Good evening doctor, I want to ask, can I take cefadroxil, even though I’ve been prescribed quinolone antibiotics? thanks.
Hello Christin, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Giving antibiotics must always be adjusted to what bacteria infect a person's body. For example, the bacteria that causes infections in the skin is different from the bacteria that causes infections in the digestive tract, so the antibiotics used to treat infections of the skin can be different from the antibiotics used to treat infections in the digestive tract. Cefadroxil and quinolone class of antibiotics have different ways of working and have the ability to cope with different bacteria. People who have received antibiotics with quinolones may get cefadroxil if they have a bacterial infection that is sensitive to cefadroxil. However, the consumption of antibiotics should not be done haphazardly.
Antibiotics are hard drugs (drugs with a red circle label). You should not take this type of medication without checking from a doctor first and you cannot buy without a prescription from a doctor. Indiscriminate consumption of antibiotics can cause dangerous side effects and can cause wider effects in the form of bacterial resistance to antibiotics. Consult your illness to the doctor first before you consume certain antibiotics.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
