To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of Hiprex and other antibacterial drugs, Hiprex should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria.

Hiprex is effective at eliminating several types of bacteria that cause these infections. Hiprex should be used only under the guidance of a healthcare provider.
