GOVERNMENT AUTHORITY SCRIPT

This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item

WARNING - MULTIPLE PACK PRESCRIPTION - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

General Information

Consumer Medicine Information

What is in this leaflet

This leaflet answers some common questions about Dalacin C capsules. It does not contain all the available information.

It does not take the place of talking

to your doctor or pharmacist. All medicines have risks and benefits. Your doctor has weighed the risks of you taking Dalacin C against the benefits this medicine is expected to have for you. If you have any concerns about using this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Keep this leaflet with your medicine. You may need to read it again.

What Dalacin C capsules are used for

Dalacin C is an antibiotic. It is used to treat infections in different parts of the body caused by bacteria.

Dalacin C works by killing or stopping the growth of the bacteria causing your infection.

Dalacin C will not work against viral infections such as colds or flu.

Dalacin C is recommended for patients who are allergic to penicillin or patients for whom penicillin is not suitable.

Your doctor may have prescribed Dalacin C for another reason. Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why Dalacin C has been prescribed for you.

This medicine is available only with a doctor's prescription.

Dalacin C is not addictive.

Before taking Dalacin C capsules

When you must not take Dalacin C capsules

Do not take Dalacin C capsules:
1. if you have an allergy to:
clindamycin or lincomycin
lactose or any of the other ingredients listed at the end of this leaflet (see 'Product Description')

Symptoms of an allergic reaction may include skin rash, itching or difficulty in breathing.
2. if the packaging is torn or shows signs of tampering
3. after the expiry date (EXP) printed on the label.

If you take it after the expiry date, it may have no effect at all, or worse, an entirely unexpected effect.

If you are not sure whether you should start taking Dalacin C capsules, talk to your doctor.

Before you start to take Dalacin C capsules

You must tell your doctor about all of the following before you start to take Dalacin C:
1. if you have any allergies to any other medicines or any other substances such as foods, preservatives or dyes.
2. if you are pregnant or intend to become pregnant

Clindamycin crosses the placenta therefore Dalacin C capsules should only be used in pregnancy if clearly needed. Your doctor will discuss the risks and benefits of taking Dalacin C during pregnancy.
3. if you are breast-feeding or plan to breast-feed.

Dalacin C capsules are not recommended during breastfeeding.
4. if you have or have ever had:
severe diarrhoea associated with the use of antibiotics
severe liver disease
severe kidney disease
any gastrointestinal (stomach or gut) problems
5. if you have had any other health problems or medical conditions

If you have not told your doctor or pharmacist about any of the above, do so before you start taking Dalacin C capsules.

Taking other medicines

Tell your doctor if you are taking any other medicines, including medicines you buy without a prescription from a pharmacy, supermarket or health food shop.

There may be interference between Dalacin C and some other medicines including:
the antibiotic, erythromycin
medicines used for muscle relaxation in anaesthesia

These medicines may be affected by Dalacin C or may affect how well Dalacin C works. You may need different amounts of your medicine or you may need to take different medicines. Your doctor or pharmacist may have more information on medicines to be careful with or avoid while taking Dalacin C.

How to take Dalacin C capsules

Your doctor or pharmacist will tell you how to take your Dalacin C capsules.

Follow all directions given to you by your doctor and pharmacist carefully. Their directions may differ from the information contained in this leaflet. You may be given a different dosage depending on your condition and how you react to the medicine.

The directions your doctor or pharmacist gives you should be strictly followed.

If you do not understand the instructions in this leaflet, ask your doctor or pharmacist for help.

How much to take and how long to take it

Adults

One (1) capsule (150 mg) every six hours is the usual dose. The number of capsules may increase with more serious infections. Your doctor will tell you how long to take your capsules.

Children

Dalacin C capsules are not recommended in children for formulation reasons.

Continue taking Dalacin C until you finish the box or until your doctor recommends. Check with your doctor if you are not sure how long you should be taking it.

Do not stop taking Dalacin C capsules because you are feeling better. If you do not complete the full course prescribed by your doctor, all of the bacteria causing your infection may not be killed. These bacteria may continue to grow and multiply so that your infection may not clear completely or may return.

How to take it and when to take it

Dalacin C capsules should be taken by mouth, with a full glass of water. Dalacin C can be taken with or without food, it does not matter.

If you forget to take it

If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the dose you missed and take your next dose when you are meant to. Otherwise, take it as soon as you remember, then go back to taking your capsules as you would normally.

If you are not sure whether to skip the dose, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

Do not double a dose to make up for the dose you have missed.

If you take too much (overdose)

Immediately telephone your doctor or Poisons Information Centre (telephone 13 11 26) for advice, or go to Accident and Emergency (Casualty) at your nearest hospital if you think that you or anyone else may have taken too much Dalacin C. Do this even if there are no signs of discomfort or poisoning. You may need urgent medical attention.

Keep telephone numbers for these places/services handy. Have the Dalacin C box or this leaflet available to give details if needed.

While you are taking Dalacin C capsules

Things you must do

If the symptoms of your infection do not improve within a few days, or if they become worse, tell your doctor.

If you get severe diarrhoea, tell your doctor, pharmacist or nurse immediately. Do this even if it occurs several weeks after you have stopped taking Dalacin C. Diarrhoea may mean that you have a serious condition affecting your bowel. You may need urgent medical care. Do not take any medicines for diarrhoea without first checking with your doctor.

If you get a sore, white mouth or tongue while taking or soon after stopping Dalacin C, tell your doctor. Also tell your doctor if you get vaginal itching or discharge. This may mean you have a fungal/yeast infection called thrush. Sometimes the use of Dalacin C allows fungi/yeast to grow and the above symptoms to occur. Dalacin C does not work against fungi/yeast.

If you become pregnant while taking Dalacin C, tell your doctor immediately.

If you are about to start taking any new medicines, tell your doctor and pharmacist that you are taking Dalacin C.

Tell all doctors, dentists and pharmacists who are treating you that you are taking Dalacin C.

If you feel that Dalacin C is not helping your condition, tell your doctor.

Tell your doctor if, for any reason, you have not used Dalacin C exactly as prescribed.

Things you must not do

Do not give Dalacin C to anyone else, even if they have the same condition as you.

Do not use Dalacin C to treat any other medical complaints unless your doctor tells you to.

Side effects

Check with your doctor or pharmacist as soon as possible if you have any problems while taking Dalacin C, even if you do not think the problems are connected with the medicine or are not listed in this leaflet. Like other medicines, Dalacin C can cause some side effects. If they occur, most are likely to be minor and temporary. However, some may be serious and need medical attention.

watery and severe diarrhoea which may also be bloody;
fever, in combination with one or both of the above.

These are rare, but serious side effects. You may need urgent medical attention.

Other side effects not listed above may also occur in some patients. Tell your doctor if you notice anything else that is making you feel unwell.

Do not be alarmed by this list of possible side effects. You may not experience any of them.

After using Dalacin C capsules

Storage

Keep your Dalacin C capsules in their original container in a cool, dry place where the temperature stays below 25 °C. If you take the capsules out of their original container, they may not keep as well.

Do not store your Dalacin C capsules, or any other medicine, in a bathroom or near a sink. Do not leave them in the car or on window sills. Heat and dampness can destroy some medicines.

Keep your Dalacin C capsules where children cannot reach them. A locked cupboard at least one-and-a-half metres above the ground is a good place to store medicines.

Disposal

If your doctor tells you to stop using Dalacin C or the capsules have passed their expiry date, ask your pharmacist what to do with any capsules left over.
