OVERDOSE

There is no specific information on overdose with PIPRACIL (piperacillin sodium) . Other penicillin-class drugs in overdosage, however, have the potential to cause neuromuscular hyperirritability or convulsive seizures.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

PIPRACIL (piperacillin sodium) is contraindicated in patients with a history of allergic reactions to any of the betalactams, including penicillins and/or cephalosporins.
