Azactam Medication

If you have an infection caused by certain bacteria, your healthcare provider may prescribe the antibiotic medication Azactam® (aztreonam injection). The drug is approved for use in adults and children as young as nine months old. It is specifically used to treat infections caused by a group of bacteria known as Gram-negative bacteria.
 
In order to help minimize risks and to ensure safe treatment with Azactam, drug information should be discussed with your healthcare provider ahead of time. Before you start using this medicine, you should let your healthcare provider know if you have kidney disease, liver disease, or any other medical issue. You should also tell him or her about all other medications you are taking, in order to help prevent drug interactions.
 
Azactam is injected into a vein or muscle every 6 to 12 hours for at least 48 hours. Side effects are possible and may include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
