Drug Mode of Action ::
Streptomycin is bactericidal which inhibits bacterial protein synthesis. Susceptible organisms include Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Pasteurella pestis, P.tularensis, Brucella, H.influenzae, H.ducreyi, Klebsiella pneumonia, Escherichia coli, Proteus spp., Aerobacter aerogenes, Streptococcus faecalis, and Streptococcus viridans.
Drug Interactions ::
H1-receptor blockers may mask early signs of ototoxicity. May reduce excretion of zalcitabine. May inhibit ?-galactosidase activity. Potentially Fatal: Potentiates nephrotoxicity produced by other aminoglycosides, vancomycin and some cephalosporins. Potentiates ototoxicity produced by other aminoglycosides, ethacrynic acid, mannitol, furosemide and other diuretics.
