"Randomized trial of Amoxicillin for pneumonia in Pakistan by FISO. Jihan from Aga Khan University Karachi Pakistan. The World Health Organization recommends ORAL AMOXICILLIN FOR PATIENTS WHO have pneumonia with to Kip Neha yet. Trial data indicate that not using amoxicillin to treat. This condition may be non inferior to using Amoxicillin in this randomized non inferiority trial at primary healthcare centers in low income communities in Karachi Pakistan a total of four thousand two children who were to fifty nine months of age, and who met who criteria for non severe pneumonia with to Kip Neha were randomly assigned to a three day course of a suspension of Amoxicillin of fifty milligrams per milliliter or matched volume of placebo, according to who weight bands. In the per protocol analysis, the incidents of treatment failure was four point nine percent among placebo recipients and two point six percent among amoxicillin recipients. Results were similar in the intention to treat analysis, the presence of fever, and we's predicted treatment failure. The number needed to treat to prevent one treatment failure was forty four one patient in each group died. Relapse occurred in two point, two percent of children in the Placebo Group and in three point, one percent of children in the Amoxicillin Group. Among children younger than five years of age with non severe pneumonia, the frequency of treatment failure was higher in the Placebo Group then in the Amoxicillin Group A difference that did not meet the non inferiority margin for Placebo. And Chang from the Queensland University of Technology Brisbane Australia writes an editorial that the findings in these two fairly short term trials are emblematic of the persistently high prevalence of malnutrition and the sub, optimal prevalence of immunization, approximately fifty to sixty percent in these countries research on preventing pneumonia and studies of longer term outcomes are still required. Data from studies that examine the duration of chronic symptoms, such as wet cough, lasting greater than four weeks, respiratory associated hospitalizations or persistent avatar maladies on chest radiography after pneumonia treatment are lacking whether longer courses of antibiotics may benefit. Some children with pneumonia is unknown, but such benefit is plausible because the longer course would increase the likelihood of pathogen clearance from the Airways and reduce the risk of persistent inflammation and airway injury. Indeed the results of Of Trials, involving children younger than two years of age with Otitis. Media have shown poor clinical outcomes with shorter courses of antibiotics. Prospective data have shown that pneumonia may reduce future lung, function and shape lung function trajectories, thus pneumonia, and its consequences have public health implications. These important trials conducted by Jihan and Ginsburg have contributed to our current knowledge yet. Many gaps remain in our understanding of the appropriate management of pneumonia and deserve greater attention. Triple Inhale therapy at to glucocorticoid doses in moderate to severe COPD by Klaus. Raba from Looming Clinic Grocery Store F- Germany. Triple fix dose regimens of an inhaled glucocorticoid along acting musk rennick antagonised laba and the long acting Beta two agonists Laba for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. COPD have been studied at single dose levels of inhaled Glucocorticoid, but studies at two dose levels are lacking in this phase. Three trial, eight, thousand, five hundred nine patients with COPD, were randomly assigned to triple inhaled therapy with either. Either a one, hundred sixty microgram or three hundred twenty microgram dose.

"Can you tell us about some of the things going through your mind in a case like this? What additional information would you want to collect necess- during this encounter, and are there any additional? Additional treatment options. You'd be considering wealthier patients like this all the time, and like you mentioned earlier. How Penicillin allergies are over reported is made roughly ten percent of patients report penicillin allergy, however less than one percent are truly allergic. This definitely be problematic as many infections like strep throat can be effectively treated with penicillin like pencil on vk or Amoxicillin. When patients penicillin allergies, they can result in suboptimal treatment with broad spectrum antibiotics, especially with strep throat where you might see patients receive Cephalosporin or Either my sin, which can increase the risk of antimicrobial resistance, possible seat, if infections as well as adverse events. When thinking about this patient, my I thought would be to try and get a more thorough history on the patients report dependent cell allergy. When meeting with patients in our clinic to review allergies in detail and make sure each algae is appropriately documented with a reason for it. When the reason for the allergies unknown or Arash I like to investigate further if the patient and provide some more detail, especially finding out there's any Aegean associated reaction along with a rash such as Yukari A-. Also we WANNA know you remember the reaction herself or in. Can She describe it? Sometimes, we'll have patience Elyssa. A family member told them in the past. They had a reaction, so it might not be clear also if she was taking any other medications at the time. That could be associated with that reaction. She experienced. And also what penicillin did she react to? If you're accident, one type of penicillin, we would want to avoid other types also WanNa know what penicillin did she react to? Of course if she reacted to one type of penicillin, avoid others. However, this may help determine which Cephalosporin to avoid as cross reactivity can increase with Beta lack times with similar side chains investigating the reason for allergy, the first to help d label a penicillin allergy..

"She still been sick. I took her to the vet she we were there for like three and a half hours they did. All of these tests on her said that her white blood cell count was really high which indicates that there's an infection infection. They gave her ten days worth of antibiotics. <hes> then will comes home. I'm like can you please take her and Jackson home. The only thing I need you to do is to put Jackson in the shower and give the dog her medicine okay well you. I don't know if you've ever done this but maybe when you were like with Havi. Would you ever like tell him to do something and you might leave out a few details but you you think those few details that you leave out would have been commonsense things correct. Yes absolutely ABSA fucking Louis. Okay so we'll comes home. Literally does exactly as I say like put Jackson in the shower in shower him and give del her medicine. Send Okay any person knows that if you're giving a dog a human whatever medicine that they should you shouldn't be taking any type of medicine really on an empty stomach dog has not had any food all day because she's been throwing up and he brings the dog home gives her Amoxicillin and then tries to feed her immediately afterwards. So of course she starts throwing up everywhere and I'm like nuts like could you not figured it out like used a portion of your brain so I come home with the police Alad which I know you don't like to pull a but I love it. I eat at like five times a week and then my appetites completely lost so needless to say the dog still on the mend. She doesn't have a fever anymore. <hes> and she's been sleeping a lot but I really don't know what's wrong with her they. said the after that she does this for ten days and if she's still not better to bring her back but I find that kind of weird because I'm like ten days is kind of a long time. She's very like sleepy. I mean that's so good sign though because when you sleep your body's trying to fight the infection but I mean do you think like something else could be wrong. I mean they did all of these tests and they came back with like nothing other than she has an elevated white blood cell count but like everything else checked out. I don't know much about animals. I actually have a dog here Chris's dog that he took to the vet in. I have now just because it's Chris you know works or whatever but <hes> it he. I don't know like they put him on medicine for ten days also and he's throws up and I just like I don't know about the fever thing because kristen say anything but <HES> I don't. I don't know I don't know anything about dogs really did they give him amoxicillin deal or whatever I don't know I'll have to check but he has to medicines and yet to cut him in half and do twice daily for like the ten days as or whatever Oh no okay guys. I know a lot of you are in a perfume Rut. You bought a giant bottle of perfume that you never use and you WANNA try some new fragrances without the commitment..
"amoxicillin" Discussed on The Pulse
"And she saw this allergy note, pop up on patients charts often then her son was diagnosed with a penicillin allergy. He had just like an ear, infection and was on amoxicillin so, like, well, analogy four I had a rash because I was taken pin as Silliman just a red bumpy rash all over his body. And as in most cases that's enough for the person to be told. Okay, you're allergic to penicillin, and that went right on his chart, too. But it turns out that neither of us is allergic defendant, Zilin. How did you find that out? So, I think as a so often, the case in parenthood, I was more invested in my son's long-term well-being than I was in my own. And I thought you know, I really don't want him to have this label on his chart. I don't want this world of potentially ex. Solent medications to not be available to him for the rest of his life. And so I took him to see an allergist shall I'll want to dump a nice woman and see tone me, like was going to happen. And he went through a pretty simple skin testing procedure. They gave him one pill of amoxicillin afterwards when he passed the skin test, and he didn't have a reaction. So that label was totally taken off of his chart. He is not allergic to penicillin Neta, went through the same skin test and got the same result. And as she dug into more research she found out this is really common. We've actually learned in medicine that ninety five percent of people who have a reported, penicillin allergy or not, allergic to penicillin. She said that reaction she had as a teenager that itchy rash could have been from anything also people sometimes outgrow, these allergies. So what should physicians? And I'm thinking it's probably most likely primary care physicians who should know about this. What should physicians do differently? I think one of the most important things is that when we see that penicillin allergy on a patient's chart to ask more questions about it. We often treat that allergy tab as, as if it's written in stone. Whereas other parts of the chart were constantly updating and things are coming off and being added on, we should view that allergy tab with that same fluidity. So ask more questions. What actually happened? How old were you in some cases? The reaction really is severe. They might have had their skin Slough off of their body, that's serious. And that warrants more of like a closer investigation, but if it was that they had hives when they were thirteen like me, then we could actually really think about sending them for testing and maybe taking that off of their chart and not having or being able in. Quotes to take those medications can have some pretty serious drawbacks. Right. Absolutely. There have actually been a number of studies that have shown that people with a reported penicillin allergy have a higher risk of really serious complications, like, for example, Mersa, that resistant, staff, infection, also C, diff or clustered him difficile colitis, which can make a person, incredibly sick people with penicillin allergy have a higher risk of those kinds of infections. And so it's not a harmless thing to just kind of linger in your history for years and years. And what's the reason for those bigger infections? Is that because they were treated with stronger antibiotics along the way? And that's exactly right. Yes. Not afraid is an internal medicine physician and host of the primary care reviews and perspectives podcast. That's our show for this week.

"amoxicillin" Discussed on Science Rules! with Bill Nye
"Or are you feeling concerned healthy but I'm concerned because I am allergic to amoxicillin amoxicillin, penicillin and tetracycline. That's, that's another serious issue is people who have who have allergic reactions to some of these antibiotics. What, what is your specific question that you have here? Our work with copies all day. So I was worried what's the worst pathogen I could be exposing myself to on the copiers your copy machines? Is that what you mean me, like pressing the same button, ZIM, working the same machinery that another people do, and they might be infected and people take pictures centers? So we get copiers from hospitals and other places. And so we're opening them up to the internals, and the, the heated products that are inside the copiers as well. Okay. Got it. Well, Chris, it's great question, and I can understand why it'd be concerned because I personally try to avoid hospitals at all costs. That's not where I wanna go when I'm sick guys working for I know. And, and that's why it's a great question you have to protect yourself, but the good news is that most of the bacteria that you might be worried about aren't going to survive that process of transport from the hospital to your lab in, in any sort of environmental condition. But having said that are you a pretty healthy guy? Yes, I'm very holding then than I would chill out. And just enjoy your job because you have a micro bio of your own. That's powerful. And that's in part, what's keeping you healthy. It's also making you smarter and it's making you less depressed but those are other issues for another show. Bill. Cable have. Yes. Oh, yes. Another show microbiome in your overall health and happiness, shook depression. And I mean the important and quick point is that this environment of bacteria in your body is actually doing a lot of beneficial things you. They're very good reasons why you don't want to just take a broad spectrum antibiotic and mow them all down, because that's, that's part of the healthy you that you're getting rid of that's right. And the viruses as well. We would we've been focusing on bacteria, but the viruses won't last that long on that equipment either. So keep forging ahead and making those hospital copiers Cirque, Chris, do you feel like you have to wipe everything down with alcohol or something like that? Only when we get one with blood on it. Oh my goodness. Well, okay. Now, I'm going to take a step back. I didn't know that. But you step forward. Pay were covered with blood. Okay. I would talk to your. Let's see is the supervisor let's just say he's in charge, which as I would tell the hospitals to clean them before they send them to you. I mean, come on. That's just basic basic safety will time drivers. Sometimes drivers will cut themselves in transport. And I see. Okay. Okay. Well, Chris, you really, you really can rely on your micro by to keep you pretty safe and avoid into botox when you don't have to take them on, on another note, where do you get your micro-biology to start with? That's a great question. Chris. Good is microbiome. Well, if he was well, I don't know if we can go this way, but if he was born badgley, versus C-section. He got different Mike. You were c section. He's fine. Well, of course he's fine. But he's a healthy guy, but what we're now learning is that when you're born with a C section you don't gain the benefit of your mother's microbiome, that's passed onto you through. The birth canal. And so quite get over your skin infant, it just gets all over you. And you ingested. Jewison breastfeeding. I mean you get you get my vote if your mom is all smooch, Ian, cuddly, and so on, don't you get full of micro bio me, things, you, you do for sure. But it's those first few moments of life, that have a huge impact later will who gets in there. First and sets up house. So in, in a c section, what we're learning? Now is that quite often, you will have bacteria that are found in the hospital, rather than the bacteria found in your mum. Yeah. But does that affect your health long-term? It could now you've Chris's made it this far very healthy and graduates, light..

"Better in two days. Okay. So we're on the same page amoxicillin will cure a viral infection. Are you sure about that?

I still love, you know, you're pushy on this one. And you really annoying me. But I still love you. Bye. Drop the amoxicillin off at the front desk. Maybe some amoxicillin contract infections caused by bacteria, but not those caused by viruses. It can be used with other medications to treat stomach ulcers. But my stomach is fine. Thank you very much lady. I do appreciate you. And you're only trying to help that is that is the worst thing about being on the radio when you just mentioned that you're sick.

A Woman Had a Dangerous Allergic Reaction After Sex. Here's Why
"Being reported by science alert. A woman has an NFL lactic reaction to seamen. Now. This is pretty scary. And this could happen to a lot of people. Probably not me. Married. Twenty years not route not going to happen me. But apparently there was a thirty year old woman in Spain. And she showed up to the emergency room at the general university hospital valley Kante, she was vomiting profusely shortness of breath entire body covered in high. So an Anna flack reaction not technically shock, but in NFL access for your whole body reacts to an allergy. So it a moderate and of lactic reaction now. This is this is a case report published they believe what happened. Is he performed oral sex on somebody who had just had an antibiotic that she ended up being allergic to. They say the patient's reaction started after having unprotected sex to male partner, which involved oral ejaculation. According to the case reports. Now, there is seminal plasma hypersensitivity. It's a rare allergic reaction that could affect females. And there could be something within the semen that they could react to now. You know, there's plasma that's the liquid that carry sperm, and it has a lot of proteins and some people may be allergic to the specific protein. But they think maybe it wasn't the protein, but it was because the gentleman had been taking ibuprofen and augmented in the five days leading up to the incident. That's a type of prescription antibiotic medication. He had a middle ear infection. And apparently his last dose was four hours before the couple had sex say you're not supposed to be doing kissing, and you're not supposed to be doing lovey-dovey side stuff. If you're saying if you're on antibiotics, I remember when I'd be saying botox, you know, I had to like stay in my room. I couldn't hug or kiss anybody in the house people have sex when they're sick when they have the flu. I I was I did one of my shows in Arizona, and it was on a Christmas and somebody had the flu and he asked and his girlfriend. So yes, the people to wear a mask while having sex. So he want to give her the flu. Mike, how do you want to have sex when you have the flu? The arch is supposed to be bedridden. I mean, I have a good sex drive. But if I have the flu I'm in bed and stay away from me. But I guess people are trying to figure out how to still have sex the flu worry masks. So anyway, this gentleman the thirty two year old man was on augmented and Augmentin is amoxicillin moccasins on the penicillin family. And the doctors think that maybe that's what happened. Where she might have had a penicillin allergy. Now, they say the woman was actually diagnosed with her allergy as a child, but the doctors think they've never seen an instance of an allergy like this. This is the first reported case of a possible amoxicillin and just NFL axis and a woman after oral sexual contact with a man who was taking the drug. The doctor's note that few studies have investigated whether drugs might be concentrated in semen. But they note that a fear radically plausible in this case due to the chemical composition of seminal plasma antioxidant and amoxicillin readily dissolves in fats, and there are fats and lipids within the semen to I guess, you know, allow a more hospitable environment for the sperm. So the patient was treated that flexes medication made a full recovery. Her doctors decide to write up the case report when they realized that they might have unique event on their hands internet searches revealed that other people drug allergies have written about something like this happening. But there was nothing in the medical literature. So the recommendation is to use condoms if you're taking any medications to which your partner could be allergic. We think that as clinicians it is important to be aware of this phenomenon to inform and prevent potentially serious reactions in sensitized patients, and this was published in the case report now. Okay. Wow. Wow. Wow. Makes sense though, make sense. I mean, you know, we take a lot of things for granted. And you know, our bodies are designed to do certain things, and they're not designed for other certain things. And so, you know, to be honest. Oral sex is not something that was evolutionary planned. In our animals DNA. Okay. As animals, and we are animals we're supposed to have sex. Maybe a couple of different ways. That's how we're built. Now, we as humans have decided to fanciful things we do a lot of different things. Now. Some including the chandelier some including a quick moment. You know, and you know, certain positions that I don't think we're ever you know, that a person is designed to do. And then of course, also. Or sort of sex. And so. It's not shocking. That somebody could possibly have some sort of a reaction. I mean because we're supposed to be able to have sex relatively safe. You're not really supposed to die from as long as you. Do it the right way. You're not supposed to die from sex. Nobody's supposed to die from sex. That's the way we built some of you guys are like, wow. You know, what about STD's? Well, no think about you know, in the animal kingdom, many animal kingdom just supposed to be a monogamous partner. So, you know, you have a monogamous partner they've never had sex before you you've never had sex. You guys decide to have sex have babies stay together. Nobody has an SSD because they get it from anything else. So technically. Having sex the old biblical way should be probably one of the safest. Yes, you can't die from child birth. Yes. But in terms of Saxon should be fairly safe. But when we started to add other components to it. And choreograph other things and I'm not saying it's wrong. It's just that's what people do it does open up a little bit of risk. And so if you have any allergies. That could be an issue. Now, I had been asked years ago. If somebody was deadly allergic to shrimp, should they avoid oral sex if their partner h strength, and I told them it wouldn't hurt to avoid it just in case. But also kissing you could also give it from kissing to. But since we don't exactly know, what ends up happening in terms of being concentrated down there. I would play it safe. Now chairpeople pretty pretty bad at that whole segment going. No, no, no, you're anti or I'm not saying, I'm anti anything. It's just from a medical standpoint, you know, people like, well, gosh, you know, we just can't live a normal life will actually use you can't live normal life gave this was a rare occurrence. But just keep in mind. We do things that we might not technically be built for the whole purpose of sex is for procreation not recreation, even though yes, I'm a big fan of recreational sex. I think it's a great recreation or exercise, I think. You know, people in monogamous relationship should do it be safe. But we do at a lot of other things that you know, we weren't designed for. So let's just kind of leave it at that and move on as quickly as possible. One eight seven seven one eight hundred seventy oh C D A L.

"amoxicillin" Discussed on 94WIP Sports Radio
"Twenty sports radio ninety four eight twenty twos. A time I'm not gonna lie to most of the day yesterday out. I kept checking in the mirror to look at my hat. Right. And the reason is that a. I'm taking this drug amoxicillin for a potential infection in a root canal. We don't know if it's actually effective. But it says it's a precautionary gesture. Right. Okay. And I'm looking in their few minutes to see if my my face is turning yellow because one of the side effects. I got on web MD was that your eyes and your skin turn yellow. So guess what happens on my dentist? Dr Jonathan Ornstein calls me. And he goes how's everything going and I go back? I I'm infatuated with no one went. I'm gonna turn yellow because it says that any my wife walks in just at that moment when I'm saying, doc when will I turn yellow, and he goes, you're not gonna turn yellow stop reading on the internet. Right. That's a good idea. And I'm gonna those out. He's going to say me right after the show because he writes, a see I think he sees me as a high maintenance patient not him. He would know anything about that. I've seen him four times. On the last three weeks. That's a lot. It's a bit much. You want to see you for he said he wants to poke it a little that won't hurt. But to go to the to listen out looking in the mirror, and I'm not like I John in the right light. Could I get to a seven a seven a seven. We're kinda of we looking at. Shave not a fun house.

Millions may be misdiagnosed with penicillin allergy
"Risk of serious infections, taking those alternative antibiotics not taking the penicillin here to tell us all about it. Dr Frank McGeorge. Good morning. Hey. Good morning, Paul. Yeah. This comes from jam article that was recently published and you know, roughly thirty two million American have noted in their medical records somewhere that they are allergic dependent. Dylan. But in fact, research has shown that somewhere between ninety and ninety five percent of those that have been labelled as penicillin allergic can actually tolerate the drug just fine. So, you know, it's a really important problem. Because penicillin is a great drug. So why did the case that so many people think that they're allergic when you're not really, well, I many people who get an antibiotic might really have a viral infection and viruses often produce rashes, especially when they're children. So if you were given penicillin the same time that a viral rash appeared standby often gets blamed labeled allergy, and that's often the case with children who are told that they're penicillin allergic. And then they're labeled that for the rest of their life. And also antibiotics can force side effects are not allergic like nausea vomiting or something else. And while it might be a sensitivity. It's not true allergy and people often misconstrued that. So those are some of the reasons that people who are not really penicillin allergic might think that they are. It's incredible. Dr Frank McGeorge should discovering and telling us that researchers estimating now up to ninety percent of patients who've been told they're allergic to penicillin actually, aren't that significant. Well, exactly, you know, if you think that you might have a penicillin allergy. It's a good idea to talk to your doctor about a simple allergy tests to find out for sure, and it's also possible, by the way that you might have grown out of your allergy in fact in one recent paper when a small group of people who were once positive on skin testing for penicillin were retested often about six years later. None of them were still positive roller GIC. So they hit actually changed their allergy over time and correctly identifying a penicillin allergy is really important for a bunch of reasons. First of all penicillins are great medications like they said earlier that can be used to target very specific infections with a more precise focus rather than using an overly broad. Non penicillin alternative. It's more likely to breed resistance. Sometimes a penicillin is actually the only or the very most effective antibiotic for a particular infection, so incorrectly assumed allergy could actually deny someone in the best treatments. And also when someone reports a penicillin allergy we often rule out using all of the silicon plight amoxicillin or die clocks and also a lot of doctors avoid using other antibiotics like, yes, lex, although that practices well-supported. It's just what Dr sometimes do because of the potential for a frost reactivity. So it does have a lot of downstream consequences if you are allergic in your record dependent schilling, but it has never really been proven. And people's perceptions of allergy are very different. And so it's important really characterize the reaction, there's some sensitivities. And then there's true allergy dock it occurs to me in this presentation in the morning, which we so greatly. Appreciate you taking time off from your. Henry Ford medical group duties duties, and all the things that you do to be with us. And we appreciate it. We don't very often give absolutes. But it sounds to me this morning. We are establishing that it is an absolute that if you have been told you're allergic to penicillin for your own good. You really absolutely should go. Get retested to find out for sure. Yeah. Definitely there's you know, there's a there's a ton of people out there who basically say, they're penicillin allergic. And frankly, you know, in the emergency department setting, for example, we don't have the time to prove that you are not allergic.
