Cefpirome is used in the treatment of bacterial infections
How it works
Cefpirome is an antibiotic. It kills the bacteria by attacking their cell wall. Specifically, it prevents the synthesis of a substance in the cell wall called peptidoglycan, which provides the required strength to the bacterial cell wall for the survival of the bacteria in the human body.

- Discontinue the use of cefpirome if you develop severe allergic reactions.
- Inform your doctor if you are taking penicillins, as taking cephalosporins with penicillins may cause allergic reactions.
- You may be monitored with renal function tests during treatment with combinations of cefpirome and furosemide or ethacrynic acid type and aminoglycosides antibiotics.
- Take precautions while using cefpirome for longer duration (>10 days) along with beta-lactam antibiotics as you may develop granulocytopenia and, more rarely, agranulocytosis. You may be monitored with regular blood test.
- Do not take live bacterial vaccines (BCG, typhoid) while on cefpirome therapy.
- You must be aware that severe and persistent diarrhea may occur with cefpriome during treatment or in the weeks following discontinuation.
