What are the benefits of using Cefixime (Suprax)?

Cefixime pills are a very effective drug with a wide action spectrum. Their active ingredient is a substance from the cephalosporin group. Cefixime is characterized by its high effectiveness of fighting bacterial infections and also its relatively low toxicity. The use of Cefixime coupled with Azithromycin is recommended in treatment of venereal diseases. In such cases a single dose is usually sufficient to quickly heal the patient. This quick reaction to drug significantly lowers the risk of experiencing side effects. Cefixime is used with success to treat diseases such as:

What is the action of Cefixime (Suprax)?

Cephalosporines in Cefaxime are semi-synthetic beta-lactam antibiotics with a wide antibacterial spectrum of action. They bind to active centers of bacterial enzymes: carboxypeptidase and transpeptidase, thus blocking their action which results in inhibition of bacterial wall synthesis. The bacteria which are left without their defensive capabilities are eliminated quickly from the organism by natural components of body’s immune system. The antibiotic has a specific mild action and relatively low toxicity. Because of that, it can be used by the majority of patients without any actual limitations.

What people can use Cefixime (Suprax) pills?

Because of the low cephalosporine effect on the body, these pills may be used by most patients who do not have any intolerance to active ingredient or any substances in the treatment. Cefixime pills may be used as a supporting treatment in cases of Azithromycin-based gonorrhea treatments.

What people should not use Cefixime (Suprax) pills?

Cephalosporines in Cefixime pills are semi-synthetic antibiotics of low toxicity. According to FDA classification regarding the use of certain drugs during pregnancy, cephalosporines are part of B group. This means that during the tests conducted on animals there was no danger to the fetus, yet the effect on human pregnancy has not been confirmed in any clinical trials. Furthermore, it is not recommended to use Cefixime in confirmed cases of allergy to cephalosporine-containing antibiotics. As the producer did not make any tests regarding the safety and effectiveness of using Cefixime on children younger than 6 months, it is not recommended to use this drug for treating children of this age group.

What is more, Cefixime should not be taken by patients with diagnosed diabetes, kidney diseases and those using Warfarine.
