MAXOLID DS DRY contain linezolid which belongs to a group of medicine called oxazolidinones. It is used to treat pneumonia and some infections in the skin or under the skin. Pneumonia is an infection in one or both lung which causes inflammation in the air sacs (alveoli) in your lungs. The alveoli fill with fluids or pus, making it difficult to breathe.
MAXOLID DS DRY prevents the synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions and thus stops their growth. It may react with a substance called tyramine which is naturally present in some foods such as large amount of mature cheese, yeast extracts, or soya bean extracts such as soy sauce, and drinking alcohol, especially draught beers and wine. This interaction may cause an increase in your blood pressure, so avoid consumption of these foods.
Always take MAXOLID DS DRY exactly as your doctor has told you. Check the label for directions before use. 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.
