HEALTH HAZARD INFORMATION
The oxytetracycline component may be taken as non toxic.
Ethanolamine eye irritancy- 763 microgram severe
Sensitization - can occur to tetracyclines but is usually limited to urticarial type rashes
Eye contact - Flush eyes with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical advice.
Skin contact - Flush skin for 15 minutes with copious amounts of cold water . Remove and wash contaminated clothing before reuse.
Self Injection - Wash and disinfect self injection injuries. Seek medical advice if irritancy or an allergic response occurs.
Accidental self injection of any tetracycline injection may cause some local irritation in humans (or even thrombo-phlebitis if given intravenously). Haemopoeitic diseases occur in humans rarely. The injection of out of date material in humans causes Fanconi type symptoms due to degradation products.
The Fanconi symptoms, due to accidental self injection of out of date material, are reversible and include polyuria, polydipsia, nausea, proteinuria, glycosuria acidosis and hypocalcaemia.
Treat symptomatically any allergic reaction to tetracycline or any local irritancy caused by ethanolamine.

MEASURES IN CASE OF ACCIDENTS AND FIRES
Classification under the Transportation of Dangerous Goods
DG storage/transport in accordance with State and Territory regulations. This product is not subject to the requirements of the Australian Code for the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road and Rail. Product should be stored and handled in accordance with regulations governing Schedule 4 (prescription) drugs.
Dispose of unused or expired material in an authorised landfill.

product normally transported and stored. Prevent the spill spreading to contaminate other areas. Do not allow the product to contact skin or eyes. Wear rubber gloves for clean-up operations. Do not smoke or eat during clean-up operations. If contact occurs immediately wash off with soap and water.
Absorb into paper towel, hydrated lime, soil or sand, depending on quantity involved. Dispose of
contaminated absorbent material in an appropriate
manner. Rinse area of spill with detergent and water.
On completion of clean-up wash all exposed skin areas and any contaminated protective clothing. Inform the local water authority if large amounts enter the drainage system.
In fire incidents toxic fumes of nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides, carbon monoxide may be formed.
Hazardous Decomposition Do not use expired, pre-used or past date material Products:
Because the vapour pressure of ethanolamine is low, spillages must be cleared promptly before significant amounts of ethanolamine are volatilized.
There is no data on ecological effects. It is not anticipated
there will be any effect on the environment as a consequence of normal use. Accidental spillage of large shipments could be a problem as the entry into sewerage treatment plants of large volumes of antibiotics may inhibit processing. Thus, disposal of large volumes into drainage sewerage system of local councils should be avoided if possible.
