Cefepime: Antibiotics (cephalosporins)

How Cefepime works

Cefepime is a powerful antibiotic with bacteriostatic properties. It kills the susceptible bacteria by blocking the bacterial cell wall synthesis. Unlike other cephalosporins, it can also remain unaffected by the toxic proteins produced by the bacteria (such as beta lactamases). As a result, it destroys the susceptible bacteria, prevents their further growth and multiplication and reduces the severity of the infection.

Common side effects of Cefepime

  • injection site reactions (pain, inflammation and swelling)
  • skin rash
