Cefpodoxime Proxetil 50mg + Clavulanic Acid 31.25mg / 5ml Syrup is a potent antibiotic formulated using two active medicines. The syrup is given to children to treat a wide range of critical bacterial infections targeting the ear, throat, lungs, skin, and urinary tract. It is the most effective syrup that works by stopping the growth of bacteria and preventing the spread. In combination, both medications work differently like Cefpodoxime Proxetil which is an antibiotic that prevents the formation of the bacterial protective covering essential for the survival of bacteria. While Clavulanic Acid (beta-lactamase inhibitor) reduces the resistance and improves the activity of Cefpodoxime Proxetil against bacteria. And together they treat bacterial infections.
Further, the medicine starts showing results within 3 to 5 days if given properly and can cure the infection of its roots when the full course is finished. As the syrup is the most effective so also offers some common side-effects that include Nausea, Vomiting, Abdominal pain, Diarrhea, Headache, etc., that are mild and temporary. Usually, these episodes subside once the body adapts to the medicine. But in case these common side-effects persist or worsen then call your doctor or pharmacist promptly. However, stomach upset can be avoided by giving the syrup with food.
