What happens if I miss a dose (Lincocin)?
Since lincomycin is usually given by a healthcare professional, it is not likely that you will miss a dose. If you are using lincomycin at home, call your doctor for instructions if you miss a dose.
What happens if I overdose (Lincocin)?
Tell your caregivers right away if you think you have received too much of this medicine. Overdose symptoms may include chest pain, feeling light-headed, or fainting.
What should I avoid while receiving lincomycin (Lincocin)?
Antibiotic medicines can cause diarrhea, which may be a sign of a new infection. If you have diarrhea that is watery or has blood in it, call your doctor. Do not use any medicine to stop the diarrhea unless your doctor has told you to.
What other drugs will affect lincomycin (Lincocin)?
Before receiving lincomycin, tell your doctor if you are also using erythromycin (E-Mycin, E.E.S., Ery-Tab, Erythrocin, and others).
There may be other drugs that can interact with lincomycin. Tell your doctor about all your prescription and over-the-counter medications, vitamins, minerals, herbal products, and drugs prescribed by other doctors. Do not start a new medication without telling your doctor.
Where can I get more information?
Your doctor or pharmacist can provide more information about lincomycin.
Remember, keep this and all other medicines out of the reach of children, never share your medicines with others, and use this medication only for the indication prescribed.
