Pharyngitis and Tonsillitis: Due to Streptococcus pyogenes.

Theropeutic Class

Third generation Cephalosporins

Pharmacology

As with most beta-lactam antibiotics, the bactericidal activity of ceftibuten results from the inhibition of bacterial cell wall synthesis. Due to its chemical structure, ceftibuten is highly stable to beta-lactamases. Many beta-lactamase-producing microorganisms, which are resistant to penicillins or other cephalosporins, may be inhibited by ceftibuten.

Dosage & Administration of Buticef 400 mg

As with other oral antibiotics, duration of treatment generally ranges from 5-10 days. For treatment of infections due to Streptococcus pyogenes, a therapeutic dose of Ceftibuten should be administered for at least 10 days.Adults: Recommended Dose: 400 mg daily.

Ceftibuten should be only given during pregnancy when need has been clearly established.Ceftibuten is acceptable to use during breastfeeding. Limited information indicates that single maternal doses of ceftibuten up to 200 mg produce low levels in milk that are not expected to cause adverse effects in breastfed infants.

Precautions & Warnings

As with other broad-spectrum antibiotics, prolonged treatment may result in the possible emergence and overgrowth of resistant organisms. Careful observation of the patient is essential. The dose of Ceftibuten may require adjustment in patients with varying degrees of renal insufficiency.

Use In Special Populations

Use in children: Safety and efficacy of Ceftibuten in infants <6 months have not been established.Adult Patients with Renal Impairment: Ceftibuten pharmacokinetics are not affected sufficiently to require dosage modifications unless creatinine clearance values are <50 mL/min. If creatinine clearance is from 49 to 30 mL/min, the daily dose should be decreased to 200 mg. With creatinine clearance values of 29 to 5 mL/min, the recommended daily dose is 100 mg.If alteration of dosing frequency is preferred, a 400-mg dose of Ceftibuten may be administered every 48 hrs (every 2 days) to a patient with a creatinine clearance of 30-49 mL/min, and every 96 hrs (every 4 days) if creatinine clearance is 5-29 mL/min.In patients undergoing hemodialysis 2 or 3 times weekly, a single dose of Ceftibuten 400 mg may be administered at the end of each hemodialysis session.

Drug Classes

Third generation Cephalosporins

Mode Of Action

Ceftibuten is the dihydrate salt of Ceftibuten, is a semi-synthetic Cephalosporin antibiotic for oral administration. Ceftibuten exerts its bactericidal action by binding to essential target proteins of the bacterial cell wall. This binding leads to inhibition of cell-wall synthesis.

Pregnancy

Pregnancy Category B. There are no controlled data on the use of Ceftibuten in pregnant women. Ceftibuten should be used in pregnancy only when the benefit clearly outweighs the risk. It is not known whether Ceftibuten (recommended dosage) is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be excercised when Ceftibuten is administered to nursing women.

Pediatric Uses

Renal Impairment- CrCl 5 to 29 ml/min: 2.25 mg/kg or 100 mg orally once a day CrCl 30 to 49 ml/min: 4.5 mg/kg or 200 mg orally once a day Hepatic Impairment: Dose adjustment is not necessary.
