Gentamicin is an antibiotic
indicated for the treatment of severe infections
of the lungs, skin, blood, joints, stomach, urinary tract and bones. Administered through injection or intravenous infusion (IV), Gentamicin kills infection-causing bacteria. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Gentamicin in 1966.
Potential side effects of Gentamicin include, but may not be limited to, upset stomach, vomiting, fatigue
and pale skin.Gentamicin has been linked to severe hearing and kidney problems. Abnormally high doses of the medication may result in Gentamicin poisoning. The portion of the inner ear that controls balance may suffer irreversible damage as a result. Memory loss and confusion often follow.
See your doctor if you have experienced serious side effects due to Gentamicin. In addition, it may be important to contact an attorney
who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits
within which you must commence suit.
