Connection Between Adipex and Antibiotics
Many obese people need to treat both obesity and infectious diseases. When anti-obesity and anti-bacterial therapy are conducted at the same time, obese patient is prescribed an individual dosing for all the drugs he takes.
Despite the fact that Adipex pills do not interact with antibiotics, patients should keep an interval between their intakes. Adipex pills may cause the same side effects as antibiotics. Therefore, before prescribing Adipex and antibiotics, the doctor should learn their pharmacodynamic features.
For treatment of bacterial infections, different groups of antibiotics are prescribed.
Along with Adipex, doctors prescribe antibiotics from the following groups: Penicillins, Cephalosporins, Macrolides, Tetracyclines, Lincosamides, Carbapenems, Aminoglycosides, Sulfa and TMP, Quinolones, Nitroimidazoles, Oxazolidinones and Monobactams.
Almost all antibiotics can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and dizziness. Adipex pills can cause identical adverse reactions. Therefore, the risk and severity of these side effects increases after the intake of Adipex and antibiotics.
Just as Adipex, antibiotics can be taken before or after food intake.
- Maximal concentration of antibiotics in the blood is achieved in 1-2 hours after oral intake (approximately). Hence, the most severe side effects of antibiotics occur in this period.
- Maximal concentration of Phentermine in the blood plasma is achieved in 3-4 hours after oral intake of a single Adipex dose. Therefore, the most severe Adipex side effects occur in this period.
To prevent severe side effects, Adipex pills have to be taken 6 hours before, or 2-3 after the application of every antibiotic dose. If Adipex pills are taken in the morning, the antibiotic dose can be taken with food, while Adipex dose in 2-3 hours after the breakfast.
