Critimycin 2MIU Injection


Overview

Introduction of Critimycin Injection

Critimycin 2MIU Injection is an antibiotic that fights bacteria. It is used to treat severe infections of the lungs, stomach, urinary tract, blood and others. It works by killing the bacteria that cause these problems. It is commonly used to treat critically ill patients admitted to the hospital.

Critimycin 2MIU Injection is given by drip or by direct injection into a vein, under the supervision of a healthcare professional. The dose depends on what type of infection you have, where it is in the body and how serious it is. You should have your injections at the same time each day to get the most benefit and you should keep on taking this medicine for as long as you are prescribed it, even if your symptoms quickly improve. If you stop taking it too early the infection may return or worsen.

Some people may develop side effects like kidney damage, neurotoxicity, or local redness and swelling at the site of injection. These side effects are usually temporary and go away during treatment as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if these side effects bother you or will not go away.

Before starting treatment with this medicine, you should tell your doctor if you are allergic to any antibiotic or have any liver or kidney problems. Pregnant or breastfeeding mothers should consult their doctor before using it. Your doctor may get regular blood tests done to monitor kidney function and the level of the medicine in your blood.
