I want to ask nThe actual treatment that uses the antibiotic amikacin injection per day? nPlease explain, doctor
Hello Mother Maria! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Amikacin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic that works by inhibiting bacterial growth. This drug is available as an injection, that is, it is used by injection into a vein or into a muscle directly. The dose and duration of therapy given depend on the infectious disease experienced, body weight, and response to therapy. Treatment with amikacin must be completed for the number of days prescribed by the doctor even though the patient is asymptomatic. Stopping treatment too quickly can cause bacteria to grow back, leading to back pain. In treatment using amikacin, make sure the patient is under the supervision of a doctor. Tell your doctor if symptoms persist or worsen despite treatment. Tell your doctor right away if there is a skin rash, tightness, vomiting, or fainting after injection of the drug. This medicine is not recommended for pregnant and lactating women.
That's my explanation. I hope this helps.
