Garamycin is an antibiotic used to treat eye infections, such as conjunctivitis.
Keep at room temperature and protect from heat and light.
Keep using Garamycin for the full length of the treatment even if your symptoms have disappeared. Do not let anyone else use your eye drops, and do not save any remaining medication for a future infection. If you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast-feeding, ask your doctor what is best for you health and your childs health.
Continued or prolonged use of Garamycin may result in a growth of bacteria or fungi that do not respond to Garamycin and may cause a second infection.
