Description

Cefixime is an antibiotic that is used to treat various bacterial infections. It belongs to a class of drugs called cephalosporins. Cefixime 200mg is a common dosage strength prescribed for many infections, including urinary tract infections, respiratory tract infections, and certain sexually transmitted infections. It is usually taken orally, either with or without food, as directed by a healthcare professional. The dosage and duration of treatment may vary depending on the specific infection and individual patient factors. It is important to complete the full course of treatment as prescribed, even if symptoms improve before completion.

DOSE

The dosage of cefixime 200mg can vary depending on the specific infection being treated and the patient's age, weight, and overall health. It is important to follow the instructions provided by your healthcare professional or the instructions on the prescription label.

In general, the usual adult dosage for most infections is 200mg once a day, either as a single dose or divided into two doses taken every 12 hours. However, it is important to consult your healthcare professional for the correct dosage and duration of treatment specific to your condition.

For pediatric patients, the dosage is usually based on weight. The usual pediatric dosage for most infections in children over 6 months old is 8mg/kg once a day, not to exceed the adult dosage of 200mg per day.

It is important to use cefixime as prescribed and to complete the full course of treatment, even if symptoms improve before completion. Do not adjust or stop the medication without consulting your healthcare professional.

 

PRECAUTION

Before taking cefixime 200mg, inform your healthcare professional about any allergies, especially to cephalosporin antibiotics or penicillin, and disclose your medical history, particularly concerning liver or kidney disease, gastrointestinal disease, or other chronic conditions.

Watch out for diarrhea, which may indicate a new infection, and report severe or persistent diarrhea to your healthcare professional. Extended or repeated use of cefixime can lead to secondary infections, so consult your healthcare professional if new symptoms arise or your condition worsens. Note that cefixime may reduce the effectiveness of certain birth control methods, so discuss alternative contraception or additional forms with your healthcare professional.

Cefixime is generally not recommended during pregnancy unless necessary, so evaluate the risks and benefits with your healthcare professional if you are pregnant or planning to conceive. It is unclear if cefixime passes into breast milk, so consult your healthcare professional before breastfeeding while using this medication. Always follow your healthcare professional's instructions and address any questions or concerns regarding cefixime 200mg.
