patients who are allergic to penicillin
Overuse of antibiotics has been shown to drive the evolution of mutant strains of bacteria immune to a broad spectrum of drugs, including penicillins , cephalosporins, and quinolones.
The antibiotics used were mainly cephalosporins, penicillins , fluoroquinolones, aminoglycosides, tetracyclines and antituberculosis drugs.
For the patient who is allergic to penicillins , the use of trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole is indicated.
Studies from the late 1960s and the 1970s revealed that streptococcal eradication was equal with intramuscularly and orally administered penicillins .
All the usual range of antibiotics, penicillins and cephalosporins are pretty much useless against these things.
The lactams are a family of antimicrobial agents consisting of four major groups: penicillins , cephalosporins, monobactams, and carbapenems.
The surprising finding was that people who had reacted to sulphonamides were more likely to react to penicillins than to sulphonamide non-antibiotics.
Antibiotic categories to consider include penicillins , cephalosporins, and macrolides.
Oral antibiotics are usually used in the treatment and include first-generation cephalosporins, penicillinase-resistant penicillins , macrolides, and fluoroquinolones.
