About KEFPOD CV SYRUP 50ML

KEFPOD CV SYRUP 50ML belongs to the group of medicines called antibiotics used to treat various bacterial infections such as pharyngitis/tonsillitis (throat infections), otitis media (ear infections), sinusitis (infection of the sinuses), community-acquired pneumonia, gonorrhoea (sexually transmitted disease), anorectal infections in women, skin, and urinary tract infections. Bacterial infections are caused due to the multiplication of harmful bacteria inside or on the body. Infectious or harmful bacteria can make you sick and reproduce quickly in your body. These harmful bacteria produce chemicals known as toxins, which can damage tissue and make you sick. KEFPOD CV SYRUP 50ML does not work against infections caused by the virus, including cold and flu.

KEFPOD CV SYRUP 50ML is a combination of two antibiotics, namely: Cefpodoxime (cephalosporin antibiotic) and Clavulanic acid (beta-lactamase inhibitor). Cefpodoxime works by preventing the formation of bacterial cell covering, which is necessary for their survival. Thereby, kills the bacteria. Clavulanic acid works by decreasing bacterial resistance and enhancing the activity of Cefpodoxime against the bacteria. Together, KEFPOD CV SYRUP 50ML helps to treat bacterial infections.

Take KEFPOD CV SYRUP 50ML with food. The tablet form of KEFPOD CV SYRUP 50ML should be swallowed as a whole; do not crush or chew the tablet. The liquid form of KEFPOD CV SYRUP 50ML should be taken by mouth using the measuring cup provided by the pack; shake the pack well before each use. The dose and duration of KEFPOD CV SYRUP 50ML can vary depending upon your condition and severity of the infection. Also, it is recommended to complete the course of medicine even if you feel better as it is an antibiotic, and leaving it in between may lead to even severe infection that will, in fact, stop responding to the antibiotic as well (antibiotic resistance).

In some cases, you may experience certain common side-effects such as diarrhoea, abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. 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.

Before starting KEFPOD CV SYRUP 50ML, please inform your doctor if you have any allergy (against any antibiotic), kidney or liver problems. Do not take KEFPOD CV SYRUP 50ML on your own as self-medication may lead to antibiotic-resistance in which antibiotics fail to act against specific bacterial infections. Consult your doctor before taking KEFPOD CV SYRUP 50ML if you are pregnant or planning for pregnancy. Avoid taking KEFPOD CV SYRUP 50ML if you are breastfeeding as KEFPOD CV SYRUP 50ML may pass into breast milk. Avoid alcohol consumption while taking KEFPOD CV SYRUP 50ML to prevent unpleasant side-effects. KEFPOD CV SYRUP 50ML may cause dizziness, so drive with caution.
