Drugs That Interfere With Tazicef

Tazicef Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Tazicef is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Aminoglycoside Antibiotics
Combining Tazicef with an aminoglycoside antibiotic may increase the risk of kidney damage. Nonetheless, in some very serious situations, such combinations may be used when the possible benefits outweigh the likely risks.
 
Birth Control Pills
Despite the long-standing belief that antibiotics interact with birth control pills, several studies have shown that almost all antibiotics do not increase the risk of pregnancy in women taking birth control pills. Nevertheless, there have been reports of birth control pill failure in women who have taken antibiotics. Ask your healthcare provider whether you need a backup method of birth control while taking Tazicef (see Antibiotics and Birth Control Pills for more information).
 
Chloramphenicol
Chloramphenicol may decrease the effectiveness of Tazicef. In general, these two antibiotics should not be used together.
 
Diuretics
Like other similar antibiotics that are removed from the body using the kidneys, Tazicef should be used cautiously in people who take diuretics, since some diuretics can decrease kidney function. Such combinations may increase the risk of kidney damage. If you take a diuretic, check with your healthcare provider before receiving Tazicef.
 
Oral Typhoid Vaccine
Like other antibiotics, Tazicef may decrease the effectiveness of the oral typhoid vaccine. If you have received Tazicef recently or are currently using it, your oral typhoid vaccine may need to be postponed for at least a day after a Tazicef dosage.
