My doctor gave me a generic form of the medicine ceftin because I got a sinus infection. And within 2 or 3 days of taking 250 mg tablets, twice daily, I noticed my moderate acne cleared up. I've had acne for about 4 years now on my face, chest and back, and I have tried numerous different prescriptions. Nothing has worked but now my skin is clear. Could this be from the ceftin? And can doctor prescribe ceftin for the treatment of acne? Has anyone else had a similar situation? Answered by Chung Chatt 3 months ago.

ceftin has an indication for skin infections in addition to sinus infections. if you skin was infected, this should clear it up. acne is caused by several things, one being an overabundance of p.acnes, the bacteria that is on everyone's face. antibiotics reduce this bacteria count so the acne lessens. it sounds like you should be on an oral antibiotic such as minocycline for about 6 months to see if this would help your acne. ask your doctor to write you a retinoid such as tretinoin to get rid of the black & whiteheads. 4 years is too long to suffer from acne. Answered by Cheryll Reisinger 3 months ago.

i would strongly suggest that you see your doctor because if you don't, then there is a possibility that if the acne is bad that you might scar your face permanently. if you have an unhealthy diet, then get healthy and see if it makes a difference. the toothpaste thing is a total myth, dont do it, because your face is most likely very sensitive since you have acne already. you may react even worst to putting a strong substance like toothpaste on your face. go to a toiletry store and see if you can find some cleanser for sensitive skin and try using that in the morning and evening for a week and see if if makes a difference. Ultimately, having acne is the body's way of expressing a chemical imbalance within your skin, so you do need to get to a doctor to rectify that imbalance either with cream, or with hormones like the pill (if you are a woman). sometimes it is an allergic reaction to something - i had a friend who got acne when he ate chocolate. worth thinking about whether there is something in your diet that may be giving you the acne.

Anybody taken the antibiotic Ceftin?
If you have, what did you think of it? I was reading the side effects on WebMD and some of them sound kind of scary. I took it a few hours ago and I haven't noticed any major problems with it. What's been your experience with it? Asked by Karleen Walvoord 3 months ago.

I am a physician who has prescribed Ceftin, a second generation (wider spectrum than first generation) cephalosporin antibiotic, for years with good results. The side effects are minimal and rarely a problem. Occasionally, people are allergic to it. And it will make you sick if you combine it with alcohol. But for most purposes, it is a good antibiotic and a good choice for respiratory (bronchitis, sinusitis, otitis), bladder, skin infections, gonorrhea and Lyme disease Don't be afraid of it. Or, for comparison, look up aspirin. It's just as scary. All package inserts are frightening. Answered by Gracie Kreisman 3 months ago.


Will ceftin cure ecoli ?
Asked by Micheline Saetern 3 months ago.

It is one drug that can be used to treat e. coli bacterial infections. However, there are various strains of e. coli some of which are resistant to cephalosporins such as ceftin. Often before a doctor prescribes an antibiotic they will take a swab of the infected area or fluid from the infected area and send it for sensitivity testing. The lab preforms tests to see what antibiotic the bacteria is susceptible to (ie what drug kills the bacteria) and then prescribe an antibiotic based on that. Some times the doctor can't wait for the results of the test to come back so they prescribe an antibiotic based on the knowledge that specific strains of bacteria often develop into specific types of infections (ie UTI as opposed to stomach flu). They will then either stay with that antibiotic if the sensitivity results show the bacteria is killed by that antibiotic or change it if the antibiotic is shown to be ineffective in killing the bacteria in the lab.

If I am allergic to amoxicillin, cefzil, septra and ceftin?
Can I take Omnicef? Asked by Candyce Ohland 3 months ago.

No, Omnicef is a cephalosporin like cefzil and ceftin. Looks like you cannot take any of the beta-lactam drugs, cephalosporin and penicillin class drugs. About 10% of people who are allergic to one of the beta-lactam antibiotic classes will be allergic to the other too. That is too bad, as probably 90% of all antibiotics fall into one of those two classes. But it is important to know. If you get a severe reaction, difficulty breathing and swelling, you need to get a medical alert bracelet to indicate your allergy to these drugs. Answered by Josette Vascocu 3 months ago.

those photos look like an allergic re-action . generally a doctor does prescribe 500mg, now and back greater based on the an infection. i myself am allergic to many antibiotics. it could take 2 days for it to artwork out of your equipment. If the indications worsen call the final practitioner. i might additionally ask your wellbeing practitioner approximately yet another variety of antibiotic if amoxicillin is inflicting this way of rash. Answered by Parker Fuhrman 3 months ago.

If you are concerned about warning emergency techs, then I would make it a blanket warning. I've had family members forever harmed and some killed by unwary techs administering just anything. On the other hand if you get sick often and are looking for a substitute, then I'd suggest reading the book called 'healing oils of the bible' which is available from most book sellers. Yes, I know some of you will not like the title, but it truly is an exceptional book for anyone serious about health. Answered by Nicki Alway 3 months ago.

To begin you are NOT going to be given a prescription for any antibiotic without being screened for allergies first. Your prescriber will then choose the one that is right for you so what difference does it make?? Meantime Omnicef is a celpalosporin drug. I honestly don't know where folks on here get the misinformation they post. It amazes me. Answered by Harris Laughter 3 months ago.

Jeffrey P. is right, BUT it's always best to be informed about what you are taking especially if you are allergic. There have been many cases where doctors have prescribed a drug that the person is allergic to. Myself included. You are wise to ask questions. Answered by Alexandria Kinzig 3 months ago.

I am allergic to amoxicillian- penicillan and all- and I take omnicef- just remember if you feel sick afterwards next time take after you eat. It helps. Answered by Meghann Ammirati 3 months ago.

NO, you are allergic to penicillin-type drugs. omnicef is another trade name for ampicillin, which is similiar to amoxicillin. Answered by Talisha Stoia 3 months ago.

no. too close to pennacillin,maybe floxins are the right antibiotics for you. as for allergies, some antibiotics cause stomach upset. if thats the case its not an allergy, rather a sensitivity. Answered by Daniel Wittlin 3 months ago.

i have been prescribed it for an ear/throat infection. for me the pill is hard for me to keep down and i dont see anyway that i could possibly take 2 of these in the same day. after taking the pill i feel almost toxic with it and everything tastes bitter like the pill for hours afterwards. also, i feel very sick for about 7 hours afterwards. on another note: i also take klonopin 3 times a day and that also makes me feel a little upset stomach on its own, if i take it during a ceftin dose am i asking for trouble? Answered by Cristobal Bullion 3 months ago.

It depends on what medication it is. Some medications cannot be split. EDIT: Sorry, I didn't see that you wrote that it was Ceftin. You can split it, but you really shouldn't. You need to take it all at the same time. If the tablet isn't working, you may want to inquire about switching to the liquid suspension form. You HAVE to take all of the medication prescribed. Even if you start feeling better, the bacterial infection may come back. Have you tried taking it with a full glass of water? That might also help with the Klonopin issues. You could also try eating a few saltines or something light before taking the medication. If all fails, give your physician a call. He may be able to prescribe you another antibiotic in the same class as the Ceftin that may be easier on your stomach. Answered by Adolph Stredny 3 months ago.

Effects of mixing alcohol with Ceftin(antibiotic)?
I am on a two week course of ceftin (general antibiotic) because I had surgery its in case of an infection. I am drinking beer tonight with some friends and am wondering what the effects are. I have always heard don't mix antibiotics with booze. Asked by Rosalba Konczak 3 months ago.

Not a big issue. Take it easy on the booze, not just because you are on an antibiotic, but because you just had surgery. As our pharmacist friend mentioned there are a few antibiotics where alcohol is absolutely contraindicated but Ceftin is not one of them. The combo is more likely to upset your stomach than either one alone. Answered by Erica Spinn 3 months ago.

I am drinking beer tonight with some friends and am wondering what the effects are. I have always heard don't mix antibiotics with booze. Answered by Dylan Hammerstrom 3 months ago.

The first poster has no idea what they are talking about. Some antibiotics can cause drowsiness in some people. That's why you are told to avoid alcohol. If the Ceftin hasn't caused you any drowsiness then you can have a beer or two. I would advise against any more than that. There are antibiotics, Flagyl for example, where alcohol is absolutely contraindicated. Answered by Tamiko Harrigton 3 months ago.

Alcohol usually cancels out the effects of antibiotics, which is why they say not to drink on them. Answered by Shannon Jette 3 months ago.


Can i take ceftin for strep throat?
i was diagnosed with strep throat a couple days ago & the doctor put me on 500 mg ceftin twice a day. my previous doctor put me on amox. when i got strep throat. is ceftin as effective as amox. when treating strep? Asked by Cristin Gverrero 3 months ago.

Yes, it is effective. In fact, Ceftin is out of the Cephalosporin class of antibiotics, which are very closely related to the Penicillin class of antibiotics, which is what Amoxicillin is in. Don't worry, your doctor knew what he/she was doing. Answered by Edmundo Gojcaj 3 months ago.


If I did ok with Ceftin, would i be allergic to Keflex?
I took ceftin for 10 days for strep throat, a couple days later i don't feel good again, strep was negative, could i still have it? cuz i thinkn i do, now i'm supposed to take keflex. Is it related to ceftin, how likely would i be allergic if i did ok with ceftin Asked by Jordon Mccarley 3 months ago.

Same class of antibiotic. If you did fine on the Ceftin, you should be ok on the Keflex. As to the sickness, you could have not cleared out the infection completely the first time, and it is coming back or it could be a different bacterial (or even viral) infection completely.
