Meropenem is used in the treatment of various bacterial infections like pneumonia, cystic fibrosis (affecting lungs), meningitis (brain), urinary tract infection, infection in the abdomen, skin and soft tissues.
Meropenem is a broad-spectrum carbapenem antibiotic which is active against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. It exerts its action by penetrating bacterial cells readily and interfering with the synthesis of vital cell wall components, which leads to cell death.
