Aztreonam

Drug Info for aztreonam

Aztreonam injection is used to treat certain infections that are caused by bacteria, including respiratory tract (including pneumonia and bronchitis), urinary tract, blood, skin, gynecological, and abdominal (stomach area) infections, that are caused by bacteria. Aztreonam injection also may be used before, during, and sometimes for a brief period after surgery in order to prevent the patient from getting an infection. It is also used for the prevention of infections following colorectal surgery. Aztreonam is in a class of medications called monobactam antibiotics. It works by killing bacteria. Antibiotics such as aztreonam injection will not work for colds, flu, or other viral infections. Taking antibiotics when they are not needed increases your risk of getting an infection later that resists antibiotic treatment.

Aztreonam is a prescription drug used to treat certain bacterial infections of the blood, urinary tract, stomach, skin, or lower respiratory tract. It may also be used to treat after infections caused by bacteria as prescribed by your doctor. Aztreonam works to stop the bacteria in the infected area from growing and spreading.
