Other aminoglycosides (for example, paromomycin), bacitracin, cisplatin, vancomycin, amphotericin B, polymyxin B, colistin, and viomycin have additive nephrotoxic and neurotoxic effects. Increased toxicity in combination with diuretics (for example, ethacrynic acid, furosemide). Other medications' absorption may be hampered (for example, phenoxymethylpenicillin, digoxin, methotrexate and some vitamin). It's possible that OCs' efficacy will be reduced. Acarbose's impact may be enhanced. Non-depolarizing muscle relaxants may be enhanced by this compound. It's possible that it'll counteract the parasympathomimetic effects of neostigmine and pyridostigmine. In patients using bisphosphonates, it may raise the risk of hypocalcemia. When taken with anticoagulants, it may cause an increase in INR. Oral typhoid vaccination may be rendered ineffective.

Contraindications

Mode of actions

Neomycin binds to the 30S subunits of the bacterial ribosome, limiting protein synthesis and hence affecting DNA synthesis. It has an antibacterial spectrum similar to gentamicin. It's effective against a wide range of gram-negative bacteria, as well as some staphylococci strains. Bacitracin, on the other hand, inhibits bacterial cell wall formation and is effective against a wide range of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria (including staphylococci, streptococci, corynebacteria, and clostridia) (for example, Neisseria and Haemophilus influenzae). They're frequently encountered in topical formulations as broad-spectrum antibacterial agents in combination.
