Bellacid and birth-control measures

Anyone who is using these methods of birth control should discuss their options with their physician or health care provider.
Although Bellacid can treat certain infections effectively, repeated use can reduce its effectiveness.
A 20-year study published in the BMJ in 2014 found that 1 in 10 of all antibiotic prescriptions failed to treat the infection. The number of antibiotic failures has been rising.
This would appear to indicate a growing tendency toward antibiotic resistance, where overuse of antibiotics is reducing their effectiveness.
For this reason, doctors need to be sure that the patient's condition is caused by a bacteria, and to know if a patient has previously used Bellacid.
Alcohol does not affect the antibiotic activity of Bellacid, but patients should avoid drinking alcohol while an active infection is present. This can support the body in effectively eradicating infection.
The use of alcohol may also mask side effects that can occur with Bellacid, increasing the potential for complications.
Health care providers should also know if the patient has any of the following conditions:
- allergy to penicillin or cephalosporin antibiotics
- hay fever
- kidney disease
Being clear and concise with doctors and health care providers will ensure the safe and effective use of Bellacid.
