What is Dynabac?

Dynabac is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. It is a bactericidal agent that works by inhibiting bacterial cell wall synthesis. Dynabac is typically used to treat infections of the respiratory tract, skin, and soft tissue. It is also sometimes used to treat Helicobacter pylori infections.

Dynabac is available as an oral capsule, an oral suspension, and an injectable solution. The oral capsule and suspension are usually taken four times daily. The injectable solution is usually given every six hours. Dynabac should be taken with food or milk to minimize stomach upset.

Dynabac has activity against some viruses, including influenza and hepatitis C. In addition, Dynabac has activity against some fungi, including candidiasis and aspergillosis.

Pharmacokinetics

Dynabac is rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract after oral administration. Dynabac is widely distributed throughout the body and crosses the blood-brain barrier. Dynabac is metabolized in the liver and is excreted in the urine. The elimination half-life of Dynabac is approximately two hours.

Alternatives to Dynabac

Alternatives to Dynabac include other antibiotics, antifungals, and antivirals. These agents may be used alone or in combination with each other depending on the specific infection being treated.
