What Is This Treatment And How Is It Going To Help Improve Your Condition?
Amoxil is a form of penicillin antibiotic that’s designed to combat bacteria. The generic name for it is (amoxicillin). Amoxil is made use of in order to help treat different forms of infection brought on because of bacteria. Some examples would include tonsillitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, gonorrhea, and infections of the ear, nose, throat, skin, or urinary tract. In some instances it can also be used in combination with other antibiotics.
One example of this would be the antibiotic clarithromycin (Biaxin). In this case the two can be used together in order to offer treatment for stomach ulcers brought on because of Helicobacter pylori infection. There are other uses for this medication not mentioned here, but will be determined by a doctor.
Is Amoxil is an antibiotic you can decide to stop using if it’s working really well shortly into treatment or should you only do this once a doctor has decided if it’s okay?
Depending on the infection you have you will be given a specific amount of this treatment that should be enough to fully treat it. A doctor will do their best to not prescribe more or less than what’s needed. The reason for this is because they want to make sure your bacterial infection is properly treated and they don’t want to over prescribe you the medication. Because this would increase the possibility of certain problems. One of them would be overuse. In the case of you using the medication too much you run the risk of causing certain bacteria to develop a resistance to it. When this happens you’ll find that should you have a similar infection in the future it’s going to be much harder to treat it.
You would have to use other antibiotics, ones that might carry a higher risk of unwanted side effects. But even if you don’t overuse the medication there can still be problems. In the case of stopping usage when you’re initially prescribed a course of Amoxil (because your condition is improving way faster than a doctor thought it would) you would run the risk of having the bacterial it’s fighting only being partially killed off. This means they have a chance to come back and this time they would be resistant to a certain degree.
You don’t want this. Yes, when you use Amoxil it will work very well to improve your condition. You’ll want to monitor your results and report them to a doctor just to let them know how you’re coming along. However, you want to make sure you use the entire course of treatment the doctor gives you. This will ensure you’ve properly treated the bacterial infection and that it’s not only partially treated. Some people (those who have used this in the past) might already have a level of resistance. A doctor would need to know this in advance in order to come up with the proper plan to counteract this.
