Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

Q: What will happen if I miss my dose often?

A: It is advised not to miss any dose of antibiotics as it can result in the failure of therapy.

Q: For how long do I need to take the Merosure O tablet?

A: You are supposed to complete the prescribed dosage duration by your physician. If you skip the dose or do not complete the course, then it may cause resistance and decrease the effectiveness of immediate treatment.

Q: Is Merosure O tablet a better antibiotic than others?

A: Merosure O tablet belongs to the 'penem' class of antibiotics which is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections that are not responding to other regularly used antibiotics (multi-drug resistant infections). The advantage of the Merosure O tablet is that it is available in tablet form and can be conveniently taken, compared to imipenem or meropenem, the other 'penems' which are needed to be taken as injections.
