more than 10 hours.
Hi XXXX, thanks for using HCM.
I went through the query and understood your concern.
is a fourth generation cephalosporin
with half life of 2 hours in patients with good renal activity. That means it takes 8-10 hours for excretion. It is excreted mainly through kidneys.
In renal failure
patients the drug action will be prolonged and its excretion depends one the renal activity or dialysis
but will be more than 10 hours. More over the drug will be in higher concentration in CSF and hence the time taken for action and elimination from CSF will be more than 10hours.
I hope this information helps you. Feel free to ask if any further queries and I will be glad to answer them.
Wish you and your family a very happy life and good health.
