What should I avoid while taking Cubicin?

To prevent drug interactions while on Cubicin, you should make sure that the doctor knows if you take blood thinners or cholesterol medications, and if you receive tobramycin from other doctors. Avoid driving or other dangerous tasks until you know whether Cubicin will make you dizzy or drowsy. Be wary of drinking alcohol while on Cubicin, as this could worsen your drowsiness or dizziness. If you develop diarrhea, especially bloody or watery stools, be sure to tell your doctor about it. Do not self-treat.
