Medication Supply- Disruption of Ampicillin-Sulbactam Combo Injection Supply

Post date: Jan 25, 2018 4:57:24 AM

Supply is expected to resume by end of February 2018. But until then, doctors are advised to prescribe either:

  1. Amoxicillin + Clavulanate (Co- Amoxiclav) Injection OR

as alternative to Sultamicillin (Ampicillin + Sulbactam).

The supply disruption is truly beyond UMMC's control and we apologize for any inconveniences caused.
