Description of the medicine: Sultamicillin (Sultamicillin)
A combined preparation containing ampicillin sodium and sulbactam sodium in a 2: 1 ratio.
Synonyms: Ampisid, Sulacillin, Sultasin, Unazin, Ampisid, Sulacillin, Unasyn.
Sulbactam sodium - the sodium salt of sulfonpenicillate - is a derivative of the main core of penicillins.
White crystalline powder; easily soluble in water.
Sulbactam sodium does not have pronounced antibacterial activity, but irreversibly inhibits β-lactamase (an enzyme that destroys the β-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.
Unazine is used for pneumonia, bronchitis, otitis media, 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 injections (the maximum daily dose of 12 g corresponds to 8 g of sodium ampicillin and 4 g of sulbactam sodium). Children are administered at a rate of 150 mg per 1 kg of body weight per day in 3 to 4 administrations (for infants in 2 administrations).
For possible complications and contraindications, see Ampicillin.
