Teicogress 200mg Injection


Overview

Introduction

Teicogress 200mg Injection is an antibiotic used in the treatment of severe bacterial infections in hospitalized patients. It is effective against infections of the respiratory tract (eg. pneumonia), urinary tract, skin and soft tissues, bones and joints, heart, blood and others.

Teicogress 200mg Injection works by stopping the growth of bacteria and is useful for treating adults as well as children. It is a narrow-spectrum antibiotic that only covers the gram-positive type of bacteria. This medicine is given by drip or by direct injection into a vein, under the supervision of a healthcare professional. It may also be combined with other antibiotics to treat additional types of bacteria.

Some people may develop local injection site reactions like pain, swelling, redness. However, this is usually minor and temporary. Other side effects like fever, itching and skin rash may be seen occasionally. Monitoring with regular kidney function tests may be needed while you are being treated with this medication. Inform your doctor if you have a history of an allergic reaction to this medication in the past. Use caution while driving or doing anything that requires concentration as it may cause dizziness and headaches. Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding before taking this medicine.
