General Information

Bacampicillin is an antibiotic in the class of drugs called penicillins. Bacampicillin fights bacteria in the body. This drug may be taken with or without food. Antibiotics work best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level. It is used to treat many different types of infections, such as tonsillitis, pneumonia, bronchitis, urinary tract infections, gonorrhea, and infections of the skin. It may decrease the effectiveness of birth control pills. Use a second method of birth control while taking bacampicillin to ensure protection from unintended pregnancy. This medication may cause stomach upset, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting. If these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor. This medication has been prescribed for your current condition only. Do not use it later for another infection or give it to someone else. A different medication may be necessary in those cases. Bacampicillin may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide. Bacampicillin should be taken at evenly spaced intervals throughout the day and night to keep the medicine level in your blood high enough to treat the infection.
