The doctor will determine the dose that you should take and they will make their decision based in a number of issues. The first one will be the condition that is being treated and another will be any other condition you have and medication that you are taking for them.
Normally the dose is taken twice daily. It often recommended to take the tablets with food to minimize stomach upset. As often advised the complete course of the antibiotic should be finished to ensure the infection is resolved and that resistance in the future does not take place.
There is the risk that there will be side effects when you take this antibiotic and some of them may require you to see the doctor if they seem to be getting worse or even not starting to clear up. The things to look out for will be:
- Changes of taste
It is best to take the tablet when you are supposed to as missing doses will lessen the effect of the medication. If you have diarrhea or any other intestinal problem then you may find a tablet has passed through the system and is in your stool. Again, this is something that the doctor needs to know about.
Other issues to inform the doctor about are:
- Blurred vision
- hearing loss
- Slurred speech
- Dark urine
Your doctor or pharmacist needs to know if you have used this drug and were allergic to it or one of the ingredients. They also need to know about your medical past and if you have any other allergies that may be being treated. The important medical history that the doctor needs to know about are:
- Liver disease
- Kidney disease
- Heart disease – coronary artery disease or heart attack including a family history of the condition
- Irregular heartbeat
- Myasthenia gravis or any other muscle diseases
- Dizziness and the feeling that you may faint
If you are going to undergo surgery then the surgeon needs to know about the drugs you are taking. The older you are the more of a risk there is that you will suffer side effects and this will be particularly with regard to hearing difficulties and heartbeat irregularities.
If you are pregnant the doctor will decide whether it is more beneficial for you to take the medication rather than be concerned about the baby so it is likely that it will only be prescribed when there is no other option. It is known that this medication passes into breast milk so discuss breastfeeding with your doctor.
