    What are the uses for Tetracycline Hydrochloride?

    To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of tetracycline hydrochloride and other antibacterial drugs, tetracycline hydrochloride should be used only to treat infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria. When culture and susceptibility information are available, they should be considered in selecting or modifying antibacterial therapy. In the absence of such data, local epidemiology and susceptibility patterns may contribute to the empiric selection of therapy.Tetracycline is indicated in the treatment of infections caused by susceptible strains of the designated organisms in the conditions listed below:Upper respiratory tract infections caused by Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus pneumoniae and Hemophilus influenzae. Note: Tetracycline should not be used for streptococcal disease unless the organism has been demonstrated to be susceptible.Lower respiratory tract infections caused by Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Mycoplasma pneumoniae (Eaton agent, and Klebsiella sp.)Skin and soft tissue infections caused by Streptococcus pyogenes, Staphylococcus aureaus. (Tetracyclines are not the drugs of choice in the treatment of any type of staphylococcal infections.)Infections caused by rickettsia including Rocky Mountain spotted fever, typhus group infections, Q fever, rickettsialpox.Psittacosis caused by Chlamydophila psittaci.Infections caused by Chlamydia trachomatis such as uncomplicated urethral, endocervical or rectal infections, inclusion conjunctivitis, trachoma, and lymphogranuloma venereum.Granuloma inquinale caused by Klebsiella granulomatis.Relapsing fever caused by Borrelia sp.Bartonellosis caused by Bartonella bacilliformis.Chancroid caused by Hemophilus ducreyi.Tularemia caused by Francisella tularensis.Plaque caused by Yersinia pestis.Cholera caused by Vibrio cholerae.Brucellosis caused by Brucella species (tetracycline may be used in conjunction with an aminoglycoside).Infections due to Campylobacter fetus.As adjunctive therapy in intestinal amebiasis caused by Entamoeba histolytica.Urinary tract infections caused by susceptible strains of Escherichia coli, Klebsiella, etc.Other infections caused by susceptible gram-negative organisms such as E. coli, Enterobacter aerogenes, Shigella sp., Acinetobacter sp., Klebsiella sp., and Bacteroides sp.In severe acne, adjunctive therapy with tetracycline may be useful.When penicillin is contraindicated, tetracyclines are alternative drugs in the treatment of the following infections:Syphilis and yaws caused by Treponema pallidum and pertenue, respectively,Vincent's infection caused by Fusobacterium fusiforme,Infections caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae,Anthrax caused by Bacillus anthracis,Infections due to Listeria monocytogenes,Actinomycosis caused by Actinomyces species,Infections due to Clostridium species.

    Patient Education

    Tetracycline


    Tetracycline is used to treat infections caused by bacteria including pneumonia and other respiratory tract infections; ; certain infections of skin, eye, lymphatic, intestinal, genital and urinary systems; and certain other infections that are spread by ticks, lice, mites, and infected animals. It is also used along with other medications to treat acne. Tetracycline is also used to treat plague and tuleramia (serious infections that may be spread on purpose as part of a bioterror attack). It can also be used in patients who cannot be treated with penicillin to treat certain types of food poisoning, and anthrax (a serious infection that may be spread on purpose as part of a bioterror attack). Tetracycline is in a class of medications called tetracycline antibiotics. It works by preventing the growth and spread of bacteria. Antibiotics such as tetracycline will not work for colds, flu, or other viral infections. Using antibiotics when they are not needed increases your risk of getting an infection later that resists antibiotic treatment.

    Antibiotics


    What are antibiotics?

    Antibiotics are medicines that fight bacterial infections in people and animals. They work by killing the bacteria or by making it hard for the bacteria to grow and multiply.

    Antibiotics can be taken in different ways:

    • Orally (by mouth). This could be pills, capsules, or liquids.
    • Topically. This might be a cream, spray, or ointment that you put on your skin. It could also be eye ointment, eye drops, or ear drops.
    • Through an injection or intravenously (IV). This is usually for more serious infections.

    What do antibiotics treat?

    Antibiotics only treat certain bacterial infections, such as strep throat, urinary tract infections, and E. coli.

    You may not need to take antibiotics for some bacterial infections. For example, you might not need them for many sinus infections or some ear infections. Taking antibiotics when they're not needed won't help you, and they can have side effects. Your health care provider can decide the best treatment for you when you're sick. Don't ask your provider to prescribe an antibiotic for you.

    Do antibiotics treat viral infections?

    Antibiotics do not work on viral infections. For example, you shouldn't take antibiotics for:

    What are the side effects of antibiotics?

    The side effects of antibiotics range from minor to very severe. Some of the common side effects include:

    More serious side effects can include:

    Call your health care provider if you develop any side effects while taking your antibiotic.

    Why is it important to take antibiotics only when they're needed?

    You should only take antibiotics when they are needed because they can cause side effects and can contribute to antibiotic resistance. Antibiotic resistance happens when the bacteria change and become able to resist the effects of an antibiotic. This means that the bacteria continue to grow.

    How do I use antibiotics correctly?

    When you take antibiotics, it is important that you take them responsibly:

    • Always follow the directions carefully. Finish your medicine even if you feel better. If you stop taking them too soon, some bacteria may survive and re-infect you.
    • Don't save your antibiotics for later.
    • Don't share your antibiotic with others.
    • Don't take antibiotics prescribed for someone else. This may delay the best treatment for you, make you even sicker, or cause side effects.
