Amikacin Sulfate

Drug Info for amikacin sulfate

Amikacin injection is used to treat certain serious infections that are caused by bacteria such as meningitis (infection of the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord) and infections of the blood, abdomen (stomach area), lungs, skin, bones, joints, and urinary tract. Amikacin injection is in a class of medications called aminoglycoside antibiotics. It works by killing bacteria. Antibiotics such as amikacin injection will not work for colds, flu, or other viral infections. Taking antibiotics when they are not needed increases your risk of getting an infection later that resists antibiotic treatment.

Your doctor will prescribe your exact dose and tell you how often it should be given.

An IM injection is a shot given in your muscle (upper arm, thigh, buttocks). An IV infusion is medicine that is put directly into your body through one of your veins.

This medicine should be given by a person trained to give IV or IM medicine, such as a nurse. Sometimes you, a family member, or friend can be taught to give your medicine.

If you are receiving IV medicine, check the bag to make sure there are no leaks. Also make sure the solution is clear.

You should not use this medicine if you have ever had an allergic reaction to amikacin or any other aminoglycoside antibiotic such as Garamycin® or Nebcin®.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, talk to your doctor before taking this medicine.

Make sure your doctor knows if you have kidney disease or myasthenia gravis.

Call your doctor right away if you notice any change in your hearing. Your doctor may want you to have hearing tests while you are taking amikacin.

If your infection does not improve, or gets worse, while taking this medicine, call your doctor.
