The administration of inappropriately large doses of parenteral cephalosporins may cause seizures, particularly in patients with renal impairment. Dosage reduction is necessary when renal function is impaired ( see Dosage and Administration ). If seizures occur, the drug should be promptly discontinued; anticonvulsant therapy may be administered if clinically indicated. Hemodialysis may be considered in cases of overwhelming overdosage.
Mandol (cefamandole) is contraindicated in patients with known allergy to the cephalosporin group of antibiotics.
