What should I know about paromomycin before taking it?

There are certain precautions you should be aware of before taking paromomycin. Before starting on the drug, tell your doctor if you've had health issues with your stomach, intestines, liver, or kidneys. This can include disease, blockage, or ulcers. Your doctor can let you know if these conditions have made it unsafe for you to take paromomycin. Also inform your doctor if you are pregnant or breast-feeding, since paromomycin may have an impact on a developing fetus or nursing infant. Paromomycin contains the yellow dye tartrazine, so those with allergies to the dye may want to avoid it.
