    See prescribing information for full details.

    Drug interactions

    Antagonism has been demonstrated in vitro between erythromycin, lincomycin, chloramphenicol and clindamycin.
    Therefore erythromycin, lincomycin, chloramphenicol and clindamycin should not be used concomitantly with Benzamycin, although no studies have been conducted testing for antagonism of Benzamycin with these antibiotics.

    Pregnancy and Lactation

    Pregnancy: There are no well-controlled trials in pregnant women with BENZAMYCIN Topical Gel. It also is not known whether BENZAMYCIN Topical Gel can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproductive capacity. BENZAMYCIN Topical Gel should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.
    Nursing Women: It is not known whether BENZAMYCIN Topical Gel is excreted in human milk after topical application. However, erythromycin is excreted in human milk following oral and parenteral erythromycin administration.
    Therefore, caution should be exercised when erythromycin is administered to a nursing woman.
