25weeks pregnant. Pus cell &yeast positive in vagina. Antibiotic cefuroxime (14)7days& fluconazole50mg 3ngts+neosten vt200 6ngts prescribed. Is it safe?

Yes, but it may be: ...overkill. Fluconazole & Neosten both treat yeast vaginitis, altho resistance can rarely occur. The antibiotic cefuroxine is NOT used to treat yeast infections. Antibiotics can kill of healthy vaginal bacteria and allow yeast to take over. Perhaps your doctor was treating something else as well. All of these meds are considered safe after the 1st trimester.

What's the question?: If a woman has a bladder infection (typical UTI or urinary tract infection) that involves the bladder and has not spread to the kidneys, then taking oral antibiotics is the usual treatment. The patient should be feeling better by the next day, but does need to finish the course of treatment. If a urine culture was sent to the lab, the doctor or his staff will be able to see what the cause was. ...Read more

Besides, many gono-infected patients may be infected with chlamydia also. So, ask the doctor to assure the extent s/he plans to cover. ...Read more

What happens if a person had c. difficile diarrhea after 7 days of ceftin, (cefuroxime) is it safe to give 1gm of ancef IV during surgery?

Sometimes: There is a small but definite risk of C. Diff infection with Ancef (cefazolin) given prior to surgery. In someone who has had a previous C.
