Frequently asked questions about Merotec Products

Frequently asked questions about Meropenem

Q. My friend has a history of epilepsy and she was on valproic acid while receiving treatment with Merotec 1000mg Injection, still, she had an episode of seizure. Why?
Any previous history with any other medication should be informed to the doctor before starting your treatment with Merotec 1000mg Injection. Medicines like Merotec 1000mg Injection can interfere with valproic acid which is used for the treatment of epilepsy, making it less effective. So, the reason for the recent episode of seizure could be the result of such drug interaction. Generally, in cases like these, the doctor prescribes a different medicine.
Q. Even though Merotec 1000mg Injection is used for skin infections, can it cause any skin-related problems?
Serious skin reactions are rare, but some have been reported with the use of Merotec 1000mg Injection. Therefore, before starting the treatment inform your doctor if you are allergic to any medicine or antibiotic. Serious skin reactions are a type of allergic reaction. But, if not properly managed then they can endanger life. So, if you notice any rash along with fever or peeling of the skin, discontinue the medication and inform your doctor.

Merotec 1000mg Injection is a broad-spectrum antibiotic which means it can treat a variety of bacterial infections.

There are reports which suggest the occurrence of seizures or fits with the use of Merotec 1000mg Injection. However, fits are more likely to occur in patients with a history of seizures or a brain lesion (wound, ulcer, abscess or tumor) or patients having bacterial meningitis or compromised kidney function. Consult your doctor to understand the exact reason.

Q. What if Merotec 1000mg Injection does not suit me?
It is common to have minor side effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and headache with the use of Merotec 1000mg Injection. However, these symptoms generally settle down with continued medication as the body adapts to the medicine. If the side effects bother you, inform your doctor. The doctor will suggest an alternative medicine if required. Serious side effects with Merotec 1000mg Injection are very rare. In case you develop serious side effects, seek immediate medical advice.
Q. Does it matter if I miss or stop Merotec 1000mg Injection?
You mustn't stop the treatment without consulting your doctor. Stopping the treatment may bring back the infection or you may develop resistance to Merotec 1000mg Injection.
