    I have been in the hospital for 6 days and it was finally determined what is wrong with me and hopefully what combination of drugs will make me well. I receive Merrem IV every 6 hours and already I am starting to feel better. Up untill now, nothing was working.

    This drug was administered with a mid line PICC line so the 98 year old patient (who is fully self sufficient) could remain home during treatment. The Meropenem was mixed from powder form with 20 ml sterile water every 12 hours. It was difficult for the patient to do all the steps before injecting into the iv line because of redulced vision, however as the caregiver, it was workable. Patient showed remarkable improvement in 36 hours. as treatment is ongoing.... 10 days 2 times a day, we have no report on full effectiveness yet.

    My son was on Merrem for two days and his toes started to have pain. Was on for a total of 10 days and pain increased. His infection cleared up and after his surgeon researched the secondary pain in his feet, he told us that he found out that that 5 cases have been reported having fibromyalgia as a side effect. I guess because it was such a extremely low # of cases reported, it is not general knowledge on ANY web search we could find. We are hoping now that he is off antibiotic, the symptoms will resolve itself. We are happy that the infection cleared up, however a little disappointed that the HH Nurse, Pharmacy and Dr's could not find this side effect info easier.

    My daughter is on Merrem. We have been doing quite well on this medication. It is easy to mix and administer. My only complaint is that it is SO expensive! Luckily, we have good health care coverage!
