Free Antibiotics
« on: August 26, 2011, 08:27:54 AM »
Our local pharmacy is having one of those free antibiotics promotions.  Below is the list.  Assuming I can get my doctor to write the prescription(s) [there is no limit on the mumber of presciptions that can be filled!!] which should I get?  I assume tabs are better than suspensions and 1/4 of my family has a penecillin allergy.  Thanks.

Why are they doing Free? Do you have to meet specific requirements? Sounds odd to me... but my choices would be...

Amoxicillin, 250mg Capsule                       
Amoxicillin, 500mg Capsule                     
Cephalexin, 250mg Capsule                     
Cephalexin, 500mg Capsule                     
Ciprofloxacin, 250mg Tab                       
Ciprofloxacin, 500mg Tab                       
Tetracycline, 250mg Capsule                   
Tetracycline, 500mg

If I had a choice, I would also add in Antirobe capsules and, Liquamycin® LA-200® injectable and NuFlor injectable (the last two are not for humans).

BUT.. that said.. do you know the right situation to use them and for what issue?  And how to use them properly? I would be surprised if your doctor would send out an RX for them.

Pharmacies at several stores (Walmart, Publix, etc) have been offering free antibiotics for several years, as long as you have an Rx and it's on the store's list.
