Zerbaxa News

The previous label for the antibacterial drug Zerbaxa might be misinterpreted and lead to an overdose of the drug. The FDA has asked the manufacturer to label this drug more clearly, in order to prevent any problems.

Is Zerbaxa Safe?

Zerbaxa (a combination of both ceftolozane and tazobactam) is sometimes used to treat urinary tract infections (UTIs) or more complicated abdominal infections. The FDA, at this point, is not recommending any changes to how this drug is being used or removing it from the market, but hoping to clarify the label in order to make sure patients, like you, receive the proper dosage.

Zerbaxa Side-Effects

Thankfully, no one has reported any bad side-effects from overdosing with Zerbaxa to the FDA yet. The FDA might have caught this problem before anyone was harmed.

However, if someone you love was treated for a urinary or abdominal infection, and suffered or died under unusual circumstances, you might want to consult a lawyer. A good attorney can help review medical records to determine if they received Zerbaxa and someone’s mistake lead to their death.

This is a procedure that helps to keep the spine stable by connecting two or more vertebrae in the lower back. The purpose is similar to that of taping two fingers together to stabilize a broken bone. The surgery is achieved either by grafting a bone to the spine to create a bridge between two or more vertebrae or by using a metal implant to hold vertebrae together until new bone tissue develops between them . If you’ve undergone spinal fusion surgery, your doctor may have used one of Zimmer Biomet’s SpF PLUS-Mini or SpF XL IIb Implantable Spinal Fusion Stimulators to aid in your recovery process.
