Treatment of tonsillitis
If you are like most people, you have probably had a sore throat or two in your lifetime. And if you have ever had one of those, chances are that at some point your doctor prescribed antibiotics to help clear up the infection.
For many years it was believed that antibiotics were not effective against tonsillitis, a common infection of the tonsils. However, recent research has shown that antibiotics can be an effective treatment for this condition. In fact, when compared to other treatments such as steroids or surgery, antibiotics may be the best option for some people with tonsillitis.
Most cases of tonsillitis are mild and go away without treatment within a few days. However, if you have severe symptoms or if your infection does not improve after several days, you may need antibiotics to clear up the infection. Your doctor can prescribe antibiotics that are safe for pregnant women and children.
If you find yourself dealing with a sore throat and swollen tonsils, don’t hesitate to ask your doctor about antibiotic therapy as a possible treatment option.
There are many antibiotics that can be used to treat tonsillitis. The most common ones include Keflex, Ceclor, Amoxil, Zithromax, Duricef, Suprax and Ceftin. Your doctor will likely prescribe one of these based on the cause of your tonsillitis and your individual medical history.
List of antibiotics for tonsillitis
Keflex is a type of antibiotic that is prescribed for tonsillitis. It belongs to the cephalosporin family, which are antibiotics that work by killing bacteria. Keflex can be taken orally or intravenously, depending on the severity of your infection.
Keflex is effective against a wide range of bacteria, including Streptococcus pyogenes, the bacterium responsible for most cases of tonsillitis. It usually starts working within hours after you take it and can clear up your infection within days.
Like all antibiotics, Keflex should only be taken when prescribed by a doctor and should not be used to treat viral infections like the common cold or flu.
Ceclor antibiotics are prescribed for tonsillitis, a throat infection that is most commonly caused by Streptococcus bacteria. Tonsillitis may cause a sore throat, fever, swollen tonsils, and difficulty swallowing. Ceclor is a cephalosporin antibiotic that works by stopping the growth of bacteria. It is available as tablets and liquid suspensions.
Ceclor may be prescribed for people with mild to moderate symptoms of tonsillitis. It is not recommended for people with severe symptoms or those who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Ceclor should be taken as directed by your doctor and finished even if you start to feel better. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. Do not double up on doses to make up for missed ones.
Amoxil antibiotics are a class of drugs used to treat tonsillitis, an infection of the tonsils. The most common type of amoxicillin is amoxicillin clavulanate (Augmentin), which is a combination of amoxicillin and clavulanic acid. Amoxil antibiotics are available as tablets, capsules, chewable tablets, and oral suspensions (liquid).
Duricef is a cephalosporin antibiotic prescribed to treat tonsillitis and other infections. It comes in tablet, capsule, and liquid form. Duricef is available as a generic drug.
Duricef may be prescribed to treat tonsillitis caused by bacteria. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. Duricef may also be used to prevent strep throat in people who are at risk for it.
Suprax is a cephalosporin antibiotic that is used to treat various types of infections, including tonsillitis. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. Suprax comes in tablet and suspension form, and is typically taken orally twice a day. Some common side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and headache. Suprax should not be taken if you are allergic to penicillin or other cephalosporin antibiotics.
Ceftin is a cephalosporin antibiotic that is used to treat tonsillitis. It belongs to the class of antibiotics known as beta-lactams, which work by inhibiting the growth of bacteria. Ceftin is available in tablet and liquid form, and can be taken orally or intravenously.
Ceftin may be prescribed for people with mild to moderate tonsillitis, as well as those with more severe cases who are also experiencing other symptoms such as fever or swollen glands. The medication works by killing the bacteria that are causing the infection. It usually takes between two and four days for Ceftin to take effect.
Zithromax is a type of antibiotic that is prescribed to treat tonsillitis. Zithromax can be taken as a pill or an oral suspension. It works by killing the bacteria that are causing your infection.
Zithromax may also be prescribed to prevent tonsillitis if you are at risk for getting it, such as if you have a weak immune system or you often get colds or the flu. Taking Zithromax can help reduce your chances of developing a serious infection.
