Uses
Ala-Tet is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. It is also used to treat acne and to prevent traveler s diarrhea .


Storage
  • Store at room temperature away from moisture and sunlight.
  • Do not freeze liquid forms.
  • Do not store in the bathroom.
  • Discard any unused drug.
  • Check Ala-Tet s expiration date.
  • Taking outdated tetracycline (or a related drug) can result in serious illness.


Overdose
  • If overdose is suspected, contact your local poison control center or emergency room immediately.

How To Use
  • Ala-Tet 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 Ala-Tet.
  • May take with food if stomach upset occurs unless your doctor directs you otherwise.
  • Take Ala-Tet 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 Ala-Tet 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
  • Ala-Tet 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 Ala-Tet for prolonged or repeated periods may result in a secondary infection (e.g., oral, bladder or vaginal yeast infection) or sore throat while taking Ala-Tet.
  • In the unlikely event you have an allergic reaction to Ala-Tet, seek immediate medical attention.
  • Symptoms of an allergic reaction include: rash, itching, swelling, dizziness, trouble breathing.
