Principen Description

Principen is an antibiotic from the penicillin family prescribed for bacterial infections including bladder and intestinal infections, gonorrhea, and pneumonia. Some infections could be caused by something other than bacteria, so your doctor may take a swab or scraping to test for the cause but may suggest taking Principen until results are in as there is a strong suspicion it is a bacterial infection. Some of the bacteria susceptible to Principen are E. coli, Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus Pneumoniae, and Staphylococcus Epidermidis.

How Principen Causes the Instability of Bacterial Cell Walls

Principen or generic Ampicillin will work as an irreversible inhibitor of transpeptidase when taken as directed. This enzyme is essential to the bacteria for making cell walls so the bacteria are able to grow and multiply. Without transpeptidase during the final stage of making their cell walls, the contents will leak out as other substances seep in and the bacteria cannot survive. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Conditions Treated by Principen

Bacterial gastroenteritis, better known as food poisoning, is a common occurrence that can happen if you eat undercooked food, food that has not been stored properly or refrigerated, or from cross-contamination from unclean food prep areas. Salmonella and E. coli are two of the types of bacteria that can cause food-borne illnesses. Vomiting, diarrhea and nausea is your body’s way of trying to expel the threat. It is important to keep hydrated and drink fluids to replace the liquid your body is losing due to the vomiting and diarrhea.

Before You Start Taking Principen

Ask your doctor if Principen is safe to take while you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions and allergies with your doctor and list any OTC or Rx drugs you currently use or take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements. This will help your doctor determine if Principen is the best medication for you. Antibiotics can cause birth control pills to be less effective so you should use a diaphragm, spermicide, or a condom during sexual intimacy to avoid the risk of becoming pregnant.

Proper Use of Principen

Until you know how Principen will affect you, avoid performing any task that requires you to be alert. Keep Principen out of children’s reach and away from pets. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of Principen unless told otherwise by your doctor.

Take Principen for the time period prescribed by your doctor, even if you feel better, as the infection could return or the bacteria may have built up a resistance to the drug so it will be useless if you contract the same type of bacterial infection in the future.
