How To Take Antibiotics Safely: 7 Steps To Avoid Side Effects and Heal Faster

Megan N. Brown, PharmD, RPh - August 28, 2018

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

High Creatinine Levels on Your Blood Test? — Taking These 4 Drugs Can Cause a False Alarm

Dr. Sharon Orrange - July 11, 2018

After a blood test, it’s easy to worry about the results. Will they be normal? What problems will they reveal? One of the most common reasons your primary care doctor might call you for an abnormal lab result is high creatinine levels. This usually reflects an impaired kidney function — but not always.

If serum creatinine levels are truly higher than normal, that isn’t a good thing and we know there are some medications that do cause real problems for kidneys. See More

Which Antibiotics Are Less Likely to Cause Diarrhea?

Dr. Sharon Orrange - August 26, 2017

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 Medications Could Harm Your Lungs

Dr. Sharon Orrange - July 10, 2017

The lungs are often subject to harmful side effects from medications because of their large contact surface. While more than 300 medications are known to cause some sort of drug-induced lung disease, some are bigger players than others.

What happens? The most common form of lung injury from medications is drug-induced interstitial lung disease. In the United States, approximately 3% of cases of interstitial (the tissue and space around the air sacs) lung disease are drug induced. See More

Is an Old Antibiotic the Best New Thing to Prevent UTIs?

Dr. Sharon Orrange - November 04, 2016

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are common infections, especially in women. Recurrent UTIs are defined as 3 episodes of a UTI in the previous year or 2 episodes in the previous 6 months. In the primary care setting, 53% of women over 55 report a recurrence of UTI within a year.

As people with recurrent UITs are repeatedly treated with Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim), ciprofloxacin, or nitrofurantoin, we are seeing more and more UTIs with resistant organisms. See More

What to Do About Skin Abscesses

Dr. Sharon Orrange - September 22, 2016

Skin abscesses are more common than you might think, and are usually caused by bacteria that live on the skin or adjacent mucous membranes (like in the nose). More often than not, the staphylococcus aureus bacteria is the most common culprit. In many cases, the cause of abscess is a staph aureus bacteria called MRSA that has become resistant to some antibiotics.

What’s in a name? A skin abscess is a collection of pus that develops under the skin. See More

Roni Shye - April 08, 2015

When you drop off your medications at a pharmacy you may notice that the technician, intern, or pharmacist who greets you and takes your prescriptions may also ask you for an updated list of your allergies.

Ten Things You Can Do to Prevent Illness from an Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria

Dr. Sharon Orrange - November 20, 2013

Antibiotic resistance is a big problem. You’ve all heard about Methicillin-Resistant Staph Aureus (MRSA) causing skin and soft tissue infections but now there is a growing group of resistant bacteria. What this means is many folks may face treatment with an intravenous antibiotic or older more toxic antibiotic to treat common infections like E. Coli urinary tract infections. This is because the bacteria have gotten smart and know how to resist penicillins, ciprofloxacin and Bactrim among others. See More
