How do I take/use this medicine?

Take Oxytetracycline exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not take more or less than instructed by your doctor.

Take Oxytetracycline at regular intervals as instructed. Do not skip any doses. Continue to take it even when you feel better. You must complete the entire course of antibiotic. If you don't, the infection will not clear completely.

Oxytetracycline is best taken on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal. This will help improve the absorption of Oxytetracycline. Take it with a full glass of water, in a sitting or standing position. Do not take it while lying down and do not lie down for at least half an hour after swallowing it.

What should I take note of while using/taking this medicine?

Inform your doctor if you have liver or kidney disease, systemic lupus erythematosus (also known as SLE or lupus), or a muscular disorder called myasthenia gravis.

If you are being treated with Oxytetracycline for STD, you should follow your doctor's advice on ways to prevent passing the disease to others. You should also avoid sexual contact until the doctor certifies that you are cleared of the infection.

When should I not use this medicine?

Alert your doctor if you ever had an allergic reaction (breathlessness, rashes, swollen eyes) to similar antibiotics such as doxycycline, lymecycline, minocycline or tetracycline.

Alert your doctor if you are pregnant or if you become pregnant while being treated with Oxytetracycline. Alert your doctor if you are breastfeeding.

Do not give Oxytetracycline to children unless directed by the doctor.

Are there any restrictions on the type of food I can take?

Avoid alcohol.

Do not take Oxytetracycline with dairy products such as milk, cheese, yoghurt or ice-cream. These could reduce the effectiveness of Oxytetracycline. Take Oxytetracycline at least 2 hours before or after you have taken any dairy products.

Why do I need this medicine?

Oxytetracycline is an antibiotic. It is used to treat certain bacterial infections of the skin, lung, genitals and bladder. It is also used to treat certain infectious diarrhoea and sexually-transmitted diseases (STD).

Oxytetracycline belongs to a group of antibiotics called the tetracyclines.

What side effects could I experience?

Oxytetracycline may cause diarrhoea, nausea and stomach discomfort. These side effects are usually temporary. If you have diarrhoea, drink lots of water to replace the fluids lost. However, if you have severe diarrhoea or diarrhoea with severe stomach cramps or bloody stools, alert your doctor.

If you develop rashes, breathlessness, swollen mouth or eyes, stop the medicine and inform your doctor quickly. These could be signs of an allergic reaction.

Oxytetracycline may also cause your skin to be more sensitive to sunlight. Avoid direct or long hours of exposure to the sun and other forms of ultraviolet (UV) light like tanning beds or sun lamps.

How should I store this medicine?

Store in a cool, dry place away from the reach of children.

Medicines must not be used past the expiry date.

Can I take/use this with other medicines?

Do not take Oxytetracycline together with antacids, multivitamins, calcium pills, iron pills or laxatives that contain magnesium. These could reduce the effectiveness of Oxytetracycline. Take Oxytetracycline at least 2 hours before or after these medicines.

Alert your doctor if you are taking any of these medicines:
- penicillin antibiotics such as amoxicillin
- rifampicin (a TB medicine)

Inform your doctor if you are taking birth control pills. Oxytetracycline may decrease the effectiveness of birth control pills. You may wish to discuss additional birth control methods with your doctor or pharmacist.

Always inform your doctor and pharmacist if you are taking any other medicines, including herbal medicines and medicines that you buy without a prescription.
