Who Makes Cefepime?

Cefepime (Maxipime®) is a type of antibiotic prescribed to treat certain types of bacterial infections in adults and children as young as two months old. If your healthcare provider recommends this drug, you may be wondering who makes cefepime and whether there is a generic version?
 
Brand-name cefepime (sold under the name Maxipime) was made by Bristol-Myers Squibb Company but is no longer available. However, generic versions are still available and are made by various manufacturers.
 
Generic Maxipime is made by several different companies, including:
 
  • Apotex, Corp.
  • Sagent Pharmaceuticals
  • Sandoz, Inc.
 
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined that all of the generic cefepime versions currently available should be equivalent to Maxipime. However, these generics may have different inactive ingredients than the brand-name drug.
