I'm allergic to sulfa medications. I have an intestinal parasite. Doctor wants to treat with paromomycin. I need to know if this is sulfa-based? ## Hello, Alicia! How are you? No, it isn't, but that doesn't mean you may not discover that you are also allergic to it or some other medications. Generally, being allergic to one raises the chance that you may be allergic to others.

What are the side effects of paromomycin if overused or used wrongly? ## Hi, Joy! How are you? Paromomycin is an antibiotic that's used to treat various types of infections, mainly intestinal infections. And like any other antibiotic, improper use or overuse causes the risk of someone's developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. This could put them in a lot of danger if they develop any infections in the future. Thus, it's best to only take these medications exactly as prescribed by your doctor.
