Precautions and Warnings With Ceftaroline

Who Should Not Receive Ceftaroline?

You should not use ceftaroline if you are allergic to it, Teflaro, other cephalosporin antibiotics, or any of the inactive components used to make the medicine. Your healthcare provider or pharmacist has a list of the inactive ingredients.
 
The prescribing information states that people with allergies to penicillin medications or other beta-lactam antibiotics should not use ceftaroline. However, the prescribing information also states that caution should be used when giving ceftaroline to people with penicillin allergies, suggesting that in some circumstances, with appropriate monitoring and in a setting capable of handling an allergic emergency, it is acceptable to give this medication to people who are allergic to penicillin; approximately 90 percent of people with penicillin allergies will not be allergic to ceftaroline.
