Terramycin Overview

Oxytetracycline was the second of the broad-spectrum tetracycline group of antibiotics to be discovered. Oxytetracycline works by interfering with the ability of bacteria to produce essential proteins. Without these proteins, the bacteria cannot grow, multiply and increase in numbers. Oxytetracycline therefore stops the spread of the infection and the remaining bacteria are killed by the immune system or eventually die. Oxytetracycline is a broad-spectrum antibiotic, active against a wide v...

Terramycin

I have had a pink/red eye for 3 weeks now. My doctor prescribed erythromycin ophth ointment, tobramycin drops and it does not help. Should I try Terramycin? I am allergic to Bactrim which contains sulfate. Does Terramycin contain sulfate? ## Hello, Christy! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. How long have you been using the ointment and drops? They will take time to clear it up and won't work immediately. No, Terramycin is not a sulfa drug, but you shouldn't use it, unless your doctor approves as it may not be appropriate to treat the type of infection you have. Typical side effects to these topical products may include eye redness, irritation and skin rash. ## I have an inflamed red eyelid. May I use Terramycin ointment? If so, where can I find...

What is terramicina used for?

Can I use Terramicina 125mg to treat throat infection? And if I can, how often can I take each pill? I would really appreciate it if someone responded. ## Hello, Ray! How are you? This is an antibiotic, so it can treat various types of infections, however, since it's unavailable in the U.S., I haven't been able to find the dosing information. Additionally, you need to have the presence of an infection confirmed, because taking it if you don't have one creates the risk of your developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My 2-year-old daughter has a diaper rash...every time she walks she cries...I try diaper rash creams and it doesn't go away. Can I use...

what is terramicina used for the eyes

In the corner of my eyes is sore with redness ## @gonzo, Terramicina or "Terramycin" in english terms is an antibiotic marketed in several forms, including an ophthalmic ointment for treating eye infections specifically in animals such as horses, cattle, cats, dogs, etc... Every article of information I'm finding on the ophthalmic ointment points back to its veterinary applications, but nothing concerning human use. So with that said, I think it may be best to double check with your doctor before attempting to use it on yourself. Chances are that it might be just fine, but these days it's worth getting a professional opinion as well. Active Ingredient: Oxytetracycline Terramicina Origin: Mexico Indications: A broad spectrum antibiotic used to treat a wide variety of bact...

terramicina for eye infection

Where can I fill a prescription for terramicina in the l.a area? ## Hi Miguel, Just for your own information, Terramicina isn't available here in the US. Terramicina is actually a Mexican version of Terramycin (oxytetracycline hydrochloride). However, Terramycin is reportedly available with a doctor's prescription. So I don't know if you'd have to get a new prescription with an American drug name on it in order to have your Rx filled, but that may be a possibility and something to just keep in mind if you run into any issues. Nevertheless, it sounds to me like your best bet would be to contact a local pharmacy there in LA for more specific details regarding its availability. I hope this helps!

Terramycin - teeth staining

Has anyone found a cure/answer/method to correct severe yellow teeth staining from taking Terramycin as a young child? Dental bleaching hasn't really worked too well.

I purchased this in Mexico as an antibiotic, 125 mg, for tooth abscess ## The english translation for this medication name is Terramycin, and the ingredients which you listed above translate to Oxytetracycline - Polymyxin B.
