About Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj

Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj belongs to the class of medications called ‘antibiotics’ used to treat bacterial infections. Bacterial infections are caused by the multiplication of harmful bacteria inside or on the body. These harmful bacteria produce chemicals known as toxins, which can damage tissue and make you sick. Symptoms of bacterial infection vary depending on the organ affected by bacteria.

Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj is a combination of two medicines: Ceftriaxone and Sulbactam. Ceftriaxone is a cephalosporin antibiotic. It has bactericidal action (kills bacteria). It works by preventing the formation of the cell wall (the outer protective layer of bacteria, which is essential for its survival) by preventing protein synthesis. Sulbactam inhibits the action of beta-lactamase. Beta-lactamase is an enzyme produced by bacteria that can destroy antibiotics (ceftriaxone).

Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj will be administered by a healthcare professional, so do not self-administer. The common side effects of Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj include pain and swelling at the injection site, skin rash, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and black/tarry stools. These side effects are usually mild and temporary. However, if these side effects persist or worsen, inform your doctor immediately.

It is not recommended to take Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj if you are allergic to penicillin or any cephalosporin antibiotic or its contents. Before taking Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj, inform your doctor if you have kidney problems, liver disease, diabetes or using other antibiotics. Do not discontinue or abruptly stop using Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj as it may lead to antibiotic resistance (bacteria become resistant to antibiotics). Before taking Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj, inform your doctor if you have an electrolyte imbalance, seizures, or gastrointestinal diseases. Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj is probably safe when used in children, pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers and the elderly. Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj may not interact with alcohol. Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj may cause dizziness, so do not drive or operate heavy machinery if you feel dizzy.

    Diet & Lifestyle Advise

    • Probiotics should be taken after taking the full course of Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj to restore some healthy bacteria in the intestines that may have been killed. Taking probiotics after antibiotic treatment can reduce the risk of antibiotic-associated diarrhoea. Certain fermented foods like yogurt, cheese, sauerkraut, kombucha and kimchi can help restore the intestine's good bacteria.
    • Include more fibre-enriched food in your diet, as it can be easily digested by gut bacteria, which helps stimulate their growth. Thus, fibre-rich foods may help restore healthy gut bacteria after antibiotics. Whole grains like whole-grain bread and brown rice should be included in your diet.
    • Avoid alcoholic beverages with Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj as they can make you dehydrated and may affect your sleep.  This can make it harder for your body to aid the Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj in fighting off infections.

    Special Advise

    • Inform your doctor if you are allergic to penicillin or other antibiotics.
    • Take it with food and plenty of fluids to avoid an upset stomach.

    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Bacterial infections: A bacterial infection occurs when dangerous bacteria enter the body, flourish, and spread throughout it. It multiplies quickly and can attack any organ in the body. A lot of them emit toxins, which can harm the tissue and make you ill. Minor illnesses like sore throats and ear infections to serious brain infections are all caused by bacteria (like meningitis and encephalitis). Generalized symptoms like fevers, chills, and fatigue can occur when you become infected with bacteria. Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, and E. coli are a few harmful bacteria that frequently cause infections. Anyone can contract a bacterial infection, but those with weakened immune systems or those taking immunosuppressive drugs like steroids are more vulnerable.

    How does Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj work?

    Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj is used to treat bacterial infections. It contains Ceftriaxone and Sulbactam. Ceftriaxone reduces the infection by inhibiting bacterial growth. It disrupts the formation of the cell wall (outer layer), which is essential for bacteria's survival. Sulbactam inhibits the action of beta-lactamase, an enzyme bacteria produce to destroy antibiotics. Sulbactam enhances the activity of ceftriaxone.

    What are the common side effects of Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj?

    Common side effects of Monoface-Sb 1.5Gm Inj are pain and swelling at the injection site, skin rash, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and black/tarry stools. These side effects are usually mild and temporary. However, if any of these side effects persist or worsen, inform your doctor immediately.
