Megan N. Brown, PharmD, RPh
Megan N. Brown, PharmD, RPh -

Deciding whether to wait out a sickness or head to the doctor’s office for antibiotics can be a tough choice to make. Untreated bacterial infections can have serious and deadly consequences, but side effects of antibiotics are no fun either. This post will give you an idea of what types of infections usually do—or don’t—require antibiotics.

 

 

How do antibiotics work?

Antibiotics are prescription-only medications that fight bacteria in one of two ways: they either kill bacteria or stop bacteria from growing. See More

Megan N. Brown, PharmD, RPh -

Before antibiotics were discovered, infections like pneumonia and tuberculosis were the leading causes of death in the US. Fortunately, we now have antibiotics to treat these diseases—we just have to remember to use them safely. After all, these infection-fighting medications can pose serious risks to you and thousands of other people who rely on antibiotics every day.

Life-threatening side effects and antibiotic resistance—when bacteria are no longer sensitive to an antibiotic—are concerns when it comes to antibiotic safety. See More

Are Z-Packs Still a Good Choice for Infections?

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

The Z-Pack (Zithromax, azithromycin) is an antibiotic medication that unfairly gets a bad rap. True, it’s often incorrectly prescribed for sinus infections caused by viruses, which don’t respond to antibiotics. But Z-Packs offer many benefits we shouldn’t forget. Here are some of reasons why they’re still worth considering.

First, Z-Packs are easy to use and they’re cheap. They come as a pack of five pills, which you take daily over the course of five days, and they’re highly effective. See More

Is It Safe To Give Your Child Antibiotics?

Infants are exposed to germs that their newly developing immune system often cannot fight off on its own. In order to treat those nasty infections, many pediatricians will prescribe your child an oral antibiotic. But are these medications safe?

Although these antibiotics have their benefits, there may also be some downsides to their usage. Recently, results posted in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) show that using acid-suppressive medications and antibiotics in infants could increase the risk of potential allergies later in childhood.

Every year, insurance companies change their prescription drug coverage, adding and removing certain medications from formularies. Of the 80 drugs dropped from formularies in 2018 by Express Scripts and Caremark (two of the largest companies that manage pharmacy benefits for more than 200 million Americans), three are different versions of the same drug, doxycycline.

Which means that doxycycline, a commonly used antibiotic, is now a lot more expensive. See More

Should I Use a Z-Pak for Sinus Infections?

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

“Can I get a Z-Pak?” is a question asked every day by our patients struggling with an upper respiratory infection. Trust me, I want to help you get better, but that’s not always the way to do it.

What is the Z-Pak used to treat?

The Z-Pak (Zithromax), is a five-day course of the antibiotic, azithromycin. It’s used to treat certain bacterial infections, including some sinus infections and upper respiratory tract infections (URIs) that lead to headaches, congestion, and runny noses. See More

It’s true: Drugs really are getting more expensive.

According to a new GoodRx analysis, the average list price for the top 100 prescription drugs climbed higher over the past year, even as concerns over high drug prices grow in the U.S.    

Our top insights:

  • Birth control drugs also got more expensive, with list prices nearly 8% higher over past year
  • Prices for generic drugs rose more than 5% over the past 12 months

Using a GoodRx Index of the 100 most commonly prescribed drugs, we found that cash prices increased from an average of around $78 in February 2017 to over $81 this past January – an increase of 6%. See More

Which Antibiotics Are Less Likely to Cause Diarrhea?

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Antibiotic-associated diarrhea and colitis is affecting more of you, given the widespread use of antibiotics. Clostridium difficile (C. diff) is the organism that causes antibiotic-associated colitis; this happens because the bacteria is allowed to overgrow in the intestine when the normal intestinal flora is changed due to antibiotics. C. diff can release toxins that bind to receptors on intestinal epithelial cells causing inflammation (colitis) and diarrhea. See More

These Prescriptions May Cause Ringing in the Ears

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, is a perception of sound in one or both ears in the absence of an external source. It’s often described by patients as buzzing, ringing, or whooshing. While there is often no known cause for tinnitus, there are a handful of medications that may contribute.

Medications that are known to cause tinnitus or hearing loss are considered “ototoxic medications.” Discontinuing these medications can prevent tinnitus and hearing progression, though the ringing may not always go away. See More
