What if I take too much?
Accidentally taking an extra dose of Moxilen is unlikely to harm you or your child.
Speak to your pharmacist or doctor if you're worried or you take more than 1 extra dose.
Like all medicines, Moxilen can cause side effects, although not everyone gets them.
Moxilen in vitro susceptibility testing methods for determining minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) and zone sizes have not been standardized, validated, or approved for testing H. pylori. Specimens for H. pylori and clarithromycin susceptibility test results should be obtained on isolates from patients who fail triple therapy. If clarithromycin resistance is found, a non-clarithromycin-containing regimen should be used.

Q: How do you take Moxilen-potassium clavulanate?
A: Augmentin is an oral antibacterial combination consisting of the semisynthetic antibiotic Moxilen and the ?-lactamase inhibitor, clavulanate potassium (the potassium salt of clavulanic acid). Moxilen is an analog of ampicillin. Augmentin is generally well tolerated. The side effects reported with Augmentin use were mild and transient in nature and less than 3% of patients discontinued therapy because of drug-related side effects. The most common side effects with Augmentin use include diarrhea/loose stools, nausea, skin rashes and urticaria, vomiting, and vaginitis. The overall incidence of side effects, and in particular diarrhea, increased with the higher recommended dose. Other less frequently reported reactions include: Abdominal discomfort, flatulence, and headache. To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of Augmentin and other antibacterial drugs, Augmentin should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria. The usual adult dose of Augmentin is one 500-mg tablet every 12 hours or one 250-mg tablet every 8 hours. For more severe infections and infections of the respiratory tract, the dose should be one 875-mg tablet of Augmentin every 12 hours or one 500-mg tablet of Augmentin every 8 hours. Augmentin may be taken without regard to meals; however, absorption of clavulanate potassium is enhanced when Augmentin is administered at the start of a meal. To minimize the potential for gastrointestinal intolerance, Augmentin should be taken at the start of a meal.
Vaginal yeast infection
Moxilen works well because it can keep bacteria from growing. Unfortunately, sometimes that extends to “healthy” bacteria that maintain pH balance in the vagina. As a result, a person’s vaginal pH may become more basic, yeast can thrive, and a yeast infection can result.
Signs of a yeast infection include itching, redness, and cottage-cheese-like discharge. Over-the-counter medications are available to treat yeast infections. If you aren’t sure if it’s a yeast infection or another infection type, you should talk to your doctor. A doctor can also prescribe stronger medications to treat a yeast infection that doesn’t improve after a few days of over-the-counter treatment.
Unusual bleeding or bruising
Bleeding under the skin can occur from broken blood vessels that form tiny pinpoint red dots (called petechiae). Blood can also collect under the tissue in larger flat areas (called purpura), or in a very large bruised area (called an ecchymosis).
Moxilen can increase the risk of bleeding. If you’re experiencing either unusual bleeding or bruising, see a doctor immediately. Internal bleeding may be occurring, which could lead to bleeding in the digestive system, or, in rare cases, the brain.
To prevent this, make sure your doctor knows if you’re on anticoagulants or blood thinners before you start taking Moxilen.
If you experience this side effect of Moxilen, it’s considered a rare but serious side effect. Seek medical attention as soon as possible.
An overdose of Moxilen should be reported to your regional emergency situation center, so make certain you constantly take the appropriate amount. Taking even more of Moxilen could generate the complying with symptoms: serious skin breakout, complication, habits modifications, and seizure. Your doctor requires to understand if you are taking other medications, especially antibiotics, probenecid, sulfa medicines, or methotrexate. If you obtain such adverse effects as vomiting, queasiness, frustration, thrush, tummy discomfort, or vaginal itchiness, there is no have to fret - these negative side effects will most likely go away on their very own.
