I took 'Leon 500 mg' for 7 days, still I have blocked ears with occasional sharp pain in the ear and occasional cough. Any remedy?
Are you sure you did not mean LUPIN 500
Pill imprint LUPIN 500 has been identified as Cefprozil 500 mg.
Cefprozil is used in the treatment of sinusitis; bladder infection; upper respiratory tract infection; kidney infections; otitis media (and more), and belongs to the drug class second generation cephalosporins. There is no proven risk in humans during pregnancy.
This would make more sense. My allergisy doctor always says it takes 2 full doses of the normal prescribtion for a bad sinus infection. Might want to call or go see him or her again.sounds like you also have ear infections along with it. Good luck, I know how miserable you feel. Mary632998
Leon 500 is known generically in the US as Levofloxacin . It belongs to a group of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones. Levofloxacin is used to treat bacterial infections.
Was a bacterial infection confirmed/diagnosed - were swabs taken?
If not, you may have a viral respiratory infection in which case the antibiotics would be ineffective.
Talk to your pharmacist - a decongestant nasal spray and/or a decongestant tablet should help to unblock the ears. Acetaminophen may help the ear pain and a cough suppressant could ease your cough.
