Maxipime Drug Information

Maxipime® (cefepime) is an antibiotic that is prescribed to treat various types of bacterial infections, including urinary tract infections, pneumonia, and skin infections. It is given intravenously (by IV) or by intramuscular (IM) injection, usually every 8 or 12 hours.
 
Maxipime belongs to a group of drugs known as cephalosporins, which is part of a larger group of medications known as beta-lactam antibiotics (named after the ring-like "lactam" structure of these antibiotics). It works by stopping bacteria from making cell walls, which eventually causes the bacteria to die.
 
Before you start treatment with Maxipime, information on the drug should be reviewed with your healthcare provider to help ensure a safe treatment process. For example, common side effects include rashes, diarrhea, and nausea. Your healthcare provider also needs to know if you are pregnant or have kidney disease or a penicillin allergy.
