piperacillin - sodium/potassium
Parenteral piperacillin sodium contains approximately 43 mg (1.85 mEq) of sodium per each gram of piperacillin activity. The combination, piperacillin-tazobactam, contains approximately 54 mg (2.35 mEq) of sodium per gram of piperacillin, or 108 mg (4.7 mEq) per 2.25 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 piperacillin 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.
