About Cefoprix-OF Tablet

Cefoprix-OF Tablet belongs to the group of medicines called broad-spectrum antibiotics, which are used to treat bacterial infections of the lungs (pneumonia), sinus (sinusitis), bladder (cystitis), ear infections, etc. Bacterial infections are caused due to the multiplication of harmful bacteria inside or on the body.
