Dosage and direction

Take exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Recommended dose for adults is 500 mg four times a day, one for 2-10 y.o. Kids is 250 mg four times a day, children younger than 2 y.o. should take 125 mg of Tegopen four times a day. Drink a full glass of water after you took each dose on an empty stomach at least one hour before or two hours after a meal. Do not drink soda or other carbonated beverages as they are able to decrease effectiveness of the treatment. Take this medication regularly at evenly spaced intervals to get the best results.

Do not stop taking this medication without recommendation of your doctor even if your symptoms improved as your infection may not be completely treated.



Precautions

Inform your doctor if you have such conditions as kidney disease, stomach or intestinal illnesses, infectious mononucleosis, diabetes, or allergic to any penicillines. Avoid taking alcohol if you are treated with Tegopen as it is able to worsen its side effects.



Contraindications

Hypersensitivity to the components of Tegopen.



Possible side effect

If during treatment with Tegopen you experience hives, itching, nausea, heartburn, diarrhea, anaphylactic shock, seizures, severe watery diarrhea and abdominal cramps, unusual bleeding or bruising just stop taking it and notify your doctor about your symptoms as you may need immediate medical help.

Drug interaction

Antacids, glucosamine, laxatives, food, aminoglycosides slow down and reduce absorption of Tegopen while ascorbic acid increases it. Co-administration of bactericidal antibiotics (including cephalosporin, cycloserine, vancomycin, rifampin), aminoglycosides co-administered with Tegopen has a combined effect, which exceeds the action of each separate component. Tegopen is an antagonist toward bacteriostatic antibiotics (including macrolides, chloramphenicol, linkosamidy, tetracyclines). Tegopen increases effectiveness of anticoagulants by suppressing the intestinal microflora, reducing prothrombin index. It reduces effectiveness of oral contraceptives. Diuretics, allopurinol, blockers of tubular secretion, phenylbutazone, NSAIDs which decrease the tubular secretion, increase blood levels of Tegopen. Concomitant use with allopurinol increases risk of allergic reactions (rash).



Missed dose

If you forgot to take this medication take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time of your next dose just skip the missed dose and return to your regular schedule.



Overdose
