Bethkis Medication Information

As a type of antibiotic, Bethkis® (tobramycin inhalation solution) is prescribed to treat a certain type of bacterial infection in people with cystic fibrosis. Specifically, it is approved to treat an infection caused by the bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa in adults and children as young as six years old.
 
Bethkis comes as a liquid that is used in a nebulizer to make a mist that is inhaled. It is used twice daily for 28 days, followed by a 28-day break before starting this cycle again.
 
If your healthcare provider recommends treatment with Bethkis, he or she will need information on your medical history and any other drugs, vitamins, or supplements you are using. Some of the potential side effects include abnormal breathing sounds, voice changes, and worsening lung problems. Talk to your healthcare provider before using this product if you are pregnant or have problems with your kidneys or hearing.
