USES: This medication is used to treat certain serious bacterial infections which may be resistant to other antibiotics. Discuss the risks and benefits of treatment with your doctor and if there are alternative medication options. This medication is known as a glycylcycline antibiotic. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria.

HOW TO USE: This medication is given by injection into a vein over 30-60 minutes by a healthcare professional. Doses are usually repeated every 12 hours or as directed by your doctor. The dose and length of treatment depend on your condition and response to therapy.

If you are giving this medication to yourself at home, learn all preparation and usage instructions from your health care professional. Before using, check this product visually for particles or discoloration. If either is present, do not use the liquid. Learn how to store and discard medical supplies safely.

Antibiotics work best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level. Therefore, take this drug at evenly spaced intervals.

Continue to take this medication until the full-prescribed amount is finished even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may allow bacteria to continue to grow, which may result in a relapse of the infection.
