Terms & Conditions of Program
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
Altabax is a prescription ointment used to treat impetigo in patients nine months of age and older. It is suitable for use in both children and adults.
Impetigo is a type of skin infection caused by Staphylococcus aureus. The infection is more common in children than adults. Common symptoms include red sores on the face -- particularly around the nose and mouth.
Altabax works by blocking the synthesis of proteins that are critical for bacterial growth. Since it only works on certain types of bacteria, your doctor may need to test the infection to identify the bacteria causing it.
Apply a thin layer to the affected area twice daily for up to five days. Do not stop the medication sooner than directed by your healthcare provider. Doing so may lead to drug resistance.
Wash the hands after application. For young children, a sterile bandage or gauze can be applied to the area to prevent them from touching the medication.
The active ingredient in Altabax is retapamulin.
Tell your doctor and pharmacist about all medications you are taking before starting Altabax. Common interactions may include:
Call your doctor and stop taking Altabax if you experience a severe skin reaction after starting Altabax.
Do not ingest Altabax.
This medication should not be used in the mouth, eyes, nose, or genitals.
Common side effects with this medication can include:
