Cefixime Drug Information

Drug Information: Cefixime is a broad-spectrum antibiotic, meaning that it is active against a wide range of bacteria. Cefixime is used to treat acute (short-term) bacterial infections such as urinary tract infections, thoracic and throat infections, and ear infections. Cefixime kills the infection by killing the bacteria.

Some people are allergic to penicillin antibiotics and may not be able to take cefixime; So if you are allergic to antibiotics, talk to your doctor.


Contraindications to the drug Cefixime

• Pay attention to the expiration date of the medicine and do not take it if the medicine in your hand has expired.

Never give the medicine to anyone else, even if you have the same symptoms.

• Do not take more than the dose prescribed by your doctor.

Check for drug interactions and be sure to tell your doctor what other medications you are taking.


Cefixime drug interaction

Drug interactions may alter drug performance and increase the risk of serious side effects. Make a list of all the medicines (including prescription / over-the-counter medicines and herbal products) you use and share them with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not change the dose of your medicine without consulting your doctor or stop taking the medicine.

Some medications that may interact with cefixime include "blood thinners" (eg, warfarin) and bacterial vaccines.

Although most antibiotics are unlikely to affect pregnancy control, antibiotics such as rifampin and rifabutin reduce the effectiveness of hormonal contraceptives such as pills, patches, or rings. Consult your doctor before using antibiotics.

Cefixime may interact with some laboratory materials and give false positive results, for example Cefixime may give false positive results with some diabetic urine test materials (copper sulfate-type). It may also affect the results of certain laboratory tests. Tell your doctor or nurse before taking any tests that you are taking any medication.


Tips to consider before taking Cefixime

Some medications are not suitable for people with certain conditions, and some medications may be prescribed if additional treatment is needed; Therefore, it is best for your doctor to be aware of the following before taking Cefixime:

• If you have a history of an allergic reaction to a drug. Be sure to tell your doctor, especially if you are allergic to penicillin.

• If you are pregnant or breastfeeding your baby.

• If you have any kidney problems.

• If you are taking certain medications. These medicines include all the medicines available, whether you are prescribed them or taking them without a doctor's prescription, such as herbal medicines and complementary medicines.


Possible side effects of Cefixime

Important Note: An itchy rash, swollen face, swollen mouth, or difficulty breathing are signs of antibiotic sensitivity. If you experience such side effects, do not continue taking Cefixime and talk to your doctor immediately.

Consult your doctor if you have any other symptoms that you feel are due to the use of Cefixime.
