Embika 500 mg Injection


Overview

Introduction of Embika Injection

Embika 500 mg Injection is an antibiotic used to prevent or treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. This may include infections of the urinary tract, bones and joints, lungs (eg. pneumonia), brain, blood, and some others. It is also used in hospitalized patients to prevent infections.

Embika 500 mg Injection works by stopping the growth of bacteria. It is given as a drip (intravenous infusion) or as an injection directly into a vein or a muscle under the supervision of a healthcare professional. Your doctor may shift you to another antibiotic after culture reports become available. 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.

Nausea, vomiting, and stomach upset may be seen as side effects. Temporary pain, irritation, and redness at the injection site may occur after an injection. Consult your doctor if any of these side effects persist or if your condition does not improve despite treatment.

Rarely, some patients receiving high doses may develop balance disorder (loss of balance), kidney damage and hearing loss. Therefore, please follow all the instructions given by your doctor while using this medicine. Your doctor may also monitor you with regular kidney function tests, hearing tests and urine tests during treatment. This medication is not recommended for use during pregnancy. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant, planning to conceive, or breastfeeding.
