Drug Interaction: Chloramphenicol is known to interact with other drugs like amoxicillin, ampicillin, ascorbic acid, azlocillin (Na), bacampicillin, benzathine penicillin, carbenicillin (Na), chlorpropamide, chymotrypsin, cimetidine (HCl), ciprofloxacin, cloxacillin, clozapine, colistin (Sulphate & Sulphomethate Na), cyanocobalamin, cyclophosphamide, dicloxacillin (Na), ethinyloestradiol, floxacillin (Na), fosphenytoin, estodene, glibornuride, gliquidone, hydroxocobalamin, ichthammol, iron dextran, iron salts, iron sorbitol, mecillinam, mecobalamin, nafcillin, oxacillin, paracetamol, phenobarbitone, phenytoin (Na), piperacillin (Na),pivmecillinam (HCl), primidone, procaine penicillin, promethazine (HCl),rifampicin, sulfapyridine, tolbutamide, warfarin (Na).
Mechanism of Action: Chloramphenicol is lipid-soluble, allowing it to diffuse through the bacterial cell membrane. It then reversibly binds to the L16 protein of the 50S subunit of bacterial ribosomes, where transfer of amino acids to growing peptide chains is prevented (perhaps by suppression of peptidyl transferase activity), thus inhibiting peptide bond formation and subsequent protein synthesis.
Pregnancy Impact: Animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks.
Impact During Lactation: Studies in breastfeeding mothers have demonstrated that there is significant and documented risk to the infant based on human experience, or it is a medication that has a high risk of causing significant damage to an infant. The risk of using the drug in breastfeeding women clearly outweighs any possible benefit from breastfeeding. The drug is contraindicated in women who are breastfeeding an infant.

Probable Side Effects: :Convulsions, coma, psychosis, hypersensitivity reactions, neuromuscular blockage, nephrotoxicity, neurotoxicity, hematuria, dizziness, drowsiness, ataxia, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, confusion, urticaria, flushing, muscle weakness, paresthesias, proteinuria.

Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required.
Mechanism of Action: Polymyxin B interacts with the lipopolysaccharide of the cytoplasmic outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria, altering membrane permeability and causing cell death.
Pregnancy Impact: Animal reproduction studies have failed to demonstrate a risk to the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women.
Impact During Lactation: There are no controlled studies in breastfeeding women, however the risk of untoward effects to a breastfed infant is possible; or, controlled studies show only minimal non-threatening adverse effects. Drugs should be given only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the infant.
