CEFIXIME+OFLOXACIN belongs to a group of medications called ‘cephalosporin antibiotics’ primarily used for the treatment of a wide range of bacterial infections of the skin, ears, lungs, prostate and urinary tract. Besides this, it also treats typhoid fever and STD’s (sexually transmitted diseases) like chlamydia and gonorrhoea. A bacterial infection happens when harmful bacteria enter inside the body and start multiplying. These harmful bacteria are responsible for producing toxins that can cause the diseases like strep throat, urinary tract infection (UTI), bacterial food poisoning, gonorrhoea, bacterial meningitis, cellulitis, lyme disease, and tetanus. CEFIXIME+OFLOXACIN do not work against viral infections like flu and colds.

CEFIXIME+OFLOXACIN contains ‘Cefixime’ (cephalosporin antibiotic) and ‘Ofloxacin’ (fluoroquinolone antibiotic) that works by preventing the formation of the outer covering of the bacteria (cell wall) required for their survival. CEFIXIME+OFLOXACIN prevent the release of a chemical messenger (mucopeptides) by the bacteria, thereby weakening and destroying the bacterial cell wall. CEFIXIME+OFLOXACIN is a broad range of antibiotic that works against a wide range of both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.
