About Onexim-AZ Tablet

Onexim-AZ Tablet belongs to the group of medicines called antibiotics used to treat bacterial infections of the ear, skin, nose, throat, chest, lungs, and urinary tract. Onexim-AZ Tablet is a broad-spectrum antibiotic effective against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.
