      Used For

      Bacterial Infection

      How it works

      Cefuroxime is a bactericidal agent that acts by inhibition of bacterial cell wall synthesis. Cefuroxime has activity in the presence of some beta-lactamases, both penicillinases and cephalosporinases of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria.

      Drug Interactions

      Slight interference with copper reduction methods (Benedict’s, Fehling’s, Clinitest) may be observed. However, this should not lead to false-positive results, as may be experienced with some other cephalosporins , oral contraceptives .


      It is indicated for the treatment of infections before the infecting organism has been identified or when caused by sensitive bacteria .

      When not to Use

      Hypersensitivity to cephalosporin antibiotics.



      As with other antibiotics, use of Cefuroxime may result in the overgrowth of Candida. Prolonged use may also result in the overgrowth of other non-susceptible organisms (e.g. enterococci and Clostridium difficile), which may require interruption of treatment.


      Warning 1

      Special care is indicated in patients who have experienced an allergic reaction to penicillins or other beta-lactams.

      Warning 2

      Cephalosporin antibiotics at high dosage should be given with caution to patients receiving concurrent treatment with potent diuretics such as furosemide or aminoglycosides, as renal impairment has been reported with these combinations. Renal function should be monitored in these patients, the elderly, and those with pre-existing renal impairment .

      Warning 3

      With a sequential therapy regime the timing of change to oral therapy is determined by severity of the infection, clinical status of the patient and susceptibility of the pathogens involved. If there is no clinical improvement within 72 hours, then the parenteral course of treatment must be continued.
