Gentamicins (Gentamicin)

Also known as Gentamicin, Gentamycin, Gentamycin Complex, Garamycin, Genoptic, Genoptic S.O.P., U-Gencin, and Garamicin

Gentamicin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic, used to treat many types of bacterial infections, particularly those caused by Gram-negative organisms. However, gentamicin is not used for Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Neisseria meningitidis or Legionella pneumophila. Gentamicin is also ototoxic and nephrotoxic, with this toxicity remaining a major problem in clinical use.
