Minomycin Product Description
Minomycin is an antibacterial agent, belonging to the tetracycline group. Minomycin is more active against certain types of bacteria, such as microorganisms, belonging to the Nocardia genus. Therefore, this drug is commonly prescribed as an alternative to other antibiotics of the tetracycline group.
Minomycin is prescribed for elimination of all bacteria types, sensitive to tetracycline, and is also used to control respiratory tract infections (RTIs), different types and stages of acne, gonorrhoea, nocardiosis (including chronic, acute, or subacute), infections caused by staphylococcal organisms and chemoprevention of meningococcal infections.
A therapeutic dose of Minomycin prevents growth and causes destruction of pathogens. For reaching the highest efficiency of treatment, type of bacteria should be determined before prescribing the dosage and duration of treatment. Infected patients should take 50 to 200 mg of Minomycin every 12 hours. The time interval between Minomycin doses and the total daily dosage varies with the antibacterial response.
If you remembered you had missed a dose of Minomycin, try to use it as soon as possible. Though you should skip the missed Minomycin dose and continue your usual dosing schedule, if it is close to the next scheduled intake of this antibiotic.
Duration of Minomycin treatment is 1 to 90 days. The effectiveness of the antibiotic therapy increases, if you take a double dose of Minomycin for the first and only time (followed by the usual dose every 12 hours).
The antibiotic Minomycin should be stored at controlled room temperature between 20°C and 25°C, in a dry warm place out of reach of children.
