What is E-Mycin used for?

E-mycin 400mg tablets are an antibiotic used to treat a variety of mild to moderate infections caused by certain susceptible types of bacteria in different areas of the body, including, respiratory tract infections like laryngitis, bronchitis and pharyngitis; skin, soft tissue, eye, ear and gastrointestinal infections; urinogenital infections, like gonorrhea and syphilis; and for specific infectious diseases like Legionnaire’s disease.

This action stops the growth of the bacteria and relieves symptoms of the bacterial infection, which include inflammation and pain. E-mycin 400mg tablets do not work against viruses which use a different mechanism to grow and replicate.
