Veclam review

Antibiotics are placed into different groups based to their strength in tackling bacteria and the illnesses that come with them. While Cefixim and Cephalexin are in the milder group of cephalosporin antibiotics, Veclam is in the stronger group of macrolide antibiotics. Veclam is used in severe cases of infections in the lungs (pneumonia), the tubes that lead to the lungs (bronchitis), and in the skin. It is even useful in controlling the spread of bacteria in HIV/AIDS patients.

Veclam was developed in Japanese labs in the 1970s. It was a byproduct of a version of erythromycin gone wrong. More than a decade later, Abbott Laboratories, created a partnership with the original manufacturer of Veclam, Taisho, to gain its international rights. In 2004, the medicament became a generic brand in Europe and in the United States the following year.

Veclam is taken by mouth as a pill or oral suspension. There are also gel and lotion versions of the medicament for topical use. Veclam is effective in preventing bacteria from growing and spreading. It has antimicrobial effects similar to erythromycin but is much more effective and safe. Veclam will not cause discomfort if taken on an empty stomach. It is easily absorbed by the body and distributed into the site of infection. When using the oral suppression pills, take the medicament with food.

A missed dose should be taken immediately upon realization. If the realization is too close to the next scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your normal schedule. Never take a double dose of Veclam and do not stop your intake of the medicine prematurely. Some symptoms may stop before the bacteria are killed. Since your goal is to kill the bacteria and stop it from spreading, take the medicament for the advised period. Following your healthcare professional's prescription is important.

Veclam has some side effects. Diarrhea, vomiting, and swelling on the face are common reactions towards this medicament. Some side effects can be severe and may include headache, motion sickness, rashes, dry mouth, anxiety attacks, hallucinations, yellowish skin, and kidney failure. If you experience any of these, rush to your healthcare professional immediately. Any side effect that is not normal or is causing you discomfort should be a cause for alarm and you should consult your healthcare professional immediately.

Special precautions should be taken by patients with histories of allergies, asthma, hives, liver disease, kidney ailment, heart problem, or electrolyte imbalance. Veclam is not recommended for patients with these conditions as the reaction may be severe or life threatening. When taking a prescription medicine, your healthcare professional's advice is always necessary. They will determine whether the medicament is appropriate for you and will regulate your intake to ensure that no damage is done.
