Precautions and Warnings of Genticyn 80 MG



Is taking the Genticyn injection safe during pregnancy?
Reproductive toxicity has been demonstrated in animal studies. Gentamicin is a medication that crosses the placenta. Gentamicin should not be used when pregnant unless there is a life-threatening indication and the benefit outweighs the risk due to the danger of inner ear and kidney damage to the growing baby.

Breast Feeding

Is it okay to take Genticyn injection when I'm breastfeeding?
Gentamicin is excreted in breast milk and was found in low concentrations in breast-fed children. Diarrhoea and fungus infection can occur in those infants. Hence, caution must be exercised when giving to mothers that are nursing.


Can I drive after taking the Genticyn injection?
In case you feel dizzy after taking the injection, you should avoid driving.


Can I consume alcohol after taking the Genticyn injection?
You should consult your doctor regarding the safety of consuming alcohol after taking the injection.
