Lincocin (lincomycin) is an antibiotic that fights bacteria in the body. Lincocin is used to treat severe bacterial infections in the lungs, blood, bones, joints, skin, and urinary tract. Lincocin is also used to treat certain types of meningitis (infection of the lining of the brain and spinal cord). Lincocin may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
You should not use Lincocin if you are allergic to it, or if:
you have had a severe allergic reaction to an antibiotic such as erythromycin, azithromycin, clarithromycin, or vancomycin;
you have a history of intestinal problems such as colitis or enteritis;
you have ever had kidney disease; or
you are pregnant.
To make sure Lincocin is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have ever had:
stomach or intestinal problems, especially colitis or enteritis;
asthma or other breathing disorder;
a blood disorder such as anemia (lack of red blood cells);
a history of cancer; or
if you are malnourished.
Lincocin can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. You should not breast-feed while using this medicine.
Lincocin is not approved for use by anyone younger than 18 years old.
How is Lincocin given?
Lincocin is injected into a muscle, or into a vein through an IV. You may be shown how to use an IV at home. Do not self-inject this medicine if you do not understand how to give the injection and properly dispose of used needles and syringes.
Use only the brand of this medicine that your doctor prescribed. Do not use Lincocin in larger or smaller amounts, or for longer than recommended.
Your doctor will perform blood tests to make sure you do not have conditions that would prevent you from safely using Lincocin.
Lincocin is usually given for 7 to 10 days. Follow all directions on your prescription label. Do not use this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.
Use this medicine for the full prescribed length of time. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cleared. Skipping doses may also increase your risk of further infection that is resistant to antibiotics. Lincocin will not treat a viral infection such as the flu or a common cold.
Call your doctor if your symptoms do not improve, or if they get worse while using Lincocin.
Store at room temperature away from moisture, heat, and light.
Do not freeze.
Do not use a Lincocin vial that has been frozen.
Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date on the label has passed.
