The main ingredient in Panmycin is tetracycline hydrochloride. This medication belongs to a class of drugs that are known as tetracycline antibiotics.
Panmycin is used to treat the presence of specific bacterial infections that may manifest within the body. These include, but are not restricted to, acne, certain sexually transmitted diseases, bladder infections, and respiratory infections. Panmycin prevents the bacteria from being able to grow and spread throughout the body. Panmycin does this by disrupting the function of a particular protein in the bacteria. The bacteria requires the protein in order to properly complete reproduction of the cells. When these proteins cannot be adequately produced, the infection is unable to extend throughout the body. This is when the body’s immune system takes over and kills the remaining bacteria in the body.
Panmycin cannot be used against viral infections. This means that it cannot be effectively utilized to cure the flu or common cold. Panmycin should be used in limited amounts.
Panmycin should be taken in extremely specific amounts that have been provided by a clinician. Deterring from this indicated amount may result in hazardous consequences.
Panmycin is available in tablet form and should be swallowed. It is best to take Panmycin at least an hour before you eat or two hours after a meal.
Adults should take Panmycin in amounts of 500mg. This amount is taken twice a day.
Panmycin is usually not taken for a period longer than two weeks. Taking Panmycin for an extended period of time may result in reduced effectiveness.
Panmycin should only be taken one dose at a time. It is unwise to consume two doses of Panmycin at one time.
If you have ingested a greater amount of Panmycin than you have intended, you should consult a clinician.
There are several adverse responses that can occur when you take Panmycin. Here is a list of these negative effects:
Skin may become very sensitive to sunlight or UV light
Cramping of the abdominal area
Burning sensation in the stomach
Itching in the region of the extremities
Soreness of the oral cavity or the tongue
Decrease in appetite
Changes in vision
Yellow tinge to the skin
You should speak to a clinician if you notice any of these indications.
Mothers who are pregnant should refrain from taking Panmycin. Panmycin can be transmitted to your unborn child.
It may result in certain physical or developmental problems later on in life.
Panmycin can also be transferred via breast milk. Women should not breast feed their babies while they are taking Panmycin.
You should not take Panmycin if you are allergic to tetracycline antibiotics.
Due to increased sensitivity, you should not go out in the sun or be near artificial UV light while consuming Panmycin.
You should limit or stop consuming dairy during the period that you are taking Panmycin. The dairy products can reduce the amount of Panmycin being absorbed by your body.
You should not take any vitamins, supplements, or any other additions to your diet at least two hours prior to or after you take Panmycin. These substances can diminish the effect of Panmycin.
