  • Fortaz Overview

    Ceftazidime is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. Fortaz belongs to a class of drugs known as cephalosporin antibiotics. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria.

  • How to Use Fortaz

    Fortaz is given by injection into a muscle or vein as directed by your doctor, usually every 8 to 12 hours. The Dosage of Fortaz is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. If you are using Fortaz at home, learn all preparation and usage instructions from your health care professional. Before using, check Fortaz visually for particles or discoloration. If either is present, do not use the liquid. Learn how to store and discard medical supplies safely. If you are using the frozen pre-mixed solution, thaw the bag at room temperature or in the refrigerator. If the bag is thawed in the refrigerator, let it sit at room temperature at least 1 hour before using. Do not thaw by putting in a water bath or microwaving. After thawing, shake well and squeeze the bag to check for leaks. Discard solution if the bag leaks. Do not re-freeze the solution after thawing. For the best effect, use this antibiotic at evenly spaced times. To help you remember, use Fortaz at the same time(s) every day. Continue to use Fortaz for the full time prescribed, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may result in a return of the infection. Tell your doctor if your condition lasts or gets worse.

  • Fortaz Precautions

    Before using ceftazidime, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to other antibiotics (such as penicillins, other cephalosporins); or if you have any other allergies. Fortaz may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Fortaz, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,kidney disease, stomach/intestinal diseases (such as colitis). Ceftazidime may cause live bacterial vaccines (such as typhoid vaccine) to not work as well. Do not have any immunizations/vaccinations while using Fortaz unless your doctor tells you to. Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). Tell your doctor if you are pregnant before using Fortaz. Fortaz passes into breast milk in small amounts and is unlikely to harm a nursing infant. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

  • Fortaz Misdose

    For the best possible benefit, it is important to receive each scheduled dose of Fortaz as directed. If you miss a dose of Fortaz, contact your doctor or pharmacist right away to establish a new dosing schedule. Do not double the dose to catch up.

  • Fortaz Interactions

    Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval. Fortaz may interfere with certain lab tests (such as certain urine glucose tests), possibly causing false test results. Make sure lab personnel and all your doctors know you use Fortaz.

  • Fortaz Side Effects

    What are Fortaz side effects?

    Side effects are physical, mental or emotional symptoms which occur in addition to or outside of the desired effect of a therapeutic treatment such as an over-the-counter or prescribed drug or medication. Side effects from Fortaz may occur at the beginning or at the end of treatment and may also depend on the length of time an individual remains on the treatment. Side effects, also known as adverse effects, are generally more likely to occur when starting treatment. Individuals may also experience side effects from Fortaz as a result of an interaction with other medications.

    Side Effects of Fortaz

    The side effects of Fortaz may vary in number and intensity for many different reasons. Factors such as age, weight, gender and ethnicity may influence the side effects of Fortaz. Also, an individual’s state of general physical health and seriousness of the disease or illness as well as an increase or decrease in dosage may lead to side effects. Further, side effects from Fortaz may also occur as a result of an interaction with certain herbal supplements, foods or drinks.

    Prescription drug side effects can be serious and may cause patients to stop the treatment. However, when side effects from the use of a prescription drug, such as Fortaz, do occur a patient should consult their physician. A physician may prescribe an additional treatment in order to control the symptoms or an adjustment in the dosage may be made. In addition, changes to diet, exercise or other lifestyle activities may help to lessen the side effects of Fortaz.

    By understanding side effects and the factors which may influence the occurrence of side effects patients are empowered to take an active role in their care. Patients who have specific questions about the side effects of Fortaz, or any other medication, should contact their physician.
