Is Unasyn A Sulfa Drug
I'm on a drug except anti-histamines. I can never take those or any type of sulfa drug. So any suggestions?
If you let us: Know what the condition is - we may be able to make some suggestions. Please clarify and re-ask question.
How long do I wait to tan after stopping a sulfa drug? I took last one yesterday at 8:30am can I tan after 3:00 today
Yes: Bactroban (mupirocin) is a topical medication for treating skin infections. If you have an allergy to sulfa antibiotics, you should not have a problem with bactroban (mupirocin) which is not absorbed into your system and should not cause an allergic reaction in those with a sulfa antibiotic (which is absorbed).
Is sulfasalazine considered a sulfa drug? Why would my rheumatologist prescribe it for me when I have lupus?
Yes: Yea it is sulfa abx. Useful as immuno modulator in lupus and rheumatoid arthritis!
I am taking ferrous sulfa. Drug 3x daily, and it says to take on an empty stomach. After I take this drug, how long later can I eat? I am anemic.
Ferrous sulfate: This is best absorbed from an acid stomach environment. Take ferrous sulfate on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal. Avoid taking antacids or antibiotics within 2 hours before or after taking ferrous sulfate, and you can probably eat at about the same time.
No: Probably not. It is a safe drug to take in pregnancy.
Sulfa drug for bladder infection. Then oral thrush with nystatin. White patches gone but mouth /tongue still burning feeling. How long until better?
When my son was little, he took some antibiotic called unasyn (ampicillin and sulbactam). Is that a penicillin?
Unasyn (ampicillin and sulbactam): Unasyn (ampicillin and sulbactam) is an antibiotic that combines a type of penicillin (called ampicillin) with sulbactam. This drug was developed to deal with bacteria that destroy part of the penicillin chemical structure, thus making these bacteria immune to the antibiotic. The sulbactam inactivates the bacterial resistance, allowing the penicillin portion to be effective.
I went to a prof and he prescribed unasyn (ampicillin and sulbactam) 6 tablet single dosage for any type of bacteria including gonorrhea. Is it okay please help!
Unasyn (ampicillin and sulbactam) not for GC: Nope. Given that there is now a drug-resistant form of gonorrhea sweeping the western hemisphere unasyn (ampicillin and sulbactam) is not an appropriate treatment for gonorrhea, and I believe not for chlamydia either. I would get you to a doctor that is up to date on stds and such more appropriate to your choices and experience.

Yes: Pencillin is a complete different class of drug than sulfa drugs. There is no clinically relevant cross-reactivity.See 1 more doctor answer
