What do the chemical structures of carbohydrates and fats have in common and how do they differ?
Asked in Medication and Drugs, Chemistry, Antibiotics
Do antibiotics have any chemical substances?
Why are antibiotics not helpful for treating a common cold?
Why do different elements have different chemical properties?
Different elements have different chemical properties because they have different atomic structures and characteristics. Different chemical elements have different atomic structures, and particularly different electron shell structures. Chemical bonding is generally based on electron structures of atoms, and as these structures vary (or are similar) so the chemical properties vary (or are similar).
Asked in Antibiotics
What active ingredients do all antibiotics have in common?
Asked in Medication and Drugs, Antibiotics, Penicillin
Why is Clindamycin ok for me to take if l'm allergic to penicillin?
It is safe to use in a penicillin allergy because the two drugs are not in the same family. They are both antibiotics but have little else in common. They do not share similar chemical structures or mechanisms of action. Clindamycin is a macrolide antibiotic whereas penicillin is a beta lactam antibiotic.
