Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Can ketoconazole (nizoral) cause halitosis (bad breath)?

    I was prescribed 200 mg Ketoconazole (known as nizoral) for 14 days, one pill a day.

    I missed one or two days and never took 2 pills within 24 hours.

    I noticed that while I was taking the drug and now 2-3 days after I have halitosis (known as bad breath). The bad breath stays even when I brush my teeth thoroughly. I wanted to know if anyone else experienced Halitosis while taking Ketoconazole.

    I also drank alcohol on one day (valentine's day) while on the drug. I experienced severe chills and stomach pains. I thought I had food poisoning. I took two tablespoons of Pepto Bismol and eventually (2 AM) fell asleep.

    Other than the night with extreme stomach pains and feeling very cold I have been 100% more tired than usual. Falling asleep as soon as I am at home on the couch and staying asleep through the night. It is very unusual for me.

    I have read that tiredness and stomach pains were already reported with this drug, but what about the bad breath?
  • Is the amoxicillin giving me bad dreams like some-0ne is trying to kill me
    I have been taking this drug for 3 days 500mg 3 times a day,and I am getting real bad dreams of being suffocated or killed its very frightening never had this before.
  • Can you take amoxicillin when you are taking peginterferon and ribavirin (1 answer)
    I wouldlike toknow if i take amoxicillin wether it will affect my treatment for HCV?
  • Is it possible that lyme disease can promote urine infections?
    I have had over 18 urine infections in the last year. I have been diagnosed with Lyme Disease a year and a half ago. My concern is how Lyme affects the bladder and also could MRSA be a part of the problem? Thank you.
  • Does/can inulin (chicory root extract) interact with lithium?
    I am taking all these antibiotics for 14 days to get rid of the H Pylori bacteria in my stomach. I want to replace the good bacteria lost and avoid diahhrea by taking a probiotic daily. However, I have noticed the use of inulin (chicory root extract) in the probiotic. I need to know if I can take the probiotic -- (includes chicory root) with my daily medication -- namely lithium or will there be a drug interaction between them or increase/decrease of my lithium blood level? Thank you!

    Sudden ache, pain and neuropathy in right hand and wrist within 8 hours of sterting Amoxicillin.
  • Lupus induced by amoxicillin (1 response)
    Was given Amoxicillin for Strep Throat and on day 10 I noticed a rash starting on my torso and began to feel ill, as if I had the flu. Went to emerg and got sent home with Benadryl. Woke up the next morning to the rash getting worse and an overall feeling of fatigue. Went to emerg again and this time had blood taken and the results showed an extreme rise in my white blood cells and by then, I had a fever. I was airlifted to another hospital where they did tests, but really had no idea what was wrong. I discharged myself with a script for corticosteroids and by then my joints began to stiffen, to a point of barely being able to walk and the pain was excruciating! I had to be cared for by my husband and struggled to lift my tea cup, or get out of bed. This lasted for about a month and then gradually began to subside. The doctors never did have answers for any of it. They chalked it up to an allergy to Amoxicillin. One mentioned "Steven Johnson Syndrome".
  • Amoxycillin and ear popping.
    I'm 30. I have otitis externa, but have never suffered with ear popping as a symptom. I had a flare up 2 wks before being prescribed this drug. I took a spay abx treatment which caused severe pain in my ears, so stopped taking that 5 days into the 7 day course. 4-5 days into my amoxicillin treatment for a uti, and my ears are popping. I have no known other medical problems, and am on no other meds.
