AdvaCare is a GMP manufacturer of Cefoperazone Sodium powder for injections.
Cefoperazone is a third-generation cephalosporin antibiotic, marketed by Pfizer under the name Cefobid. It is one of few cephalosporin antibiotics effective in treating Pseudomonas bacterial infections which are otherwise resistant to these antibiotics.
Cefoperazone is also sold as a co-formulation with sulbactam. Cefoperazone exerts its bactericidal effect by inhibiting the bacterial cell wall synthesis, and sulbactam acts as a beta-lactamase inhibitor, to increase the antibacterial activity of cefoperazone against beta-lactamase-producing organisms.
As with all pharmaceuticals, some unwanted effects can occur from the use of cefoperazone sodium powder for injections. Always consult a doctor or health care professional for medical advice before use.
Common side effects include diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, hypersensitivity skin reactions including rash, injection site reactions (pain, swelling, or redness), or reversible low white blood cell count (neutropenia). Cefoperazone sodium is administered by intravenous (IV) or intramuscular injection. Cefoperazone may interact with blood-thinning medications such as Coumadin or other antibiotics, like penicillin.
For a comprehensive list of all possible effects, consult your doctor.
If any symptom persists or gets worse, or you notice any other symptom, then please call your doctor immediately.
