ticarcillin - sodium/potassium
Parenteral ticarcillin disodium contains approximately 120 to 150 mg (5.2 to 6.5 mEq) of sodium per each gram of ticarcillin activity. The combination, ticarcillin-clavulanate, contains approximately 109 mg (4.75 mEq) of sodium per gram of total drug. The sodium content should be considered in patients with conditions that may require sodium restriction, such as congestive heart failure, hypertension, and fluid retention. In addition, hypokalemia has been reported rarely during therapy with ticarcillin and other extended-spectrum penicillin antibiotics, which may be particularly important to bear in mind when treating patients with low potassium reserves or fluid and electrolyte imbalance. Clinical monitoring of electrolytes is recommended if these agents are used for prolonged periods.
