Aminobenzylpenicillin review

Aminobenzylpenicillin is a generic form of penicillin that is sometimes prescribed as Omnipen, Totacillin, or Principen. Patients who have had an allergic reaction to penicillin-based antibiotics should not take Aminobenzylpenicillin. This medicament fights bacterial infections in the body, such as infections of the ear or bladder, pneumonia, E. coli, Salmonella, or gonorrhea.

Aminobenzylpenicillin has been known to render birth control pills ineffective. A secondary, non-hormonal form of birth control needs to be used while taking this medicament.

Aminobenzylpenicillin is not for all patients. Consult with your doctor and provide a detailed medical history before taking this medicament. Patients with a medical history of diarrhea from taking antibiotics, mononucleosis, kidney disease, asthma, blood disorder, blood clotting disorder, or any form of allergies to medicaments or other allergens may not be able to take Aminobenzylpenicillin or may require special care while taking this medicament, depending on the condition and the severity of the condition.

The FDA rated Aminobenzylpenicillin as a pregnancy risk category B so it is not expected to cause harm to or birth defects in an unborn fetus. Aminobenzylpenicillin passes through the mother's breast milk and can affect a nursing baby. Discuss this medicament with your doctor to determine whether the benefits outweigh the risks before taking Aminobenzylpenicillin. A woman who is pregnant or might become pregnant may have additional concerns and nursing mothers should avoid this medicament.

Allergic reactions include difficulty breathing, swelling of the mouth, lips, tongue, or throat, and hives. Serious side effects include agitation, confusion, unusual thoughts, unusual behaviors, pyrexia, sore throat, headache with a severe peeling and blistering rash, pyrexia 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. A patient who experiences either an allergic reaction or a serious side effect while taking this medicament should seek immediate medical attention. If you experience any of the above conditions, seek immediate medical attention.

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

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

Aminobenzylpenicillin cannot be taken with certain other medicaments because they have a negative interaction and can cause serious health risks. Always consult your doctor before taking any new medicaments, including over the counter medicaments, herbal remedies, and vitamin supplements. Medications with known negative interactions with Aminobenzylpenicillin include tetracycline antibiotics, probenecid, sulfa medicaments, methotrexate, and allopurinol.
