CEFIPOWER TABLET belongs to a group of medications called 'cephalosporin antibiotics' primarily used for the treatment of a wide range of bacterial infections of the skin, ears, lungs, prostate and urinary tract. 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. These harmful bacteria are responsible for producing toxins that can cause diseases like strep throat, urinary tract infection (UTI), bacterial food poisoning, gonorrhoea, bacterial meningitis, cellulitis, Lyme disease, and tetanus. CEFIPOWER TABLET does not work against viral infections like flu and colds.
CEFIPOWER TABLET contains 'Cefixime' (cephalosporin antibiotic) and 'Ofloxacin' (fluoroquinolone antibiotic) that works by preventing the formation of the outer covering of the bacteria (cell wall) required for their survival. CEFIPOWER TABLET prevents the release of a chemical messenger (mucopeptides) by the bacteria, thereby weakening and destroying the bacterial cell wall. CEFIPOWER TABLET is a broad range antibiotic that works against a wide range of both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.
