LNZ 600MG contain linezolid which belongs to a group of medicine called oxazolidinones. It is used to treat pneumonia and some infections in the skin soft tissue infections caused by infection with Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bacteria. Pneumonia is an infection of lung which causes inflammation in alveoli (the air sacs in your lung). The alveoli fill with fluid or pus, making it difficult to breathe.
LNZ 600MG stops bacterial growth by preventing synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. Drinking alcohol, draught beers and wine, eating large amounts of mature cheese yeast extracts, or soya bean extracts should be avoided during this treatment since this medicine may react with a substance called tyramine which is naturally present in some foods. This interaction may cause an increase in your blood pressure.
Always take LNZ 600MG exactly as your doctor has told you. It is strictly not recommended for use in children and adolescents under 18 years. Before taking this medicine tell your doctor if you have ever had kidney disease, heart disease, liver problems. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before taking this medicine. The most common side effects are headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, changes in numbers of certain cells in the blood.
