Mary Kay has several lines so if the product you are using now doesn't feel like you are getting enough moisture talk to your consultant about other options try the intense moisturizer or even the enriched. I have very dry skin and have been using Mary Kay for 10 years after using it for a few month it wasn't as dry more normal now I only get dry in extreme wind or cold hardly ever need to use the intense moisturizer now.

Sounds like you might e have a allergic reaction to the medication. Even if you have taken Penicillins before with out prolems, one can always happen. I would sugest you see your doc for a differant medication. As for your face, to ease the pain you can take benydril orally or you can use a cream like camamil to cool the skin, or any kind of light lotion with oatmeal extracts. If this is caused from your medication you and you know for a fact you need to stop taken the drug and see your doctor right away. If not a allergic reaction can get alot worst.

I took diet pills while I was on the pill and over the course of the 4 months that I took it...I contantly felt dizzy and had a few cases of the dry heaves thinking I had some type of flu when in fact it was just the two medications counteracting.

That really depends. It is something you should ask your doctor. Especially if you're going on something you haven't been on before. I was on Topamax for a while, and it didn't affect my birth control until I reached a certain dosage. Be careful though. Some doctors forget to tell you that it might affect such things as your pill. I had to ask my doctor once about that because he didn't bring it up. Come to find out I had to be careful because it did make my birth control not as effective. Never think that the doctor will always tell you without you prompting them. Good luck! Answered by Signe Garibay 6 months ago.
I think you mean counteract (or do you mean contradict), if you are taking an antibiotic than you need to use alternate birth control while on that antibiotic ( for example condoms and spermicide), due to the fact that the antibiotic may decrease the effectiveness of your bc pill.

Can a woman take birth control pills with diet pills and still have the pill be effective?
I am currently on loestrin24e and was wondering is there any research proving that the pill will not be effective if the person takes the pill also?
Asked by Sherice Hotaling 6 months ago.
The birth control pill consists of hormones which essentially make your body think it is pregnant. Your ovaries will then not release an egg each month, meaning that sperm would have nothing to fertilize. Advantages- very effective when taken properly, can lessen PMS symptoms, lighten "period" bleedings Disadvantages- must remember to take a pill every day, at around the same time. some people experience other side effects. After you stop taking the pill, the extra hormones go away and you can become pregnant again. Your period does not go away completely, but it is more correctly called a "withdrawal bleed," since it is not a true period and is just a break in the hormone dose to allow your body to continue to regulate itself. The pill AND a condom is one of the most effective methods of preventing pregnancy! Perfect use of both methods is over 99% effective. Answered by Preston Khiev 6 months ago.

Ampicillin is an antibiotic in the penicillin group of drugs. It fights bacteria in your body. Ampicillin is used to treat many different types of infections caused by bacteria, such as ear infections, bladder infections, pneumonia, gonorrhea, and E. coli or salmonella infection. Ampicillin may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide. What is the most important information I should know about ampicillin? Do not use this medication if you are allergic to ampicillin or to any other penicillin antibiotic, such as amoxicillin (Amoxil), carbenicillin (Geocillin), dicloxacillin (Dycill, Dynapen), oxacillin (Bactocill), penicillin (Beepen-VK, Ledercillin VK, Pen-V, Pen-Vee K, Pfizerpen, V-Cillin K, Veetids), and others. Before using ampicillin, tell your doctor if you are allergic to cephalosporins such as Ceclor, Ceftin, Duricef, Keflex, and others, or if you have asthma, kidney disease, a bleeding or blood clotting disorder, mononucleosis (also called "mono"), or a history of any type of allergy. Ampicillin can make birth control pills less effective, which may result in pregnancy. Before taking ampicillin, tell your doctor if you use birth control pills. Take this medication for the entire length of time prescribed by your doctor. Your symptoms may get better before the infection is completely treated. Ampicillin will not treat a viral infection such as the common cold or flu. Do not give this medication to another person, even if they have the same symptoms you do. Antibiotic medicines can cause diarrhea, which may be a sign of a new infection. If you have diarrhea that is watery or has blood in it, call your doctor. Do not use any medicine to stop the diarrhea unless your doctor has told you to. What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before taking ampicillin? Do not use this medication if you are allergic to ampicillin or to any other penicillin antibiotic, such as: amoxicillin (Amoxil, Amoxicot, Biomox, Dispermox, Trimox); carbenicillin (Geocillin); dicloxacillin (Dycill, Dynapen); oxacillin (Bactocill); or penicillin (Beepen-VK, Ledercillin VK, Pen-V, Pen-Vee K, Pfizerpen, V-Cillin K, Veetids, and others). Before using ampicillin, tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs (especially cephalosporins such as Ceclor, Ceftin, Duricef, Keflex, and others), or if you have: asthma; kidney disease; a bleeding or blood clotting disorder; mononucleosis (also called "mono"); a history of diarrhea caused by taking antibiotics; or a history of any type of allergy.

I have "strep throat", how long until it goes away (i am using antibiotics.) also I feel like im floating, why?
I'm feeling really floaty and empty inside, is that normal? Also how long will it last (using antibiotics)
Asked by Barrett Macewen 6 months ago.
Because of potential significant complications, if strep throat is detected, it must be treated adequately with antibiotics. It is important to take the full course of antibiotics as prescribed and not to stop the medication when symptoms resolve. Prematurely discontinuing antibiotics can result in the infection being inadequately treated, with potentially adverse consequences or relapse of the infection and develop heart valve diseases. Streptococcus is highly responsive to penicillin and the cephalosporin antibiotics. Penicillin has shown good effectiveness, and it is reliable and cheap. Oral penicillin V (Pen-Vee-K, Veetids) is the preferred oral form of penicillin for strep throat. The usual dose is 250 milligrams three times a day or 500 milligrams twice a day. A full 10 day course must be completed although patients usually feel better only after two to three days. Injectable penicillin G (Bicillin) is also very effective and may be used in individuals who may not reliably take 10 days of antibiotics orally. The drug may last in the body for up to 21 days and can therefore adequately treat the infection. Other penicillin derivatives such as amoxicillin (Amoxil), amoxicillin-clavulanate (Augmentin), cloxacillin (Cloxapen, Tegopen), and dicloxacillin (Dynapen) are all adequate treatments for strep. They may be even slightly more effective than penicillin because of better absorption and greater potency. Cephalosporin antibiotics are also a very effective in treating group A streptococcus. In some studies, they were found to be better than penicillin, and there is some suggestion that they may be the first choice antibiotic for this infection. For now, they remain a very good choice in patients with mild penicillin allergies. Other options are macrolides, such as erythromycin (E-Mycin, Eryc, Ery-Tab, PCE, Pediazole, Ilosone), azithromycin (Zithromax), and clarithromycin (Biaxin). These antibiotics have shown similar to superior effectiveness compared to penicillin for the treatment of group A streptococcus. Erythromycin is thought to be the optimum choice for people with severe penicillin allergy. The current recommendations still list penicillin as the first choice for the treatment of group A streptococcus. Erythromycin is recommended as the first choice in penicillin-allergic individuals. First generation cephalosporins such as cephalexin and cefadroxil, are alternatives to erythromycin. Answered by Audry Kammes 6 months ago.

Asked by Marisela Viteo 6 months ago.
Antibiotics that have been shown to interact with contraceptives include Rifampin (brand name Rifadin), Penicillin (Veetids), Amoxicillin (Amoxil or Augmentin), Ampicillin (Omnipen), Cotrimoxazole (Septra or Bactrim), Tetracycline (Sumycin), Minocycline (Minocin and Doxycycline), Metronidazole (Flagyl), and Nitrofurantoin (Macrobid or Macrodantin). If you are currently taking any of these, you need to discuss this with your doctor. This would also pertain to Plan B. Answered by Pauline German 6 months ago.
If plan B is using a condom with spermicide, no it's not going to hurt anything. It's a VERY good idea to use a back up method if you are on antibiotics. Use a back up method for four weeks or through a complete month's worth package of pills. Condoms are a good idea anyway to prevent STD's. They are perfectly safe to use with the pill.

No all antibiotics cancel out the pill but most of them can. During this time it is best to either abstain from sex or use another birth control method such as a condom.

How long can walking pneumonia last?
Asked by Peg Aiton 6 months ago.
Doctors use antibiotics to treat pneumonia caused by bacteria, the most common cause of the condition. You usually will continue to take antibiotics for 5 to 14 days, although you may take them longer if you have an impaired immune system. Your doctor will choose your antibiotic based on a number of things, including your age, your symptoms and how severe they are, and whether you need to go to the hospital. Although experts differ on their antibiotic recommendations, the first antibiotic used usually is one that works against a wide range of bacteria (broad-spectrum antibiotic). All antibiotics used have a high cure rate for pneumonia. 6 If you do not have to go to the hospital, your doctor may use any of the following antibiotics: * Macrolides, such as Ery-Tab, Biaxin, Biaxin XL, and Zithromax. * Tetracyclines, such as doxycycline (Vibramycin, Doryx). * Fluoroquinolones, such as Levaquin, Avelox, and Tequin. If you have to go to the hospital, your doctor may use any of the above antibiotics. Other antibiotics that your doctor may use in this situation include: * Cephalosporins, such as Ceclor, Duricef, Ceftin, and Lorabid. * Penicillins, such as Amoxil, Biomox, Omnipen, Augmentin, Veetids, and Timentin. * Vancomycin (Vancocin). Another type of antibiotic, ketolides (telithromycin), was approved for pneumonia in 2004 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It can be used in mild-to-moderate pneumonia. Antibiotics usually work well with younger, otherwise healthy people with strong immune systems. You usually see some improvement in symptoms within 2 to 3 days. Unless you get worse during this time, your doctor usually will not change your treatment for at least 3 days. If there is no improvement or if your symptoms get worse, you may need culture and sensitivity testing. These tests help identify the organism that is causing your symptoms and determine whether the bacteria may be resistant to the antibiotic. You usually will not have to go to the hospital unless you: * Are older than 65. * Have other health problems, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, heart failure, asthma, diabetes, long-term (chronic) kidney failure, or chronic liver disease. * Cannot care for yourself or would not be able to tell anyone if your symptoms got worse. * Have severe illness with less oxygen getting to the tissues (hypoxia). * Have chest pain caused by inflammation of the lining of the lung (pleurisy) and therefore are not able to cough up mucus effectively and clear the lungs. * Are being treated outside a hospital and are not getting better (such as your shortness of breath not improving). * Are not able to eat or keep food down so that you need to take fluids through a vein (intravenous). Viral pneumonia Pneumonia also can be caused by viruses, such as those that cause influenza (flu) and chickenpox (varicella). * At this time, there is no proven medication to treat pneumonia caused by the influenza virus. Home treatment, such as rest and taking care of your cough, is the only treatment. * Varicella pneumonia, which is rare, can be treated with the antiviral medication acyclovir. What To Think About If you do not need to go to the hospital for pneumonia, it is not usually necessary to identify the organism causing the pneumonia before starting treatment. If you do go to the hospital, you will usually have some additional testing to identify the bacteria. Getting started early on antibiotics results in better recovery, especially in those age 65 and older who have severe symptoms. 6 In most cases pneumonia is a short-term, treatable illness. However, frequent bouts of pneumonia can be a serious complication of a long-term (chronic) illness, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). If you have a severe long-term illness, it may be difficult to treat your pneumonia, or you may choose not to treat it. You and your doctor should discuss this. This discussion may include the possibility of your creating an advance directive. For more information, see the topic Writing an Advance Directive or Care at the End of Life.

There are two ways that antibiotics potentially can reduce the action of birth control pills. Birth control pills contain estrogens. Some antibiotics, e.g., rifampin, griseofulvin, cause the enzymes in the liver to increase the break-down of estrogens and thereby can decrease the levels of estrogens in the body and the effectiveness of the pills. This can result in unwanted pregnancy. Therefore, individuals taking birth control pills should use a second method of birth control when taking these antibiotics or other drugs that can increase the break-down of estrogens. The other way that antibiotics could interfere with the effectiveness of birth control pills is by reducing the re-circulation of estrogens within the body. Estrogens, e.g., ethinyl estradiol, in birth control pills are broken-down by conversion in the liver to other chemicals which are then secreted into the intestines in the bile that is produced by the liver. Bacteria in the intestine are able to convert these chemicals back into the active estrogen which is then reabsorbed into the body.. This re-circulation is called entero-hepatic cycling. Theoretically, antibiotics can kill the bacteria that convert the inactive chemicals to the active estrogen, and, therefore, may interfere with the effectiveness of birth control pills. Unwanted pregnancies could occur. Although it has not been proven that unwanted pregnancies can occur by this means, drug manufacturers caution that antibiotics could decrease the effectiveness of birth control pills. Since it is better to be safe than sorry, individuals taking birth control pills are advised to use a second reliable method of birth control when taking antibiotics. Answered by Raleigh Sumrow 6 months ago.
Well the reason why birth control pills are effective is because they stop ovulation and also thicken cervical mucus, so no offense to the first answer, but that is inaccurate. If you have been on birth control pills regularly you would not be ovulating. Certain antibiotics do lower the effectiveness of birth control pills but they don't completely stop them from working. I know for sure amoxicillin and penicllin are one of those antibiotics. It does increase your chances of your contraceptives failing, but not significantly. Especailly if youve been taking them everyday like you should, it probably won't. Even if you had stopped taking your birth control, it takes most women at least a couple of months off the birth control pills to get pregnant bc your body has to adjust to going back to ovulating a little while after you stop. If I were you I would just take a pregnancy test and tell your obgyn doctor your concerns. You probably aren't but just to it to relieve your anxiety. Answered by Georgine Islam 6 months ago.

All antibiotics can prevent birth control from working. You most definately could have gotten pregnant. Take a test when your period is due or first response is accurate 69% at 5 dys before your period is due. Sperm can live up to 5 days inside the womb, so if you started antibiotics 2 days after sex, then you could have ovulated when you still had live sperm inside you.
