What is Pentids® Penicillin G Tablet?
Benzylpenicillin, also known as penicillin G or BENPEN, and in US military slang “Peanut Butter Shot” is an antibiotic used to treat a number of bacterial infections. This includes pneumonia, strep throat, syphilis, necrotizing enterocolitis, diphtheria, gas gangrene, leptospirosis, cellulitis, and tetanus. It is not a first-line agent for pneumococcal meningitis. Due to benzylpenicillin’s limited bioavailability for oral medications, it is generally taken as an injection in the form of sodium, potassium, benzathine, or procaine salt. Benzylpenicillin is given by injection into a vein or muscle.
Side effects include diarrhea, seizures, and allergic reactions including anaphylaxis. When used to treat syphilis or Lyme disease a reaction known as Jarisch–Herxheimer may occur. It is not recommended for those with a history of penicillin allergy. Use during pregnancy is generally safe in the penicillin and β-lactam class of medications.
