"The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved Zerbaxa (ceftolozane/tazobactam), a new antibacterial drug product, to treat adults with complicated intra-abdominal infections (cIAI) and complicated urinary tract infections (cUTI).
Only a small amount of ciprofloxacin ( < 10%) is removed from the body after hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis.
In the event of an acute overdosage, the stomach should be emptied by inducing vomiting or by gastric lavage. The patient should be carefully observed and given supportive treatment. Adequate hydration must be maintained.
Serious adverse effects were not observed in rats receiving single oral doses of ciprofloxacin as high as 2,000 mg/kg.
Proquin XR (ciprofloxacin hcl) is contraindicated in persons with a known hypersensitivity to ciprofloxacin or other quinolone antibacterials [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
