Technical information for the preparation and administration of Cidomycin. 1. NAME OF THE MEDICINAL PRODUCT Cidomycin® 80mg/2ml Solution for Injection. 2. QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE COMPOSITION Each ampoule or vial (2ml) contains Gentamicin Sulphate Ph Eur equivalent to 80mg Gentamicin base. Excipients with known e_x005F_x001F_ect: Sodium chloride: 12.84mg/2ml ampoule or vial. For the full list of excipients, see section 6.1. 3. PHARMACEUTICAL FORM Solution for Injection. Clear, colourless solution. 4.2 Posology and method of administration ADULTS: Serious infections: If renal function is not impaired, 5mg/kg/daily in divided doses at six or eight hourly intervals. The total daily dose may be subsequently increased or decreased as clinically indicated. Systemic infections: If renal function is not impaired, 3-5mg/kg/day in divided doses according to severity of infection, adjusting according to clinical response and body weight. Urinary tract infections: As “Systemic infections”. Or, if renal function is not impaired, 160mg once daily may be used. ELDERLY: There is some evidence that elderly patients may be more susceptible to aminoglycoside toxicity whether secondary to previous auditory/vestibular impairment or borderline renal dysfunction. Accordingly, therapy should be closely monitored by frequent determination of gentamicin serum levels, assessment of renal function and signs of ototoxicity. RENAL IMPAIRMENT: In impaired renal function, the recommended daily dose has to be decreased and adjusted to the renal function. Gentamicin is excreted by simple glomerular _x005F_x001E_ltration and therefore reduced dosage is necessary where renal function is impaired. Nomograms are available for the calculation of dose, which depends on the patient’s age, weight and renal function. The following table may be useful when treating adults. *60mg if body weight
