Minomycin is a medication that belongs to the class of drugs called tetracycline antibiotics. It works by fighting harmful bacteria in the human body. Doctors prescribe this drug to treat a range of bacterial infections, including severe acne, chlamydia, gonorrhea, skin infections, etc.
Recommendations for Use
Take Minomycin with enough water, with or without food. This medicine should be taken for a full prescribed period of time even if your symptoms improve. If you skip regular doses, your risk of future infections resistant to antibiotics will only increase. This drug isn't intended to be used to treat any viral infections. If you take Minomycin for a long time, you require regular medical tests. It may rarely cause unusual results of some lab tests.
Contraindications and Precautions
This medication can reduce the effectiveness of birth control pills, so use other non-hormone methods while undergoing this treatment. It passes into breast milk and may affect tooth and bone development of nursing babies. Minomycin shouldn't be taken by children who are less than 8 years old because of a possible risk of permanent graying or yellowing of their teeth. Pregnant women aren't allowed to take this medicine because it may cause harm to unborn babies.
Don't start this treatment if you have any allergic reactions. To ensure that it's safe for you, inform doctors about other medical conditions you have, including kidney and liver problems, sulfite allergies, and asthma. The use of Minomycin may impair your normal reactions and thinking, so be careful when driving or doing other things that require full alertness. Antibiotics may cause diarrhea, which can be a sign of new infections. If it's bloody or watery, call your physician. Avoid any exposure to tanning beds or sunlight because Minomycin can increase the risk of sunburns. Use effective sunscreen and wear special protective clothes outdoors.
Don't take multivitamins, iron, magnesium and calcium supplements, antacids, and laxatives 2 hours after and before taking Minomycin because they make it less effective. Drug interactions increase possible side effects and affect the way meds work in the body. To avoid them, inform doctors about any other drugs that you're taking, especially if their list includes any penicillin antibiotics, isotretinoin, blood thinners, and ergot medications.
Like other drugs, Minomycin may cause side effects. However, most of them are mild and happen rarely. If you have any allergic symptoms, including swelling, difficulty breathing, hives, skin reactions, sore throat, fever, skin pain, red and purple rash, burning in eyes, and others, get emergency medical help. Stop taking Minomycin and call your physician if you have any severe side effects, such as kidney issues, swelling in ankles and feed, little or no urination, shortness of breath, and unusual tiredness. Go to the hospital if you develop any signs of pancreas or liver problems, including upper stomach pain, loss of appetite, vomiting, nausea, easy bleeding and bruising, jaundice, and dark urine.
