What is Dagracycline?

Dagracycline is a tetracycline antibiotic that fights bacteria in the body.

Dagracycline is used to treat many different bacterial infections, such as acne, urinary tract infections, intestinal infections, eye infections, gonorrhea, chlamydia, periodontitis (gum disease), and others.

Dagracycline is also used to treat blemishes, bumps, and acne-like lesions caused by rosacea. Dagracycline will not treat facial redness caused by rosacea.

Some forms of Dagracycline are used to prevent malaria, to treat anthrax, or to treat infections caused by mites, ticks, or lice.

Dagracycline may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Dagracycline indications

An indication is a term used for the list of condition or symptom or illness for which the medicine is prescribed or used by the patient. For example, acetaminophen or paracetamol is used for fever by the patient, or the doctor prescribes it for a headache or body pains. Now fever, headache and body pains are the indications of paracetamol. A patient should be aware of the indications of medications used for common conditions because they can be taken over the counter in the pharmacy meaning without prescription by the Physician.

Rickettsial Infections

Dagracycline® and Dagracycline® CAP are indicated for treatment of Rocky Mountain spotted fever, typhus fever and the typhus group, Q fever, rickettsial pox, and tick fevers caused by Rickettsiae.

Adjunctive Therapy for Acute Intestinal Amebiasis and Severe Acne

In acute intestinal amebiasis, Dagracycline and Dagracycline CAP may be a useful adjunct to amebicides.

In severe acne, Dagracycline and Dagracycline CAP may be useful adjunctive therapy.

Prophylaxis of Malaria

Dagracycline and Dagracycline CAP are indicated for the prophylaxis of malaria due to Plasmodium falciparum in short-term travelers (less than 4 months) to areas with chloroquine and/or pyrimethamine-sulfadoxine resistant strains.


To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of Dagracycline and Dagracycline CAP and other antibacterial drugs, Dagracycline and Dagracycline CAP should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria. When culture and susceptibility information are available, they should be considered in selecting or modifying antibacterial therapy. In the absence of such data, local epidemiology and susceptibility patterns may contribute to the empiric selection of therapy.

How should I use Dagracycline?

Use Dagracycline kit as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.

  • Dagracycline kit kit contains antibiotic capsules, eyelid cleansing pads, and a moisturizing spray.
  • To use the eyelid cleansing pad:
    • Remove contact lenses before you use Dagracycline kit.
    • Wash your hands before using Dagracycline kit. Close the eyes and gently cleanse the eyelids using side to side strokes. Avoid touching the eyes directly. Rinse or leave on as directed by your doctor. Discard after use.
  • To use the moisturizing spray:
    • Hold the spray tip 4 to 6 inches away from the eye. Close the eye and spray directly onto the eyelid surface. Gently massage into the eyelids and lashes. If directed to do so by your doctor, repeat this procedure with the other eye.
    • If you prefer, you may spray onto the inner side of the finger and then gently massage onto the eyelids and lashes. Do not spray directly into the eyes.
  • To take the antibiotic:
    • Take Dagracycline kit by mouth with or without food. If stomach upset occurs, take with food to reduce stomach irritation.
    • Take Dagracycline kit with a full glass of water (8 oz/240 mL) and drink plenty of fluids to prevent ulcers and reduce throat irritation.
    • Do not eat or drink calcium-rich foods (eg, milk or other dairy products, calcium-enriched juices), or take an antacid that has aluminum, calcium, or magnesium in it; bismuth subsalicylate; iron; or urinary alkalinizers (eg, sodium bicarbonate) within 2 hours before or 2 hours after you take Dagracycline kit.
    • Use Dagracycline kit on a regular schedule to get the most benefit from it. It may take several days to see the full effect of Dagracycline kit.
    • To clear up your infection completely, take Dagracycline kit for the full course of treatment. Keep taking it even if your condition improves in a few days.
    • Do not use Dagracycline kit if it is past the expiration date on the bottle.
  • If you miss a dose of Dagracycline kit, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.

Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Dagracycline kit.

Uses of Dagracycline in details

There are specific as well as general uses of a drug or medicine. A medicine can be used to prevent a disease, treat a disease over a period or cure a disease. It can also be used to treat the particular symptom of the disease. The drug use depends on the form the patient takes it. It may be more useful in injection form or sometimes in tablet form. The drug can be used for a single troubling symptom or a life-threatening condition. While some medications can be stopped after few days, some drugs need to be continued for prolonged period to get the benefit from it.

Dagracycline description


Dagracycline is a broad-spectrum antibiotic synthetically derived from oxytetracycline and is available as Dagracycline monohydrate and Dagracycline hyclate (hydrochloride hemiethanolate hemihydrate). The chemical designation of this light-yellow crystalline powder is α-6-deoxy-5-oxytetracycline. Dagracycline has a high degree of lipoid solubility and a low affinity for calcium binding. It is highly stable in normal human serum. Dagracycline will not degrade into an epianhydro form.

The molecular formula for Dagracycline hydrochloride hemiethanolate hemihydrate is (C22H24N2O8·HCl)2·C2H6O·H2O and the molecular weight is 1025.89. Dagracycline is a light-yellow crystalline powder. Dagracycline hyclate is soluble in water, while Dagracycline monohydrate is very slightly soluble in water.

Dagracycline dosage

Dagracycline (Dagracycline hyclate) ® is a variable dose product dependent on the size, shape, and number of pockets being treated.

Preparation for Use

1. If refrigerated, remove the product from refrigeration at least 15 minutes prior to mixing.

2. Couple Syringe A (liquid delivery system) and Syringe B (drug powder).

3. Inject the liquid contents of Syringe A (indicated by red stripe) into Syringe B (Dagracycline powder) and then push the contents back into Syringe A. This entire operation is one mixing cycle.

4. Complete 100 mixing cycles at a pace of one cycle per second using brisk strokes.

If immediate use is desired, skip to step 7.

5. If necessary, the coupled syringes can be stored at room temperature for a maximum of three days. Some of the Dagracycline (Dagracycline hyclate) systems are packaged in resealable pouches that can be used for this purpose. If the Dagracycline (Dagracycline hyclate) system is packaged in a try, use an airtight container.

6. After storage, perform an additional ten mixing cycles just prior to use.

Continue with immediate use instructions.

7. The contents will be in Syringe A (indicated by red stripe). Hold the coupled syringes vertically with Syringe A at the bottom. Pull back on the Syringe A plunger and allow the contents to flow down the barrel for several seconds.

8. Uncouple the two syringes and attach one of the provided cannulae to Syringe A.

Product is now ready for application.

Product Administration

Dagracycline (Dagracycline hyclate) ® does not require local anesthesia for placement. Bend the cannula to resemble a periodontal probe and explore the periodontal pocket in a manner similar to periodontal probing. Keeping the cannula tip near the base of the pocket, express the product into the pocket until the formulation reaches the top of the gingival margin. Withdraw the cannula tip from the pocket. In order to separate the tip from the formulation, turn the tip of the cannula towards the tooth, press the tip against the tooth surface, and pinch the string of formulation from the tip of the cannula. Variations on this technique may be needed to achieve separation between Dagracycline (Dagracycline hyclate) ® and cannula.

If desired, using an appropriate dental instrument, Dagracycline (Dagracycline hyclate) ® may be packed into the pocket. Dipping the edge of the instrument in water before packing will help keep Dagracycline (Dagracycline hyclate) ® from sticking to the instrument, and will help speed coagulation of Dagracycline (Dagracycline hyclate) ®. A few drops of water dripped onto the surface of Dagracycline (Dagracycline hyclate) ® once in the pocket will also aid in coagulation. If necessary, add more Dagracycline (Dagracycline hyclate) ® as described above and pack it into the pocket until the pocket is full.

Cover the pockets containing Dagracycline (Dagracycline hyclate) ® with either Coe-Pak™ periodontal dressing or a cyanoacrylate dental adhesive.

Application of Dagracycline (Dagracycline hyclate) ® may be repeated four months after initial treatment.

How supplied

The final blended product is 500 mg of formulation containing 50 mg of Dagracycline hyclate (Dagracycline hyclate, 10%).

Dagracycline (Dagracycline hyclate) ® is available as a tray or pouch containing a Dagracycline hyclate syringe (50 mg), an ATRIGEL® Delivery System syringe (450 mg), and a blunt cannula. The pouched product is available in a box of six (NDC 63646-191-00) a box of two (NDC63646-191-02), or a professional sample pouch (NDC 63646-191-01).

What other drugs will affect Dagracycline?


Medications containing metal ions (antacids, products containing iron, magnesium, calcium) form inactive chelates with Dagracycline, in connection with what it is necessary to avoid their simultaneous use.

It needed to avoid combination with penicillins, cephalosporins, bactericidal action and is an antagonist of bacteriostatic antibiotics (including Dagracycline).

Absorption of Dagracycline is reduced by cholestyramine and colestipol (observe the interval between the reception of at least 3 h).

Due to suppression of intestinal microflora Dagracycline reduces prothrombin index which requires dose adjustment of indirect anticoagulants.

Dagracycline reduces the reliability of contraception and increases the frequency of breakthrough bleeding while taking estrogen-containing oral contraceptives.

Simultaneous administration of Dagracycline with:

  • barbiturates, carbamazepine, phenytoin concentrations of Dagracycline in plasma decreases due to the induction of liver enzymes, which may be responsible for the decrease of its antibacterial action.
  • retinol improves intracranial pressure.
