. Depends totally on what bug you are trying to kill, as so many emerging resistance to antibiotics treatment & becoming a huge public health problem. Ofloxacin is overkill for skin infection & has a lot of side effects.Azithromycin is 2nd line, and risk of vaginitis is 5%. Use probiotics! ...Read more
