Antibiotics for Strep Throat

Sep 19, 2008 | Posted by: Chr | Full story: www.emedexpert.com

About one sore throat in ten is strep throat. Strep throat is caused by the bacteria Streptococcus pyogenes. With strep throat, the sore throat is often more severe and persists.

What antibiotics do is to kill the bacteria and cut down the risk of possible dreaded complications.

I've tried both original brand and generic pills. There is no difference in effectiveness as far as I can tell between the brand and Indian generic versions. The real difference is price, no comparison. And the India suppliers from http://allbestmeds.info seem honest and reliable.

Strep throat is caused by Group A beta-hemolytic streptococci which are ordinarily

spread by direct person-to-person contact, most likely through droplets of saliva or nasal secretions.

Antibiotics should not be prescribed until the culture result confirms strep throat or another bacterial pathogen. Antibiotic treatment can begin immediately only when:

Patient is very ill .
Culture results will be delayed for more than 72 hours .
Patient follow-up will be difficult .

so i think don't often use antibiotics for strep throat, unless without any other methods.

Can also help prevent some of the rare complications related either to the strep infection itself or to the body's immune response to the infection

I just recently had Strep throat, and was prescribed Amoxicillin, To take twice a day for 10 days. I'm on my 6th day of taking the amoxicillin and now am covered in hives. Doctors said to stop taking it, but these hives are terrible!:(

Amoxil from http://trustedamoxicillin.info for Upper Respiratory Tract Infection: no side effects, gentle but efective. Feelings of relief began a few hours after the first pill.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://inhousegeneric.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#yibr for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.

http://inhousegeneric.com is an honest and genuine online pharmacy. We were not sure at first because this was our first order of generic medication from this pharmacy. Although it takes a bit long because it got stuck with custom, we are completely sastisfied with this online pharmacy.
You won't be disappointed with them. Their customer service is great too although they need to improve their phone system a bit more. If you need to call them just be sure to call during their working hours. Other than that we highly and sincerely recommend this online pharmacy to everyone.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

Wouldn't take antibiotics for strep. Natural ways of healing can get you better.

If you keep taking vitamins on a daily basis you'll become more defensible against infections and sickness. I tried this supplement called instant immunity, that I found on amazon. Been feeling pretty good I'd say.

I recently had an experience with someone and was left sick for a few days after. Literally couldn't move out of bed and had a canker sore. Finally saw my physician when I felt well enough and told me to look into some vitamins, foods and herbs.

He gave me a list of vitamins and foods to make part of my daily diet. Once I started looking into these vitamins and herbs that boost your immune system, I found this product called instant immunity. Along with my proper diet and daily intact of that instant immunity supplement, I've been ok and have had one outbreak so far. For anyone that's in the same predicament, I would recommend that course of action as it's helped me get through this.

Some antibiotics are very effective, just ask your doctor. I usually get it online at http://my-usa-direct.com/... cause it costs cheaper there. But you can also by at local pharmacy in your city.
