How do I take/use this medicine?

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

Take Tetracycline 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.

Tetracycline is best taken on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal. You may take it after meals if you experience any stomach discomfort. Take Tetracycline 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.

If you have been given the syrup, shake it well before use to ensure that the syrup is evenly mixed. Use the measuring spoon or cup provided to measure your dose.

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 Tetracycline 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 other similar antibiotics such as doxycycline, lymecycline, minocycline or oxytetracycline.

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

Do not give Tetracycline to children unless specifically directed by the child's doctor.

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

Avoid alcohol.

Tetracycline should not be taken with dairy products such as milk, cheese, yoghurt or ice-cream as these could reduce the effectiveness of Tetracycline. Take Tetracycline at least 2 hours before or after you have taken any dairy products.

Why do I need this medicine?

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

Tetracycline may also be used together with other medicines for gastric ulcers caused by a type of bacteria known as Helicobacter pylori.

What side effects could I experience?

Tetracycline 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.

Tetracycline 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.

Tetracycline may cause other side effects. Consult your doctor if you have unusual problems while taking this medicine.

How should I store this medicine?

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

The syrup can be stored at room temperature of up to 30°C. Do not freeze it otherwise it will become less effective.

Medicines must not be used past the expiry date.

Can I take/use this with other medicines?

Do not take Tetracycline together with antacids, multivitamins, calcium pills, iron pills or laxatives containing magnesium. These could reduce the effectiveness of Tetracycline. If you must take these medicines, take them at least 2 hours before or after Tetracycline.

Alert your doctor if you are taking any of the following medicines:

- penicillin antibiotics such as amoxicillin
- isotretinoin, acitretin (medicines for treating acne)
- atovaquone (a medicine for malaria)
- rifampicin (a TB medicine)

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

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