Question almost 4 years ago

Can I take Azcin with penicillin?

Dr. Braj Bhushan Ojha BAMS , Gastroenterology, Dermatology, Psychiatry, Ayurveda, Sexology, Diabetology

No, Azcin cannot be taken with penicillin. Because penicillin inactivates the Azcin 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 Azcin 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.
