Introduction to Stenpime 250mg Injection

Stenpime 250mg Injection contains Cefepime which is classified as an antibiotic and is prescribed for bacterial infections.

Cefepime operates similarly to others by disrupting the construction of bacterial cell walls. It achieves this by binding to specific enzymes crucial in the final steps of building the cell wall. This interference results in structural flaws in the wall, leading to the self destruction of the bacterial cell and, ultimately, the organism's demise Visualize it as interrupting the construction of a protective shield for the bacteria, causing it to disintegrate and perish. Cefepime is effective due to its interference with this vital bacterial process.

Cefepime will be provided by your doctor or nurse; self administration should be avoided. Trust your healthcare professional to administer the medicine; do not attempt self administration.

Common side effects of Cefepime may include nausea, stomach pain, indigestion, and diarrhea.

Cefepime may cause neurotoxicity, especially in patients with renal impairment Dosage adjustments may be necessary in such cases, and monitoring for neurological symptoms, such as seizures or encephalopathy, is recommended Antibiotic use, including Cefepime, may lead to the overgrowth of Clostridioides difficile bacteria, causing severe diarrhea and colitis. If diarrhea occurs during or after treatment, it should be evaluated for possible C difficile infection. Cefepime may interact with iron supplements and antacids, reducing its absorption. If iron supplements or antacids are necessary, they should be administered at least 2 hours before or after Cefepime.

If a dose of Cefepime is missed, take it when you remember If the next dose is close, skip the missed one and stay on the regular schedule. Avoid taking two doses at once. Consult your doctor for guidance on managing missed doses effectively.
