Amoxil on Kitten is making me nervous?
My 7 week old kitten is on .5 of Amoxil 2x a day for an internal infection. He has been acting drunk and crazy since he has been on it for 3 days. He threw up his dose last night and started acting fine. When I give him this medicine he wont do anything but sleep and sit there. Should I lower the dose?
Asked by Gertrude Galassini 3 months ago.
Amoxil is in the penicillin group of antibiotics and it is possible for him to be having an allergic reaction to it. If he were mine, I would skip his next dose and call his vet first thing Monday morning. Don't just quite the Amoxil and don't change the dose..that sounds correct for a kitten. I also read your other question to see if I could get some history on why he was on Amoxil. I have had many kitties and kittens with upper respiratory infections and they never had nose bleeds. But the high fever and high white blood count do point to an infection. Is kitten's nose still bloody? Is he eating and drinking for you? If he has been on the antibiotics for three days this should have brought his fever down and he would want to eat again. Purrs to you and kitten. Answered by Refugio Pariseau 3 months ago.
Just call the vet and tell them exactly what you told us here. Let the vet decide if a lower dose is in order, or perhaps a change of medication entirely. Perhaps he is allergic or other reasons you don't know about. Lowering the dose would mean it wouldn't do what it is supposed to do, so there's really no point anyway. Good luck.

That is 100% a question for the vet. Why don't you call them, they'll probably give you advice over the phone and save you the trip in. Answered by Rosaline Salamacha 3 months ago.
I think you should ask the vet that prescribed it. Answered by Sena Schwart 3 months ago.
Antibiotic Amoxil vs Zytromax?
Asked by Latoya Dokken 3 months ago.
Amoxil and Zithromax are both Antibacterials. Amoxil's generic name is amoxicillin which is under the penicillin group. While Zithromax's generic name is Azythromycin, which is under the macrolide group of antibiotics. Both are used for upper respiratory infection but Zithromax is more potent. Answered by Latashia Costner 3 months ago.
Zithromax and amoxicillin are both drugs which are classified as antibiotics. Antibiotics act by killing bacteria in our system. We may have taken them when we were hospitalized, but we unknowingly know their mechanism of action and their side effects. Zithromax is a brand of azithromycin. It is said to be the best-selling antibiotic in the US. It is an azalide under the classification of macrolide antibiotics. It is sold world-wide under different generic and brand names. Amoxicillin, on the other hand, is also an antibiotic. It is classified under penicillins which is a glycopeptide. The mechanism of action is simple. It prevents bacterial growth by destroying the cell wall of these bacteria. It can be taken through a tablet, an oral suspension, or through an IV or injection. Amoxicillin is indicated as well for patients with lung infections, ear infections, and throat infections Amoxicillin, on the other hand, is also an antibiotic.

It can be taken through a tablet, an oral suspension, or through an IV or injection. Amoxicillin is indicated as well for patients with lung infections, ear infections, and throat infections. The side effects of amoxicillin may include vomiting, nausea, and rashes. If a patient is allergic to amoxicillin, he or she must be brought immediately to the hospital because the allergy would spread fast in the body. Answered by Yulanda Tornese 3 months ago.

I know urine is not supposed to smell great but I guess the way I understand, with a UTI, it will make normal urine smell worse(abnormal). So, I'm trying to find out why the Amoxil is not doing its' job. I only have today and tommoro and it would be the end of the 7 day (twice a day) treatment. I have drank so much water and cranberry juice it's crazy. Answered by Bradford Brier 3 months ago.
It is quite possible that the bacteria causing your UTI is resistant to Amoxil, which means that Amoxil won't get rid of it. The first few days you took the Amoxil, it probably seemed to help because it was killing all the bacteria that were susceptible to it. Now, all that's left are the resistant bacteria, which are growing in spite of the antibiotic, and causing your symptoms to come back. You'll probably have to go back to the doctor and get a different antibiotic, which the bacteria are not resistant to. The doctor may have to do a urine culture to find out which antibiotic will work the best. Good luck! Answered by Ramon Lapointe 3 months ago.
I m having a sore throat should i take amoxil capsules?
my throat is paining and it feels like something heavy and thorny is lying in my throat....
Asked by Shirl Niedermaier 3 months ago.
No, you should not take Amoxil capsules unless they are prescribed by a physician. Antibiotics only work against certain bacteria, and unless your sore throat is caused by a bacteria that Amoxil works against, it will do nothing and may also increase bacterial resistance to the antibiotic. This could make antibiotics less effective in the future when you really need them to treat a condition. For a sore throat, you could try taking either acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin). If you are concerned that it may be more than just a sore throat, I would contact a physician as they can rule out if it is anything more serious. Answered by Loura Soprych 3 months ago.
Does amoxil hel sore throat?
I have amoxil because I was prescribed amoxil a long time ago and I never took it.
Asked by Kirstie Gunterman 3 months ago.
No Amoxil will not help your sore throat. Put about half a teaspoon of table salt into 4-6 ozs of warm water and gargle. Gargle as often as you feel you need to. Try not to swallow too much of the salted water though. Answered by Rodrigo Korbin 3 months ago.
Most sore throats are viral, and simple measures like salt water gargles, Tylenol, Advil or other OTC meds may help with symptom relief. I might ask why do you even have Amoxil?? If you have strep throat...which would need to be diagnosed by a health professional...then antibiotics are often given. If you have mono, also a virus, then taking antibiotics may cause a severe rash. You should never take antibiotics without a doctors recommendation....and you should never take antibiotics that you have lying around the house. They should be disposed of at the pharmacy Answered by Manuel Simko 3 months ago.
no Take 1 tsp fresh ginger juice, ½ tsp honey and a pinch of turmeric. Take this mixture thrice a day. Drinking warm milk to which a pinch of turmeric and a teaspoon of sugar are added also helps to soothe your throat. Answered by Son Hally 3 months ago.

My son has had mild conjunctivitis for about 2 weeks. One week of tobrex eye drops did not seem to improve his eye, so I stopped for a week. During this week he spat out two solid green mucous bits. (yuk!) He has been really well otherwise. So I went back to the doctor - she put him on amoxil and said to start the tobrex again. After two days I have run out of tobrex and I am wondering whether the amoxil will treat the conjunctivitis anyway - does anyone know? Or do I need to go back and get another prescription? It is his birthday today and I really did not want to sit in a docs office if the amoxil would work anyway. Answered by Bettye Tomich 3 months ago.
Conjunctivitis is irritation or inflammation of the lining of the eye lids, the conjunctiva. It is caused by infection (viral or bacteria), allergy or chemical agents. Tobrex (tobramycin) is an aminoglycoside class antibiotic that is effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria, including organisms resistant or not treated with amoxil (amoxicillin). I would follow the doctor's instructions for my child or myself and obtain and continue the medicines as instructed until or unless the physician changes them. Rather than go to the doctor's office, first call the pharmacist, (not the employee helping the pharmacist but the licensed pharmacist) explain the situation and ask if the tobrex is refillable, if not would he/she kindly verify a refill order by phone. If you are unable to have the pharmacist verify the refill by phone, call the doctor's office and ask they phone in a refill for the tobrex. The amoxicillin was prescribed for what appears a secondary infection, a systemic antibiotic therapy. Answered by Michele Ackles 3 months ago.
Amoxil (with a capital A) isn't normally used to treat bacterial conjunctivitis. He may have a respiratory infection as well. I suggest you ask the doctor about the reason for the Amoxil. Just call her. And I have no idea how long your son is supposed to be on the Tobrex drops this time. Again, call his doctor and ask. You may need to have a refill phoned in to the pharmacy. Answered by Josephine Saadeh 3 months ago.
No, oral antibiotics will not treat conjunctivitis. Just call the dr's office and tell them you need a refill called in to your pharmacy. No need to see the dr again. Or check the box...he may have given you a refill anyway. Answered by Sherell Pesterfield 3 months ago.

Would they prescribe Amoxil for Strep throat..?
To a 3 year old. They gave my daughter Amoxil for her strep throat, and a basic cough med? Does this make sense to you?
Asked by Amos Cuaresma 3 months ago.
Yes, as LIFECOACH stated , it is from the penicillin family. Penicillin is the traditional treatment for strep. However, we have recently seen an increase in the penicillin resitant strep. So if your child is not showing some good improvement in 48-72 hours after beginning the amoxil, I would check back with your doc. Just pleae be sure to give it exactly as prescribed and be sure to give it for the prescribed amount of days. People haven't always followed the directions and that is why we are seeing alot of these drug resistant bacteria. Hope she gets better soon! The Chloroseptic throat strips work great for pain. Answered by Mimi Bareilles 3 months ago.
yes....it is a form of penicillin It is also good to have your child gargle some warm salt water to sooth their throat.... or...have plenty of ice-pops on hand so they can have some form of fluids that are good tasting and soothing.... Your baby will be better within the next 24 hrs.... But they won't really be over it for about a week! Answered by Eunice Rama 3 months ago.
