Questions Related to Xylistin

Hi Doctor, I underwent a foot bone debridement, due to diabetic foot infection. Doctor has asked us to administer INJ COLISTIN- 3 million units - Intravenous Twice a Day in 100 ML Normal Saline. It has to be given twice daily for 2 weeks. My Question is - For Inj Colistin I purchased Coly Monas 3MIL at the cost of RS 2579/- The price is very steep , so I wanted to know if I can purchase MYXITIN 3MIU INJECTION or NEOLISTIM 3 MIU INJECTION IS it ok to buy the substitute injections with the same salt ?
