How To Use
  • Achromycin V works best if taken on an empty stomach one hour before or two hours after meals.
  • Take each dose with a full glass (8 oz or 240 ml) of water unless your doctor directs you otherwise.
  • Do not lie down for 30 minutes after taking Achromycin V.
  • May take with food if stomach upset occurs unless your doctor directs you otherwise.
  • Take Achromycin V 2-3 hours before or after taking any products containing magnesium, aluminum, or calcium.
  • Some examples include quinapril, didanosine, vitamins/minerals, and antacids.
  • Dairy products (e.g., milk, yogurt), calcium-enriched juice, sucralfate, bismuth subsalicylate, iron, and zinc are also included.
  • These products bind with tetracycline preventing its full absorption.
  • 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 Achromycin V 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
  • Achromycin V may cause stomach upset, diarrhea, nausea, headache or vomiting.
  • If these symptoms persist or worsen, notify your doctor.
  • Very unlikely, but report promptly: stomach pain, yellowing eyes or skin, vision problems, mental changes.
  • Tetracyclines increase sensitivity to sunlight.
  • Use of Achromycin V for prolonged or repeated periods may result in a secondary infection (e.g., oral, bladder or vaginal yeast infection) or sore throat while taking Achromycin V.
  • In the unlikely event you have an allergic reaction to Achromycin V, seek immediate medical attention.
  • Symptoms of an allergic reaction include: rash, itching, swelling, dizziness, trouble breathing.
  • If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

  • Tell your doctor your medical history, especially of: kidney or liver problems, any allergies, trouble swallowing, esophagus problems (e.g., hiatal hernia, GERD).
  • Achromycin V may make you more prone to sunburn.
  • Wear protective clothing and a sunscreen if needed.
  • Achromycin V should not be used by children up to 8 years of age because its use may permanently discolor their teeth or cause other problems.
  • Caution is advised in older children also.
  • Achromycin V is not recommended for use during pregnancy.
  • Consult your doctor before using Achromycin V.
  • Achromycin V is excreted into breast milk and has been shown to have undesirable effects on nursing infants.
  • Therefore, its use is not recommended while breast-feeding.
  • Consult your doctor before you breast-feed.

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
  • Inform your doctor or pharmacist about all the medicines you may use (prescription and nonprescription), especially: vitamins/minerals (e.g., magnesium, aluminum, calcium, iron, zinc), quinapril, didanosine, antacids, sucralfate, bismuth subsalicylate, digoxin, penicillin-related drugs, live vaccines, cimetidine, warfarin, methoxyflurane.
