FAQs

Q. What if I cannot tolerate Ertamac?

It is common to have minor side effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and headache but generally these settle down. If these symptoms trouble you, contact your doctor immediately. Your doctor may prescribe an alternative medicine to help you get rid of these symptoms. Serious side effects occur in very rare cases. You should immediately seek medical advice.

Q. What is drug resistance? Is it possible to develop resistance to Ertamac?

Sometimes it happens that the bacteria gets modified in your body and stops reacting to the medicine. As a result, the medicine stops working. This is called drug resistance. Resistance to Ertamac is very rare, at least for the bacteria against which it works.

Q. Does Ertamac have any effect on blood sugar levels if taken to treat infections of diabetic foot?

Rare reports suggest that Ertamac may decrease the blood sugar levels, but this medicine does not affect the blood sugar levels in everyone. Hence, it is important to keep monitoring your blood sugar levels regularly.

Q. Is Ertamac safe to be used in children?

Safety of Ertamac in children less than 3 months of age has not yet been assessed. However, the side effects and effectivity of Ertamac in children beyond the age of 3 months is almost similar when compared with adults.
