I have strept throat, and Im allergic to penicillin, can take amoxicillin or keflex instead?
i dont have a way to go to the doctor because i have no money and no car, but i have these 2 med's here at the house, i know that they arent supposed to work if they sit there for so long, but it is better than nothing wouldnt you agree??

If you are allergic to penicillin, you shouldn't take ANY meds in the cillin line. I don't know about keflex. Most hospitals should still be able to see you; most public ones offer some type of free care. Isn't there someone who could give you a ride? Please do not take what you have at home; it may not be effective and could possibly kill you if you have a reaction to it.
Good luck.

I'm allergic to penicillin. But I would ask your doctor for advise. Just call and he coould probably fax a perscription to your pharmacist. Keflex works great with me if you can get by the fact that it smells like rotten eggs. But it is a form of penicillin, so would want to check with your doctor first. It's a 50/50 chance that you could be allergic to it as well. Which is why you should still ask the doctor. Different strokes for different folks ya know. So ask your doctor, it still doesn't hurt to ask.

No i won't agree, nor do i think getting medical advice that could mean your life from ya is such a good idea.

first of all go to see your doctor, he will probably prescribe some mix of amoxicillin and clavulanic acids

Do not mess with your life. Call the Dr and explain your situation. He/she may even have samples to give you.

Hi there !
Amoxycillin belongs to the same family of penicillins and is usually NOT advised for a patient with the history of allergy to penicillins.
Keflex is cephalexins and usually safe..But are you allergic to cephalexin ? have you taken it before ?
In addition, if you have any renal, liver, intestinal problems, diabetes, etc, cephalexins are not usually advised by the doctors.
My sincere advise, ring up your friendly family doctor and have a chat with him...right ?
best wishes !

no, what would be best is to find a way to get to the doctor...cab, walk, something. takeing medical advice from random people on the internet is not a good idea, nor is taking medications if you dont know how old they are or what dosage or whatever...your best bet is to find ANY way to get to the doctor

You can take the amoxicillin for sure, I don't know about keflex. If they are super old they might just not work as well. I am allergic to penicillin and I take amoxicillin when I get strep (which is a lot).

It is always better to go to the doctor though. If you have no $, you can try to take a bus to the local department of health and they will take care of you for free if you are over 18. You can also get free antibiotics at some grocery stores with a Rx

Amoxicillin (Amoxil, Trimox) is in the class of meds known as penicillins. If you have a sensitivity to penicillin, amoxicillin is contraindicated for you.

Cephalexin monohydrate (Keflex) is a cephalosporin. It's the drug of choice for the treatment of Strep infections.

Now, here's the caution: Do not keep antibiotics lying around. Discard them. If they have passed their shelf-life then they are NOT better than nothing. I don't agree with you. And you wouldn't know the dosage and dosing schedule anyway.

Take a bus to a free clinic.
