Klear Dry Syrup

Prescription Required

Your child’s medicine at a glance

Klear Dry Syrup is an antibiotic medication. It is given to children to treat a wide range of bacterial infections targeting the ear, throat, teeth, lungs, heart, skin, and gastrointestinal tract. It also helps treat bacterial infections that can occur in children with HIV due to their weak immune systems.

Klear Dry Syrup is also effective against some infections (e.g., MAC or Mycobacterium avium complex) seen in people with reduced immunity. It stops the bacteria from growing, which helps to resolve your symptoms and cure your infection. This medicine is taken orally, preferably either one hour before or 2 hours after a meal. No antacids should be taken within 2 hours of taking this medicine. 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.

Common side effects with this medicine include diarrhea, nausea, abnormal taste, indigestion, abdominal pain, headache, vomiting, and rash. These are usually temporary and subside with the completion of treatment. Consult your doctor if you find these side effects do not resolve or persist for a longer duration.

Inform your doctor if you have any previous history of allergy or heart problems before taking this medicine. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before using this medicine.

  • Encourage your child to drink plenty of water in case diarrhea develops as a side effect.

FAQs

Q. In what dose should I give Klear Dry Syrup to my child?

The dose of Klear Dry Syrup will be prescribed depending upon the kind of infection, its severity, and your child’s age and body weight. Hence, altering it by yourself may cause side effects or make Klear Dry Syrup ineffective. In fact, if you give the medicine in the prescribed dose, time, and way, your child may start showing improvement after a few regular doses. But, make sure to complete the full course without stopping the medicine abruptly as doing so may make your child sick again. Also, the remaining bacteria might become resistant to the Klear Dry Syrup. Thus, following the prescribed treatment course is important and stressed upon for every medicine.

Q. What if I give an overdose of Klear Dry Syrup by mistake?

Klear Dry Syrup is unlikely to cause any harm if an extra dose is given by mistake. But, it is important to be careful because overdose may cause unwanted side effects and may even worsen your child’s condition. So, if you think you have given too much of Klear Dry Syrup to your child, it will be wise to speak to a doctor immediately.

Q. Are there any possible serious side effects of Klear Dry Syrup?

Some serious side effects of this medicine include abnormal heart conduction (QT prolongation), allergy, diarrhea, and severe gastrointestinal infections (superinfections). Get in touch with your child’s doctor if he/she develops any of these symptoms.

Q. Can other medicines be given at the same time as Klear Dry Syrup?

Klear Dry Syrup can sometimes interact with other medicines or substances. Tell your doctor about any other medicines your child is taking before starting Klear Dry Syrup. Also, check with your child’s doctor before giving any medicine to your child.

Q. Can I get my child vaccinated while on treatment with Klear Dry Syrup ?

Antibiotics usually do not interfere with the ingredients in vaccines or cause a bad reaction in a child who has just been vaccinated. However, children taking antibiotics should not get vaccinated until they recover from the illness. As soon as your child feels better, the vaccine can be given.

Q. Which all lab tests should my child undergo while taking Klear Dry Syrup on a long term basis?

The doctor may prescribe getting kidney function tests, liver function tests, and baseline ECG on a periodic basis to keep a check on your child’s condition.

Q. Can Klear Dry Syrup affect my child’s digestion?

Since children have a sensitive stomach, they may develop a stomach upset while taking medicines. Moreover, taking antibiotics may kill off the good bacteria present in the digestive system along with the bad ones, increasing your child’s risk of developing stomach problems. So, in case your child is having diarrhea while on Klear Dry Syrup, do not stop the medicine course. Instead, call your child’s doctor to ask about the next steps. In some cases, the doctor may alter the dose.

Q. My child is suffering from a muscle weakness disorder. Is it safe to give Klear Dry Syrup?

Use Klear Dry Syrup with caution in children with neuromuscular disorders like Myasthenia gravis as it may cause exacerbation of symptoms and even onset of some new symptoms.

Q. How can the bacteria develop resistance against Klear Dry Syrup?

Using Klear Dry Syrup when your child does not need it will give the bacteria an opportunity to adapt to the medicine and develop ways to escape the medicine’s effects. This will make the medicine ineffective when your child actually needs it. Usually, when this happens, people say that the child has become resistant to the antibiotic, but in reality, it is the opposite. It is actually the bacteria that have become resistant to the treatment.
