Antibiotic Taking Rules?
I want to ask, I was given the drug Melixim by the doctor, it’s been 2 days I only took it 1 time because I just read that the recommendation is 2 times a day and I just found out that it’s an antibiotic because it’s been 2 days I’ve taken 1 time whether I have to continue 1 time a day until it runs out or change to 2 times a day?
Hello Yaya, Thank you for using the Alokdokter page.
Melixim is a drug trademark containing cefixime, which is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections. The recommendation to take this antibiotic is twice a day, so you should take this drug as directed. However, because you have taken it once a day before, you will need to buy this medicine again to meet the doctor's recommended treatment time according to the correct dosage. In the future, please be more careful in taking your medicine, make sure you take the medicine according to the doctor's recommendation. Antibiotics that are not taken as recommended cannot effectively treat the infection and have the potential to cause bacterial resistance to the antibiotic.
Hope this information is helpful.
