Q. My friend has a history of epilepsy and she was on valproic acid while receiving treatment with Ntgn, still she had an episode of seizure. Why?
Your friend should have communicated to the doctor that she was receiving valproic acid for epilepsy. Ntgn interferes with the working of valproic acid, making it less effective. It is because of this that she had an episode of seizure. Generally, in cases like these, the doctor prescribes a different medicine.

The length of the treatment will be decided by your doctor, depending on your general health, the type of infection you have and how well you respond to Ntgn.

The doctor will give you an alternative medicine. Serious side effects are very rare. In case you develop serious side effects, seek immediate medical advice.
Q. Does it matter if I miss or stop Ntgn?
It is important that you do not stop the treatment without consulting your doctor. Stopping the treatment may bring back the infection or you may develop resistance to Ntgn. The same applies if you are forgetful in taking the suggested doses. It is recommended that you do not miss doses. If you do, take the missed dose as soon as you can and take the next dose as planned so that you stick to the same overall daily dose.
Q. Even though Ntgn is used for skin infections, can it cause any skin-related problems?
Serious skin reactions are rare, but these have been reported with the use of Ntgn. Inform your doctor before starting Ntgn if you are allergic to a medicine or any antibiotic.
