A Question About Amoxicillin?

My daughter developed a UTI late one night after the pediatrician's office was closed. She has gotten them before and presently has a referral to a urologist. The night this happened I also was dealing with my other child who was alot worse off than her and needed constant attention. So, I gave her over the counter AZO (pyridium) and some cranberry tablets I had on hand. It did not work and she was bent over, crying and in alot of pain. I also made her drink alot of water. So I rummaged through the cabinet and came across some amoxicillin. She'd taken it before so I knew she was not allergic and I knew that I had been given Augmentin for a UTI a couple of times which is mainly Amoxicillin...of course it has Clavalanate (spelling) in it too. But it was all I had on hand in the middle of the night and an hour after she took it she was able to urinate. The next morning I gave her another dose and she urinated again so I sent her to school. Maybe not the best option but I was still dealing with my other child and she really seemed to be doing better. Well, later that afternoon it started all over again and she was in alot of pain, distended, unable to urinate. Pediatrician's office closed early this day so I took her to an after hours pediatric clinic. The physician was horrible! Everything I said he came back with a sarcastic reply even though I told him what I did and why. He commented that the amoxicillin that she'd been prescribed in the past might have been for an earache but not for a UTI. Then he said, that's like trying to cure cancer with Amoxicillin! Then he went on and on about how I screwed up the urine culture by giving her the antibiotic because of course they have to get a sample of urine first. I felt so beat down and bullied by the way he kept telling me I did everything wrong and he wouldn't let it drop either. He asked me about 20 times, "well, how do you KNOW she has a UTI? What makes you think she has a UTI??? I told him because she's bent over can barely walk, crying from pain cause she needs to urinate and can't. He said, well she doesn't have a fever or chills, or flank pain or blood in her urine does she? I told him I've had several UTI ' s in the past and so has my sister and alot of women that I work with and we've said many times during conversations that none of us has ever had any symptom except a distended bladder and a strong urge to urninate but couldn't. He then interrogated me about when was the last time she had one and did she actually get diagnosed with a urinalysis. I said, Yes, about 6 weeks ago. The he said, "and where was this at?" When I told him he actually wrote the doctor's name down. He acted like I was lying for whatever reason I don't know, but for a simple antibiotic? I mean he never even introduced himself when he walked in he just started interrogating us with a scowl on his face. I will never go back there again. But, please, this has bothered me so much that I just want someone to tell me what I did wrong. Does anyone think that what I did was that wrong? The only alternative would have been to go to the ER and we've already been there 5 times this past year due to everyone in my family has been taking their turn...but it always takes at least 5 or 6 hours to be seen. I've been an ICU nurse for 26 years and I wanted to help my daughter the best I could and it did seem to get her through the night and most of the next day....besides, sometimes I've seen doctors prescribe medications that didn't work and had to prescribe something else so why did that doctor act like I was a criminal and talk to me like that??? I felt insulted to the point that I finally gave up and the last couple times he repeated, "what makes you think she has a UTI? I just shrugged my shoulders and said, "I don't know". I was tired of getting shot down with every question he asked. I should have told him, "no, it may not cure cancer but it sure doesn't give a person a nasty disposition either. I keep wondering if I missed something......I am always overly nice to ANY person that I have an appointment with so I know I was not rude. So why was he so rude to me? Do you think I deserved it? Thanks for anybody who may have comments to share. And if you google amoxicillin or urinary tract infection it does say that it is prescribed for bladder infections and until recent years it was the first line drug of choice for many years til they came out with Augmentin (which has amoxicillin in it) and some newer drugs. But I don't think that by giving her a dose or two of Amoxicillin to see if it would give her some relief was that far fetched and it did give her relief for awhile. Anybody have any thoughts???? Thanks alot. Answered by Mitzie Mallen 1 year ago.

Bactrim is usually the drug of choice for a UTI. The Amoxicillin will probably affect the urine culture, so that an accurate diagnosis can not be obtained. The only thing you did wrong here was to give an antibiotic that really was not indicated. Also, antibiotics don't work on 1 or 2 or 3 doses - you need the full course of treatment - sometimes 7 days, sometimes 10 days. Taking Amoxicillin can (especially only a couple of doses) when it's not indicated can encourage the growth of non-susceptible organisms. Also, you should not have any old antibiotics in the house - they should have all been taken for the last reason they were prescribed. Somebody didn't finish their full course of antibiotic therapy if there were spare amoxicillin tabs laying around. OK - all that being said, I understand completely your train of thought. Your child was in pain, and you wanted to help. You gave a medication for what you assumed is a bacterial infection. Any good mother wants to see their child healthy and out of pain ASAP. The docor WAS very rude to you - and there's really no good excuse for that. You did not deserve to be interrogated as though you had commited some sort of child abuse, when all you were doing was trying to help your daughter. I sympathize with you 100% - the doctor was wrong to treat you in this manner. I hope he will see that this is not the proper "bedside manner", and adjust his attitude in the future. ((((HUGS))) Hope your child is ok! Answered by Matthew Codd 1 year ago.

Sounds like he was just being a jerk.. While yes generally you shouldn't take medications that haven't been prescribed to you for that particular thing at that particular time, in this case it was completely understandable-and usually an antibiotic is prescribed for an infection anyway so... I wouldn't worry about it-you did what you had to and she was better off being temporarily better than being in a terrible state all night. Answered by Hang Whitfill 1 year ago.

antibiotics should be used always and only under medical prescription. Answered by Jung Varrelman 1 year ago.


Can sulfamethoxarole be used in cats?
Asked by Denita Durrani 1 year ago.

Trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole are two antibiotics that work together to create an optimal effect. Trimethoprim’s method of action is to block the production of tetrahydrofolic acid from dihydrofolic acid by binding to and reversibly inhibiting the enzyme dihydrofolate reductase. This binding is much stronger for the bacterial enzyme than the corresponding mammalian enzyme. Sulfamethoxazole inhibits bacterial synthesis of dihydrofolic acid by competing with para-aminobenzoic acid. Thus the combination of trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole inhibits two consecutive steps in the production of nucleic acids and proteins. Trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole is a prescription drug and can only be obtained from a veterinarian or by prescription from a veterinarian. This drug is registered for use in humans, dogs, horses, cattle, and swine. Human formulations: Bactrim® (Roche), Septra® (GlaxoWellcome), Cotrim Pediatric® (Lemmon), Sulfatrim® (URL and others), and generic preparations of Trimethoprim and Sulfamethoxazole. Veterinary formulations: Tribrissen® and Tribrissen 400 Oral Paste (Schering-Plough), Di-Biotic® (Phoenix Pharmaceutical), Albon® (Pfizer Animal Health), Uniprim® Powder (Macleod), Tucoprim® Powder (Pharmacia & Upjohn), Borgal® (Hoechst), and generics Trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole should not be used in animals with known hypersensitivity or allergy to these or other sulfa drugs. Trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole should not be used in pregnant animals. While generally safe and effective when prescribed by a veterinarian, trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole can cause side effects in some animals. The following are known side effects organized by organ system: Hematologic: Agranulocytosis, aplastic anemia, thrombocytopenia, leukopenia, neutropenia, hemolytic anemia, megaloblastic anemia, hypoprothrombinemia, methemoglobinemia, eosinophilia. Allergic Reactions: Epidermal necrolysis, anaphylaxis, allergic myocarditis, erythema multiforme, exfoliative dermatitis, angioedema, drug fever, purpura, serum sickness-like syndrome, generalized allergic reactions, generalized skin eruptions, photosensitivity, conjunctival and scleral injection, pruritus, urticaria, and rash. In addition, periarteritis nodosa and systemic lupus erythematosus have been reported in humans. Gastrointestinal: Hepatitis, including cholestatic jaundice and hepatic necrosis, elevation of serum transaminases and bilirubin, pseudomembranous enterocolitis, pancreatitis, stomatitis, glossitis, nausea, emesis, abdominal pain, diarrhea, anorexia. Genitourinary: Renal failure, interstitial nephritis, BUN and serum creatinine elevation, toxic nephrosis with oliguria and anuria, and crystalluria. Metabolic: Hyperkalemia, hyponatremia. Neurologic: Aseptic meningitis, convulsions, peripheral neuritis, ataxia, vertigo, tinnitus, headache. CNS: Depression, apathy, anxiety. Endocrine: Cross-sensitivity may exist with diuretics (acetazolamide and the thiazides), and oral hypoglycemic agents. Diuresis and hypoglycemia have occurred in human patients receiving sulfonamides. Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole combination has been demonstrated to reduce thyroid hormone levels to below the normal reference range. Musculoskeletal: Arthralgia and myalgia. Respiratory System: Cough, dyspnea, and pulmonary infiltrates. Answered by Loriann Boyt 1 year ago.

I have a 6 year old little girl. We have been to so many pediatric specialists, and have not really gotten any clear answers or diagnosis for what has been going on with her. The only thing we get is this doctor treats this, and that doctor treats that, but nothing is being done for her overall health. I can't keep from feeling that no one is looking at the big picture! We have been to a nephrologist, a neurologist, a urologist, and a gastroenterologist as well as being sent to the emergency room twice in order for tests to be run. Here is what is (and has been) going on: Meningitis at 4 weeks old RSV at 4 months old Gastric reflux as an infant lactose intolerant as an infant Febrile Seizure lasting 30 minutes at 9 months old SEVERE colic from 3-10 months of age foul urine odor at least 25 UTIs, 9-10 of which has been since September 2007 several strep episodes, 3 in the last year delay in speech (did not talk until 3 years) nocturnal enuresis (severe) bladder incontinence bowel incontinence (just since Jan. 2008) SEVERE fecal blockages and buildups in the colon, suspected motility complications acne a few pubic hairs just starting to notice some facial and nose hairs VERY oily skin and hair, hair has odor when oily dandruff brown skin patches bruises and scars easily overweight (she currently weighs 97 pounds, she has gained 12 pounds since Christmas 2007, lost 3 this past week) Small appetite More recently confusion and difficulty concentrating and unable to follow simple directions, we think as a side effect of the medications Things we are doing and tests that have been run: Barium enema MRI abdominal x-ray rectal muscle tone test currently in urology bio-feedback therapy going to gastroenterology therapy in May Taking Detrol, doxozosin, and macrodantin, and 2 capfuls of Miralax daily since March 1, 2008 Since being on the macrodantin, has had one UTI and put on Bactrim She is going to the restroom to urinate every 90 minutes during the day and I wake her up 2 times per night Also during the day she sits on the toilet for 10 minutes 3 times per day to try to have a bowel movement I am currently trying to research if there are any syndromes or whatever that might encompass a lot of these symptoms. Her therapist strongly encouraged me yesterday to try to get another MRI done and possible see a pediatric endocrinologist or try to find an internest. I am a single mom, and her father does carry insurance for her, so any more tests would be ok. I would just to get a point in the right direction possibly. I truly feel that there has not been one doctor who has truly looked at the whole picture except for the nephrologist, but it was clearly out of his area of expertise. Please help if you can!!! Answered by Hugh Thoeny 1 year ago.

This is just for information - when I was ill - my body suffered from side effects from the medications I was taking - I changed the meds and the side effects would switch to something new. The medical profession knows about these effects - but prescribe the medication anyway with the idea that the results will be more beneficial than not taking the meds. Answered by Tamesha Caren 1 year ago.

Have you tested her for celiac disease, she may have a food intolerance to wheat/gluten if she's having gastrointestinal problems. The medications she's on could be causing all the other problems one after the other. Try and take her off some of the meds and treat or test everything one at a time if possible. She has been through a lot for a 3 year old. The doctors will treat her and fix the problem temporarily but are not getting to the point. I would keep getting second and third opinions and so on until you finally get an answer. Answered by Raymundo Pellham 1 year ago.

It sounds complicated and is probably frustrating for you. I suggest that you take her to Mayo clinic in Rochester, Minn. for a complete diagnostic. I really like the way it is set up. She will see a primary doctor who will listen to the symptoms and then schedule appts for her to see various specialists. The specialists will see her, run tests, consult with other physicians (a team) and send the results back to to original doctor, who will discuss the results with you. The process words very smoothly and they give a quick and accurate diagnosis. I went to Mayo after doctors in 2 different states could not diagnose a condition that I have. So did my mother, an uncle, and a friend. We all left Mayo Clinic with answers! Mayo also works with several out of state insurance companies, so you may be able to get full or partial reimbursement for the trip. It is definitely worth it. Good luck! Answered by Nicol Steenburg 1 year ago.

I don't know where you live, but in almost every state there is a major children's hospital..We live in Florida and have Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. I would start looking for answers from there. Do a web search for specialist from the hospital and e-mail them all......Make sure that you have ALL your test results and medical records to take with you on your first visit. Write everything done about you daughter that is different...add to it as you think of them...once at the doctors office we all tend to forget many things that just might be the clue...

My prayers go out to you and your daughter. Have you taken her to the Mayo Clinic. As I understand they do extensive exams. Have had friends go to Rochester for their illnesses. Hope this helps. Lord, I Continue to pray for Gods touch on this family. Be with them, guide them in the right direction for help with their child. With your child GOD. Help the Doctors find the problem and cure for this child. Give her family peace and comfort through all they are going through. Protect and watch over her in Jesus Holy name. Amen.

Recurring mouth ulcers help please?
i've seen the first answer to this,& wanted to say that i know they tested for any herpes or std and it came up negative. i'm not sure what stomach infection i had, but one medication i was on was called Bactrum (bactrim?idk) and the other medication was some long m name i dont remember.if you want to... Asked by Claude Voges 1 year ago.

Okay, im 14 now (turning 15 soon) and i have had recurring mouth ulcers for more than two years. i will get them every single month two-five at a time. i get them on my tongue and all over my mouth but i have never had any kind of cold sore or sore outside of my mouth they have always been inside. when its really bad, ill have from 7-10 in my mouth and the doctor and orthodontist told me they are common and probably from a virus or stress related. Well, then i got a vaginal ulcer. It was so painful and scary because i had no idea how i could get one there, i'm a virgin and haven't had any kind of oral sex or anything basically so i went to my doctors office and got his assistant to look at it and she and him agreed that it couldn't be any kind of herpes or std because i am a virgin and they said it was probably something called apthous ulcers..? i think that was causing all of this. but they sent me to a pediatric gyno anyways who swabbed it and tested it. they didnt know what caused it but they didnt think it could be anything serious. test results came back from the swab and my gyno found two different stomach infections i was having and put me on medicine for them. So, i was taking two medications to fight off infections (one that gave me a nasty rash too) but still i got sick with fever and sore throat. i get sore throat/fever all the time but i never throw up usually. still my mom was worried and took me to the doctor. they were confused and didnt know how it was possible that i got sick because i was taking medication for infections. (i guess is was viral? i didn't really understand) they said i had some "mapping" on my tongue (my tongue was white and nasty looking) but i always get that when i have a sore throat. so they sent me to childrens hospital to get blood taken for testing. a week later, my doctor called saying my numbers were "off" and so they sent me to the infectious disease clinic in childrens hospital. this past week i went there and had to tell them about my ulcers and normal questions they had about my period and my vaginal ulcers (i had gotten another one in the same place after the first one went away) i had one of my ulcers that was popping up in my mouth swabbed and got more blood taken. they havent called back with the results yet sorry this is so long i just really want help and wanted to explain everything. the only symptoms i have now is that i am very tired and i get dizzy when i stand up (this has been happening for a long time) i get recurring ulcers andd thats about it. the doctors at the infectious disease clinic were asking me about something with my bowels acting up and they do act up sometimes but not like all the time so i didn't really have anything to say about it. i've been reading online and i'm guessing it is just the common apthous ulcers i just wanted someone else to confirm or share anything else that could be causing this & yes i do drink a lot of soda, but i cut it out completely at one point (& other acids)and still got them. i dont drink as much as i used to. & yes i do have braces, but i had been getting the ulcers before i had gotten my braces and i dont know how they could've rubbed up against my mouth this much and my orthodontist told me that the braces weren't the problem..& im getting them off soon. so thats all i have to say. and please answer this i know its not really a big deal i just want to know whats wrong Answered by Usha Clopp 1 year ago.

Answered by Ahmad Malloch 1 year ago.

Okay you don't have your emails on I would prefer to email you since I don't know the answer but since you have no answer yet I have an idea for you (if you edit saying you've saw this i'll delete it so it says your question is still unanswered and might catch people's attention..) I am guessing that you have basically an autoimmune problem, if you look up those ulcers it should mention something called Chron's disease, which is diagnosed with a blood test. Coeliac disease too which is also diagnosed with a blood test, and people with these usually have stomach problems including that they get stomach infections. So it could be that. Sounds like a big deal to me sounds horrible. The fever, and the ulcers too actually...could be related to your hormones esepecially as it happens once a month. They are rarer PMS symptoms. You can google that. I am not sure how many blisters women can get from PMS if it is a just a few or can be as bad as yours. Nor do I know if you can get them on the vagina so you'd need to look that up yourself. You can also get herpes without sex or coldsores (you can get it from family) the only way to rule it out really is to be tested. You can also have the virus in you and spread it without any outbreaks. You can also have touched one of your mouth ulcers and then touched down below and spread it down there yourself. If the outbreaks are so often it was probably bound to happen since girls need to touch down there more than you'd think. If you touch your ulcers wash your hands afterwards or preferably don't touch them at all. Maybe one of your stomach infections is Helicobacter Pylori, you have to be on more than 1 medication for that, and when it kills it off you might feel sicker at first, also antibiotics can be quite harsh on people and make them ill. Just an idea. Do a quick edit and I'll delete this. You can paste the text into a blank email and save it to your drafts if you want to remember/ look up the things I mentioned. Don't worry about soda. If you are wondering what's going on please ask your doctors or get your mum to ask for the names of what you have or are being tested for. You have the right to be informed (but I wouldn't tell them you're googling it all lol) If it was celiac disease they will tell you certain foods you can't eat (a gluten free diet). Answered by Kristal Keithly 1 year ago.

If he is eating a lot of high-acid foods (like tomatoes or too many sodas) that could cause mouth ulcers. Check his diet and see if that may be the case. I hope this helps? Answered by Briana Diaco 1 year ago.


Questions regarding my cancer treatment?
So, I was just diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma a little over a month ago (I'm 17).

Asked by Scot Laforest 1 year ago.

So, I was just diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma a little over a month ago (I'm 17). I've had many of my chemotherapy treatments and have lost my hair and it's beginning to grow back already even though I still have some chemo treatments left (not sure how many left yet, won't know until my next CT/PET scan). I was wondering: is all of this fuzz that is growing back on my head just going to fall out again after my next treatment? Also: is my hair going to grow back any differently after I'm through with chemotherapy? I also have a few questions about proton beam therapy, as I will be receiving the whole proton beam thing instead of radiation. I've read about it and looked at the ProCure website (because I will be treated at the ProCure center in Illinois), and I also have a meeting thing with the proton beam therapy people this week at the center, but I'd like to hear about it from someone who has experienced it, or knows someone who has experienced it first-hand. I dunno, I'm sure I can get some really good answers about the whole proton beam process when I go in for my consultation, but I'd just like some more information sooner. I'm curious and pretty excited about it. It sounds kinda cool! OH, and one more thing: I have one of those implantable ports in my chest. How soon do they remove it after treatment, and does it leave a big scar? Sorry if this is a bit much...but if anyone can help me out with any of this, that would be great. Thanks! Answered by Paz Melder 1 year ago.

A lot of these questions can be best answered by your doctor or nurse practitioner. Most of them have no concrete answer. Your hair may come out again with the next round of chemo. It's not uncommon. It's impossible to tell what it will come back like when it fully comes back. I know people who have had it come back exactly the same, slightly different (maybe a little wavy instead of straight, a slightly different shade), and a lot different (curly instead of straight.) It's pretty normal for the fuzz you have now to not be what your hair will be like when it comes back for good- a lot of my patients call it chemo hair when the fuzz comes back while on chemo. I don't have personal experience with proton beam therapy, and my patients who have had it have all been very young (under 4) and had sedation for radiation. It doesn't hurt, but very little kids can't stay still long enough for even a few minutes of radiation, hence the sedation. It actually is a really cool improvement in treatment and I'm glad you're excited about it. That helps! You can ask them when you go in for your consult- or even call them up beforehand- if there is someone close to your age who has gone through the proton beam therapy who would be willing to talk to you. Are you being treated in general in a pediatric oncology center or adult? (I know the proton beam center is not pediatric, but I mean where you're getting chemo.) If pediatric, ask your child life specialist, social worker, doctor, NP, nurse, whoever if there is someone willing to talk. I'd imagine in an adult setting you could ask the medical and support staff, as well. I have a mental list of teens who are willing to talk about treatment and cancer with new patients, and I'm sure the staff in your center does the same thing. For the port- this really depends on the doctor. Some doctors choose to leave it in for quite a while due to using it for scans (is it a power port? are you able to have contrast through it for scans?) Other doctors want it out almost immediately because that will cut down infection risk. And some are in between, and want to keep it in for 3 or 6 months if you're getting prophylactic IV antibiotics.The antibiotics go on for a little while after treatment, until your counts are pretty well recovered. This, of course, applies only in the case that you are on prophylactic antibiotics (oral- Bactrim/Septra, Mepron, etc. IV- pentamadine.) Do you have a scar now from when they put the port in? You'll still have that scar (often on the neck) and likely another small scar right over where the port is now. These scars are usually quite small and they will fade. I'm sorry, I know I couldn't provide concrete answers. But they really differ depending on the treatment center, the doctor, and the patient. Answered by Adella Speedy 1 year ago.

I guess it's so new, that nobody on ya has been treated with it...Your 3 answers, disregard lol. 2 1/2 years ago I was treated with standard radiation therapy and I wish I had known about this one. It sounds so much better with less damage to healthy tissues. My radiation basically affected my whole brain, but for a small portion. Go with it! Write down any questions that come to mind so you won't forget when you get there. I don't know about the ports, as my chemo was in pill form. Hopefully someone here will chime in on that question. Good luck! You're gonna be fine! not truesnap's though! Answered by Brandie Keppler 1 year ago.

You can greatly increase your chances of success if you'd treat yourself for dehydration because cancer is caused by severe dehydration. All of the trillions of cells in the body need vital nutrients to function properly. These nutrients are delivered by water (combined with salt). When you don't drink enough water to satisfy the body's needs, the cells don't get the nutrients they need. And they don't get the toxins removed - this is one of salt's main functions in the body, and if water isn't getting to the cells, neither is the salt. These toxic cells turn acidic, and begin to malfunction. Disease thrives in an acidic environment, and this is the reason you've developed the cancer. Disease also thrives on sugar. If you're drinking a lot of soft drinks, this will also account for your condition because soft drinks and other water substitutes dehydrate the body. Unfortunately, so do most chemo treatments. While their intentions are good, chemo treatments destroy healthy cells as well as cancerous cells. Most doctors would never subject their own families to chemotherapy. But you've had no other option, so I only hope it hasn't caused irreversible damage. Click on the link below and start using the water and salt therapy. I know "water" and "salt" doesn't sound like it would ever cure anything, and this is what the medical profession is dumping into people's heads. But water and salt are two of the most important nutrients your body uses to sustain life. Only oxygen is more important. Water and salt make up 75% of the body's tissues, 85% of the brain and 94% of the blood. They wouldn't be this plentiful if they didn't play such a vital role maintaining people's health. When the body is in perfect balance - when the immune system is perfectly intact, it is impossible to get any diseases. The body was created with a built-in mechanism to take care of itself, given that the proper tools are made available. We were supplied with every nutrient needed to prevent health problems - all we have to do is make sure that we replenish these nutrients on a daily basis. But we don't, and this is why health problems are such an issue. Answered by Lanelle Thivener 1 year ago.
