Chloromycetin is used for treating serious infections caused by certain bacteria. Chloromycetin is an antibiotic. It works by killing or slowing the growth of sensitive bacteria.
Use Chloromycetin as directed by your doctor.
- Chloromycetin is best taken with a full glass (8 ounces) of water on an empty stomach (either 1 hour before or 2 hours after meals), unless otherwise directed by your doctor.
- To clear up your infection completely, continue using Chloromycetin for the full course of treatment even if you feel better in a few days.
- If you miss a dose of Chloromycetin, use it as soon as possible. Then use your doses at evenly spaced times as directed by your doctor. Do not use 2 doses at once.
Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Chloromycetin.
