Limitations of Use

To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of FIRVANQ™ and other antibacterial drugs, FIRVANQ™ should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria. When culture and susceptibility information are available, they should be considered in selecting or modifying antibacterial therapy. In the absence of such data, local epidemiology and susceptibility patterns may contribute to the empiric selection of therapy.

Prior to oral administration, the supplied FIRVANQ™ powder must be reconstituted by the healthcare provider (i.e., a pharmacist) to produce the oral solution [ ].

What should I look out for while using FIRVANQ?

What might happen if I take too much FIRVANQ?

Clinical Pharmacology

Vancomycin is an antibacterial drug [ ].

Non-Clinical Toxicology
FIRVANQ™ is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to vancomycin.

Drug-drug interactions can be pharmacodynamic (combined pharmacologic effects) or pharmacokinetic (alteration of plasma levels). The risks of using haloperidol in combination with other drugs have been evaluated as described below.

FIRVANQ™ must be given orally for treatment of -associated diarrhea and staphylococcal enterocolitis. Orally administered vancomycin is not effective for treatment of other types of infections.

Parenteral administration of vancomycin is effective for treatment of -associated diarrhea and staphylococcal enterocolitis. If parenteral vancomycin therapy is desired, use an intravenous preparation of vancomycin and consult the package insert accompanying that preparation.
