WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS
- Serious and occasionally fatal hypersensitivity (anaphylactoid) reactions have been reported in patients on cephalosporin therapy. Serious anaphylactoid reactions require immediate emergency treatment with epinephrine. Oxygen, IV steroids, and airway management, including intubation, should also be instituted.
- Pseudomembranous colitis has been reported with nearly all antibacterial agents including cephalosporins, and may range in severity from mild to life threatening. It is important to consider this diagnosis in patients who present with diarrhea after administration of antibacterial agents. If superinfection occurs during therapy, appropriate measures should be taken.
- A false-positive Coombs’ test has been reported during treatment with other cephalosporin antibiotics; therefore, it should be recognized that a positive Coombs’ test may be due to the drug, e.g., Coombs’ testing of newborns whose mothers have received cephalosporin antibiotics before parturition or in hematologic studies or in transfusion cross-matching procedures when antiglobulin tests are performed.
