Had an infection (stye on my eyelid) and was given Chloramphenicol cream, how safe is this for people with CML?
Adverse side effects:
The most serious adverse effect associated with chloramphenicol treatment is bone marrow toxicity, which may occur in two distinct forms: bone marrow suppression, which is a direct toxic effect of the drug and is usually reversible, and aplastic anemia, which is idiosyncratic (rare, unpredictable, and unrelated to dose) and in general fatal. (It was considered a rare allergic reaction)
Im guessing the side effects more likely will occur after using Chloramphenicol in tablet form and over a longer period of time, but it doesnt sound like a good choice for people with CML.
My stye was almost gone, so I stopped taking it right away, ill use some home remedies instead if it comes back.
I had a checkup after one week use of Chloramphenicol, and all my numbers were good, in fact they were better than earlier, but i stopped using it anyway.
Better safe than sorry.
