Having gone through the side effects of Kanamycin, it is scary to know that I am going through therapy using this drug for continuous administration for 240days of daily injection.
For one thing, take probiotics daily. They recommend short term use only as it can cause kidney damage and hearing loss. I would certainly be sure to get blood work to monitor my kidneys on a regular basis. There isn't alot you can do to avoid the other side effects. The probiotics will help fight getting diarrhea, or a yeast infection.
