AdvaCare is a GMP manufacturer of Chlortetracycline eye ointments.
Chlortetracycline ointment is used for the treatment of bacterial infections of eye. This topical ointment is used for bacterial blepharitis, bacterial keratitis, corneal ulcer, stye, suspected bacterial conjunctivitis and trachoma. This ointment belongs to the class of tetracyclines.
Tetracyclines concentrate intracellularly in susceptible organisms. The drugs bind reversibly to the 30S subunit of the bacterial ribosome. This action prevents binding of aminoacyl-t-RNA to the mRNA–ribosome complex, thereby inhibiting bacterial protein synthesis.
As with all pharmaceuticals some unwanted effects can occur from the use of chlortetracycline eye ointments. Always consult a doctor or health care professional for medical advice before use.
Common side effects include: skin rashes, urticaria, glossitis, pruritus ani and vulvae, even exfoliative dermatitis.
Seek medical attention if any adverse effects occur.
For a comprehensive list of all possible effects, consult your doctor.
If any symptom persists or gets worse, or you notice any other symptom, then please call your doctor immediately.
