Gentamicin Pediatric

Contraindications

OVERDOSE

In the event of overdose or toxic reactions, hemodialysis may aid in the removal of gentamicin (gentamicin injection pediatric) from the blood, and is especially important if renalfunction is, or becomes, compromised. The rate of removal of gentamicin (gentamicin injection pediatric) is considerably less by peritoneal dialysis than it is by hemodialysis. In the newborn infant, exchange transfusions may also be considered.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Hypersensitivity to gentamicin (gentamicin injection pediatric) is a contraindication to its use. A history of hypersensitivity or serious toxic reactions to other aminoglycosides may contraindicate use of gentamicin (gentamicin injection pediatric) because of the known cross-sensitivity of patients to drugs in this class.
