What is Permapen

BenzylpenicillinThe Generic name of this drug
Treatment SummaryBenzylpenicillin (Penicillin G) is a common antibiotic used to treat infections caused by susceptible bacteria. It is injected into a muscle or vein because it cannot be absorbed through the stomach. Penicillin G is typically used to treat streptococcal infections, staphylococcal infections, and some bacterial infections caused by gram-positive aerobic bacilli. It may also be used to prevent certain bacterial infections in some cases. Penicillin G is not effective against gram-negative bacteria or anaerobic bacteria, and its effectiveness can vary depending on the region.

Effectiveness

How Permapen Affects PatientsPenicillin G is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections caused by certain bacteria. It works by stopping the bacteria from building a protective wall around itself, which eventually kills the bacteria. Penicillin G is effective against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, and is resistant to a variety of beta-lactamases, including penicillinases, cephalosporinases, and extended spectrum beta-lactamases.
How Permapen works in the bodyPenicillin G works by attaching to proteins inside bacteria cells that help build the cell wall. This prevents the bacteria's cell wall from forming properly, leading to its destruction. Penicillin G may also interfere with a tool the bacteria use to stop its own destruction.

When to interrupt dosage

The measure of Permapen is based on the identified disorder, such as rat bite fever, Haverhill fever and Actinomycosis. The dosage is contingent upon the administration approach (e.g. Intramuscular; Intravenous or Injection, suspension) listed in the table below.

I'm a tall man and this treatment worked well for me. The main downside is that I feel like a robot on it-- very confused and out of sorts. This can be really annoying, especially when mixed with things like shorter term memory loss (I once waited in the wrong line at the store for 30 minutes). Overall though, I would recommend it to anyone struggling with anxiety or stress.

Permapen for Anxious
I've been taking this medication for two years now, but I don't take it every day like I'm supposed to.

Definitely not a long-term solution.

I was prescribed this medication for my insomnia and it does help me fall asleep. I wake up feeling groggy but after some tea, I'm doing well. However, about 10 hours later I feel drugged again and have to go back to sleep. So while it does help with falling asleep, it's not very helpful in terms of staying awake and functional during the day.

This medication was very effective at treating my severe anxiety and panic attacks. I felt calm and normal again within 20 minutes of taking it, and slept through the night.

Hydroxyzine helped me feel normal again after just 20 minutes, which I loved. However, I experienced some less-than-ideal side effects the next day that included an elevated heart rate and feeling "out of it." All things considered, this medication is good but not perfect.
