Caution For Usage
Incompatibilities: CUBICIN is not compatible with dextrose-containing diluents.
CUBICIN should not be used in conjunction with ReadyMED elastomeric infusion pumps (Cardinal Health, Inc.). Stability studies of CUBICIN solutions stored in ReadyMED elastomeric infusion pumps identified an impurity (2-mercaptobenzothiazole) leaching from this pump system into the CUBICIN solution.
Because only limited data are available on the compatibility of CUBICIN with other IV substances, additives and other medications should not be added to CUBICIN single-dose vials or infusion bags, or infused simultaneously through the same IV line. If the same IV line is used for sequential infusion of different drugs, the line should be flushed with a compatible intravenous solution before and after infusion with CUBICIN.
