Is Cefpodoxime 200mg twice per day suitable for treating epididymo-orchitis? No sexual history and I have problems with quinolones.
Yes, . ..: Cefpodoxime is a third-generation cephlosporin, working well for uncomplicated UTI and gonorrhea; so, most likely, it will work well for you, but it is nice to know the selection of antibiotics for epididymo-orchitis is based on experience and assumption if no genito-urinary bacteria could be identified from urine or urethral specimen. So, take it and see. If not working as expected, reassessed. ...Read more

TLC?: If you are getting T-lymphocyte counts, I assume you have a more complex immune system than you are describing in the question. If it's total lymphocyte count that's another story. Please see an ID specialist for your child if not using your Peds or FP doc to answer questions. Not sure what we're treating and then checking TLC for response to therapy... ...Read more

My 10 month baby has fever 102f and doctor diagnodsed throat infecn. He gave pcm and cefpodoxime. After giving pcm still he has fever 101f, not lowering.?
Probably Normal: First of all, how long has the medicine been given. If the infection is bacterial, it still may take several days for the proper antibiotics to work. In fact, most throat infections and fever combos are viral and may take 5-7 days to disappear and the antibiotics do not work anyway. And the fever of 102, while frustrating, is not in and of itself dangerous. ...Read more

Stop taking it: If it is an extreme necessity, and there are no alternatives, and you don't know whether this an allergic reaction or an adverse drug reaction (side effect), see an allergist/immunologist for evaluation and possible desensitization to the said drug for treatment of a particular disease episode, good luck ...Read more
Various Options: Daily steroid or antihistamines nasal sprays (fluticasone, azelastine) are helpful. Determining exactly what you could be sensitized to in order to practice appropriate avoidance measures is also important. If medications and avoidance are not effective or not feasible allergen immunotherapy (allergy shots) could be an option as well. Other meds include Sudafed, Mucinex, (guaifenesin) Afrin, oral antihistamines ...Read more

No cure yet, but...: Allergy shots (allergen immunotherapy) is currently the only treatment that is disease modifiying, meaning it can change how the body responds to exposure to allergens. It is "natural" and long lasting effects carry on after shots are stopped. It works for most, but not all people. Closest thing to a cure so far..... For more read my blog at: http://www.

OTC Allergy: Not fair. Truly, it is trial-and-error. What works best for you might not work best for someone else. Loratadine is the weakest binding non-sedating antihistamine; Cetirizine is the strongest binding non-sedating antihistamine. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) works better than both but it makes people sleepy. ...Read more
