Cefepime hydrochloride is a white to pale yellow powder. Cefepime hydrochloride contains the equivalent of not less than 825 mcg and not more than 911 mcg of cefepime (CHNOS) per mg, calculated on an anhydrous basis. It is highly soluble in water.

Clinical Pharmacology

Cefepime is a cephalosporin antibacterial drug [].

Non-Clinical Toxicology
MAXIPIME is contraindicated in patients who have shown immediate hypersensitivity reactions to cefepime or the cephalosporin class of antibiotics, penicillins or other beta-lactam antibiotics.

A 30% to 45% increase in AUC and Cof nisoldipine was observed with concomitant administration of cimetidine 400 mg twice daily. Ranitidine 150 mg twice daily did not interact significantly with nisoldipine (AUC was decreased by 15% to 20%). No pharmacodynamic effects of either histamine Hreceptor antagonist were observed.

Before therapy with MAXIPIME for Injection is instituted, careful inquiry should be made to determine whether the patient has had previous immediate hypersensitivity reactions to cefepime, cephalosporins, penicillins, or other beta-lactams. Exercise caution if this product is to be given to penicillin-sensitive patients because cross-hypersensitivity among beta-lactam antibacterial drugs has been clearly documented and may occur in up to 10% of patients with a history of penicillin allergy. If an allergic reaction to MAXIPIME occurs, discontinue the drug and institute appropriate supportive measures.

The following adverse reactions are discussed in the Warnings and Precautions section and below:
