      How it works

      Meropenem exerts its bactericidal activity by inhibiting bacterial cell wall synthesis in Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria through binding to penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs). Meropenem binds to PBPs 2, 3 and 4 of Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa; and PBPs 1, 2 and 4 of Staphylococcus aureus.

      Meronem Iv Precautions

      Precaution

      The selection of meropenem to treat an individual patient should take into account the appropriateness of using a carbapenem antibacterial agent based on factors such as severity of the infection, the prevalence of resistance to other suitable antibacterial agents and the risk of selecting for carbapenem-resistant bacteria.

      Meronem Iv Warnings

      Warning 1

      As with all beta-lactam antibiotics, serious and occasionally fatal hypersensitivity reactions have been reported. Before initiating therapy with meropenem, careful inquiry should be made concerning previous hypersensitivity reactions to beta-lactam antibiotics. If a severe allergic reaction occurs, meropenem should be discontinued and appropriate measures should be taken.

      Warning 2

      Seizures have infrequently been reported during treatment with carbapenems, including meropenem.

      Warning 3

      Hepatic function should be closely monitored during treatment with meropenem due to the risk of hepatic toxicity (hepatic dysfunction with cholestasis and cytolysis).
