It is also indicated for the treatment of mycoplasma pneumonia.
As with all drugs, the use of Lincomycin Injectable is contraindicated in animals previously found to be hypersensitive to the drug.

The intramuscular administration to swine may cause a transient diarrhea or loose stools. Although this effect has rarely been reported, one must be alert to the possibility that it may occur. Should this occur, it is important that the necessary steps be taken to prevent the effects of dehydration.
