Tetracycline is an Antibiotic Drug for Treating Bacterial Infections

When you visit your doctor for a suspected bacterial infection, you may be prescribed Tetracycline generic or brand to take as directed while awaiting test results to confirm if the infection is definitely caused by bacteria and is not a viral or fungal infection. If it turns out not to be bacteria, you will be notified to stop taking Tetracycline and advised how to proceed. This is a common practice as many doctors feel it is better to begin treatment with an antibiotic right away than waiting 2 weeks untreated for tests to confirm diagnosis of a bacterial infection. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Conditions Treated by Tetracycline

You may be prescribed Tetracycline to treat bacterial infections of your skin, including severe acne, your intestinal and respiratory tract, urinary tract, lymph nodes, and your genitals for many sexually transmitted diseases. The bacteria susceptible to Tetracycline include Hemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Chlamydia psittaci and trachomatis, and many more.

How Tetracycline Works for Bacterial Infections

Tetracycline is considered a bacteriostatic drug, meaning it does not actually kill the bacteria, but renders the bacteria unable to grow and multiply while your immune system takes care of any bacteria that remain. To do this, Tetracycline targets the bacteria’s ability to produce essential proteins they need in order to grow, replicate, and increase their numbers. Without the proteins, they will die off and your immune system will attack any that survive.

Before You Take Tetracycline

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to conceive, or are breast feeding as there may be risks to your unborn or nursing baby. Discuss your current health with your doctor and list all OTC and Rx drugs you take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements, to determine if Tetracycline is the right drug for your situation.

Important Information About Tetracycline

Taking Tetracycline may make your birth control pills less effective so it is important to use a non-hormonal form of contraception, such as condoms or a spermicide, to avoid an unplanned pregnancy. Do not give Tetracycline to any child under 8 years of age as it could cause permanent tooth discoloration. Tetracycline is best to take on an empty stomach so either 1 hour before a meal or 2 hours after. It is recommended that you take Tetracycline with water as dairy products can interfere with the absorption of this medicine.
