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

      I wanted to capture the beauty of the pigma micron caps so I bunched them up with my daughters blue hair tie photographed them on a wooden fence using my iPhone3. Thanks Ben Great work!!!

      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.
