Product Information

  • Description

    Meropenem is a powerful antibiotic from the β-lactam family, used to treat severe infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria. When administered, it is absorbed into the bloodstream, where it exerts its antimicrobial action by inhibiting multiple enzymes involved in cell wall synthesis, specifically EP-transferase, leading to imbalances and a weakened cell wall that eventually ruptures, killing the bacterial cell. Its broad spectrum of activity against resistant strains makes it a crucial tool in treating severe infections, but resistance can still occur, requiring surveillance and research. It is always used judiciously due to its potential for adverse effects and the need to preserve its efficacy for severe infections. Meropenem is primarily eliminated through the kidneys and is relatively large, resulting in protein binding in serum, which reduces its free concentration and neurotoxicity.

    Meropenem is rarely fatal, but overdose can lead to harmful symptoms that require urgent medical attention. Should an overdose occur, the patient will likely experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and decreased blood pressure that could cause long-term harm and complications if not properly addressed. To treat these side effects, excessive hydration and the possibility of dialysis may be required. For future prevention, the drug dosage will be carefully managed to avoid a similar outcome.

  • Missed Dose

    When it comes to dealing with a missed dose of medication like Meropenem, it is important to remember that there are no hard and fast rules, and it all depends on the specific medication and the patient's individual situation. In general, it is safe to take the missed dose as soon as possible unless it is almost time for the next scheduled dose. In this case, it is better just to skip the missed dose and resume the regular dosing schedule. However, to be absolutely sure, it is always best to follow the specific instructions given by a doctor or medical professional. Following the dosing instructions provided by qualified medical personnel is always the best choice, and patients should speak to them about their specific situation when dealing with a missed dose. Doing so will allow patients to make informed decisions based on expert advice and guidance that takes into account their personal circumstances. It is crucial to avoid consuming extra doses or increasing the dosage without medical supervision. This could potentially lead to harmful side effects or even a dangerous overdose. Remember, when in doubt, always consult with a trusted medical professional for the best advice and guidance for your unique situation.
