Side effects of Doxamicina in details

A side effect of any drug can be defined as the unwanted or undesired effect produced by the drug. The side effect can be major or in few medications minor that can be ignored. Side effects not only vary from drug to drug, but it also depends on the dose of the drug, the individual sensitivity of the person, brand or company which manufactures it. If side effects overweigh the actual effect of the medicine, it may be difficult to convince the patient to take the drug. Few patients get specific side effects to specific drugs; in that case, a doctor replaces the drug with another. If you feel any side effect and it troubles you, do not forget to share with your healthcare practitioner.

What is the most important information I should know about Doxamicina?

  • Doxamicina may cause dizziness. This effect may be worse if you take it with alcohol or certain medicines. Use Doxamicina with caution. Do not drive or perform other possibly unsafe tasks until you know how you react to it.
  • Doxamicina may cause temporary effects such as dizziness; slurred speech; itching; burning or numbness around the mouth; or numbness or tingling in the arms or legs. Contact your doctor if these effects occur. Your dose may need to be decreased.
  • Doxamicina only works against bacteria; it does not treat viral infections (eg, the common cold).
  • Be sure to use Doxamicina for the full course of treatment. If you do not, the medicine may not clear up your infection completely. The bacteria could also become less sensitive to this or other medicines. This could make the infection harder to treat in the future.
  • Long-term or repeated use of Doxamicina may cause a second infection. Tell your doctor if signs of a second infection occur. Your medicine may need to be changed to treat this.
  • Mild diarrhea is common with antibiotic use. However, a more serious form of diarrhea (pseudomembranous colitis) may rarely occur. This may develop while you use the antibiotic or within several months after you stop using it. Contact your doctor right away if stomach pain or cramps, severe diarrhea, or bloody stools occur. Do not treat diarrhea without first checking with your doctor.
  • Tell your doctor or dentist that you take Doxamicina before you receive any medical or dental care, emergency care, or surgery.
  • Use Doxamicina with caution in the ELDERLY, especially patients with kidney problems; they may be more sensitive to its effects.
  • Caution is advised when using Doxamicina in CHILDREN; they may be more sensitive to its effects.
  • Use Doxamicina with extreme caution in CHILDREN younger than 10 years of age who have diarrhea or an infection of the stomach or bowel.
  • PREGNANCY and BREAST-FEEDING: If you become pregnant, contact your doctor. You will need to discuss the benefits and risks of using Doxamicina while you are pregnant. It is not known if Doxamicina is found in breast milk. If you are or will be breast-feeding while you use Doxamicina, check with your doctor. Discuss any possible risks to your baby.

Doxamicina contraindications

Contraindication can be described as a special circumstance or a disease or a condition wherein you are not supposed to use the drug or undergo particular treatment as it can harm the patient; at times, it can be dangerous and life threatening as well.
