Precautions and Warnings

There are a number of precautions and warnings to be aware of before taking Achromycin. Some of these include:
 
  • Achromycin may decrease the effectiveness of birth control pills. If you are using birth control pills, talk to your healthcare provider about other options for contraception.
     
  • Achromycin is considered a pregnancy Category D medication. This means that it has been studied in pregnant women and poses a significant risk to an unborn baby. Discuss the safety of this drug with your healthcare provider before using Achromycin.
