Doribax (doripenem) is the fourth carbapenem antibiotic

Doribax (doripenem) is the fourth carbapenem antibiotic...after Primaxin (imipenem/cilastatin), Merrem (meropenem), and Invanz (ertapenem).

Doribax will be for complicated urinary tract, kidney, and intra-abdominal infections...but save it for resistant cases.

Carbapenems are broad-spectrum IV antibiotics...covering many gram-positive and gram-negative organisms and anaerobes. Keep in mind none of these agents work for MRSA.
