Medication Description: Sultamicillin (Sultamicillin)
Combination drug containing 2: 1 ampicillin-sodium and sulbactam-sodium.
Synonyms: Ampisid, Sulacillin, Sultasin, Unazin, Ampisid, Sulacillin, Unasyn.
Sulbactam sodium, the sodium salt of sulfonate, is a derivative of the main nucleus of penicillins.
White crystalline powder; easily soluble in water.
Sulbactam-sodium does not have a pronounced antibacterial activity, but irreversibly inhibits b-lactamase (the enzyme that destroys the b-lactam core of penicillins). When used together with penicillins, sulbactam protects the latter from hydrolysis and inactivation.
Sultamicillin is a highly effective drug that acts on gram-positive and gram-negative aerobes and anaerobes, including penicillin-resistant strains.
Unazin is used for pneumonia, bronchitis, otitis, sinusitis, purulent surgical infections (abscesses, phlegmon, osteomyelitis, etc.), peritonitis, urological and gynecological infections, for the prevention of postoperative purulent complications, for gonorrhea and other infections.
Enter intramuscularly or intravenously. The dose for adults is from 1.5 to 12 g per day in 3 - 4 administrations (the maximum daily dose of 12 g corresponds to 8 g of ampicillin sodium salt and 4 g of sulbactam-sodium). Children are administered at the rate of 150 mg per 1 kg of body weight per day in 3 - 4 administrations (to a newborn in 2 administrations).
For possible complications and contraindications, see Ampicillin.
