Amipenix S review

Amipenix S 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 Amipenix S. This medication fights bacterial infections in the body, such as infections of the ear or bladder, pneumonia, E. coli, Salmonella, or gonorrhea.

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

Amipenix S is not for all patients. Consult with your doctor and provide a detailed medical history before taking this medication. 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 medications or other allergens may not be able to take Amipenix S or may require special care while taking this medication, depending on the condition and the severity of the condition.

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

A patient who experiences either an allergic reaction or a serious side effect while taking this medication should seek immediate medical attention. 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, fever, sore throat, 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 these 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 vaginal itching, vaginal discharge, headache, nausea, vomiting, 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.

Amipenix S should be taken exactly as prescribed. If a dose is accidentally missed, it can be taken when remembered. However, if it is almost time for the next dose then the missed dose should be skipped. Taking too much of the medication or taking doses of medicine too close together can result in an accidental overdose. Symptoms of an overdose include behavioral changes, confusion, skin rash, black outs, a decrease in urination, and convulsions. An overdose of Amipenix S requires urgent medical intervention.

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