V Cillin First Generation Penicillin
I am allergic to penicillin G per the blood test. Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) caused the reaction. Is Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) , penicillin "G" ? Ty
Similar: The amoxicillin in Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) and Penicillin share a common core structure and thus people allergic to Penicillin are almost always allergic to amoxicillin. On the other hand, not all people reacting to amoxicillin are allergic to penicillin when the reaction is a skin rash. ...Read more
Child is strep carrier, augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) did not work. Would 10 day supply of clindamycin work?
Work for what?: Being a strep carrier is not the same as having an infection. Normally no antibiotics are necessary and may even cause problems (like thrush, diarrhea, etc.) a good review of the subject is at: http://www.Pediatricweb.Com/madisonpeds/article.Asp?Articletype=9&articleid=851. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had a sinus/ear infection since 5/23. Was given azithromycin & augmentin, neither drug was effective. I am taking ceftin, (cefuroxime) is this more effective?
Sinusitis: Hello, you are being treated in an appropriate pathway. Personally, i recommend a quinolone antibiotic such as Levaquin (levofloxacin) or Avelox after failing the previous two antibiotics. I also add a steroid by mouth to this regimen. Allergy testing may be helpful. You have had ear infections as well. Finally a ct scan of your sinuses would help, especially if you fail another abx. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Diabetes. Pen allergy. Cycle of clindamycin post oral surgery. "Probably infected in spots." Prescribed another Clin cycle combo w/ metronidazole. OK?
When and why is intramuscular benzilpenicillin (penicillin+benzatin) advised for infectious cellulitis instead of oral antibiotics?
Antibiotic choices: There are actually a number of ways to treat infections. It's a complex topic that's worth discussing with your doctor. If you are not happy with them, you can ALWAYS find a second opinion. Treatment options these days are much better than in the past. I hardly ever use intramuscular penicillin -except for syphilis cases. It sounds like you need more information -so I would call your doc today. ...Read more
She had amoxicilin,cefdinir,augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate).Then rapid strep positive but throat culture negative.Symptoms are not clearcut. Should we continue clindamycin?
Questionable?: The fact that the culture, which is the gold standard for diagnosis of strep throat, is negative,tells me the infection is resolved, at least most of it . I cannot instruct you to stop the antibiotic since there are many details I would need to know. However, the fact that there are still symptoms after 4 antibiotics makes me question if this is really strep infection. Follow up with her doctor. ...Read more

Can you tell me how are antibiotics classified as first generation, second generation or third generation antibiotics?
Cephalosporins: Only one type of antibiotic, the cephalosporins, normally is classified by "generation". There have been three groups of cephalosporins since the first ones (now called first generation) were developed in the 1960s. Second (1970s-80s) and third generation (1990s to now) each were chemically different and are active against more types of bacteria. There are several drugs in each group. ...Read more

How affective is cefdinir for ß_lactamase staph a/strep py? I had a argument with my pharmacist about the effectiveness of 3rd g' cephalosporin
Not sure what: Scale you are using when you ask "how" but Cefdinir is indicated for both staph and strep uncomplicated skin and pharyngeal as well as lung infections.. It functions by disrupting cell wall mucopeptide production and can be effective against select gram negative bacteria as well. ...Read more

With Cefzil & rocephin (ceftriaxone) I get hives.Should I take penicillin shot for syphilis treatment.This is a 3rd infection. Used doxycycline for first 2.
Condoned: Penicillin is still the first line treatment for syphilis. The most effective treatment for syphilis is not to get it, use a condom. The more often you get it, the greater your risk for antibiotic resistance. Also, with this being your third episode, you are now at high risk of contracting chlamydia and HIV. You need to get tested for those too. Stop playing Russian roulette with your life. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
