Geopen review

Geopen is an antibiotic and part of the group of penicillin medicaments. It can fight various types of bacteria inside the body but is not effective on viral infections that are common to colds and the flu. Geopen is available in a tablet and administered orally to patients with infections due to bacteria, including patients with a bladder infection.

The proper dose for Geopen is based on a series of laboratory tests conducted by your doctor. For best results, this medicament should be taken orally at least an hour before a meal. Taking the medicine with a glass of water will make it easier to swallow.

Follow the prescribed dose and schedule given by the physician and do not alter the prescription. Never take two doses at once to make up for a missed dose. Simply forget the missed dose and take the next one.

In case of overdose, immediately seek medical attention.

Patients taking Geopen may experience some side effects which include fever, unusual weakness, severe skin pruritus and pilling, unusual behavior, seizure, diarrhea and difficulty in urinating. Less serious side effects include headache, swollen tongue, vomiting, stomach pain, and vaginal discharge or pruritus. If any of these side effects occur, consult your physician immediately.

Individuals allergic to Geopen and other antibiotics such as Ampicillin, Amoxicillin, Oxacillin, Penicillin and Dicloxacillin must avoid using this medicine.

Always inform your physician if you are taking other prescribed medicines, herbal medicines, vitamins and other substances that may interact or interfere with Geopen.

Also make certain that you have made your physician aware of your complete medical history including intestine or stomach disorders, kidney problems and blood disorders. Avoid using the medicine longer than prescribed by your physician as it will lead to secondary infections such as vaginal yeast infection, oral infection and bladder infection.

The effectiveness of hormone-based birth control pills may be interfered with when used with Geopen.
