Answer

Many newer combinations have been shown to be effective as either a single agent or combination therapy. Combinations include extended-spectrum cephalosporin, metronidazole, and ampicillin. Single-agent regimens include piperacillin and tazobactam; mezlocillin; imipenem; meropenem; ticarcillin and clavulanate; or ampicillin and sulbactam, which can also be combined with metronidazole.
