Medicinal Benefits/Description: It is a combiantion antibiotic used for the treatment of various bacterial infections. Popularly known as cephalosporin antibiotic, its function includes stopping the growth of bacteria in the body. It is useful in the treatment and cure of sinus infections for patients with pneumonia, shigella (an infection causing severe diarrhea), salmor infection provoking diarrhea, and, typhoid fever (a serious infection more frequently occurring in developing/under developed nations.) Other infections treated by Cefixime are bronchitis (infection in the windpipes leading to the lungs), gonorrhea (STD), urinary tract infection (UTI), and, infections in the ears, throat, and, tonsils.
As per studies conducted, Cefixime is proven to be more effective than other medications prescribed by doctors for similar bacterial infections. The cure rate was 98% (90/97 patients in Cefixime 800md orally) compared to 95.6% (Amoxicillin and probenecid group). Hence, making it a superior agent.
Lactic acid bacteria is a microorganism that helps in restoring the balance of good bacteria in the gut, which may have gotten upset due to infections or antibiotic use.

How it works: It works by preventing the formation of a protective covering of bacteria necessary for the survival of the bacteria. Clavulanic Acid is a beta-lactamase inhibitor that reduces resistance and enhances the activity of Cefixime against bacteria.

Never double your dose, even if you miss a dose or want additional medical benefits.
