Dehydration: Dehydration can occur easily when a patient has an infection. An infection can cause a fever, even when the patient isn't always aware, and the skin flushes, with more fluid evaporating. In addition, if a patient isn't feeling well, they often don't drink or eat as much as they typically do. Patient's who are on other medications, including cardiovascular medications, can be more sensitive to the effects of dehydration. Signs of allergic reaction to a medication usually includes rash that is usually hives, swelling, itching, or shortness of breath.
A partner may have chlamydia. Would levofloxacin 500mg per day for 7days work? Or should I try to get doxycycline? Could I take both?
Chlamydia: Levofloxacin will no longer treat gonorrhea. And, it does not in any way treat chlamydia. If you need treatment for both you will need a shot and then pills for chlamydia. The shot for the new version of gonorrhea spreading around the world is known as ceftriaxone.See 1 more doctor answer
Can doxycycline be taken for middle ear infection? Which of these two would be better: Levofloxacin or Doxycycline??
I had an inguinal hernia surgery in 2010, feel pain at surgical side when ejaculate. A doc gave vibramycin (doxycycline) 100mg& levofloxacin 500mg will they be useful?
Maybe: If there is an infectious component to something called epidydimitis, it will help. Low risk if problems from a short course of antibiotics. Definately worth a try.See 1 more doctor answer
Please answer! Are there any common bacteria BESIDES std related ones that doxycyline will treat that levaquin (levofloxacin) doesn't treat effectively? Prostattitis
Yes, but...: There are several bacteria that might respond to doxycycline if levofloxacin doesn't work, but unlikely in this case. If you had an STD, almost certainly levo would have worked -- for example, chlamydia and most cases of nongonococcal urethritis (NGU). True prostatitis is uncommon at your age, and when present usually is nonbacterial and most antibiotics are ineffective. Discuss with your doctor.
All different: They are not related to each other.
I know that while taking vibramycin (doxycycline) I should avoid sun exposure. But when can I expose freely to sun after stopping the drug i.e.after how long?!
Take with food: Make sure you are taking your Doxycycline with lots of food and water, on a full stomach. It is typically dosed at twice a day. You can reduce dose to once daily first, and increase to twice daily as tolerated. If symptoms persist, stop and call us.
