Antibiotics and Abscesses

  1. I am not a physician so this is just general information.
    I believe cephalexin comes in 250mg and 500mg capsules. If infection was my concern, I would take a minimum 1000-1500mg spread over the course of a day.

    Consult with your doctor.

    I understand. And you would only need it for a day? If not how many?

    No. You would need to continue to take it until the infection cleared. The intial dosages should be higher than what I mentioned above but as time went on I would reduce to those levels.

    Someone else will know more about this, I am certain.

    Size is correct about the ceph. If you take every 4hr as you should, then 250mg is usually good and yields 1.5g/d, but if you do it sloppy only every 6hr, then take 500mg to give a total of 2g/d. Plus, always take a double with your initial dose. An anti-B course is generally 1 or 2 weeks or even months sometimes. 10days is usually effective in my experience for most apps. Don't stop prematurely. Keep going for a few days even after you think your better.

    I promise I'll get something together very soon as far as a sticky goes. Thanx for the patience guys.

  5. Size and Dr. D - what is the most likely cause of abcesses? Is it bacteria in the solution?

  6. I am willing to bet the most common cause is lack of sterility with injection techniques. Or maybe improper filtration technique? Or not enough BA/BB? I am curious too.

    I have had "gear flu" and it seems to be more a reaction to the BA, but not something that would cause an actual abcess. A bit annoying when your whole tricep and forearm swell up for a week at the first part of a cycle. Makes benching tough =D

    I can't wait to see the doc's writeup on this.

  7. If anti-biotics are used during a cycle, would using pro-biotics help restore friendly bacteria since anti-biotics kill good and bad bacteria ?

  8. How much amoxicilina would you take if you had an abcess? I believe Doc said it was 250 - 500mg 4xs a day is that correct?

    bump the amox

    I've got a ****load sitting at my house.

    My g/f als has a HUGE thing of penicillin VX...what the hell is VX? (Her dad is a dentist so he writes scripts for all kinds of crap to keep around the house.)

  10. If we're on the topic I just got a nasty ear infection on cycle - should I quit the cycle (I will be prescribed antibiotics) or continue with the Anti's or use something else?

    Usually not, but it can occur with suspensions or if you don't swab the vial septum and dust gets in the vial with the needle penetration. Not swabbing the skin for at least 15sec is up there on the list. Also, foreign proteins can cause fever and look like an infection. This is from cotton usually, or unsterile homebrews or dirty/cheap commercial gear.

    WOW I did not know you were suppose to swab for 15 seconds. Damn the little alcohol pads would be lint by then. But I do use antibacterial soap and was the entire area for about 20 seconds followed by rubbing the area with 1 alcohol pad then opening another one and rub the area again.

    Dr. I have always wondered if you should cover the rubber stopper between shots. It just seems that all sorts of bacteria would land on it. I wipe it 2 or 3 times with an alcohol wipe, is that enough?

  13. An abscess can develop for different reasons. The major reason in my opinion is "dirty" products. Contamination can definitely be an issue. For this reason, amps are nice; one usage and done. If using vials, I know people like to draw with big needles but this causes more trama to the stopper so be careful. However, I should add that I believe cellulitis is much more often the case rather than an abscess.

    Yes, yogurt or acidophylus powder work to combat this problem very well

    Yes, exactly, but take a double dose for the very first one

    Pen V is good stuff too. It's just the a-phenoxymethyl version of pen whereas the G is the benzyl version. They are the two major ones out of many different pens. So it's all good bro! I'd keep that g-friend if her dad is liberal with the scripts

    LOL. I've been with her for three years and he hardly talks to me--and she says that he likes me, too. LOL.

    I'll just have to wait till I'm done med school if I want script stuff And, right now I'm still in UG Schol, so I've got a ways to go hehehehe

    Maybe I'll steal some of her peni

    Yeah that's all I do, just hold the swap on there firm for 15sec, then wipe as I remove it. After you withdraw the shot, wipe the surface again so no drug residue is left on it and then restore it. I don't bother to cover it then, just keep it in a ziplock inbetween uses.

    You are developing a very well rounded scrapbook brother! Keep listening to me and it will turn into a useless 'crapbook' of endless facts

    When you finally graduate, I'm gonna need a new doc, you know that right? I'll be your first pateint! But I warn you, I have "issues"... but you already knew that

  22. I'm thinking of radiology. I hear that many of them are working from their houses these days But, I'm sure I can still write you your script for Test

    Work at a reactor, I majored in Nuclear too, and will not practice nuc med from a hosp or my home (the GM/GC keeps clicking like mad everytime I walk in the door... J/J) But the good money is north-east with power or experimental reactors. By then my test levels should be nil, and I'll call my good 'ol buddy Kwyckemynd00!

  24. 800mg/wk sound like good HRT dose?
