Suggest treatment for aspiration pneumonia while on Meropenem
Is this klebsiella? The above name is strange to us!
Hi and thanks so much for this query.
I am so sorry to hear about this infection that your wife has. I am not sure you got the name right. Cross check and see whether it is more of what i proposed.
On another note, the same culture that identifies the germ also identifies the best antibiotics to act on. In this case, these are are the strongest available and you should not be worried about whether it is he best or not. That not withstanding, meropenenms are excellent against klebsiella and superior to zosyn.
I hope this addresses your worry fully. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
