सवाल 3 months पहले

Can I take Alfakim with penicillin?

Dr. Braj Bhushan Ojha BAMS, General Physician

No, Alfakim cannot be taken with penicillin. Because penicillin inactivates the Alfakim by combining the beta-lactam ring of penicillin with an amino group of this drug to form amide which is biologically inactive. For this reason Alfakim should not be taken with penicillin. The chances of inactivation of this drug are higher in case of renal failure because in this case concentration of penicillin is higher in the kidney for a longer time as compared to the normal renal function.
