UNASYN is an injectable antibacterial combination consisting of the semisynthetic
antibiotic ampicillin sodium and the beta-lactamase inhibitor sulbactam sodium
for intravenous and intramuscular administration.
Ampicillin sodium is derived from the penicillin nucleus, 6-aminopenicillanic
acid. Chemically, it is monosodium (2S, 5R, 6R)-6-[(R)-2-amino-2-phenylacetamido]-
3,3-dimethyl-7-oxo-4-thia-1-azabicyclo[3.2.0]heptane-2-carboxylate and has a
molecular weight of 371.39. Its chemical formula is C16H18N3NaO4S.
The structural formula is:








Sulbactam sodium is a derivative of the basic penicillin nucleus. Chemically,
sulbactam sodium is sodium penicillinate sulfone; sodium (2S, 5R)-3,3-dimethyl-7-oxo-4-thia­
1-azabicyclo [3.2.0] heptane-2-carboxylate 4,4-dioxide. Its chemical formula
is C8H10NNaO5S with a molecular weight of 255.22.
The structural formula is:








UNASYN, ampicillin sodium/sulbactam sodium parenteral combination, is available
as a white to off-white dry powder for reconstitution. UNASYN dry powder is
freely soluble in aqueous diluents to yield pale yellow to yellow solutions
containing ampicillin sodium and sulbactam sodium equivalent to 250 mg ampicillin
per mL and 125 mg sulbactam per mL. The pH of the solutions is between 8.0 and
10.0.
Dilute solutions (up to 30 mg ampicillin and 15 mg sulbactam per mL) are essentially
colorless to pale yellow. The pH of dilute solutions remains the same.
UNASYN pharmacy bulk package is a vial containing a sterile preparation of
ampicillin sodium and sulbactam sodium for parenteral use that contains many
single doses. The Pharmacy Bulk Package is for use in a pharmacy admixture setting;
it provides many single doses of UNASYN for addition to suitable parenteral
fluids in the preparation of admixtures for intravenous infusion. (See DIRECTIONS
