Warnings And Precautions
  • Treatment with sulfadiazine tablet 500 mg should be given with caution to patients with impaired renal or hepatic function and to all those with serious allergy or bronchial asthma.
  • Do not use sulfonamides for the treatment of group A beta hemolytic streptococcal infections. In an established infection, they will not eradicate the streptococcus and, therefore, will not prevent sequelae such as glomerulonephritis and rheumatic fever.
  • Throughout sulfadiazine 500 mg tablet treatment, adequate fluid intake should be maintained in order to prevent crystalluria and stone formation.
  • Patients taking treatment with sulfadiazine pills should drink an eight ounce glass of water with each dose of sulfadiazine and at frequent intervals throughout the day.
  • Complete blood counts (CBC) and urinalysis with careful microscopic examinations needs to be performed frequently in patients receiving sulfonamides.
  • Patients taking treatment with sulfadiazine 500 mg should promptly report the onset of sore throat, pallor, fever, purpura or jaundice, since these may be early indications of serious blood disorders.
  • Use of Sulfadiazine therapy is restricted in nursing mothers because the sulfonamides cross the placenta, are excreted in the breast milk and may be responsible for causing kernicterus.
