Introduction

Kiviza 1gm Injection is used in combination with other antibiotics for the treatment of various types of serious bacterial infections such as pneumonia, skin and soft tissue infections, urinary tract infections, and others.

Kiviza 1gm Injection is a type of antibiotic belonging to a class known as beta-lactamase inhibitors. This medicine helps to make the bacteria more sensitive to antibiotic activity. It is given by drip (intravenous infusion) or by direct injection into a vein, under the supervision of a healthcare professional. It should be used regularly at evenly spaced intervals, as per the schedule prescribed by your doctor.

Do not skip any doses and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. Stopping the medicine too early may lead to the infection returning or worsening. The total duration of treatment and precise dosage will be decided by your doctor, depending on the type of infection that you have and how well you respond to the medication.

Before taking this medicine, inform your doctor if you have a history of an allergic reaction to this medicine or penicillin group of medicines. Diarrhea and local pain, swelling or redness at the site of injection may be seen as side effects in some patients. These are temporary and usually resolve quickly. Consult your doctor if any of these side effects persist or if your condition worsens. This medicine is generally regarded as safe to use during pregnancy if used under a doctor’s supervision.
