There are 7 disease interactions with cefoperazone:

Major

Antibiotics (Includes cefoperazone) ↔ colitis

Severe Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Colitis/Enteritis (Noninfectious)

Pseudomembranous colitis has been reported with most antibacterial agents and may range in severity from mild to life-threatening, with an onset of up to two months following cessation of therapy. Antibiotic therapy can alter the normal flora of the colon and permit overgrowth of Clostridium difficile, whose toxin is believed to be a primary cause of antibiotic- associated colitis. The colitis is usually characterized by severe, persistent diarrhea and severe abdominal cramps, and may be associated with the passage of blood and mucus. The most common culprits are clindamycin, lincomycin, the aminopenicillins (amoxicillin, ampicillin), and the cephalosporins. Therapy with broad-spectrum antibiotics and other agents with significant antibacterial activity should be administered cautiously in patients with a history of gastrointestinal diseases, particularly colitis. There is some evidence that pseudomembranous colitis, if it occurs, may run a more severe course in these patients and that it may be associated with flares in their underlying disease activity. The offending antibiotic(s) should be discontinued if significant diarrhea occurs during therapy. Stool cultures for Clostridium difficile and stool assay for C. difficile toxin may be helpful diagnostically. A large bowel endoscopy may be considered to establish a definitive diagnosis in cases of severe diarrhea.

Cephalosporins (Includes cefoperazone) ↔ hypoprothrombinemia

Severe Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Liver Disease, Coagulation Defect, Vitamin K Deficiency, Thrombocytopenia, Thrombocytopathy, Malnourished, Malabsorption Syndrome, Bleeding

Hypoprothrombinemia, with or without bleeding, has been reported rarely with various cephalosporins, particularly those containing an N-methylthiotetrazole (NMTT) side chain (cefamandole, cefmetazole, cefoperazone, cefotetan). The sulfhydryl group of this side chain is suspected of interfering with the hepatic synthesis of prothrombin. Risk factors include advanced age, debility, vitamin K deficiency, malnutrition, malabsorption, and severe renal or hepatobiliary impairment. Therapy with cephalosporins containing the NMTT side chain should be administered cautiously in patients with any of these risk factors and/or significant active bleeding or a hemorrhagic diathesis. Prophylactic administration of vitamin K may be indicated in some patients, especially when intestinal sterilization and surgical procedures are performed.

Cefoperazone (Includes cefoperazone) ↔ renal/liver disease

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Liver Disease, Biliary Obstruction, Renal Dysfunction

Cefoperazone is primarily eliminated by hepatobiliary excretion. In patients with impaired hepatic function and/or biliary obstruction, the half-life of cefoperazone is prolonged 2- to 4-fold but urinary excretion is increased. At usual dosages, adjustments are generally not necessary in either renal or hepatobiliary impairment. However, serum drug concentrations should be monitored if high dosages are used (i.e. > 4 g/day), and the dosage decreased accordingly if drug accumulation occurs. In patients with both hepatic and severe renal impairment, cefoperazone dosage should not exceed 1 to 2 grams per day without close monitoring of serum concentrations.

Cefoperazone (Includes cefoperazone) ↔ sodium

Moderate Potential Hazard, High plausibility. Applies to: Congestive Heart Failure, Hypertension, Fluid Retention, Hypernatremia

Parenteral cefoperazone sodium contains approximately 34 mg (1.5 mEq) of sodium per each gram of cefoperazone activity. The sodium content should be considered in patients with conditions that may require sodium restriction, such as congestive heart failure, hypertension, and fluid retention.

Cephalosporins (Includes cefoperazone) ↔ dialysis

Moderate Potential Hazard, High plausibility. Applies to: hemodialysis

Most cephalosporin antibiotics are removed by hemodialysis. Doses should either be scheduled for administration after dialysis or supplemental doses be given after dialysis. Cefonicid, cefixime, and ceftriaxone are not significantly removed by hemodialysis.

Cephalosporins (Includes cefoperazone) ↔ disulfiram-like reaction

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Alcoholism

Disulfiram-like reactions may occur in patients who consume alcohol within 72 hours after administration of a cephalosporin antibiotic that contains an N-methylthiotetrazole (NMTT) side chain (cefamandole, cefmetazole, cefoperazone, cefotetan). The reaction appears to result from accumulation of acetaldehyde due to inhibition of acetaldehyde dehydrogenase. Therapy with cephalosporins containing the NMTT side chain should be administered cautiously in patients with a history of alcoholism. Patients should be instructed to avoid alcohol-containing products during therapy and up to 72 hours after the last dose.

Cephalosporins (Includes cefoperazone) ↔ liver disease

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Liver Disease

Cases of hepatitis have been reported with the use of certain cephalosporins. Transient rise in SGOT, SGPT, and alkaline phosphatase levels have also been observed. Caution and monitoring is recommended when these agents are prescribed to patients with hepatic disorders.

Drug Interaction Classification

These classifications are only a guideline. The relevance of a particular drug interaction to a specific individual is difficult to determine. Always consult your healthcare provider before starting or stopping any medication.
Major Highly clinically significant. Avoid combinations; the risk of the interaction outweighs the benefit.
Moderate Moderately clinically significant. Usually avoid combinations; use it only under special circumstances.
Minor Minimally clinically significant. Minimize risk; assess risk and consider an alternative drug, take steps to circumvent the interaction risk and/or institute a monitoring plan.
Unknown No interaction information available.
