About TPLANIN 400MG INJECTION

TPLANIN 400MG INJECTION belongs to the group of medicines called antibiotic, which is used to treat various bacterial infections of the bones, joints, lungs, urinary tract, abdominal wall(peritonitis), heart(endocarditis). Bacterial infections are caused due to the multiplication of harmful bacteria inside or on the body. Infectious or harmful bacteria can make you sick and reproduce quickly in your body. These harmful bacteria produce chemicals known as toxins, which can damage tissue and make you sick. TPLANIN 400MG INJECTION does not work against infections caused by the virus, including cold and flu.

TPLANIN 400MG INJECTION contains teicoplanin works by interfering with the formation of bacterial cell walls, thereby impairing the bonds that hold the bacterial cell wall together. This allows holes to appear in the bacterial cell walls, which kills the bacteria. Thus, it helps in treating and preventing the spread of infections.

TPLANIN 400MG INJECTION will be administered by a healthcare professional. Do not self-administer TPLANIN 400MG INJECTION. The dose of TPLANIN 400MG INJECTION can vary depending upon your condition and severity of the infection. It is also recommended to complete the course of medicine even if you feel better as it is an antibiotic. Leaving it in between may lead to even severe infection that will, in fact, stop responding to the antibiotic (antibiotic resistance).

In some cases, you may experience certain common side-effects such as diarrhoea, rashes, local pain and redness at the site of injection, changes in results of blood and liver tests, and abnormalities (increases/decrease) in the number of white blood cells and platelets. Not everybody experiences these side-effects. Talk to your doctor if you feel any discomfort while taking TPLANIN 400MG INJECTION.

Before starting TPLANIN 400MG INJECTION, please inform your doctor if you have any allergy (against any antibiotic), kidney or liver problems. Do not take TPLANIN 400MG INJECTION on your own as self-medication may lead to antibiotic-resistance in which antibiotics fail to act against specific bacterial infections. Talk to your doctor before taking TPLANIN 400MG INJECTION if you have a history of diarrhoea after taking antibiotics. Avoid taking TPLANIN 400MG INJECTION if you are pregnant or breastfeeding unless prescribed by a doctor. TPLANIN 400MG INJECTION may cause dizziness, so be cautious while driving. Avoid alcohol consumption to prevent unpleasant side-effects. Inform your doctor about all the medicines you are taking and your health condition to rule out undesirable side effects.
