Full Prescribing Info
Overdosage
Limited information is available on the acute toxicity of cefoperazone sodium. Overdosage of the drug would be expected to produce manifestations that are principally extensions of the adverse reactions reported with the drug. The fact that high CSF (cerebral spinal fluid) concentrations of beta-lactam antibiotics may cause neurologic effects and the potential for seizures should be considered. Since cefoperazone is removed from the circulation by hemodialysis, this procedure may enhance the elimination of the drug from the body should overdosage occur in some patients with impaired renal function.
