I have taken 8 500 mg amoxicillan in one day due to anot infection of a removed wisdom tooth I missed a dose and doubled up am I oj?

Yes: You're good.

Antibiotics are designed to be kept at a certain concentration in your blood for a certain amount of time, hence, the taking of the same dose of antibiotic over a specific time interval.

You have already taken a few doses of the antibiotic so you should already have a good amount circulating in your blood stream.

Just continue taking the antibiotic as directed until its finished. ...Read more

Supposed to take amoxicillin dose every 8 hours. What happens if you miss one dose by three hours?

Supposed to take amoxicillin dose every 8 hours. What happens if you miss one dose by three hours?

Not much: If you miss a dose of antibiotic or take one late, just get back on the regular schedule prescribed by your doctor, stay on it, and you should be ok. Doses are timed to keep the amount of drug in your system at an optimal level to do what the drug is intended to do--in the case of antibiotics, they weaken or kill bacteria. A single missed dose lets the level get too low but is correctable. ...Read more

Noncompliance: Noncompliance with taking anti-rejection medications is one of the leading causes of kidney transplantation rejection and kidney failure. It is important that you call your nephrologist and ask him for direction. Perhaps he/she can connect you with an agency to obtain these medications in the interim. It is crucial that you restart these medications asap. Kidney failure could occur sooner or later, but may be inevitable if you do not get access to these medications. In the meantime, live an impeccably healthy lifestyle and protect your body and kidneys from unneccessary toxins, eat nutritious foods, excercise and do not drink alcohol or smoke tobacco. ...Read more

I was on sertraline 25mg for a month, then started 50mg. The other night I missed a dose. Now my anxiety is terrible. Is it because I missed one?

I was on sertraline 25mg for a month, then started 50mg. The other night I missed a dose. Now my anxiety is terrible. Is it because I missed one?

Not likely: Missing 1 dose won't do that. Talk to your doctor. You could be having a "paradoxical" reaction to the drug; or, "paradoxically, " it could mean the drug is actually doing its job and giving you more (psychic) energy to experience your anxiety. If the latter, it may be a temporary effect as you "work through" the anxiety. Definitely let your doctor know. ...Read more

What will happen if I miss one dose of buspar (buspirone)? I take it before bed and 12 hours later. I've missed yesterday and todays second dose, and anxiety rose

Compliance is key: Compliance is key to good outcomes for any medical condition. Missing a dose or two or three or 10 of any medication simply raises the chances of a sub optimal outcome. In some cases that could be very bad and in other cases it really doesn't affect overall quality of life too much but you should always try and be compliant if you want to feel better. ...Read more

Woke up in night with vertigo/dizzy I take betahistine tabs &missed one dose 2day. Also have panic disorder. My nose is bit blocked. Scared I'm gona die?

You will not die: Vertigo is extremely unpleasant, right up there with panic disorder. In fact, they overlap in symptoms to some degree and some people get non-fearful panic attacks with vertigo as the predominant symptom. Do you have any medication for break- through panic? If not, download one of the free binaural beats apps on healthtap and pick the most soothing setting you can find. Best wishes. ...Read more
