Description of Lincocin
Lincocin has Lincomycin as its active ingredient, and it belongs to the therapeutic class of antibacterial medicines. The drug is given to the patient in the form of an injection intramuscularly or as a needle intravenously. Each 2ml vial of Lincocin contains 600mg Lincomycin. Apart from this, it also contains water for injection and benzyl alcohol.
Indications & Dosage of Lincocin
Being an antibiotic, Lincocin is used for treating bacterial infections in different parts of the body, including the ear, lung, throat, skin, bone, joints and blood. It works by fighting the bacteria responsible for the infection.
For serious infections, adults are given Lincocin 600mg per day intramuscularly. More severe infections can be treated with Lincocin 600mg two times a day. For serious infections, pediatric patients over one month of age are given Lincocin 10mg per kg per day. For more severe infections, they will be given Lincocin 10mg per kg two times a day. If you are receiving the medicine intravenously, you will receive Lincocin 600mg every 8 to 12 hours for severe infections. The dosage of Lincocin may increase with the severity of your disease.
Side Effects & Interactions of Lincocin
Mild skin rash or itching, vomiting, nausea, painful or swollen tongue, vaginal discharge or itching, dizziness, ringing in ears, or spinning sensation can be commonly experienced by Lincocin patients. These side effects are short-lived and settle down on their own as your body adjusts to the drug. However, inform your doctor if any of these become unmanageable with or without medical help. Also seek medical help if you develop any serious side effects of Lincocin. Symptoms of such side effects include:
- Bloody or watery diarrhea
- Decreased or stopped urination
- Severe peeling, blistering or red skin rash
- Fever, body aches, chills, flu symptoms
- Easy bruising or bleeding
- Unusual weakness
- Sores or white patches on the lips or inside the mouth
Symptoms of an allergy include swelling or itching of the face, throat, lips or tongue, hives, severe dizziness or difficulty breathing. Stop taking the medicine if you develop any of these symptoms. Seek medical attention if needed.
Your doctor will not recommend you to buy Lincocin along with erythromycin, as drug interactions are likely to occur. Medicines such as novobiocin, phenytoin and kanamycin are not compatible with Lincomycin. Muscle relaxants and neuromuscular blocking medicines may interfere with the working of Lincocin. Therefore, do not take any of these drugs with Lincocin. Apart from these, inform your doctor about all the other medicines you are using at present, including herbal preparations and health supplements.
Warnings & Precautions of Lincocin
Do not use Lincocin if you have asthma or any other allergy, kidney or liver disease, epilepsy, seizure disorder or an intestinal or stomach disorder such as colitis.
Pregnant women should not use this medicine, as it may the unborn child. Breastfeeding mothers should also not take Lincocin, as it may pass into their breast milk and may cause harm to the nursing infant.
