Seek emergency medical attention or call the Poison Help line at 1-800-222-1222.
What should I avoid while taking Pylera (Pylera Capsules)?
Antibiotic medicines can cause diarrhea, which may be a sign of a new infection. If you have diarrhea that is watery or bloody, stop taking Pylera and call your doctor. Do not use anti-diarrhea medicine unless your doctor tells you to.
Do not drink alcohol while you are taking Pylera and for at least 1 day after you stop taking it. Drinking alcohol while taking Pylera may cause nausea, vomiting, headache, or flushing (warmth, redness, tingly feeling).
Check the labels of any medicines or food products you use to make sure they do not contain alcohol.
Avoid taking Pylera with milk or other dairy products. Also avoid taking the medicine at the same time you take any multivitamins, mineral supplements, or antacids. These products can make it harder for your body to absorb the medicine.
Avoid exposure to sunlight or tanning beds. Pylera can make you sunburn more easily. Wear protective clothing and use sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) when you are outdoors.
