What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

Retapamulin is used to treat a certain skin infection (impetigo) caused by bacteria. It is an antibiotic that works by stopping the growth of certain bacteria (Staphylococcus and Streptococcus) on the skin.
How to Use Altabax
Use Altabax on the skin only. Clean and dry the affected area first. Then apply a small amount of ointment to the affected area, usually 2 times a day for 5 days or as directed by your doctor. Wash your hands after applying unless you are treating an area on the hands. Do not use Altabax around the eyes, nose, mouth, or vaginal area, or on large areas of skin, unless otherwise directed by your doctor. You may cover the treated area with a bandage/gauze. This may help prevent your child from accidentally getting the medication in their eyes, nose, or mouth. Use Altabax regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. Continue to use it for the full time prescribed. Stopping the medication too early may allow bacteria to continue to grow, which may result in a return of the infection. You should see some improvement (healed/dry sores, decreased redness) in 3 to 4 days. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve in 3 to 4 days.
Before using retapamulin, tell the doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Altabax may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Altabax, tell the doctor or pharmacist your medical history. Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). During pregnancy, Altabax should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is unknown if Altabax passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
If you miss a dose of Altabax, use it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Use your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions.
