Besides this, it also treats typhoid fever and STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) like chlamydia and gonorrhoea. A bacterial infection happens when harmful bacteria enter inside the body and start multiplying.

BRUTACEF O TABLET prevents the release of a chemical messenger (mucopeptides) by the bacteria, thereby weakening and destroying the bacterial cell wall. BRUTACEF O TABLET is a broad range antibiotic that works against a wide range of both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.

Bacterial infections, Typhoid fever, Urinary tract infection (UTI)
BRUTACEF O TABLET is a combination of cephalosporin and fluoroquinolone antibiotics that works by killing the bacteria (bactericidal). Cefixime works by stopping the growth of bacteria by inhibiting the formation of a protective layer required by the bacteria or its growth. At the same time, Ofloxacin acts by blocking the action of a chemical messenger, which helps the genetic material of bacteria to survive. The doctor usually prescribes BRUTACEF O TABLET for the treatment of typhoid fever and urinary tract infections. Besides this, it also treats bacterial infections of the prostate, skin, lungs, sexually transmitted infections like gonorrhoea (cervical/urethral), ear infections (acute otitis media), upper respiratory tract infections (URTI), lower respiratory tract infection, tonsillitis (inflammation of the tonsils) and pharyngitis (inflammation of the pharynx).
