Along with their useful effects, most medicines can cause unwanted side-effects although not everyone experiences them. The table below contains some of the most common ones associated with Clamonex. You will find a full list in the manufacturer's information leaflet supplied with your medicine. The unwanted effects often improve as your body adjusts to the new medicine, but speak with your doctor or pharmacist if any of the following continue or become troublesome.

Q: Can Clamonex treat bronchitis?
A: Bronchitis is an inflammation of the air passages (trachea; bronchi; bronchioles) of the lungs. The airways narrow, the air flow is reduced, and heavy mucus or phlegm is produced. This infection may be caused by a virus or bacterium. There are two types of bronchitis: Acute bronchitis -- usually occurs after a severe cold, when the bodyâ€™s immunity is weakened. The condition often clears up in two weeks or less. Chronic bronchitis is commonly associated with cigarette smoking. Repeated bouts of acute bronchitis can also lead to development of chronic bronchitis. If left untreated, serious respiratory problems, lung damage or heart failure may develop. Acute viral bronchitis usually goes away on its own after a week. Antibiotics will not help because these medicines only kill bacteria. Bacterial bronchitis may require antibiotic treatment. It is important to get plenty of rest, to drink lots of fluid (unless fluid restricted), and to treat the symptoms such as fever and headache with Tylenol as recommended by your doctor. You should also refrain from smoking. Amoxil (Clamonex) is a semi-synthetic antibiotic in the penicillin group of drugs. Amoxil acts by inhibiting the synthesis of bacterial cell walls of both gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. Amoxil is used to treat many different types of infections caused by bacteria, such as ear infections, bladder infections, pneumonia, gonorrhea, and E. coli or salmonella infection. The most common side effects reported with Amoxil use include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, rashes, and antibiotic-associated colitis. Amoxil should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by bacteria. Prescribing Amoxil in the absence of a proven or strongly suspected bacterial infection or a prophylactic indication is unlikely to provide benefit to the patient and increases the risk of the development of drug-resistant bacteria.
Abdominal pain is pain that you feel anywhere between your chest and groin. This is often referred to as the stomach region or belly.
Almost everyone experiences pain in the abdomen at one time or another. Most of the time, it is not caused by a serious medical problem. Stomach discomfort or nausea is a common side effect of Clamonex. Less common symptoms include abdominal pain and vomiting.
Taking your dose of Clamonex with a meal may help prevent this side effect.
To cope with an upset stomach, eat bland, easy to digest foods like soups, crackers, and toast. Peppermint is thought to help upset stomach symptoms. You can take anti-nausea medication if necessary.
If you experience severe, prolonged abdominal pain or see blood in your vomit or stool, seek medication attention immediately.
Before taking Clamonex
Some medicines are not suitable for people with certain conditions, and sometimes a medicine can only be used if extra care is taken. For these reasons, before you start taking Clamonex it is important that your doctor knows:
- If you suspect you may have glandular fever (the symptoms are high temperature (fever), sore throat, swollen glands).
- If you have an allergic condition, or if you have ever had an allergic reaction to a medicine. This is especially important if you have ever had a bad reaction to any penicillin antibiotic.
- If you have any problems with the way your k >
The half-life of Clamonex is 61.3 minutes. Approximately 60% of an orally administered dose of Clamonex is excreted in the urine within 6 to 8 hours. Detectable serum levels are observed up to 8 hours after an orally administered dose of Clamonex. Since most of the Clamonex is excreted unchanged in the urine, its excretion can be delayed by concurrent administration of probenecid .
