Reviews for Cefepime
For Skin and Structure Infection: "I had surgeon- caused osteomylitis which did not respond to oral cipro. After an 8- week iv regimen of cefepime the bugs seem to be gone. No side effects, but I ate tons of yogurt hoping to replace my gut bacteria as fast as the drug killed them. It seems to have worked."

For Skin and Structure Infection: "I have been fighting pseudomonas infection in my knee over 7 years, the infection laid dormant in my body then came back. After two surgeries, one to remove hardware, and then another to clean my knee, I was placed on this medicine, twice a day by iv. After 3 weeks being on the medicine got emergency call from my Dr who stated, I needed white blood count right away, my labs from day before showed my white blood count at 1.8( which should be 4.5) and platlet at 99 ( should be 150), I had stat labs and white blood count dropped to 0.83, so due to medicine my bone marrow was shutting down. This is only 1 percent chance it can happen. Of course had to stop that iv medicine. Other then that, this was very easy to use by IV, and felt fine"
