Side Effects When Taking Cefixime Drugs Exceed The Dose?
Tonight doctor, I just took cefixime 3 capsules at a time, do not know what I was thinking while taking the drug, I asked what the effect was?
Hello cho cho, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Previously, I will try to answer your question, Dr. Rio.
Cefixime is a cephalosporin class of antibiotics commonly used for the treatment of bacteria. These drugs include prescription drugs that can be consumed by adults and children. The preparations of this medicine are tablets, capsules, and syrup. The dosage for cefixime in adults is 200 - 400 mg / day, in one dose a day or divided into two doses.
What you need to see now is the dosage of the drug you are taking. Cefixime tablets are divided into 100 mg, 200 mg and 400 mg. What if you consume more than the daily dose of 400 mg / day.
Some of the side effects of using cefixime are:
Headache / Dizziness Diarrhea Abdominal pain Nausea / Vomiting Hypersensitivity / Allergies such as rashes, blisters, itching on the skin, swollen lips, swollen eyes. There are no specific symptoms about excessive use of cefixime. You should be aware of the symptoms above just at this time, if there are symptoms above and feel very heavy immediately consult your doctor directly.
Right now what you can do is:
Evaluate your situation. If complaints do not panic and immediately see a doctor. Drink and eat well to increase endurance. Get enough rest. When you want to take medicine, pay attention to the label and how to use the drug first. So the answers from me hopefully answer.
Thank you, good luck always. :)
