Frequently asked questions about Meropenem

Q. Is Micropenam a strong antibiotic? Which infections does it treat?
Micropenam is a broad-spectrum antibiotic. This means that it is used to treat a variety of bacterial infections. It is used to treat infection affecting the lungs (pneumonia) and complicated infections of the urinary tract, abdomen, and skin and soft tissue infections. It also treats bacterial infection of the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord (meningitis) and infections that occur during or after delivery.
Q. Is Micropenam effective against bacteria only? Can it be used for any type of bacterial infection?
Yes, Micropenam is effective against bacteria only but not all bacteria. It is not effective against virus or fungi. Micropenam is effective against some bacteria which include Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, S. pyogenes, S. viridans group, etc. Micropenam should only be used to treat or prevent infections against which it is effective.
Q. My cousin was receiving Micropenam for severe skin infection when she had a fit and Micropenam was stopped. Was the fit due to Micropenam?
Seizures or fits have been reported with the use of Micropenam. 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.
Q. For how long will I need to take Micropenam?
The length of the treatment will be decided by your doctor, depending on your general health, the type of infection you have and how well you respond to Micropenam.
Q. What if Micropenam does not suit me?
It is common to have minor side effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and headache but generally these settle down. If the side effects bother you, tell your doctor immediately. The doctor will give you an alternative medicine. Serious side effects are very rare. In case you develop serious side effects, seek immediate medical advice.
Q. Does it matter if I miss or stop Micropenam?
It is important that you do not stop the treatment without consulting your doctor. Stopping the treatment may bring back the infection or you may develop resistance to Micropenam. The same applies if you are forgetful in taking the suggested doses. It is recommended that you do not miss doses. If you do, take the missed dose as soon as you can and take the next dose as planned so that you stick to the same overall daily dose.
