About Zonamax ES Injection

Zonamax ES Injection belongs to the group of medicines called antibiotics used to treat various bacterial infections such as respiratory tract (lungs) infection, urine infection, blood infection, meningitis (inflammation of the brain and spinal cord), gonorrhoea (sexually transmitted disease), skin, abdominal, bone, and joint infections. Bacterial infections are caused due to the multiplication of harmful bacteria inside or on the body. Infectious or harmful bacteria can make you sick and reproduce quickly in your body. These harmful bacteria produce chemicals known as toxins, which can damage tissue and make you sick. Zonamax ES Injection does not work against infections caused by the virus, including cold and flu.

Zonamax ES Injection is a combination of two antibiotics, namely: Cefoperazone (cephalosporin antibiotic) and sulbactam (beta-lactamase inhibitor). Cefoperazone works by preventing the formation of bacterial cell covering, which is necessary for their survival. Thereby, kills the bacteria. On the other hand, sulbactam works by decreasing bacterial resistance and enhancing the activity of cefoperazone against the bacteria. Together, Zonamax ES Injection helps to treat bacterial infections.

You may experience diarrhoea, allergic reaction, abnormal liver function tests, and anaemia (low number of red blood cells). Most of these side effects of Zonamax ES Injection do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.

Before starting Zonamax ES Injection, please inform your doctor if you have any allergy (against any antibiotic), kidney or liver problems. Do not take Zonamax ES Injection on your own as self-medication may lead to antibiotic-resistance in which antibiotics fail to act against specific bacterial infections. Consult your doctor before taking Zonamax ES Injection if you are pregnant or planning for pregnancy. Avoid taking Zonamax ES Injection if you are breastfeeding as Zonamax ES Injection may pass into breast milk. Avoid alcohol consumption while taking Zonamax ES Injection to prevent unpleasant side-effects.
