Sterile cefazolin sodium is contraindicated in patients with known allergy to the cephalosporin

group of antibiotics.



Sterile cefazolin sodium should be used with caution in penicillin-allergic patients. There is

clinical evidence of partial cross-allergenicity of the penicillins and the cephalosporins. There

are instances of patients who have had reactions to both penicillins and cephalosporins (including

fatal anaphylaxis after parenteral use). Clinical and laboratory evidence of partial crossallergenicity

of the two drug classes exists.

Sterile cefazolin sodium should be administered cautiously and then only when absolutely

necessary to any patient who has demonstrated allergy, particularly to drugs. Immediate

emergency treatment with epinephrine is indicated for serious anaphylactoid reactions. As

indicated, oxygen, intravenous steroids, and airway management including intubation, should

also be employed.

There have been reports of pseudo membranous colitis with the use of cephalosporins. It is

therefore important to consider its diagnosis in patients who develop diarrhea in association with

antibiotic use.
