In most cases, monotherapy with Kimacef is effective, but if necessary, the drug can be used in combination with aminoglycoside antibiotics or metronidazole (orally, in suppositories or by injection).
In the case of an existing or expected mixed aerobic and anaerobic infection (for example, peritonitis, aspiration pneumonia, lung abscess, pelvic organs and brain) and a high probability of such infection (for example, in operations on the large intestine and in gynecological surgery), the use of the drug Kimacef in combination with metronidazole is acceptable.
In the treatment of pneumonia and exacerbation of chronic bronchitis, the drug Kimacef can be prescribed before oral administration of cefuroxime axetil, when necessary.
