I am 70 taking Coumadin 5 m"g daily 9 months after massive PE. Could preventive antibiotics Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 875mg twice a day for one week raise INR?

I am 70 taking Coumadin 5 m"g daily 9 months after massive PE. Could preventive antibiotics Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 875mg twice a day for one week raise INR?

Coumadin/Augmentin: Using coumadin (warfarin) together with amoxicillin (in augmentin) may increase the risk of bleeding, especially if you are elderly or have kidney or liver impairment. You may need more frequent monitoring of your prothrombin time or INR by your doctor to use both medications. The question is why are you taking prophylactic antibiotics. They have very limited indications. ...Read more

I am suffer with pe. Can I cure it?

I am suffer with pe. Can I cure it?

Pulmonary Embolism: With the right treatment & passage of time, pe can be "cured". However, I do not recommend thinking of this condition as being "cured" since once you have a pe, you are placed at a higher risk for having another blood clot. It is best to think of it as treated or in remission (similar) to cancer rather than thinking of it as cured. This way you'll be vigilant on prevention & early detection. Chaker. ...Read more

How do I get changed for pe class without people noticing my pad?

Bathroom...: Perhaps you can change for pe class in a bathroom with the door closed. When you come out of the bathroom, you will already have your pe clothes on. Then, use the same bathroom to change back into your clothes after class. You could also discuss the situation with your school nurse; you are probably not the only one and your nurse may already have a solution for you! You are not alone! ...Read more

I have facing PE & ED. Plz guide me what I do now. I m very tense?

What???: In medical jargon, PE is pulmonary embolism, but I have no clue what a "facing PE" is. ED is erectile dysfunction, but does the "facing" adjective refer to that too? I'm very confused as to what you're trying to ask. There is not a common relationship between pulmonary emboli and erectile dysfunction, and I can't guess for either one what the "facing" refers to! Good luck! ...Read more

I have ED and pe problems by solving ED complely back to normal can I also solve pe problems or just are 2 different things from one to another?

I have ED and pe problems by solving ED complely back to normal can I also solve pe problems or just are 2 different things from one to another?

It depends: First of all, you are quite young to have ed. Make sure that you have a testosterone level both free and total, done to make sure that that is not part of the problem. Your age, if your testosterone is slow, you should also be checked for sleep apnea which causes low testosterone in young men. The Cialis should correct your ed. Since ed creates anxiety which leads to pe, the pe will likely go away. ...Read more
