About Codox L Capsule 10's

Codox L Capsule 10's belongs to a group of antibiotics used to treat bacterial infections such as chest, lung, nasal infections, urinary tract infections, eye infections, sexually transmitted infections (like gonorrhoea, syphilis, chlamydia), and malaria when chloroquine is not effective. Besides this, Codox L Capsule 10's also treats acne-like lesions caused by rosacea. However, it does not treat facial redness caused by rosacea. 

Codox L Capsule 10's contains Doxycycline (antibiotic) and Lactobacillus (beneficial lactic acid-producing bacteria). Doxycycline prevents bacterial cells' growth by preventing the formation of the outer protein layer of bacteria (cell wall) responsible for bacteria's growth and multiplication. On the other hand, Lactobacillus is a beneficial lactic acid-producing bacteria (good bacteria) which supports the growth of friendly bacteria in the intestine, maintaining a healthy balance of microflora in the gut environment. Lactobacillus prevents diarrhoea and loss of beneficial bacteria in the intestine lost due to a prolonged intake of Codox L Capsule 10's. Thus, together Codox L Capsule 10's helps in the prevention of infections.

Leaving it in between may lead to even severe infection that will, in fact, stop responding to the antibiotic (antibiotic resistance). You may experience certain common side-effects such as nausea, vomiting, headache, and allergy in some cases. Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.
