Before using procaine penicillin, tell your doctor if you have asthma or a history of allergies, or kidney disease.

Tell your doctor about all other medications you use, especially gout medication, a blood thinner, a diuretic, a tetracycline antibiotic, or a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).
Procaine penicillin can make birth control pills less effective. Ask your doctor about using a non-hormone method of birth control (such as a condom, diaphragm, spermicide) to prevent pregnancy while using procaine penicillin. Hormonal forms of contraception (such as birth control pills, injections, implants, skin patches, and vaginal rings) may not be effective enough to prevent pregnancy during your treatment.
After you have finished your treatment with procaine penicillin, your doctor may want to do tests to make sure your infection has completely cleared up.
