How Primegard Injection works

Primegard 125 mg/500 mg Injection is a combination of two medicines: Amikacin and Cefepime. Amikacin is an antibiotic which stops bacterial growth by preventing the synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. Cefepime is also an antibiotic which works by preventing the formation of the bacterial protective covering which is essential for the survival of bacteria in the human body. Together, they eradicate your infection effectively.
