AdvaCare is a GMP manufacturer of Linezolid tablets.
Linezolid is an antibiotic. It is effective against bacteria and acts by binding to bacterial 23s or RNA of the 50s subunit to prevent protein translation. With this action, it prevents bacteria from growing by interfering with their ability to make proteins. Linezolid doesn’t interfere with the production of protein in humans because proteins are made differently in people and bacteria. Linezolid tablets are excreted in feces, urine, and other pathways.
As with all pharmaceutical medicines, some unwanted effects can occur from the use of linezolid tablets. Always consult a physician for medical advice before use. Common side effects may include: diarrhea, headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, rash, vaginal moniliasis, taste alteration, fungal infection, localized abdominal pain, generalized abdominal pain, and tongue discoloration. More severe side effects may include anaphylaxis, angioedema, bullous skin disorder, and sideroblastic anemia. For a comprehensive list of all possible effects, consult your doctor. If any symptom persists or gets worse, or you notice any other symptoms, then please call your doctor immediately.
Always consult a medical doctor or patient care specialist before using linezolid tablets.
