    The dose of Gantrisin Pediatric depends on the weight of the patient in kilograms. The first dose is 75 mg/kg. The next doses are 150mg/kg/day divided in 4 doses (about 37.5 mg/kg for each dose).

    Gantrisin comes in bottles of 100 mg/ml. For example, a 10 kg infant (about 22 pounds) would be given 1 1/2 tsp for the first dose and 3/4 tsp for the maintenance doses. Gantrisin should not be given to infants under 2 months of age.

    Do not take Sulfamethoxazole, Trimethoprim, Phenazopyridine, or Zotrim, if you are pregnant, breast feeding, or expect to become pregnant unless instructed by your doctor. This medication is not approved for use in children. It may increase risk of liver or kidney disease and skin reactions or bone marrow suppression in elderly patients. If you are allergic to any of the medication’s ingredients or have had an allergic reaction to sulfonamide in the past, do not take this medication. Zotrim should not be confused with the weight loss drug Zotrim.

    Sulfamethoxazole, Trimethoprim, Phenazopyridine, also known as Zotrim, is a multi-ingredient medication used to treat specific types of urinary tract infections. These include urinary tract infections caused by strains of Enterobacter species Escherichia coli, Klebsiella species, Proteus mirabilis, Morganella morganii, and Proteus vulgaris. Sulfamethoxazole, Trimethoprim, Phenazopyridine is only meant to relieve symptoms but not to treat the cause of the symptoms. Individuals using this medication should still seek a definitive diagnosis and discontinue use of the medication once alternative treatment has begun. Prescription Zotrim should not be confused with the weight loss drug Zotrim.

    Amikin Pediatric or amikacin sulfate is in the class D category for pregnant women meaning that it is not safe for women to use during pregnancy. Amikin rapidly crosses the placenta going to the kidneys and urine of the fetus causing damage. Ototoxicity is known to occur with other aminoglycosides and could potentially occur with Amikin.

    Do not take doripenem if you are allergic to it, other carbapenem antibiotics (like imipenem, meropenem), penicillin antibiotics (like nafcillin, ampicillin) or cephalosporin antibiotics (like cefazolin, ceftriaxone). You should inform your doctor about all of the allergies you have to any drugs. Your doctor also needs to know about all other medications that you are taking. It is particularly important that your doctor is aware if you are using valproic acid or probenecid. If you have a seizure disorder or a kidney disease, your doctor also needs to know this before administering doripenem. You should know that doripenem may cause some serious side effects that include: trouble breathing, seizures, headaches, fever, watery or bloody diarrhea, red skin rash, peeling and severe blistering. If any of these symptoms should occur, it is very important that you tell your doctor immediately.

    Trimethoprim is a prescription medication that's used to treat certain bacterial infections, including urinary tract infections, respiratory infections, and middle ear infections. Always make sure you take this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. In general, trimethoprim is taken by mouth, usually once a day at the same time each day. For trimethoprim to be effective, you must use it regularly, so keep taking it even if you feel better. If you stop taking the medication too early, the bacteria may continue to grow and the infection may come back. There are several different brand-names for this medication, including Proloprim and Trimpex. Generic versions are also available. Talk to your doctor to determine whether trimethoprim is right for you.

    Xifaxan can cause side effects including mild itching, headache, stomach pain, gas, bloating, nausea, vomiting, constipation, rectal muscle spasms, and frequent bowel movements. If these side effects continue, or your traveler's diarrhea doesn't clear up in a few days, your doctor might suggest an alternate antibiotic. If side effects become severe or you show sign of infection, see your doctor right away. If you develop an allergic reaction to Xifaxan, seek emergency help. An allergic reaction can cause trouble breathing, swelling in your face and tongue, and itching or rash.
