Is there another drug combination for diverticulitis besides Flagel? I am also taking Bactrim due to allergies to Cipro, (ciprofloxacin) Keflex and Penecillin.

Is there another drug combination for diverticulitis besides Flagel? I am also taking Bactrim due to allergies to Cipro, (ciprofloxacin) Keflex and Penecillin.

Antibiotic allergies: You need the help of an ID doctor-since they are experts in antibiotics. First, I would want to 'define' ur allergies further-because sometimes a patient is labeled as 'allergic' & they aren't really allergic at all. That is really important. If ur truly allergic to penicillin, cephalosporins & cipro (ciprofloxacin) which is a fluoroquinolone, ur options are quite limited for oral therapy. Doxycycline might help. ...Read more

I've had a few hives after taking many unrelated drugs, such as tylenol, (acetaminophen) nsaids, keflex, mestinon, & others. How can I be allergic to every med?

Can keflex 500 mg cure sypillis?

Can keflex 500 mg cure sypillis?

No -- don't take it: Cephalexin is the worst of two worlds for syphilis treatment: It would not work reliably; but it has partial activity against syphilis bacteria and could therefore interfere with future testing for it. If you think you have syphilis or were exposed, you need a penicillin injection; nothing else is reliable. Syphilis kills, causes strokes, and makes people blind. Don't mess around: see a doctor! ...Read more

I am currently taking keflex and have an itchy bottem could they be related?

Keflex: To answer your question is "yes". It can be related, but it may not be related either. In other words, it's hard to tell without more history and seeing the area.

I'm taking keflex isit OK tohave a few beers. Today is my last day taking them...? How long should Iwait

Exercise caution: Alcohol, in general, is not the drug I would like to have on board if I have an infection - even low levels can impair our immune response, both in terms of white blood cells that gobble up bacteria and viruses, and the production of antibodies to kill the invaders. One or two beers is unlikely to cause many problems, but would keep in mind also that safe drinking is 1 beer/d in women, 2/day men. ...Read more
