About FUTAZ INJECTION

FUTAZ INJECTION belongs to the 'Antibiotics' class of drugs, primarily used to treat bacterial infections. It is used to treat various hospital-acquired and ventilator-associated pneumonia, urinary tract infections, intra-abdominal infections, skin and soft tissue infections (like diabetic foot infections) and uterine infections. Bacterial infection occurs when harmful bacteria grow in the body and causes illness. It can infect any part of the body and multiply very quickly.

FUTAZ INJECTION contains two medicines, namely: Piperacillin (Penicillin antibiotic) and Tazobactam (beta-lactamase inhibitor). Piperacillin belongs to the class of 'Penicillin antibiotics.' It has bactericidal (ability to kill bacteria) activity against gram-positive and gram-negative aerobic (requires oxygen to survive) and anaerobic (survives with little or no oxygen) bacteria. Piperacillin acts by binding to the penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) inside the bacterial cell wall and inhibits its cell wall synthesis. Tazobactam is a beta-lactamase inhibitor. Beta-lactamases are the enzymes produced by bacteria to gain multi-resistance to β-lactam antibiotics, such as penicillins and cephalosporins. Tazobactam prevents the breakdown of other antibiotics by beta-lactamase enzyme producing organisms. In FUTAZ INJECTION, Tazobactam works by preventing bacteria from destroying Piperacillin.

FUTAZ INJECTION is available in the form of intravenous injection. Like all medicines, FUTAZ INJECTION also causes side effects, although not everybody gets them. Common side effects of FUTAZ INJECTION include nausea, constipation, diarrhoea, headache, and trouble sleeping. If any of these effects persist or worsen, seek medical advice promptly. 

Brief your medical history to the doctor if you have any allergic reactions to antibiotics. Please inform your doctor if you have any liver, kidney diseases, bleeding disorders, and fits. Do not use FUTAZ INJECTION while having vaccinations with live bacterial vaccines (typhoid vaccine) since FUTAZ INJECTION may affect vaccines' activity. FUTAZ INJECTION should be used during pregnancy only if the doctor advised you. It is also excreted into breast milk in small amounts. Hence, it is recommended to consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding before taking FUTAZ INJECTION.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Bacterial infection occurs when harmful bacteria grow in the body and causes illness. It can infect any part of the body and multiply very quickly. Bacteria occur in three basic shapes: spherical, rod and spiral-shaped. Bacteria may be gram-positive (have thick cell wall) or gram-negative (do not have a cell wall). Some common symptoms of a bacterial infection include cough, fever and tiredness. 

Hospital-acquired pneumonia/ nosocomial pneumonia: It is a lower respiratory infection of the lungs that occurs during a hospital stay.

Ventilator-associated pneumonia: A lung infection occurs in people who are on mechanical ventilation breathing machines in hospitals.

FAQs

FUTAZ INJECTION contains Piperacillin and Tazobactam. Piperacillin inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis, and Tazobactam prevents the bacteria from gaining resistance against Piperacillin. Thus FUTAZ INJECTION helps in treating various bacterial infections.

FUTAZ INJECTION should be used with proper caution and doctor consultation if you have any cystic fibrosis (damaged lungs and digestive system), kidney disease, fits, colitis (inflammation of the colon), bleeding disorders, heart or liver diseases and undergoing dialysis.

FUTAZ INJECTION can affect live vaccines like typhoid vaccine and decrease their effectiveness. Please consult a doctor before you start FUTAZ INJECTION if you are undergoing any vaccinations.

It is recommended to complete the course of FUTAZ INJECTION even if you feel better as it is an antibiotic, and stopping it midway may lead to recurring infections. Continue taking FUTAZ INJECTION for as long as your doctor has prescribed to treat your condition effectually.
