Each 1 g contains:

 Colistin (as Sulphate)      10 M.I.U.

It's indicated for the treatment of gastrointestinal infections caused by non-invasive Escherichia coli susceptible to Colistin in calves, lambs and poultry.

Administered orally via drinking water.

Calves and Lambs: 1 g / 100 kg bodyweight daily for 3 – 5 consecutive days.

Poultry: 2 g / 50 Liters (40 g / 1000 Liter [ 40 g /1 m3 ]) of drinking water daily for 3 – 5 consecutive days.

Medicated water should be freshly prepared daily.

-Do not use in case of hypersensitivity to polypeptide antibiotics.

-Do not use in case of resistance to the polymyxin.

-Should not be administered to animals suffering from manifest renal dysfunction .

-Do not use in horses, particularly in foals, since Colistin, due to a shift in the gastrointestinal microflora balance could lead to the development of antimicrobial associated colitis (Colitis X), typically associated with Clostridium difficile, which may be fatal.

-In the case of newborn animals and of animals with severe gastrointestinal and renal disorders the absorption of colistin may be increased. Neuro- and nephrotoxic alterations may occur.
