Mylan 106 Pill
What is Mylan 106? What kind of medication is the round yellow pill with "MYLAN 106" debossed on the front side?
Mylan 106 is generic Erythromycin stearate 250 mg pill. The medication is also widely known as brand-name Ilosone. Erythromycin (Ilosone) is a macrolide antibiotic used to treat many different types of infections caused by bacteria. Macrolide antibiotics, including Erythromycin, suppress sensitive bacteria by reducing the production of important proteins needed by the bacteria to survive.
Usual doses of Erythromycin stearate depend on the type of infection and may differ, but they normally recommend taking 250 mg to 500 mg orally every 6 hours (that is 1 or two Mylan 106 pill taken every 6 hours). For more details, you should consult your doctor.
Remember that Erythromycin will not treat a viral infection such as the common cold or flu!
You benefit directly when Mylan Generics are used in place of name-brand medicines. First, because you will be receiving a high quality medicine, and second, because Mylan Generics, including Mylan 106 erythromycin pills, are generally more affordable than famous brand names.
The manufacturing facilities of all pharmaceutical companies - those making name-brand drugs and those making equivalent alternatives - are routinely inspected by the FDA. These savings are the result of Mylan's good, old-fashioned, American competition. As you can well appreciate, when there is more than one company manufacturing and/or selling the same product, the competition generally results in cost savings for the consumer.
However, you may try and order Erythromycin stearate marketed by other manufacturers, too!
