Can you get biaxin out of your body somehow?
Can you get biaxin out of someones body somehow? Asked by Arica Reksten 1 month ago.

Biaxin (clarithromycin) has a half-life of 3-4h and is metabolized in the liver and excreted by the kidneys. If either the liver or kidneys are damaged, it will take longer to get out. If someone overdosed on it, this would be another conversation but in general it is going to come out in a few hours. Basically by the time you read this there should be undetectable levels of biaxin in your body. If you really needed to get it out and you took it recently, activated charcoal is an easy way to get it out of your body. You could take rifampin (an anti-tuberculosis drug which speeds up the liver) to metabolize it faster. And you could drink more gatorade (or salt and sugar in water) to speed up things on the kidney side of the equation. Answered by Rozanne Gilbar 1 month ago.

So I got a sinus infection, and went to my doctor. She prescribed me Biaxin. I was not told to stay out of the sun, and because I did not know there were adverse effects to the combination of tanning and Biaxin, I went to the tanning bed a couple of days in a row. Now there are large blotchy red areas all over my arms and chest. I called my doctor and she told me to take Benadryl, which I have, but they seem to be getting persistently worse. I'm really concerned as to what's going on with my skin. I know well that tanning beds have a permanent effect on skin, I've been educated about the tanning beds, so a lecture would be most unappreciated. I would just like to know what exactly has happened to my skin, what I can do to treat it, and if there will be any long terms effects from the combination of the Biaxin and the tanning bed. Thanks!! Answered by Georgianne Preist 1 month ago.

Biaxin, like many, many, many other medications can cause a sensitivity to UV rays, (so tanning beds and sunlight), so when they say to avoid sun exposure, they mean it for a reason. No more tanning until your finished, and maybe even a few days afterwards to be on the safe side. But, it is an "allergic" type reaction, so continue on the Benadryl like the doctor suggested until it clears up. I will go away, so don't fret too much about it. You can use Benadryl cream on the areas or take Benadryl orally. If you're taking Benadryl pills, try the liquid kind for kids. There is adult dosing on the label. Also, wrap some cold wet rags on the areas for relief, but remember to moisturize afterwards. And stay out of the sun and tanning beds for now! Answered by Lottie Foste 1 month ago.


Biaxin & Cardizem Drug interactions?

Early this morning about 1:30am I experienced chest pains and had to use nitro for the first time in a long time. Last night I took Biaxin and Cardizem before going to bed. I know that there is a drug interaction with these two drugs. Could my early morning chest pains be the result of the drug interaction? I suffered a heart attack followed by an emergency bypass in 2001. I continued to have problems with chest pain and had 3 stents put in. About 2 or 3 years ago a new cardiologist discovered that I had actually been suffering with spasms of the arteries most likely brought on by ibuprofen and probably didn’t need the stents that had already been inserted. With med changes all my problems seem to resolve. So now I'm wondering if I'm having a relapse of my previous condition, something worse or a drug interaction. Unfortunately, I can't afford medical treatment until I've reached my deductible because my husband and I are losing our home and most everything else and will have to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Answered by Lesia Vichidvongsa 1 month ago.

It is likely that you experienced side effects of Biaxin (clarithromycin). Coadministration with Cardizem (diltiazem) may increase the plasma concentrations of drugs that are substrates of the CYP450 3A4 isoenzyme. The mechanism is decreased clearance due to inhibition of CYP450 3A4 activity by diltiazem. MANAGEMENT: Caution is advised if diltiazem must be used concomitantly with medications that undergo metabolism by CYP450 3A4 (such as clarithromycin). Dosage adjustments as well as clinical and laboratory monitoring may be appropriate for some drugs whenever diltiazem is added to or withdrawn from therapy. According to the mechanism explained above the levels of clarithromycin would be higher than expected in your system and therefore you experience it's side effects more. Side effects of clarithromycin are listed below. Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects: uneven heartbeats, chest pain, shortness of breath; diarrhea that is watery or bloody; nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes); fever, sore throat, and headache with a severe blistering, peeling, and red skin rash; or problems with your hearing. Less serious side effects may include: mild stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, upset stomach; unusual or unpleasant taste in your mouth; tooth discoloration; dizziness, headache, anxiety, confusion; skin rash; or vaginal itching or discharge. This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Tell your doctor about any unusual or bothersome side effect. I would advise you to see your doctor as soon as possible.

BIAXIN QUESTION PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ASAP?
Does Biaxin XL 500MG get rid of soar throats???????????? Asked by Arcelia Shalam 1 month ago.

No need to bring out the big guns for something simple. Biaxin is an antibiotic and won't do anything to soothe your throat or even help your condition if it's not bacterial. You can get rid of a simple sore throat with a much milder substance. Try lozenges, cough syrup with numbing properties, or hot tea with orange or honey. Of course, that's provided you know why your throat is sore. If you don't know the cause and it's not just a simple sore throat, you should probably see a doctor to make sure there's not something more serious going on like strep. Answered by Danyel Clute 1 month ago.

About 95% of sore throats are viral infections. You should never start yourself on an antibiotic on your own. Go to the doctor if you have had a sore throat more than 5 days or you have a high fever with it. They should do a strep culture if indicated. If + they will put you on the right type of antibiotic. Antibiotics don't kill viruses, they have to run their course. Try tylenol and warm salt water gargles. Answered by Divina Kolden 1 month ago.

It is for Strep throat if that is in fact what you have. Answered by Lindsay Berdan 1 month ago.
