Mupirocin Drug Information

The prescription medicine (Bactroban®) is approved to treat several different bacterial infections. It is particularly effective against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). In fact, the antibiotic is often given to healthcare workers and adults in institutionalized settings during a MRSA outbreak to help prevent the spread of disease.
 
Mupirocin is not expected to react with other drugs; however, your healthcare provider still needs a current list of all medications you are taking (including nonprescription forms). This information can help ensure that mupirocin is right for you. If you are a woman, you should also tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
