What does Teterous capsule contain?
Teterous capsule is a medication used to treat a wide variety of infections, including acne. It contains the antibiotic tetracycline which works by stopping the growth of bacteria. This antibiotic treats only bacterial infections. It will not work for viral infections (such as the common cold, or flu).
In some cases, Teterousis used when penicillin or another antibiotic cannot be used to treat serious infections such as Anthrax, Listeria, Clostridium, Actinomyces, and others. However, taking Teterous capsule when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections. Teterous can also be used in combination with anti-ulcer medications to treat certain types of stomach ulcers.
