Tavanic in an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections. It can cause yellowing of the skin and eyes, liver damage in few people. A medicine is prescribed by a doctor only if the benefits outweigh the risks. If you are concerned it is advisable to contact your attending doctor and clarify your concerns. He may suggest an alternative medicine if needed. Do keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!
