About Vinplan Injection

Vinplan 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), and 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. Vinplan Injection does not work against infections caused by the virus, including cold and flu.

Vinplan 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.

Vinplan Injection will be administered by a healthcare professional. Do not self-administer Vinplan Injection. The dose of Vinplan Injection can vary depending on your condition and the 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 common side effects such as diarrhoea, rashes, local pain and redness at the injection site, changes in blood and liver test results, and abnormalities (increases/decreases) 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 Vinplan Injection.

Before starting Vinplan Injection, please inform your doctor if you have any allergy (against any antibiotic), or kidney or liver problems.

Talk to your doctor before taking Vinplan Injection if you have a history of diarrhoea after taking antibiotics. Avoid taking Vinplan Injection if you are pregnant or breastfeeding unless prescribed by a doctor. Vinplan 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.
