Q: Celestamine, Piriton, Amoxil, and Flugone are the drugs that I occasionally take. What are the side effects?
A: Amoxil (Moxlin) is an antibiotic that is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. The most common side effects of Moxlin are diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. Rarely, severe side effects can occur when taking Moxlin such as severe allergic reactions (rash, hives, itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue); bloody stools; confusion; dark urine; fever, chills, or persistent sore throat; red, swollen, blistered, or peeling skin; seizures; severe diarrhea; stomach pain or cramps; and unusual bruising or bleeding. Stop taking Moxlin immediately, and consult your physician immediately if any of these severe effects occur. Celestamine, Piriton, and Flugone are not approved for use in the United States; therefore, I cannot provide any information about these medications. Burton Dunaway, PharmD
Before taking Moxlin
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 Moxlin 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 >
Q: Can Moxlin cause high blood pressure?
A: Moxlin is an antibiotic that is used to treat many different bacterial infections including ear infections, bladder infections, and pneumonia. Commonly reported side effects of Moxlin include rash and other hypersensitivity reactions that suggest an allergy to the medication, diarrhea or stomach upset, and headache. A review of the package insert did not specifically list increased blood pressure as a side effect of Moxlin. If you think you are having a side effect from your medication, it is best to talk to your healthcare provider. Do not stop or change your medication unless you are directed to do so by your provider. Antibiotics, like Moxlin, should be taken as directed on the label. It is important to complete the medication as directed and not stop taking the medication as soon as you start to feel better. Skipping doses or not completing the full course of therapy may increase the risk that the infection will come back and that it will be harder to treat. There are many potential causes of high blood pressure or hypertension. The most common causes include smoking, being overweight, stress, and excessive salt intake. High blood pressure usually has no symptoms, but it will cause damage to the organs of the body over time. Treatment typically begins with lifestyle modifications and then medications are added as needed. Michelle McDermott, RPh, PharmD

Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment Of Fertility
Long-term studies in animals have not been performed to evaluate carcinogenic potential. Studies to detect mutagenic potential of Moxlin alone have not been conducted; however, the following information is available from tests on a 4:1 mixture of Moxlin and potassium clavulanate (AUGMENTIN). AUGMENTIN was non-mutagenic in the Ames bacterial mutation assay, and the yeast gene conversion assay. AUGMENTIN was weakly positive in the mouse lymphoma assay, but the trend toward increased mutation frequencies in this assay occurred at doses that were also associated with decreased cell survival. AUGMENTIN was negative in the mouse micronucleus test and in the dominant lethal assay in mice. Potassium clavulanate alone was tested in the Ames bacterial mutation assay and in the mouse micronucleus test, and was negative in each of these assays. In a multi-generation reproduction study in rats, no impairment of fertility or other adverse reproductive effects were seen at doses up to 500 mg/kg (approximately 2 times the 3 g human dose based on body surface area).
Resistance to Moxlin is mediated primarily through enzymes called beta-lactamases that cleave the beta-lactam ring of Moxlin, rendering it inactive.
Moxlin has been shown to be active against most isolates of the bacteria listed below, both in vitro and in clinical infections as described in the INDICATIONS AND USAGE section.
8. Cautions with other medicines
There are some medicines that don't mix well with Moxlin.
Tell your doctor if you're taking these medicines before you start taking Moxlin:
- a blood thinner called warfarin
- gout medicines called probenecid and allopurinol
- other antibiotics
What should I avoid while giving Moxlin to my pet?
