Summary of Clinical Use Click here for help
Piperacillin (as the sodium salt) is used to treat moderate-to-severe infections due to susceptible organisms. In the UK, piperacillin is approved in a number of combination products with tazobactam, which are all administered intravenously (e.g. Tazocin). Tazocin is indicated for the treatment of severe pneumonia, complicated urinary tract infections, complicated intra-abdominal infections, complicated skin and soft tissue infections, or bacteraemia that arises from any of these infections. The UK National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends piperacillin-tazobactam as initial empiric treatment for patients with suspected neutropenic sepsis [2].
