Development of drug-resistant bacteria

Using Hibiotic in the improper diagnosis of bacterial infection may cause the development of resistance in bacteria for the drug.

Abnormal functioning of the kidney

Patients with abnormal functioning of the kidney or taking higher doses of Hibiotic are at an increased risk when using Hibiotic. Use of Hibiotic in these patients may cause convulsions. Dose adjustment is recommended in such patients.

Patients with amoxicillin sensitive bacterial (amoxicillin-susceptible organism) infection

Patients taking allopurinol

Such patients are at an increased risk when using Hibiotic. These patients may develop an allergic skin reaction.

Excessive growth of non-sensitive bacteria (overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms)

Patients taking Hibiotic are at an increased risk. Prolong use of Hibiotic treatment may develop excessive growth of non-sensitive bacteria against medicines.

Allergic to Hibiotic

Patients with a history of allergic reactions to penicillins, cephalosporins, allergens or receiving beta-lactam antibacterials are at an increased risk when using Hibiotic. Such patients may experience life-threatening allergic reactions (anaphylactic) reactions.

If an allergic reaction occurs, discontinue the use of Hibiotic.

Abnormal functioning of the liver

Such patients are at an increased risk when using this medicine.

Interactions with Hibiotic

When two or more medicines are taken together, it can change how the medicines work and increase the risk of side-effects. In medical terms, this is called as a Drug Interaction.
Your doctor's guidelines may need to be followed while taking this medicine along with false-positive reactions. Patients using Hibiotic or amoxicillin alone during testing of glucose in urine using Benedict's solution, Fehling's solution or testing kit may see an increased risk of false positive reactions. Enzymatic glucose oxidase reactions based glucose test should be recommended in such patients.
Hibiotic tablet interacts with allopurinol, which is used to treat redness and tenderness in the joints (gout). Patients using amoxicillin with allopurinol may experience the increased occurrence of rashes as compared to patients taking amoxicillin alone. It is unknown whether the increased incidence of rashes is due to the combined usage of amoxicillin with allopurinol or due to increased levels of uric acid (hyperuricemia) in patients.
There may be an interaction of Hibiotic with oral anticoagulants (acenocoumarol and warfarin), which are used to prevent blood clotting. The use of amoxicillin in combination with oral anticoagulants may abnormally increase the bleeding time in patients. Careful monitoring of blood clotting parameter, with the use or withdrawal of amoxicillin and dose adjustment of oral anticoagulants, is recommended in patients using anticoagulants with Hibiotic.
Hibiotic tablet may interact with probenecid, which is used to treat redness and tenderness in the joints (gout). Probenecid decreases the secretion of amoxicillin in the kidney. The use of Hibiotic with probenecid may increase the level of amoxicillin in the blood. Patients should not use probenecid with Hibiotic.
Special instructions need to be followed while taking this medicine along with oral contraceptives, which are used to prevent unwanted pregnancy. The use of Hibiotic may affect the natural bacteria of the digestive tract which may lead to decreased hormone reabsorption and reduced the effectiveness of oral contraceptives.
There may be an interaction of Hibiotic with mycophenolate mofetil, which is used to prevent rejection in organ transplantation. The use of Hibiotic with mycophenolate mofetil may decrease the level of mycophenolate mofetil in the blood. Doctors should monitor the patients carefully as soon as possible after antibiotic treatment and during the combination therapy.
