DESCRIPTION: Orbenin-DC (benzathine cloxacillin) is a stable, nonirritating suspension of benzathine cloxacillin containing the equivalent of 500 mg of cloxacillin per disposable syringe. Orbenin-DC is manufactured by a nonsterilizing process.
Benzathine cloxacillin is a semisynthetic penicillin derived from the penicillin nucleus, 6-amino-penicillanic acid. Benzathine cloxacillin is the benzathine salt of 6-[3-(2-chlorophenyl)-5-methylisoxazolyl-4-carboxamido] penicillanic acid.
The low solubility of Orbenin-DC results in an extended period of activity. Therefore, directions for use should be followed explicitly.
