Mepron Drug Information
Atovaquone is used to prevent or treat a serious lung infection called Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP). Mepron helps to stop infection symptoms such as fever, cough, tiredness, and shortness of breath.
How to Use Mepron
Shake the bottle gently but well before each dose. Carefully measure the dose using a special measuring device/spoon. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose. To treat PCP, take Mepron by mouth with food as directed by your doctor, usually twice daily for 21 days. To prevent PCP, take Mepron with food usually once a day as directed. Atovaquone must be taken with food so your body can absorb as much of the medication as possible so it can work well. For children, the Dosage of Mepron is also based on age and weight. Mepron works best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level. If you take Mepron twice a day, take it at evenly spaced intervals about 12 hours apart. If you take Mepron once a day, take it at the same time each day. Continue to take Mepron for the full time prescribed, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may result in a return of the infection. Tell your doctor if you develop symptoms of PCP, or if your condition lasts or gets worse.
Before taking atovaquone, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Mepron may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Mepron, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,liver disease, kidney disease, stomach/intestinal problems that may affect absorption of atovaquone (such as long-term diarrhea, malabsorption syndrome). Mepron may make you dizzy. Alcohol or marijuana (cannabis) can make you more dizzy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs alertness until you can do it safely. Limit alcoholic beverages. Talk to your doctor if you are using marijuana (cannabis). Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). During pregnancy, Mepron should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is unknown if Mepron passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
If you miss a dose of Mepron, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Take 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. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval. Other medications can decrease the level of atovaquone in your body, which may affect how atovaquone works. Examples include efavirenz, metoclopramide, rifampin, rifabutin, tetracycline, among others.

Side effects are physical, mental or emotional symptoms which occur in addition to or outside of the desired effect of a therapeutic treatment such as an over-the-counter or prescribed drug or medication. Side effects from Mepron may occur at the beginning or at the end of treatment and may also depend on the length of time an individual remains on the treatment. Side effects, also known as adverse effects, are generally more likely to occur when starting treatment.

Further, side effects from Mepron may also occur as a result of an interaction with certain herbal supplements, foods or drinks.
