PATIENT INFORMATION

Patients should be counseled that antibacterial drugs including Neomycin Sulfate Oral Solution should only be used to treat bacterial infections. They do not treat viral infections (e.g., the common cold). When Neomycin Sulfate Oral Solution is prescribed to treat a bacterial infection, patients should be told that although it is common to feel better early in the course of therapy, the medication should be taken exactly as directed. Skipping doses or not completing the full course of therapy may (1) decrease the effectiveness of the immediate treatment and (2) increase the likelihood that bacteria will develop resistance and will not be treatable by Neomycin Sulfate Oral Solution or other antibacterial drugs in the future.

Before administering the drug, patients or members of their families should be informed of possible toxic effects of the eighth nerve. The possibility of acute toxicity increases in premature infants and neonates.
