How long does it take a ten day course of Augmentin 875-125 to leave your system? I finished the medication seven days ago.

How long does it take a ten day course of Augmentin 875-125 to leave your system? I finished the medication seven days ago.

Definitely out: The medication has quite a short half-life, which is why it is taken 2x a day- since the first dose in the morning wears away, then you need a second dose. Generally we think of 5x the half-life as a 'complete' elimination of the drug - so you are well beyond that... it would have been totally gone after a couple days. If you're having symptoms of some kind though, you should check with a doc. ...Read more

You: You likely had an allergic reaction to the soap you used. Try over the counter Hydrocortisone cream to the external vaginal area. If this persists you may be dealing with a yeast infection, you can then try a yeast infection cream. If you still have symptoms visit your doctor again.
Best of luck. ...Read more

I had unprotected anal sex (without ejaculating) with a man who insisted he was HIV negative and on the medication Truvada. I was the dominant partner (top). That was exactly seven days ago today. Yesterday and today I have felt sore muscles (though that

Virtually zero risk: Probably your partner is taking Truvada (emtricitabine and tenofovir) as pre-exposure prophylaxis against HIV (PrEP), so he is unlikely to have HIV. Or maybe he is HIV infected but "negative" meant undetectable viral load. Either way, your HIV risk from this single exposure is extremely low, zero for practical purposes. Your symptoms aren't from new HIV: 7 days is too soon, and sore muscles alone is unlikely due to HIV. ...Read more

If I took a drug test that showed I had a marijuana level of 111 would I be clean in seven days from the day I took the test and tested positive?

No: It depends on how often you use marijuana (thc). If it's only 1 time, your urine test may be positive up to 8 days or so. Urine remains positive for a longer time with frequency of use. For 2-4 times per month, your urine thc could be positive up to 3 weeks. For using 2-3 times/week, this becomes 23-35 days. With daily usage, it's 49-90 days. Hair remains positive for 90 days after using. ...Read more

My seven months old baby vomits almost frequently as he takes in drugs or food. What could be wrong? We have seen a doctor but he says its malaria

Cannot diagnose: If you are having your baby seen by a competent pediatrician and they have made a diagnosis of malaria would suggest that your baby be treated appropriately. If not satisfied with the diagnosis then suggest that you get a second opinion. This cannot be diagnosed long distance. Hope the baby is better soon. ...Read more

I have a friend who is twenty seven weeks pregnant she's done herione during the pregnancy and meth once what are the chances of these drugs showing up?

Wrong question: Forgive my frankness. If you're really her friend, you need to ask, "What can I do to help my friend stop doing these drugs, so that she can be a decent parent?
