While Meropenem possesses the characteristic low toxicity of the β-lactam group of antibiotics, periodic assessment of organ system functions, including renal, hepatic, and hematopoietic, is advisable during prolonged therapy. Prescribing Meropenem in the absence of a proven or stongly suspected bacterial infection or a prophylactic indication is unlikely to provide benefit to the patient and increases the risk of the development of drug-resistant bacteria. Seizures and other adverse CNS experiences have been reported during treatment with Meropenem I.V. these experiences have occurred most commonly in patients with CNS disorders (e.g., brain lesions or history of seizures) or with bacterial meningitis and / or compromised renal function. · Prolong use of Meropenem may result in overgrowth of nonsusceptible organisms. Pregnancy: There are no adequate and well – controlled studies in pregnant women. Therefore Meropenem should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed. Breast feeding: It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk. Caution when Meropenem is administered to a breast-feeding woman.
