Introduction

Acnesol CL Gel is an antibiotic used to treat various types of infections. It is effective in most infections of the respiratory tract, ear, nose, throat, lungs and skin. It is also effective against a bacteria known as H. pylori, which is associated with peptic ulcer disease.

Acnesol CL Gel is also effective against some infections (e.g., MAC or Mycobacterium avium complex) seen in people with reduced immunity.

No antacids should be taken 2 hours before or after taking this medicine. It should be used regularly at evenly spaced time intervals as prescribed by your doctor. Do not skip any doses and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. Stopping the medicine too early may lead to the infection returning or worsening.

Inform your doctor if you have any previous history of allergy or heart problems before taking this medicine. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before using this medicine. Commonly seen side effects seen with this medicine include diarrhea, nausea, pain in the abdomen and vomiting. These are usually temporary and subside with the completion of treatment. Consult your doctor if you find these side effects bother or worry you.
