Pyopen review

Pyopen 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. Pyopen is available in a tablet and administered orally to patients with infections due to bacteria, including patients with a bladder infection.

The proper dosage for Pyopen is based on a series of laboratory tests conducted by your doctor. For best results, this medication 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 dosage 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 Pyopen may experience some side effects including fever, unusual weakness, severe skin pruritus and pilling, unusual behavior, seizure, diarrhoea 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.

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

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

Make certain that your physician is aware of your complete medical history including intestine or stomach disorders, kidney problems and blood disorders. Avoid using the medicine longer than prescribed as this will lead to secondary infections such as vaginal yeast infection, oral infection and bladder infection.

Let your physician know if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or planning to become pregnant prior to taking this medication. The effectiveness of hormone-based birth control pills may be altered when used with Pyopen. Ask your physician about alternative birth control methods you can use while undergoing treatment with Pyopen.

Pyopen is given based on your medical condition. It is not advisable to use the medication again in case of another infection. This medication should not be shared with anyone else even if they have the same symptoms as you. Consultation with your physician is necessary before taking this medication.

Patients taking this medication should have a regular check up of their blood, kidney and liver functions to determine if the medication is working well and treating the infection. You must follow the schedules set by the physician's orders.
