    This is thee most toxic ointment I have ever used causing nausea, headache, extreme burning of throat and esophagus, and uncontrollable shivering from being extremely cold. I will make sure that everyone I know does not use this. There are safer alternative remedies that can be used. When is the medical community going to wake up to how they are hurting us.

    I developed a serious bacterial infection and this drug was one of the many drugs prescribed to me. The side effects were mild and the drug was easy to administer. Upon taking the medicine I would chew a piece of gum to keep me from gagging or chocking on the awful taste.

    I have recurrent nose infection. I have not filled this Rx as it calls for mixing the ointment with water and salt and irragating your nose. Too complicated and ointment and water does not mix. Any suggestions.

    Comment:
    I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY BACTROBAN WAS PRESCRIBED FOR ME. I HAVE ALLERGIES AND NASAL PASSAGES ARE VERY DRY. ALLERGIST DID NOT TELL ME DRYNESS IS CAUSED BY BACTERIA. IS THIS PRESCRIBED AS A PREVENTIVE MEASURE TO KEEP ME FROM GETTING A BACTERIAL INFECTION? OTHER SITES STATE IT IS USED FOR IMPETAGO RASH???? PHARMACIST TELLS ME THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS BACTROBAN NASAL THAT THERE IS ONLY THE CREAM ... Show Full Comment
