Drug Mode of Action ::
Benzathine benzylpenicillin has the same antimicrobial action as benzylpenicillin which exerts its bactericidal action on growing and dividing bacteria by inhibiting bacterial cell wall synthesis. IM admin results in a prolonged effect, but because of its relatively low blood concentrations, its use should be restricted to microorganisms that are highly susceptible to it.
Drug Interactions ::
Probenecid prolongs T1/2 of benzathine benzylpenicillin. Bacteriostatic drugs e.g. chloramphenicol, tetracyclines; other antibacterials; anticoagulants.
