Hello, thanks for the question.
The drug you mentioned contains cefixime, which is one type of antibiotic that is used to kill bacteria. This drug is widely used to treat bacterial infections in the respiratory tract and urinary tract. The use of drugs should be used in accordance with doctor's advice. The medicine you use has a half-life of about 12 hours so it is used 2 times a day. Taking the drug for more than the recommended dose can have a dangerous effect if it exceeds the safety range of the dose. But for drugs that your child is using is still within the safety range of a dose that can be tolerated so that if you only slightly overdose, there will be no harmful effects for your body. Sometimes side effects of drugs do not occur immediately after taking the drug, but these effects can also be accumulative, meaning that the more often you take the drug or the greater the dose of the drug you consume, the more likely the side effects will occur in the future. Therefore it is better to take the medicine according to the doctor's recommendations and it is recommended to take the medicine at the same time every day.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
