Wymox review

Wymox is an antibiotic from the penicillin group. It is commonly used against bacterial infections that result in pneumonia, bladder infection, and gonorrhea among others. In some cases, Wymox is used in combination with a drug called clarithromycin for the treatment of stomach ulcers.

Amoxicillin is one of the most commonly used antibiotics. Then again, its use must not be abused because it would be dangerous to do so. Amoxicillins like Wymox cannot be used to treat flu. Virus causes flu and Wymox is not made for viral infections. Some people make this common mistake since some Amoxicillins can be taken over-the-counter.

A common concern for anyone taking a drug is allergy. Allergic reactions caused by Wymox can be dangerous so you must pay serious attention to it. Tell your doctor if you know of any allergies to amoxicillin, to any drugs, and to any thing at all. It would be helpful for your doctor’s prescription to be accurate. Other concerns include medical conditions such as asthma, kidney disorders, liver disease, and bleeding disorders. Under such circumstance, you may need to be given another drug or a dosage adjustment.

Before taking Wymox, tell your doctor if you are taking birth control pills. Wymox may make your pills less effective so you will need to use a different birth control method while under therapy to ensure that you do not get pregnant.

Wymox comes in different forms and of different concentrations. Your dosage and dosing schedule depends on your doctor’s directions, which is based on his diagnosis. Make sure that you follow the instructions well.

Take Wymox at specific intervals. Antibiotics need to maintain a specific concentration in your system to be effective. That is how important taking your medicine regularly is. If you happen to miss a dose, make sure that you take it as soon as you remember. If it happened to be close to your next dose, discard the missed dose and just continue with your regular dosing schedule. It is risky to double your dose.

If you experience stomach cramps, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and short breath, which are signs of overdose, rush to your doctor immediately.

Also, your condition may start to improve even before you finish the length of your therapy. Do not stop taking Wymox when this happens without talking to your doctor. With antibiotics, you naturally need to finish the treatment to reap the benefits of the drug.

As with any kind of drug, Wymox may pose symptoms of side effects that usually occur because your body is not yet adjusted to the drug. Once your body gets used to it, nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting must go away. If your side effects become serious or severe, consult your doctor, especially if they come with convulsions, jaundice, skin rash, and loss of appetite. The side effects of the drug must never overpower its benefits. If that is the case, you might need to use another drug for your condition. That is of course, depending on your doctor’s decision.
