SIFY-CV CIFIXIME 200MG + POTASIUM CLAVULANATE 125MG
Mode of Actions:
- Cefixime is used in the treatment of bacterial infections. It is used for short-term treatment of bacterial infections of urinary tract, skin and soft-tissue, ear, bone, blood, abdomen, genital and lungs (pneumonia). It is also used to prevent infections after surgery.
- Cefixime is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. This medication is known as a cephalosporin antibiotic. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. This antibiotic treats only bacterial infections.
- Potassium Clavulanate is used in the treatment of bacterial infections.
- Potassium Clavulanate is a beta-lactamase inhibitor. It works by blocking an enzyme (beta lactamase) produced by bacteria to inactivate antibiotics. This reduces resistance and enhances the activity of antibiotics against bacteria.
- Clavulanic acid and its salts and esters. The acid is a suicide inhibitor of bacterial beta-lactamase enzymes from Streptomyces clavuligerus. Administered alone, it has only weak antibacterial activity against most organisms, but given in combination with other beta-lactam antibiotics it prevents antibiotic inactivation by microbial lactamase.
- Clavulanate Potassium is a semi-synthetic beta-lactamase inhibitor isolated from streptomyces. Clavunalate potassium contains a beta-lactam ring and binds strongly to beta-lactamase at or near its active site. This protects other beta-lactam antibiotics from beta-lactamase catalysis. This drug is used in conjunction with beta-lactamase susceptible penicillins to treat infections caused by beta-lactamase producing organisms.
- Cefixime is an antibiotic. It kills bacteria by preventing them from forming the bacterial protective covering which is needed for them to survive.
- Cefixime is used to treat certain infections caused by bacteria such as bronchitis (infection of the airway tubes leading to the lungs); gonorrhea (a sexually transmitted disease); and infections of the ears, throat, tonsils, and urinary tract.
- Cefixime is in a class of medications called cephalosporin antibiotics. It works by killing bacteria.
- Antibiotics such as cefixime will not work for colds, flu, or other viral infections. Using antibiotics when they are not needed increases your risk of getting an infection later that resists antibiotic treatment.
- Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once a day.
- it indicates Acute bronchitis, otitis media, phyaryngitis & tonsilitis, billiary tract infection, Uncomplicated UTI and Uncomplicated Gonorrhoea.
Common side effects are mild nausea, stomach pain, constipation, loss of appetite; anxiety, drowsiness; increased night-time urination; headache; runny nose, sore throat, cough; or vaginal itching or discharge.
