Bristamox review

Bristamox is used to treat bacterial infections in the body such as gonorrhea, skin infections, tooth infections, ear infections, tonsillitis, inflammatory illness of the lung, bronchitis, urinary tract infections, and others. Bristamox is an antibiotic often prescribed as Morisot, Amoxil, Dispermox, Trimox, and Wymox

Patients with a medical history that includes allergies to penicillin or cephalosporin, or a history of kidney illness, bowel illness, stomach illness, or intestinal illness may not be able to take Bristamox or may require careful monitoring while undergoing treatment, depending on the patient's condition. Bristamox is not for everyone so a thorough medical history should be provided to your healthcare professional prior to taking this medication.

The Food & Drug Administration has rated Bristamox as pregnancy risk category B. This medication has not been shown to cause harm to or birth defects in an unborn baby. Bristamox passes through the mother's breast milk and there is a small risk to the nursing baby. Less than 0.5% have reported yeast infections, diarrhea, or allergic reactions in nursing babies. Discuss with your healthcare professional whether the benefits outweigh the risks before taking this medication if you are pregnant or nursing, or likely to become pregnant.

Some side effects associated with Bristamox can be serious. Symptoms of an allergic reaction to this medication include facial swelling, including swelling of the lips, mouth, tongue, or throat, hives, and difficulty breathing. Other serious side effects include unusual bleeding, easy bruising, or seizures. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek immediate medical attention.

Less serious side effects often do not require emergency medical attention but should be reported to your healthcare professional. Less serious side effects include white patches on the tongue, mild nausea, emesis, diarrhea, abdominal pain, vaginal yeast infection, a black “hairy” tongue, or a sore mouth and tongue. Most of these side effects can usually be reduced to a tolerable level, simply by reducing the dosage of Bristamox.

Bristamox must be taken exactly as prescribed by your healthcare professional. If you miss a dosage, the dosage should be taken as soon as possible. However, if it is almost time for the next scheduled dosage, the missed dosage should be skipped to avoid the potential of an overdosage. Overdosage symptoms include pain, twitching, weakness, pain in the fingers or toes, muscle spasm, loss of feeling in the fingers or toes, confusion, agitation, seizures, coma, or death. If you experience or think you might be experiencing any of these symptoms, seek immediate medical attention.

As with many medications, there is a risk of negative drug interaction associated with Bristamox. A thorough medical history should be given to your healthcare professional prior to taking this medication. Patients also need to consult with their healthcare professional before taking any new medications, including over the counter medications and herbal remedies. Medications with known negative drug interactions with Bristamox include other antibiotics, methotrexate, probenecid, and allopurinol.

Patients need to take this medication as directed by the healthcare professional until it is gone, even if their symptoms subside. Patients that end their treatment of Bristamox early run the risk of a relapse and can be more severe and more resistant to antibiotics. The chronic or overly frequent use of antibiotics can lead to the body's tolerance of the medication, rendering it ineffective.
