INTRODUCTION

ARODCEFA INJECTION is a fixed-dose combination of cefepime and tazobactam which belongs to the group of medicines called antibiotics. It is used to treat several bacterial infections like lower respiratory tract infections such as pneumonia, acute bacterial exacerbation causing breathing difficulties, urinary tract infections, pyelonephritis, skin infections, abdominal and biliary tract infections, vaginal infections, bacteraemia, and bacterial meningitis in infants and children.

ARODCEFA INJECTION is also used along with other antibacterial agents in the management of neutropenia caused by bacterial infection. Pneumonia is an infection that causes inflammation in the air sac, producing a cough with phlegm and shortness of breath. Pyelonephritis is a urinary tract infection affecting the urinary bladder that later spreads to the kidneys.

Bacteremia is an infectious condition indicating the presence of bacteria in the bloodstream. Bacterial meningitis is an infection caused by bacteria in the region surrounding the brain. Neutropenic means low levels of neutrophils (a type of white blood cell) in our body.

ARODCEFA INJECTION should not be used in patients allergic to penicillin antibiotics, cefepime, tazobactam and other beta-lactam antibiotics. ARODCEFA INJECTION should be used with caution in patients with kidney and liver diseases. Avoid using other aminoglycoside antibiotics and diuretics, and ARODCEFA INJECTION.

HOW ARODCEFA INJECTION WORKS

ARODCEFA INJECTION works by destroying the bacterial growth responsible for causing infections. ARODCEFA INJECTION has two antibiotics cefepime a cephalosporin antibiotic and tazobactam a beta-lactam antibiotic. Cefepime works by interrupting wall formation by binding with the enzymes responsible for cell wall synthesis. This binding causes defects in the cell wall leading to cell death and causing the death of the organism. Tazobactam present in ARODCEFA INJECTION is responsible for the irreversible termination of enzymbeta-lactamasesases) that protect the organism from antibiotics. Tazobactam produces fewer anti-bacterial actions when given alone so it’s always used in combination with other antibiotics. Thus, both substances work by preventing cell growth and function inhibit biting bacterial growth.
