Before Using This Medicine

In deciding to use a medicine, the risks of using the medicine must be weighed against the good it will do. This is a decision you and your doctor will make. For nasal mupirocin, the following should be considered:

Allergies—Tell your doctor if you have ever had any unusual or allergic reaction to mupirocin. Also tell your health care professional if you are allergic to any other substances, such as foods, preservatives, or dyes.

Pregnancy—Nasal mupirocin has not been studied in pregnant women. However, nasal mupirocin has not been shown to cause birth defects or other problems in animal studies.

Breast-feeding—It is not known whether nasal mupirocin passes into breast milk. Although most medicines pass into breast milk in small amounts, many of them may be used safely while breast-feeding. Mothers who are using this medicine and who wish to breast-feed should discuss this with their doctor.

Children—Studies on this medicine have been done only in adult patients and there is no specific information comparing use of nasal mupirocin in children with use in other age groups. However, a study in newborns and infants found that significant amounts of nasal mupirocin were absorbed into the body.

Older adults—No information is available comparing use of nasal mupirocin in the elderly with use in other adults. However, it has not been reported to cause different side effects or other problems in older people than it does in younger adults.

Other medicines—Although certain medicines should not be used together at all, in other cases two different medicines may be used together even if an interaction might occur. In these cases, your doctor may want to change the dose, or other precautions may be necessary. When you are using nasal mupirocin, it is especially important that your health care professional know if you are using any of the following:

  • Other medicines used in the nose—Use at the same time as intranasal mupirocin is not recommended

Proper Use of This Medicine

To use the nasal ointment

  • First, wash your hands.
  • Apply approximately 1/2 of the ointment from the single-use tube directly from the tube into one nostril. Then apply the remainder of the ointment directly into the other nostril.
  • Close your nostrils by pressing the sides of the nose together and then releasing them. Do this over and over again for approximately one minute. You may also press the sides of the nose together and gently massage the nose. These methods will help spread the medicine throughout the inside of the nostrils.
  • Discard the tube after using. The tube only has enough medicine for one dose in each nostril.
  • Be careful not to touch your eyes.
  • Immediately after using the nose ointment, wash your hands to remove any medicine that may be on them.

Dosing—The dose of nasal mupirocin will be different for different patients. Follow your doctor"s orders or the directions on the label . The following information includes only the average doses of nasal mupirocin. If your dose is different, do not change it unless your doctor tells you to do so.

  • For nasal dosage form (nasal ointment):
    • To kill Staphylococcus aureus (“staph”) bacteria in the nose:
      • Adults and children 12 years of age and older—Approximately 1/2 of the ointment from a single-use tube squeezed into each nostril two times a day (morning and evening) for five days.
      • Children less than 12 years of age—Use and dose must be determined by your doctor.

Missed dose—If you miss a dose of this medicine, use it as soon as possible. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not double doses.

Storage—To store this medicine:

  • Keep out of the reach of children.
  • Store away from heat and direct light.
  • Do not store in the bathroom, near the kitchen sink, or in other damp places. Heat or moisture may cause the medicine to break down.
