Neo-Duplamox review

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

Neo-Duplamox 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. Neo-Duplamox is not effective in treating common infections like the flu or colds.

Adults are often prescribed 500 milligrams of Neo-Duplamox 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 Neo-Duplamox.

Patients with hemodialysis are required to have at least 250 milligrams of Neo-Duplamox 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.

Neo-Duplamox can be taken on an empty stomach; however, for best results, it is advised that the patient take Neo-Duplamox prior to a meal. This will also lessen the chances of a gastrointestinal problem.

The pill should be taken whole; however, the chewable pill should be chewed first and never swallowed 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 it.

Neo-Duplamox must be taken at equal intervals as prescribed by your physician. Taking the medication regularly allows the patient to get the most benefits from Neo-Duplamox.

If the patient misses a dose, they should take it immediately. If the next dose is almost due, it is recommended that the patient skip the missed dose and then proceed to take their next scheduled dose. Do not take another medicine to make up for a missed dose.

Neo-Duplamox has some side effects, although the chances are pretty low. The less serious side effects include difficulty in breathing, hives, and swelling of the face, lips, and throat. More serious side effects include fever, stomach pain, lack of appetite, and yellowing of the eyes or skin. Patients should consult a physician immediately if any of these side effects become apparent or persist.

Neo-Duplamox, like most antibiotic medicines, can cause a patient to have diarrhea. This may indicate a new infection. Patients should immediately notify a physician especially if their bowel is watery or has blood in it. Do not use a medication to control the diarrhea unless prescribed by your physician.

Patients with kidney or liver illness should inform their physician about their condition prior to taking Neo-Duplamox. These conditions can prevent a patient from taking Neo-Duplamox or require an adjustment in the dose.
