General Information On Zosyn
Zosyn is a prescription drug approved for treating moderate to serious nosocomial pneumonia caused by bacteria which produce anti-piperacillin beta lactamase. Apart from treating nosocomial pneumonia, Zosyn is also used for treating bacterial infections such as stomach infections, severe vaginal infections, urinary tract infections, bone and joint infections, and skin infections. The generic name of Zosyn is piperacillin and tazobactam, and it belongs to the class of antibiotics.
The active ingredient in Zosyn, piperacillin, is a form of penicillin, and tazobactam, the other active ingredient in the drug, is also an antibiotic similar to penicillin. Both these ingredients help fight bacterial infections. Zosyn is available only in injection form and is administered in the vein via an IV. Typically, Zosyn is mixed with a diluent and administered given slowly since the IV infusion takes about 30 minutes.
Side effects of Zosyn
Just like other antibiotics, Zosyn has its share of potential side effects. The severity of side effects may vary from patient to patient depending on their condition, the severity of the infection, and the type of other medications used. However, not all patients using Zosyn experience side effects. In fact, most side effects are minor.
The common side effects of Zosyn are :
- Unexplained vaginal discharge or vaginal itching
- mild pain or swelling in the area where the injected was administered
- mild stomach pain, headache, or dizziness
- lack of sleep
- mild diarrhea, constipation, or runny nose
- Itching or skin rashes
The rare but serious side effects of Zosyn are
- Pale or dark colored urine or burning sensation while urinating
- constant feeling of thirst, increased heart rate, inability to concentrate
- body aches, muscle weakness, appearance of purple or red spots beneath the skin at the site of the injection
- appearance of sores or white patches in the mouth or on the lips
- continuous bloody or watery diarrhea
If you experience any of the above mentioned side effects, you must immediately report the same to your doctor.

Dosage of Zosyn
Doctors determine the Zosyn dosage after carefully assessing a patient’s condition and the severity of the infection. Typically, the drug is administered for about 7 to 10 days. If you buy Zosyn and wish to use it at home, you must strictly adhere to your doctor’s instructions on administering the shot the right way. Using a larger dose than recommended or taking Zosyn for longer than prescribed may increase the risk of side effects.
If you are using the drug at home, make sure that you do not mix the medicine in the syringe or IV bag until you are ready to administer the shot.
Before using Zosyn, inform your doctor about the other medicines or supplements you are using. This is because Zosyn can cause adverse drug interactions if used along with other medications. Zosyn can potentially interact with:

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
