TAZOJECT-P 4.5g IV.
Powder for solution for IV injection or IV infusion in a 50ml bottle.
TAZOJECT-P 4.5g IV contains piperacillin and tazobactam, which belong to the group of medicines known respectively as penicillins (broad-spectrum antibiotics) and beta-lactamase inhibitors. Piperacillin can kill many types of bacteria. Tazobactam may prevent some resistant bacteria from surviving the effects of piperacillin. This means that when piperacillin and tazobactam are given together, a greater variety of bacteria are killed.
