Introduction to Xotent SB 1000mg/500mg Injection

Xotent SB 1000mg/500mg Injection  belongs to the class of medications which combines Cefoperazone, a third generation cephalosporin antibiotic, with Sulbactam, a beta lactamase inhibitor. It is used to treat various bacterial infections, including respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections, skin and soft tissue infections, and intraabdominal infections.
