Prevacid (lansoprazole): This combination is called a prevpac (lansoprazole amoxicillin and clarithromycin). Each "pack" contains 2 capsules of lansoprazole, 2 capsules of Clarithromycin and 4 capsules of amoxicillin. The dose is one pack divided into 2 daily doses for 2 weeks. It is used to treat h. Pylori induced gastroesophageal reflux disease. ...Read more
See below:: Isoniazid is used alone or with other drugs to treat tuberculosis (TB) and to prevent it in people who have had contact with tuberculosis bacteria. It eliminates only active (growing) bacteria. Since the bacteria may exist in a resting (nongrowing) state for long periods, therapy with Isoniazid (and other antituberculosis drugs) must be continued for a long time (usually 6-12 months). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Niacinamide fights against both sun damage such as discoloration and skin cancers and acne. One product line called NIA 24 has a particularly effective form of Niacinamide. (I use and recommend it) However, the MOST important anti-aging product is a high potency (SPF) sunscreen, using a broad brimmed hat and avoiding sun. Happy aging! ...Read more
No: As a general rule of thumb, NO antibiotics can be topically put on face and then exposed to the sun. All antibiotics whether topical or oral are somewhat sun sensitive. ...Read more
A large amount: The upper limit of the dose of niacinamide is over 3 grams. Most patients don't need nearly that much or can't take that much due to side effects such as flushing or diarrhea. Niacin is a B vitamin and thus is water soluble. It is extremely hard to overdose on Niacinamide and damage your liver. ...Read more
Lipid effect, flush: Niacin is a b vitamin that is often used to treat lipid (cholesterol and triglyceride) disorders. Nicotinamide is another vitamin in the vitamin b group. Although Niacin and nicotinamide are identical in their vitamin activity, nicotinamide has no significant cholesterol or triglyceride effects. Also, nicotinamide does not cause skin flushihg that can be a limitation to use of niacin. ...Read more
Yes: All of those treatments work in different ways but I would avoid long term oral antibiotic. If you can. Topical is ok. Nicotinamide reduces inflammation, retinoids shrink oil glands and clindamycin kills bacteria that digest the oil from the glands. It is the breakdown products of the oil that cause all the problems. A good smile is worth a lot of medicine. ...Read more
Good question.: The niacinamide form of Niacin is a b vitamin (it's in your cereal) which does not lower cholesterol like the nicotinic acid form of niacin. Since nicotinic acid causes flushing, makers have tried changing the formulation so it's "flush-free" but will still lower cholesterol. The active ingredient of your cholesterol-lowering Niacin preparation should always be nicotinic acid. ...Read more
Can Cindamycin and nicotinamide gel be applied during day time and exposed to sun because my doc prescribed to use it during day?
Should be OK: Clindamycin gel (a topical antibiotic) and nicotinamide gel (a vitamin applied topically) should not cause a sun reaction. It is a good question to ask, because some medications can cause sun sensitivity including tar based over-the-counter skin/hair treatments, and retinoids for acne. ...Read more
Hi.. How long should I use BP 4% wash and clindamycin n nicotinamide faceclin gel?? How long does it take to see visible results? ??..thanks!
I read a journal that states nicotinamide can decrease cellular proliferation of melanoma but it increases invasiveness. Does this make sense? Thx
No: This is cell-culture stuff. A huge amount of this kind of thing gets published, and it's almost never applicable to real human beings because of the vast complexity of cancer. People who are trying to sell you vitamins read these things over, publish them selectively, and then hope that you'll buy some of their products "just in case there's something to it." Don't reward this. Best wishes. ...Read more

I had a pimple On nose..used benzoyl peroxide wash 4% n clindamycin nicotinamide gel..it's almost gone but left a tiny cut like scar.what can I do????
Scar?: Complete healing takes 3 to 6 months. What ever you do, do not pick at it. Just leave it alone, step away from the mirror, just step away and keep your hands away from your face. ...Read more
Do brevoxyl benzoyl peroxide 4% wash n CLINDAMYCIN n NICOTINAMIDE faceclin gel have any kind of effects On eye n headache?I used 1 time.hvng headaches
Red marks: To paraphrase, anyone who tells you they can rid you of acne overnight is selling something. Acne is a problem of months and years. There is no quick fix. There are good treatments to be had at every drugstore starting with benzoyl peroxide creams and mild cleansers. Irritated skin will need makeup: coverup/touchup cream if a perfect complexion is needed instantly. ...Read more
Niacin is best: No-flush Niacin can either refer to a slow release preparation or inositol. Slow release preparations are better tolerated than immediate release products, but the lipid lowering effects are somewhat less potent than immediate or extended release niacin. For comparable efficacy a higher dose of slow release is usually needed. Inositol and niacinamide not improve lipids and should be avoided. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
