Introduction of Supernem Injection

Supernem 500 mg Injection is an antibiotic used to treat a variety of serious infections in critically ill patients. It is effective in complicated infections of the urinary tract and abdominal organs. It may also be used to treat certain types of respiratory tract infections.

Supernem 500 mg Injection is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that kills many types of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.

These side effects are usually temporary and go away during treatment as your body adjusts to the medicine.
