Ciblor review

Ciblor belongs to a group of antibiotics called penicillin. When combined with Amoxicillin, Ciblor fights bacteria that cause various infections in the body.

Ciblor is available under the brand name Augmentin which comes in pill and liquid forms. It is for patients who are undergoing treatment for various infections such as sinusitis, urinary tract infections, pneumonia, bronchitis, ear infections, and skin infections. It can be taken by adults and children. Ciblor is not effective in treating common infections like the flu or colds.

Adults are often prescribed 500 milligrams of Ciblor every 12 hours, or 250 milligrams every 8 hours. For more severe cases of infections, particularly in the respiratory tract, the dose can be increased to 875 milligrams every 12 hours, or 500 milligrams every 8 hours.

Patients who have weakened renal function are not required to have a reduction in dose unless their injury is serious. Usually, seriously injured patients are not able to take 875 milligrams of Ciblor.

Patients with hemodialysis are required to have at least 250 milligrams of Ciblor depending on the seriousness of the infection. Patients are required to take additional doses during and after dialysis. Children who weigh more than 80 lbs should be given doses similar to adults.

Ciblor can be taken even if the patient has an empty stomach. However, for best results it is advised that the patient take Ciblor prior to a meal. This will also lessen the chances of a gastrointestinal problem.

The pill form of Augmentin should be taken whole. The chewable pill should be chewed first and never swallowed as a whole. The extended-release pill should be swallowed whole or broken into halves, but never chewed. The liquid form should be shaken first before taking.

Ciblor must be taken at equal intervals as prescribed by your doctor or pharmacist. Taking the medication regularly allows a patient to get the most effectiveness of Ciblor.

In case a patient misses a dose, they should take it immediately. If the next dose is almost due, it is recommended that they pass over the missed dose and then proceed to take the dose at the next scheduled dose. It is not recommended that patients take another medicine to make up for a missed dose.

Like most medicines, Ciblor can result to side effects, although the chances are pretty low. Some of the less serious side effects include difficulty in breathing, hives, and skin edema of the face, lips, and throat. More serious side effects may include fever, stomach pain, lack of appetite, and yellowing of the eyes or skin.

Patients should consult a doctor immediately in case any of these side effects become apparent or persist.

Ciblor, like most antibiotic medicines, can cause a patient to have diarrhea, which could indicate a new infection. Patients should immediately notify a doctor especially if their bowel is watery or has blood in it. Never use a medication to control the diarrhea unless prescribed by your doctor.

Patients who have kidney or liver disease should inform their physician about their condition prior to taking Ciblor. These conditions can prevent a patient from taking Ciblor or can require an adjustment in the dose.
