If you’ve diagnosed your patient with acute or chronic intestinal amebiasis, also known as amoebiasis or amoebic dysentery, or you want to provide an adjunctive therapy to patients with hepatic encephalopathy to manage hepatic coma, there are three ways to prescribe HUMATIN™ (paromomycin sulfate) capsules through the HUMATIN™ Total Care program. Regardless of which route you choose, the HUMATIN™ Total Care program focuses on safety, dosing education, and efficacy.
Note: 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 bacteria.
Before you prescribe HUMATIN™, refer to the dosage information:
- Intestinal amebiasis
- Adults and pediatric patients: Usual dose—25 to 35 mg/kg body weight daily, administered in three doses with meals, for five to ten days.
- Management of hepatic coma
- Adults: Usual dose—4 g daily in divided doses, given at regular intervals for five to six days.
