      Claforan Iv/Im Precautions


      Prolonged use of medicine may result in the overgrowth of nonsusceptible organisms. Constant evaluation of the patient's condition is essential. If superinfection occurs, therapy should be discontinued and appropriate measures taken.

      Claforan Iv/Im Warnings

      Warning 1

      Cefotaxime Sodium should be prescribed with caution in individuals with a history of lower gastrointestinal disease, particularly colitis.

      Warning 2

      Cefotaxime, like other parenteral anti-infective drugs, may be locally irritating to tissues. In most cases, perivascular extravasation of cefotaxime responds to changing of the infusion site.

      Warning 3

      As with other ß-lactam antibiotics, granulocytopenia, leukopenia, neutropenia and, more rarely, bone marrow failure, pancytopenia, or agranulocytosis may develop during treatment with Cefotaxime. For courses of treatment lasting longer than 10 days, blood counts should therefore be monitored and treatment discontinuation should be considered in case of abnormal results .
