HUMATIN™ is a broad-spectrum antibiotic used to treat intestinal amebiasis, both chronic and acute. It is also used as an adjunctive therapy in hepatic coma. While taking HUMATIN™, it’s important to have your doctor monitor you for overgrowth of other organisms, such as fungi.
Like other antibiotics, HUMATIN™ should be taken for the full prescribed course of therapy.

HUMATIN™ Indication and Usage
Paromomycin sulfate is indicated for intestinal amebiasis–acute and chronic (NOTE-It is not effective in extraintestinal amebiasis); management of hepatic coma–as adjunctive therapy.
To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of HUMATIN™ Capsules and other antibacterial drugs, HUMATIN™ Capsules should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria. When culture and susceptibility information are available, they should be considered in selecting or modifying antibacterial therapy. In the absence of such data, local epidemiology and susceptibility patterns may contribute to the empiric selection of therapy.
