What is Lincocin

Lincocin is an antibiotic that fights bacteria.
Lincocin is used to treat severe bacterial infections in people who cannot use penicillin antibiotics.
Lincocin is used only for a severe infection. This medicine will not treat a viral infection such as the common cold or flu.
Lincocin may also be used for purposes not listed in Lincocin guide.

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, IV tubing, and other items used to inject the medicine.
Lincocin is usually given every 12 to 24 hours. Follow your doctor's instructions.
Use a disposable needle only once, then throw away in a puncture-proof container. Keep this container out of the reach of children and pets.
Use Lincocin 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.
Call your doctor at the first sign of diarrhea during and shortly after your treatment with Lincocin.
If you use Lincocin long-term, you may need frequent medical tests at your doctor's office. Your kidney and liver function may also need to be checked.
