Also known as:
Misultina is in a group of drugs called macrolide antibiotics. Misultina fights bacteria in the body. Misultina
is used to treat many different types of infections caused by bacteria, such as respiratory infections,
infections, ear infections, and sexually transmitted diseases. Misultina may also be used for purposes
than those listed in this medication guide.
To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of Misultina Tablets
other antibacterial drugs, Misultina Tablets should be used only to treat infections that are proven or
strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria. When culture and susceptibility information are
available, they should be considered in selecting or modifying antibacterial therapy. In the absence of
data, local epidemiology and susceptibility patterns may contribute to the empiric selection of therapy.
Misultina Tablets are a macrolide antibacterial drug indicated for the treatment of patients with mild to
moderate infections caused by susceptible strains of the designated microorganisms in the specific
conditions listed below.
Misultina is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections of the nose, throat, lungs, bronchitis,
skin, soft tissues, and sexually transmitted genital and urinary infections.
Misultina is a semi-synthetic macrolide antibiotic of the azalide class. Like other macrolide
Misultina inhibits bacterial protein synthesis by binding to the 50S ribosomal subunit of the bacterial 70S
ribosome. Binding inhibits peptidyl transferase activity and interferes with amino acid translocation
the process of translation. Its effects may be bacteriostatic or bactericidal depending of the organism
the drug concentration. Its long half life, which enables once daily dosing and shorter administration
durations, is a property distinct from other macrolides.
It is important that your child completes the course of antibiotic. This means that they must take the
medicine for the number of days that the doctor has told you to, or until all the medicine has been
taken. If you stop giving the antibiotic too soon, the troublesome bacteria that are left will start to
multiply again, and may cause another infection. There is also a risk that these bacteria will be
resistant to (no longer be killed by) the first antibiotic. This means that it might not work next
time, and your child might need a different antibiotic, which might not work as well or cause more
Children are sometimes sick (vomit) or get diarrhoea when taking antibiotics. Encourage them to drink
water to replace the fluid they have lost. If it is severe or your child is drowsy, contact your doctor.
Do not give your child any medicine to stop the diarrhoea unless your doctor has told you to, as this
can make things worse.
Try to give the medicine at about the same times each day, to help you remember, and to make sure that
there is the right amount of medicine in your child’s body to kill the bacteria.
Only give this medicine to your child for their current infection.
Never save medicine for future illnesses. Give old or unused antibiotics to your pharmacist to dispose
Only give the antibiotic to the child for whom it was prescribed. Never give it to anyone else, even
if their condition appears to be the same, as this could do harm.
If you overdose Misultina and you don't feel good you should visit your doctor or health care
provider immediately. Symptoms of Misultina overdosage: discomfort feeling in stomach, diarrhea,
Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F) away from moisture and heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of reach of children in a container that small children cannot open.
