How To Use
  • This medication is best taken on an empty stomach.
  • It may be taken with food or milk if stomach upset occurs, however, this will reduce blood drug levels.
  • Take each dose with a full glass of water or fluid.
  • The medication must be swallowed whole to prevent stomach upset.
  • Antibiotics work best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level.
  • Do this by taking the medication at evenly spaced intervals throughout the day and night.
  • Continue to take this medication until the full prescribed amount is finished even if symptoms disappear after a few days.
  • Stopping the medication too early may allow bacteria to continue to grow resulting in a relapse of the infection.

Side Effects
  • May cause stomach upset, diarrhea, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting and stomach cramps the first few days as your body adjusts to the medication.
  • If these symptoms persist or become severe, inform your doctor.
  • Notify your doctor if you develop symptoms of jaundice such as dark urine, clay-colored stools or yellowing of eyes or skin.
  • In the unlikely event you have an allergic reaction to this drug, seek medical attention immediately.
  • Symptoms of an allergic reaction include rash, itching, swelling, dizziness or trouble breathing.
  • Use of this medication for prolonged or repeated periods may result in a secondary infection (e.g., oral, bladder or vaginal yeast infection) If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

  • Tell your doctor your medical history, especially of liver disease/jaundice, and of any allergies you may have.
  • Caution is advised when this drug is used in infants.
  • Though very unlikely to happen, a stomach problem called IHPS has been noted.
  • Contact your child's doctor immediately if the child has persistent vomiting or increased irritability.
  • This drug should be used only if clearly needed during pregnancy.
  • Small amounts of drug do appear in breast milk, so consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

Missed Dose
  • If you should miss a dose, take it as soon as remembered unless it is almost time for the next dose.
  • If it is nearly time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule.
  • Do not "double-up" the dose.

Drug Interactions
