Q: How will ARODCEFA INJECTION treat my infection?
A: 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 cell 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 the death of the organism. Tazobactam, present in ARODCEFA INJECTION, is responsible for the irreversible termination of enzymes (beta-lactamases) 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 by inhibiting bacterial growth.
Q: How long will ARODCEFA INJECTION take to treat bacterial infections?
A: ARODCEFA INJECTION will start working once it is injected into the bloodstream. It will work faster compared with oral antibiotics as it is injected directly into the bloodstream. However, the full course of antibiotics should be given to obtaining its efficacy. Your doctor will decide the dose adjustments and termination of the medicine depending on your health condition.
