MEIACT is contraindicated in patients with known allergy to the cephalosporin class of antibiotics or any of its components.
MEIACT is contraindicated in patients with carnitine deficiency or inborn errors of metabolism that may result in clinically significant carnitine deficiency, because use of MEIACT causes renal excretion of carnitine. (See General under Precautions.)
MEIACT tablets contain sodium caseinate, a milk protein. Patients with milk protein hypersensitivity (not lactose intolerance) should not be administered MEIACT.
