Overview

Introduction

Harmless 12.5mg Syrup is an antibiotic that fights bacteria. It is used to treat certain types of serious bacterial infections of the stomach or intestines, which are not responding to other antibiotics. It works by killing the bacteria that cause these problems.

Harmless 12.5mg Syrup may be taken with or without food. The dose depends on what type of infection you have, where it is in the body, and how serious it is. You should take it regularly at evenly spaced intervals as per the schedule prescribed by your doctor. Taking it at the same time every day will help you to remember to take it. Do not stop taking it until you have finished the full course, even if you feel better. If you stop taking it early, the infection may worsen or come back.

Some people may develop side effects like nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Occasionally, kidney damage has been seen in some people. 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.

How to cope with side effects?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Kidney damage
    If you have kidney damage, you will probably know only after a blood or urine test is done. In general, making healthy lifestyle changes and eating a healthy balanced diet can improve the function of your kidneys. Discuss with your doctor what medicines or lifestyle changes might help.
  • Coping with Diarrhea
    Keep up your intake of fluids and electrolytes (sugars and salts) to avoid getting dehydrated. Eat less fiber (avoid raw fruits, fruit juice and vegetables). Talk to your doctor about possible medication to manage diarrhea. Ask about reducing the dosage of your drug or other suitable treatments.
  • Coping with Vomiting
    You can help yourself by eating small, frequent meals rather than large ones and drinking plenty of fluids. Eat slowly. Avoid fatty, fried, spicy and very sweet foods. Eat cold or slightly warm food if the smell of cooked or cooking food makes you feel sick. Get plenty of fresh air. You could also try chewing ginger or drinking ginger tea. Eat bananas to replace potassium in your blood which can drop if you are sick (vomit). Use oral rehydration salts to replace vitamins and minerals lost through being sick. There are some medicines that can help you stop feeling sick. Speak to your doctor if your condition does not improve.
