I am on antibiotics for this, and have been for a few days, but have been seeing a dr. on this for about a week. The infection is in the throat, nose, ears, and eyes, and I tend to cough at night. I am becoming more tired as time goes on, as well as more dizzy. Since it is the 4th of July weekend, I was wondering what symptoms I should be watching out for to make sure that it doesn't spread even worse? When do I need to go to the hospital?

Asked by Joellen Vilkama 5 months ago.
docts will only prescribe u certain Rx during ur pregnancy. a doct will NOT give a Rx that will be bad for u and the baby this is what i found, what its used for. if ur not sure about a Rx ur taking stop taking it and call another doct for a second opinion or call a pharmicist Sultamicillin is well absorbed and diffuses readily into most tissues and fluids in the human body. Penetration into brain and spinal fluid is low except when meninges are inflamed, high concentrations of sulbactam and ampicillin.The are achieved in the blood, and both components have a half-life of one hour. Most of the sulbactam and ampicillin is excreted unchanged in the urine. < Indications: Sultamicillin is indicated for infections caused by susceptible microorganisms e.g.: ►Upper respiratory tract infections including sinusitis, otitis media and tonsillitis. ►Lower respiratory tract infections including bacterial pneumonias and bronchitis. ►Urinary tract infections and Pyelonephritis. ►Skin and soft tissue infections and gonococcal infections. Sultamicillin injection is also used for intra-abdominal infections including peritonitis, cholecystitis, endometritis, pelvic Cellulitis,bacterial septicemia, and also pre - operatively to reduce the incidence of postoperative wound infections.

This isn't really "personal" experience, but I worked with a woman a few years ago who got pregnant.(Married, I think she was 25 or 26 at the time). She was just starting to show, so I'll say she was probably at least three months; and one night I saw her moving a shipper(a display of product, set on a wooden pallet) by hand, i.e. dragging it into a new position across the floor. Not much, just a few feet or so, and perhaps this would have happened anyway, but when I came into work the next day the manager informed us that she'd had a miscarriage.

Some antibiotics are too strong for a pregnant woman to take, in fact your doctor should give you a list of "ok" drugs to take and ones that can harm the fetus. If your doctor prescribed you an antibiotic, and knows you are pregnant, I would assume it is safe. However, you can always double check with your pharmacist Answered by Benedict Bro 5 months ago.
Sorry, have never heard of it. Before taking anything I'd talk to your doctor. I know when I was pregnant my doctor did NOT want me to take amoxycillin (another antibiotic). But each one is different so I'd check to be sure. Check out www.motherrisk.com. It's a Canadian website (sorry, I don't know of any US ones, but maybe do a search) associated with The Hospital for Sick Children, one of the leading childrens' hospitals in the world. It may help.

Sweetie you asked this before. Noone on here can tell you what i safe for YOU to take. We do not know you medical hitory or your pregnancy history. Please ask you doc.

You have to go over these things with your doc while you are pregnant. Don't just assume something is safe and take it. Be smart and talk with doc ASAP if you don't know for sure.

How do scientists combat antibiotic-resistant bacteria?
question says it all
Asked by Theodora Jurcik 5 months ago.
some bacteria destroy penicillin like drugs. The penicillins have a beta lactam ring. Some antbiotics are combined with other drugs. This way the bacteria will try to destroy the other compound and the penicillin will last longer. One such drug is called Unasyn it contains the drug ampicillin which is a well known drug with sulbactam which protects the ampicillin. Augmentin is amoxicillin with clavulanate the clavulanate protects the amoxicillin from being broken down. Another way to protect the beta lactam ring is to change it's chemical structure. For example by substituting a carbon in the beta lactam ring where there is a sulfur group you get a class of drugs called carbapenems. carba means carbon. These drugs are more resistant to being destroyed. Answered by Troy Eguizabal 5 months ago.
Strep belly button infection not responding to bactrim ds treatment?

I have been seen for a belly button infection that after swab of puss was found to be a strep infection. dr put me on antiobiotic regimine of Bactrim DS for 14 days. today is day 10 and the infection is still present along w/ blood. Looking for insight as to what else could be going on if antibiotic isn't working and there is still blood? Answered by Jacinto Nolan 5 months ago.
I would not have chosen to treat a Streptococcus-induced skin infection with Bactrim. It would not be a drug of choice. First choice would be amoxicillin or Augmentin (amoxicillin/potassium clavulanate ) or a cephalosporin (1st generation would be fine). Alternatives are: ampicillin/sulbactam (Unasyn), clindamycin or vancomycin or erythromycin- clarithromycin (Biaxin) - azithromycin (Zithromax). This all hinges on the sensitivity pattern and the Group designation of the Strep (Group A,B, C, G, S, etc). You need to revisit the physician; report the negative effect of the Bactrim and have him/her try another antibiotic. Bactrim may have been the first choice since Staphylococcus aureus comes to mind first when considering cellulitis infections. I wouldn't wait long to follow up with your doctor. Streptococcus can be a fast moving infection with dire consequences. Answered by Ward Dockstader 5 months ago.

What antibiotics would you prescribed a patient with septicemia, gram pos. cocci?
forgot to add that it's gram positive staph cocci
Asked by Bruno Larriviere 5 months ago.
It depends on what the common bacteria are in that particular population. Some hospitals or communities have higher rates of resistant bacteria and those would need to be covered. In a septic patient you would want a broad spectrum antibiotic to cover resistant organisms until culture results are final. I would go with vancomycin to cover the possibility of MRSA. You would need to follow vanco levels carefully because this patient has CKD and vanco is known to cause renal failure. If you choose an antibiotic from the penicillin family you would want a more advanced generation like Unasyn (ampicillin/sulbactam) or even Zosyn (piperacillin/ tazobactam), these however do not cover MRSA. If there is high suspicion of MRSA given the population you can also consider linezolid as it will cover MRSA without the renal concerns that vanco has, it is very expensive though.

you need to ask the doc to review your lab results with you. in all my life, I have NEVER seen a lab report for MRSA say "inconclusive". And this is my job - it's all I do every day. no cause for concern -- it likely means a confusing lab report that you need help interpreting. in the world of staph infection , the bug is either MRSA, or is not - there really is no in-between. was it resistant to cefazolin, oxacillin, ampicillin-sulbactam? if so, it is MRSA. was it sensitive to all three? if so , it clearly is NOT MRSA Answered by Yong Tak 5 months ago.
I'm not exactly sure I understand the way the question is worded. I think that an "inconclusive" below the MRSA means that it is hard to tell whether that form of staph is truly resistant to methicillin. Methicillin is an antibiotic, and if the staph is resistant to that, it is a very virulent infection. Answered by Gwen Pyle 5 months ago.

Usually you'd begin see some results from Bactrim in about 48 hours, so you're just about at that time frame. Make sure you drink plenty of liquids, a juice like cranberry juice is especially good for the bladder. If you aren't beginning to show some improvement by tomorrow afternoon, then I'd say to definitely call your doctor to tell him you aren't feeling any better. Perhaps the bacteria causing your UTI isn't sensitive to Bactrim and resistant to it. If that happened to be the case, your doctor can start you on an alternative.

Bactrim DS is a brand name for an extra-strength antibiotic medication. The drug contains a combination of trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole. Doctors commonly prescribe Bactrim DS for bacterial infections of the ears and respiratory or gastrointestinal systems. Despite its effectiveness at eliminating harmful bacteria, Bactrim DS poses a risk for side effects in some patients. Some patients develop life-threatening kidney problems from taking Bactrim DS, warns U.S. National Library of Medicine. Among the possible renal complications are kidney failure and inflammation of the interior structures within your kidneys. The risk of developing kidney problems while taking Bactrim increases when the drug is combined with the immuno-suppressant medication cyclosporine. Maybe you can try the Chinese medicine which is totally harmless and has no side effects.

While two answerers are correct about the tests and possible causes and seeing a urologist, it could just be that your course of antibiotics was not long enough. Often after an infection your body is unable to protect itself from infectious insult again until it has fully healed. The blood in the urine could be from residual infection and you may require a course as long as three months or longer to be sure you are fully healed. The other tests would also be done (cytology/NMP22 to look for cancer cells shed by the urinary tract, CT scan to look for any abnormalities of the kidneys and ureters [you would need a blood test for kidney function first], and cystoscopy to look for abnormalities in the bladder).

According to your condition, take too much bactrim will let renal toxicity increase, that will lead to kidney damage. I suggest you'd better to take a kidney function test, that can help us make sure whether your kidney was damage or not.
