Donated Cedax Pens – Great Pens With NOT so Great Side Effects

Donated Cedax Pens - Great Pens With NOT so Great Side Effects

Got these Cedax (Ceftibuten) pens in the other day all the way from Windsor Ca from my pen pall Nancy. V. a mere ten miles away from my PO Box. I have a bunch of medical pens on the Mercedes Pens but I have never featured any of them on the pen guy blog, so decided to investigate. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine Cedax (Ceftibuten) is a cephalosporin antibiotic used to treat certain infections caused by bacteria such as bronchitis and ear and throat infections. Antibiotics will not work for colds, flu, or other viral infections, bla bla bla. The decision NOT to ask my doctor about Cedax is based on the 13 not so pleasant side effects listed bellow at the end of the article, which are:

    • upset stomach
    • diarrhea
    • vomiting
    • mild skin rash
    • severe skin rash
    • itching
    • hives
    • difficulty breathing or swallowing
    • wheezing
    • unusual bleeding or bruising
    • sore throat
    • painful mouth or throat sores
    • vaginal infection

      Alex Kahl is a self professed auto-geek who is obsessed with cars, technology and the web. This obsession somehow led to the sweetest gig of all, test driving and writing about cars and getting paid for it. A few months ago he was in the Bay Area driving around in a top of the line Mercedes loaner and contacted me about doing and interview in Petaluma CA at TwiT TV. He writes for Mercedes-Benz and this video was just posted a few days ago on Mercedes-Benz Reporter . Its actually one of the very few videos showing the latest addition to the Mercedes pens Art Car including the drain pipe super fins and the additional used pens mounted on the roof of the car. Thanks Alex:)

      Used pens from Singapore Reunited with the Pen Guy

      This beautifully wrapped box of used pens came this week from Joanna C. all the way from Singapore and I took multiple pictures wanting to savor the moment. These used pens came wrapped in brown paper which I carefully removed to reveal the Black & Decker automatic dry iron box. Once I had this box opened I spilled the used pens on the ground to behold the treasure within. It was a windy fall day and a few dry redwood leaves were included in the final shot. Is it possible I could end up writing a novel about pens??? Who knows, but in any case I a big thanks goes out to my new friend in Joanna. Costas Schuler aka The Pen Guy has a real job as a graphic designer in Sonoma County and can be reached by email.

      Pen Explosion at The Pen Guys House – Nobody Hurt

      Pen Explosion at The Pens Guys House - Nobody Hurt

      I woke up this morning to find my pen storage bin with its door blown off its hinges and pens spilling all over the place. This bin was given to me with a broken hinge and it simply could not take the pressure of about 30K pens pushing up against it.

      I had a sinking suspicion that levy was about to burst but ignored the voice telling me to wrap it up with some rope rope.
      This afternoon I took care of it with a little duct and rope and I am ready again to receive your packages of empty pens in the mail.

      Is there such a thing as too many used pens…NO. Keep them coming and thank you all for your support.
