Does Cefixime Contain Ibuprofen
Good night,. These days I have been taking cefixime and vit medicine. whose name is etabion. Is cefixime related to ibuprofen because recently there has been a lot of news that ibuprofen is not good at the time of this corona virus outbreak. thank you
Hello Dela, Thank you for the question.
Cefixime is the name of an antibiotic drug class (not a drug brand) that is used to treat respiratory infections, ear infections, urinary tract infections, and skin infections. This drug is available in two doses, 100 mg and 200 mg. The use of this drug is usually adjusted to the type of infection and its severity. This antibiotic is a class of hard drugs that must be used in accordance with the doctor's recommendations. You are not recommended to take any antibiotics without doctor's advice to avoid unnecessary side effects of the drug and to avoid bacterial immunity against antibiotics due to improper use. Cefixime is different from ibuprofen. Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is used to treat fever, pain, and inflammation. This drug is also a class of hard drugs that should be used in accordance with doctor's recommendations.
Indeed some time ago it was rumored about the use of ibuprofen which can cause sufferers who have corona virus infections to have symptoms that get worse. However, this news does not have a strong basis / evidence so that it cannot be concluded that ibuprofen can cause the patient's condition to get worse so it must be avoided. The World Health Organization (WHO) also does not recommend avoiding ibuprofen. Thus, you may use ibuprofen as long as the doctor recommends, yes.
Hopefully this information helps you.
