How To Use
  • Nafcillin Sodium must be used as directed by your doctor.

  • Antibiotics work best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level.
  • Do this by using the medication at evenly spaced intervals throughout the day and night.
  • Continue to use Nafcillin Sodium 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.

  • Some injectible penicillins contain sodium; this could affect you if you are on a salt-restricted diet or if you have a condition which could be worsened with an increase in salt intake (e.g., congestive heart failure).
  • If this pertains to you, check with your pharmacist to see if your brand contains sodium.
  • If so, contact your doctor for more information.
  • Use of Nafcillin Sodium for prolonged or repeated periods may result in a secondary infection (e.g., oral, bladder or vaginal yeast infection).
