💊 Profile

Benethamine penicillin is a poorly soluble derivative of benzylpenicillin with similar actions and uses, although it is not recommended for chronic, severe, or deep-seated infections. After deep intramuscular injection it forms a depot from which it is slowly absorbed and hydrolysed to benzylpenicillin. Benethamine penicillin is usually given with benzylpenicillin sodium and also sometimes procaine benzylpenicillin to produce both an immediate and a prolonged effect; overall, the effect lasts for 2 to 3 days.
