I had a urinary tract infection that made its way into my right testicle and caused swelling and a tremendous amount of pain. After doctors tried some other antibiotics that did not work, they started me on Zosyn, and it began to bring my white blood count back to normal. After seven days of the drug every eight hours, I was back to normal and released from the hospital. I just wish there would have been a pill form available.

This is my 5th antibiotic thismonth alone. It was nice to find something that worked quickly,minimal side effects (none for me actually) and I started to feel better after 3 IV doses of 3.375 grams. Thank you.

A few days after surgery, an infection appeared in my leg below the incision. The doctors placed me on IV and gave this antibiotic. I knew immediately that that something was wrong. Within 30-45 seconds I could not breath! Always have them ready with benadryl or something to counter act this allergic reaction. I truly felt as if I was going to die.

I did not have any side effects at all from two weeks in hosp. for zosyn iv. It worked for about 2 weeks after treatment, but infection came back as it does with antibiotic treatment.

I was put on this for a severe gallbladder infection. They did have to add another antibiotic after my surgery, and either it, or the combination of the 2, made my mouth taste horrible! I also got pretty bad diarrhea, but that is clearing now that I'm off of it. The bad taste in my mouth remains!

Allergic reaction to this drug, almost died, ended up in ICU for 4 days. Heart rate dropped to below 30, BP was 60/30, loss of bowel control, throwing up, couldn't breath, luckily I was already in the hospital otherwise I would have been dead.

I am actually reviewing this for my elderly 92 year old aunt who was administered this after endoscopic common bile duct gallstone removal. Within couple of hours of Zosyn, she developed kidney failure, as well as thrombocytopenia, hypokalemia, and 4+ edema of her hands. She was even placed on hospice! (Her close friend and neighbor had also had this happen to her with Zosyn; kidney failure, which thankfully is slowly improving.) Aunt Edie was placed in a Rehab facility much too quickly, but immediately worsened and was readmitted to hospital, for another 10 days. Total inpatient time was 3 weeks!
