flucloxacillin sodium (500mg) for infection (wound)

The capsules don't taste great, and I am a grazer so hard to fit in around food as you have to take on an empty stomach four times a day. I got really bad indigestion while taking the tablets.

flucloxacillin sodium (500mg) for impetigo

Prescribed for impetigo beside mouth. I thought earache on day 4-5 was another infection it was only helped by holding something hot against ear, finished course & asked at chemist and GP's they didn't know cause. Looked online found floxie poisoning is high in over 50's. I was depressed as unable to go to gym and twitching at work with neuralgia. I then took good quality multivitamins with...

flucloxacillin sodium (500mg) for infection (mouth)

I was prescribed this medicine by my GP because she'd opened a sebaceous gland in the corner of my mouth and it could get infected. The problem with this medicine is that you need to wait until you can eat and this was really difficult to plan, and I also developed mild diarrhoea during the course of tablets and a vaginal yeast infection afterwards. No other side effects though and I didn't get...

flucloxacillin sodium (500mg) for infection (wound)

I started using this medicine over a week ago for a serious infection to a abdominal wound. There were very few side effects, just some tiredness and loss of appetite. So far it hasn't been very effective, the infection is actually worse. I'll visit the doctor tomorrow, this might not be the correct antibiotic.

flucloxacillin sodium (500mg) for bacterial infection

I had a bacterial skin infection close to my ear. A cure for 10 days was prescribed, 1 capsule 4 times a day. After 3 days the skin infection was gone but I still had to complete the cure which was very hard. It meant food planning and taking meds for a week more even though the problems were already over. I had some side effects such as diarrhea and rash (bumps and itch). Today is the first da...

flucloxacillin sodium (500mg) for erysipelas

I was prescribed this course because of erysipelas in my arms. After four days clear effect and improvement. Unfortunately after 10 days it hadn't completely gone and I had to have another 10-day course. Absolutely no problem with any side effects.

flucloxacillin sodium (500mg) for bacterial infection

Started taking these on Monday because I had an infected cuticle. I'm now on day 3. As of yesterday I was struggling with headaches, diarrhoea and stomach ache from this morning. Just called the GP and I need to take omeprazole with it. Hopefully this will help. Cuticle seems to be a bit calmer and it's not oozing pus any more.

flucloxacillin sodium (500mg) for erysipelas

Take these capsules 4 times a day for 10 days and this is the second time because of 2 bouts of erysipelas in a short period. Have absolutely so problems with any side effects as many others have reported. Occasionally a little bit nauseous but it goes as soon as it comes. These antibiotics work really well and really quickly.

flucloxacillin sodium (500mg) for erysipelas

Was actually really happy with the progress of my recovery with the help of flucloxacillin. With regards to taking it: a little tricky and a puzzle when it comes to mealtimes. What I have found is that I have very painful calves. Can only manage to walk 20 steps then I have to stop until the pain goes away. Before my erysipelas that wasn't the case. I played tennis 3 × a week but I can't anymor...

Unfortunately the cure didn't work and I had switch to a different antibiotic. Only suffered with burning heartburn, nothing else. Used for infected eczema, the symptoms of which were blisters on my legs and back.

flucloxacillin sodium (500mg) for otitis

Had an ear infection for 2 weeks, the first course did nothing. Now I have Flucloxacilline 500 mg. I have been taking for for precisely 3 days and have a lot of pain with stomach and bowels cramps, all day long. It takes a while to get used to taking it but works okay. Hopefully I'll start to feel better tomorrow as it usually takes 3 days.
