About Refzil O 500mg Tablet 6's

Refzil O 500mg Tablet 6's belongs to a class of medications called ‘Antibiotics’ used to treat bacterial infections. It is used in the treatment of various bacterial infections such as pharyngitis (sore throat), tonsillitis (swollen tonsils), otitis media (middle ear infection), sinusitis (sinus infection), bronchitis (inflammation of the bronchi or lower respiratory tract infection) and skin infections. Bacterial infections are caused due to the multiplication of harmful bacteria inside or on the body. These harmful bacteria produce chemicals known as toxins, which can damage tissue and make you sick. Refzil O 500mg Tablet 6's does not work against infections caused by the virus, including cold and flu.

Refzil O 500mg Tablet 6's contains ‘Cefprozil’ which is a cephalosporin antibiotic. It has bactericidal action (kills bacteria). It works by preventing the formation of the cell wall (outer protective layer of bacteria, which is essential for its survival) by preventing protein's synthesis. Thus, it helps in treating and preventing the spread of infections.

It would be best if you took Refzil O 500mg Tablet 6's exactly as prescribed by your doctor.

Before taking Refzil O 500mg Tablet 6's, inform your doctor if you have intestinal problems such as colitis (inflammation of the intestine) and kidney diseases. Do not take Refzil O 500mg Tablet 6's on your own as self-medication may lead to antibiotic-resistance in which antibiotics fail to act against specific bacterial infections. Refzil O 500mg Tablet 6's is probably safe when used in pregnant and breastfeeding women. Refzil O 500mg Tablet 6's should be used with caution in children and elderly people as dosage adjustments are necessary.  Refzil O 500mg Tablet 6's may not interact with alcohol.
