What is Tikacillin

Treating some types of infections caused by certain bacteria.
Tikacillin is a penicillin antibiotic. It works by interfering with the formation of the bacteria's cell wall while it is growing. This weakens the cell wall and kills the bacteria.

A severe allergic reaction includes a severe rash, hives, breathing difficulties, or dizziness. Ask your health care provider if you are unsure if you are allergic to Tikacillin.
  • Long-term or repeated use of Tikacillin may cause a second infection. Tell your doctor if signs of a second infection occur. Your medicine may need to be changed to treat this.

This may develop while you use the antibiotic or within several months after you stop using it. Contact your doctor right away if stomach pain or cramps, severe diarrhea, or bloody stools occur. Do not treat diarrhea without first checking with your doctor.
