Expert advice for Genta Injection

It is given as a drip (intravenous infusion), as an injection directly into a vein or into a muscle; or as an ear or eye drops. Do not drive immediately after using gentamicin eyedrops because gentamicin in the eye may cause temporary  blurring of vision.

Consult your doctor for monitoring  Kidney function and drug levels in the blood  during treatment. Consult your doctor, if you experience hearing loss, dizziness, numbness, skin tingling, muscle twitching, or seizures which may be signs of nerve damage. Do not start or continue the gentamicin and consult your doctor:
  • If you have inflammation of the middle ear (otitis media), kidney or liver problem, open wound or damaged skin.
  • If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant or breastfeeding.
