Amcill review

Amcill is a generic form of penicillin, which is sometimes prescribed as Omnipen, Totacillin, or Principen. Amcill should be avoided by patients with an allergic reaction to penicillin-based antibiotics. It is prescribed to fight bacterial infections in the body, such as infections of the ear or bladder, pneumonia, E. coli, Salmonella, or gonorrhea.

Amcill has been known to render birth control pills less effective. A secondary, non-hormonal form of birth control should be used while the patient is taking this medication.

Amcill is not for all patients and without a thorough medical history, it should not be randomly prescribed. Patients with a medical history that includes diarrhea from taking antibiotics, mononucleosis, kidney disease, asthma, a blood disorder, a blood clotting disorder, or any form of allergies to medicaments or other allergens may not be able to take Amcill or might require special care while undergoing treatment with this medication, depending on the condition and the severity of the condition.

The American Food and Drug Administration rated Amcill as a pregnancy risk category B so it is not expected to cause harm or birth defects to an unborn fetus. Amcill does pass through the mother's breast milk and can affect a nursing baby. The doctor should discuss whether the benefits outweigh the risks before prescribing Amcill to a woman who is pregnant and should avoid prescribing this medication to women who are breastfeeding.

There is a possibility of serious side effects or allergic reactions to Amcill. A patient who experiences either an allergic reaction or a serious side effect while taking this medication should seek immediate medical attention. An allergic reaction to Amcill includes difficulty breathing, skin edema of the mouth, lips, tongue, or throat, and hives. Serious side effects include agitation, confusion, unusual thoughts, unusual behaviors, fever, acute pharyngitis, headache with a severe peeling and blistering rash, fever with chills, body aches, other flu symptoms, bloody diarrhea, watery diarrhea, unusual weakness, easy bruising or bleeding, urinating less than usual, not urinating at all, black outs, or convulsions. If you experience any of the above conditions, seek immediate medical attention.

Less serious side effects typically do not require emergency medical care but should still be reported to your doctor. Less serious side effects include symptoms such as vaginal itching, vaginal discharge, headache, nausea, emesis, stomach discomfort, swollen black or “hairy” tongue, or white patches on the tongue or on the inside of the mouth. If you experience any of these conditions, consult your doctor.

Amcill should be taken as directed to avoid the potential for an overdosage. If a dosage is accidentally missed, it can be taken when remembered. If it is almost time for the next dosage of Amcill then the missed dosage should be skipped. Taking too much of the medication or taking dosages of medicine too close together can result in an accidental overdosage. An overdosage of Amcill requires urgent medical intervention. Symptoms of an overdosage include behavioral changes, confusion, skin rash, black outs, a decrease in urination, and convulsions.

Amcill should not be taken with certain other medicaments because they will interact and cause serious health risks. Patients taking Amcill should always consult their doctor before taking any new medicaments, including over the counter medicaments, herbal remedies, and vitamin supplements. Medications with known interactions with Amcill include tetracycline antibiotics, probenecid, sulfa medicaments, methotrexate, and allopurinol.
