Antibacterial drugs

Order Vibramycin (Doxycycline) No Prescription 100mg

Approximately 90-100% of an oral dose of doxycycline hyclate is absorbed from the GI tract in fasting adults. Following oral administration of capsules containing doxycycline hyclate in fasting adults with normal renal function, peak serum concentrations of doxycycline are attained within 1.5-4 hours and average 1.5-2.1 mcg/mL following a single 100-mg dose and 2.6-3 mcg/mL following a single 200-mg dose.

Tetracyclines General Statement

Tetracyclines, in appropriate dosage forms, are administered orally, IV, or by deep IM injection. IV or IM administration should be used only when the oral route is not feasible, and oral therapy should replace parenteral therapy as soon as possible. IM administration of tetracyclines is rarely indicated because this route of administration is painful and, in the usual dosage, produces lower serum concentrations than does oral administration. If the drugs are given IV, the risk of thrombophlebitis should be considered.

Tetracyclines General Statement: Cautions

The most frequent adverse reactions to tetracyclines are dose-related GI effects including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bulky loose stools, anorexia, flatulence, abdominal discomfort, and epigastric burning and distress. Stomatitis, glossitis, dysphagia, sore throat, hoarseness, black hairy tongue, pancreatitis, and inflammatory lesions in the anogenital region with candidal overgrowth have also been reported occasionally.

Sulfisoxazole, Sulfisoxazole Acetyl

Sulfisoxazole and its derivatives share the actions and uses of the sulfonamides. The relative solubility of the drug in alkaline and slightly acidic urine makes the drug particularly useful for the treatment of urinary tract infections. A combination product containing sulfisoxazole acetyl and erythromycin ethylsuccinate is commercially available for the treatment of acute otitis media caused by susceptible strains of Haemophilus influenzae in children and is usually active against ampicillin-resistant strains of the organism.

Sulfasalazine: Cautions

Generally, the incidence of severe sulfasalazine-induced adverse effects is low, but minor adverse effects occur frequently. Onset of adverse effects generally occurs within a few days to 12 weeks following initiation of sulfasalazine therapy, especially when dosage exceeds 4 g daily. Clinical experience to date indicates that the incidence of sulfasalazine-induced adverse effects in patients with ulcerative colitis generally is similar to that reported in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, although there is a greater incidence of some reactions. The most frequent adverse effects associated with sulfasalazine therapy in patients with ulcerative colitis are anorexia, headache, nausea, vomiting, gastric distress, and reversible oligospermia.
