Product Description

Colistimethate sodium is a medication used primarily for the treatment of bacterial infections, particularly those caused by multidrug-resistant strains of bacteria. It is a prodrug that is converted in the body to colistin, which is the active form responsible for its antibacterial effects.

Colistimethate sodium is administered via intravenous (IV) or inhaled routes, depending on the type and severity of the infection being treated. It is often reserved for severe infections caused by Gram-negative bacteria that are resistant to other antibiotics, such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter baumannii, and certain strains of Klebsiella pneumoniae.

This medication works by disrupting the bacterial cell membrane, leading to leakage of intracellular contents and ultimately bacterial cell death. Colistimethate sodium is typically used as a last resort when other antibiotics have failed or when the infection is known to be resistant to standard treatments.

Due to its potential for kidney toxicity and neurotoxicity, colistimethate sodium is generally used cautiously and with close monitoring of kidney function and neurological status. Common side effects may include kidney damage, neurotoxicity (including confusion, dizziness, and muscle weakness), and gastrointestinal disturbances.

As with any medication, it's essential to use colistimethate sodium as directed by a healthcare professional and to report any concerning side effects promptly.
