I was given this medication after hernia surgery. I had some fluid around the mesh. Within 36 hours I had a rash all over my body which I was then diagnosed with Steven's Jojnson Syndrome (skin fell off entire body). Along with that my kidneys shut down. Just before they were to put me on dialisys my kidneys began to improve. 6 weeks later I am still in the hospital waiting for skins issues to heal. Be careful with all medications please!

I am actually reviewing this for my elderly 92 year old aunt who was administered this after endoscopic common bile duct gallstone removal. Within couple of hours of Zosyn, she developed kidney failure, as well as thrombocytopenia, hypokalemia, and 4+ edema of her hands. She was even placed on hospice! (Her close friend and neighbor had also had this happen to her with Zosyn; kidney failure, which thankfully is slowly improving.) Aunt Edie was placed in a Rehab facility much too quickly, but immediately worsened and was readmitted to hospital, for another 10 days. Total inpatient time was 3 weeks!
