I had a severe allergic reaction to this medicine. It was administered by IV and I immediately started itching. Turned red and developed welts and hives. They had to increase my IV in order to flush my system. I was admitted with an inflamed gallbladder and acute pancreatitis.

Comment:
I developed a very bad case of pancreatitis as a result of a severe gallstone attack, and they immediately started me on Zosyn in the ER.

I am actually reviewing this for my elderly 92 year old aunt who was administered this after endoscopic common bile duct gallstone removal. Within couple of hours of Zosyn, she developed kidney failure, as well as thrombocytopenia, hypokalemia, and 4+ edema of her hands. She was even placed on hospice! (Her close friend and neighbor had also had this happen to her with Zosyn; kidney failure, whic ... Show Full Comment

A few days after surgery, an infection appeared in my leg below the incision. The doctors placed me on IV and gave this antibiotic. I knew immediately that that something was wrong. Within 30-45 seconds I could not breath! Always have them ready with benadryl or something to counter act this allergic reaction. I truly felt as if I was going to die.
