I got sick about four years ago on a weekend, no doctor open, and my friend brought it to me. I was like seriously? For fish? Worked like a charm. And I have used it now several times with great results. I had two of my regular prescription left and when I looked at the two pills, couldn’t tell them apart. Right now I have had a severe cold and have been on it for three days. Three a day and works good . Already tell a difference .
i am not a doctor and do not know the correct answer if you are suppose to be able to take these safely but out pf desperation and a severe tonsillitis infection i took a round of fishmox when my doctor was closes for days during a holiday and not only did it clear the infection fast but i didnt die or get ill. Hope this helps! When you look up these pills on drugs.com the exact same pill pops up as a regular human antibiotic
I realize the OP has already received their answer 6 yrs ago. I wanted to point out for others looking for an answer that these meds are RE-packaged. If they were different products, they would just be packaged. Using the correct product for the ailment and dosing, especially for cat, dog, or squirrel use, will require some research and/or communication w a medical or veterinary professional.
Absolutely! I have taken “fish mox, fin mox” for a long time. In fact, my family heard of this from a survivor show. In my opinion, it’s just as good as any other amoxicillin we get from the pharmacy. In addition, it nice to always have some on hand instead of going to the dr for a sinus infection, tooth infection, ear infection, etc.
I have taken it myself for years. I use it when I have had dental emergencies and can't get to the dentist on a weekend. It works as well as that which is prescribed for human's. I am allergic to penicillin, and am so glad that i can keep this on hand at all times. I also use it for my pets.
My son used it when he was out of town on a ski trip for an infected hand. It works fine and won't poison you. I am a registered nurse.
Would it be safe for a pregnant woman?
I purchased Fish Mox Forte - Amoxicillin 500 mg about 6 months ago when a stray cat I'd been feeding outside developed an infection on it's cheek. The infection was getting worse, and there was no way that I could cage it for a vet visit. A google search provided dosage for cats, and I gave it fish mox in canned food twice daily. After 3 days I could tell it was working, after 10 days it was fully recovered. If nothing else, I'm convinced that it is in fact Amoxicillin 500 mg. I would not hesitate to give to my house pets, and in a pinch would take it myself.
Pharm companies are driven by humans biggest weakness. MONEY!!! Does it seem logical to produce the same quality medications that meet regulations and split same produced batch? Non regulated products can put any information on products. As a business owner I know this is not correct. Half of the product for lower return when price is not regulated. Please understand this is not happening. The product either does not meet regulations or produced by company to mark/mislead the consumer. I would consider taking if my back was against the wall. Many comments state it helped them. Are we so blinded that we never consider not everything on the web is fact? Not saying this blog has paid bloggers or that they are not true. FACT: Producer is not splitting a perfect batch for a loss in profits. They are driven by greed to mark up high enough where most can not afford without insurance. Go to the government website & educate yourself. My comment is just food for thought.
Bring me facts for knowledge. Internet bullies that surf just to judge others while hiding behind a monitor are not welcome.
AA 825 is 100% pure Amoxicillin. Made by Virtus Pharmaceuticals LLC. It is no different than what you would get at a pharmacy for a abscess or other infection. Any idiots on here stating that its for animals only and has fillers are lying to you.
The medical industry do not want people to have their own choices and power over their health. Hence you need a prescription, costly doctor or dental visit, and then trip to a pharmacist to get the EXACT drug you can buy online for less than $50 for the same thing.
Everyone should have one bottle of this in the house. It may save your life, or at the least, lots of pain, suffering and expense.
This is not up for debate. Its pure truth.
Educated humans can pump their own gas, do their own taxes, and diagnose simple infections and treat them with NO need for expensive professionals fleecing them at every turn.
I don't know what every one else said I didn't bother reading it all sorry. I'm guessing alot of "it's for animals you'll die or get sick of you use it!" type answers. I'm online looking up a second bottle to keep as back up if I need it. All I know is I had a baaaaad absessed tooth a few months back, and I didn't have the money to buy any expensive pack of 12 antibiotics I was given by my dr. so I bought fishmox forte 500mg 100 pills in a bottle by Thomas labs. I used it for five days and It cured the infection enough in 2 days that I could eat solid food again, stop poisoning myself by popping 100 Tylenol to get 10 mins of peace, and I wasn't sitting up all night crying. 3DAYS... and I could go see my dentist to have it fixed. Sorry if that upsets some people but it worked for me. When your backs against a wall and you have 20$ to your name you do what you got to do to not be in pain.
not everyone can afford these ridiculous prices they have on medicines these days. I'm a mommy of 5 and I had to do what was cheapest for my situation. I wldn't suggest you use it if you have any she'll fish or seafood allergies though. Any hardcore prepper will tell you they're the same basic thing. Chewy.com sells em cheap.
I called the poison control center directly and they said that they're exactly the same, Just saying!
This answer should calm the frayed ('fraid) nerves of anyone who doesn't get it. Our drugs are so controlled in favor of the drug companies, I have used this drug for many, many years for family, friends etc and never have had any kind of adverse reaction. Don't let them scare you away from this kind of savings. However, the rampant use of ANY drug is ill advised. I always look it up to see if it well be effective in current situation and use it without reservation.
I have used fish antibiotics and yes regardless of the warning of not for human consumption, they are exactly what they give humans. Basically what you get are the left overs from what was used to make human antibiotics (the scrappings). As long as you can live with that. There's no harmful effects or risks other then you having an allergic reaction to that particular type of antibiotic.
Yes the same facility's that make the antibiotics literally split the same batch sends some to the fish meds and the others to hospitals... It is literally the same Grade made pills. They put the warning on the fish label cause they don't want humans to take them, instead go to the doctor so they can make more money rather then a cheap alternative. Also by law rather its true or not they have to state not for human consumption on any animal Med. Even if it is literally the exact same and produced from the exact manufacture, same batches that are being sold to hospitals for humans.
Last year (different occasions) my fish developed a bad toothache and later, bronchitis going into pneumonia. I fed my fish fishmox 500mg 2x per day until it could see its doctor. Worked wonders. If your fish is going to take this make sure it completes a full cycle 5+ days.
Well here is some food for thought . . . . my dog is a mess during storms, loud noises, you name it. So I take my dog to the vet and they say it is an anxiety disorder. He gives me a prescription 121.00 for 60 days. On the bottle it says for anxiety as needed and under all the instructions it says "not for human consumption". So I look up the name and I am assuming I'm going to a vet website but no first entry is "drugs.com" it is the generic for xanax. The pills are the exact same thing, look the same, same dosage for human. I look up what a prescription would cost - same dose, same pill count $67.13 was the average. So I know it has nothing to do with grades or standards . . . . it's money. That is the bottom line.
I use this when I need to. It is the SAME EXACT PILL from the pharmacy
