Why do I need this medicine?
Linezolid is an antibiotic. It is used to treat certain bacterial infections of the skin and soft tissue. It is also used to treat lung infections such as pneumonia.

How do I take this medicine?
Take Linezolid exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not take more or less than instructed by your doctor.

Take Linezolid at regular intervals as instructed. Do not skip any doses. Continue to take it even when you feel better. You must complete the entire course of antibiotic. If you don't, the infection will not clear completely.

You may take Linezolid with or without food.

If you have been given the tablet, swallow it whole with a glass of water.

If you have been given the syrup, gently mix the syrup by turning the bottle over 3-5 times. Do not shake the bottle.

What should I do if I have forgotten to take this medicine?
Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and return to your normal dosing schedule.

DO NOT double a dose under any circumstances.

If you often forget to take your medicine, let your doctor and pharmacist know.

When should I not use this medicine?
Alert your doctor if you ever had an allergic reaction (breathlessness, rashes, swollen eyes) to Linezolid.

What should I take note of while taking this medicine?
Inform your doctor if you have liver, kidney or thyroid disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, blood disorders, a type of tumour known as carcinoid syndrome, adrenal gland tumour, psychiatric or any other medical problems.

What side effects could I experience?
Linezolid may cause dizziness or drowsiness. If you feel dizzy or drowsy, do not drive or take part in any activity in which you need to be alert.

Linezolid may cause diarrhoea, nausea, stomach discomfort, change in taste and headache. These side effects are usually temporary. If you have diarrhoea, drink lots of water to replace the fluids lost. However, if you have severe diarrhoea or diarrhoea with severe stomach cramps or bloody stools, alert your doctor.

Linezolid may cause other side effects. Consult your doctor if you have unusual problems while taking this medicine.

Are there any restrictions on the type of food I can take?
Avoid alcohol, especially red wine and tap/ draft beer.

Avoid cheese, air-dried meat (for example sausages and salami), pickles, soy sauce and other soy bean products. These may cause a sudden rise in your blood pressure if taken in large quantities with Linezolid.
