Colistimethate

Colistimethate is a medication used to treat serious bacterial infections caused by gram-negative bacteria, often referred to as "superbugs." It works by disrupting the cell walls of the bacteria, causing them to die. Colistimethate is usually given by intravenous infusion or inhaled directly into the lungs. It is mainly used for infections that are resistant to other antibiotics and is typically used as a last resort treatment option. Brand names for colistimethate include Coly-Mycin M, Coly-Mycin S, and Colomycin.
