Drug interactions between Fortaz and gentamicin
Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: Fortaz (ceftazidime) and gentamicin
Gentamicin can sometimes cause kidney damage, and using it with a cephalosporin antibiotic like cefTAZidime may increase that risk. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns. Your doctor may already be aware of the risks, but has determined that this is the best course of treatment for you and has taken appropriate precautions and is monitoring you closely for any potential complications. Signs and symptoms of kidney damage may include nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, increased or decreased urination, sudden weight gain or weight loss, fluid retention, swelling, shortness of breath, muscle cramps, tiredness, weakness, dizziness, confusion, and irregular heart rhythm. Let your doctor know if you experience some or all of these problems during treatment. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
