About Sporidex Drops

Sporidex Drops belongs to the group of antibiotics called cephalosporin used to treat various bacterial infections of the nose, lungs, ear, bones, joints, skin, urinary tract, prostate gland, and reproductive system. Besides this, Sporidex Drops is also used to treat dental 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. Sporidex Drops does not work against infections caused by the virus, including cold and flu.

Sporidex Drops is bactericidal in nature. Sporidex Drops works by blocking enzymes responsible for making peptidoglycan, an important component of the bacterial cell wall. Thus, it kills the bacteria and helps in treating and preventing the spread of infections.

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 Sporidex Drops, please inform your doctor if you have any allergy (against any antibiotic), kidney or liver problems. Do not take Sporidex Drops on your own, as self-medication may lead to antibiotic resistance in which antibiotics fail to act against specific bacterial infections. Avoid taking Sporidex Drops if you are pregnant or breastfeeding unless prescribed by a doctor. Sporidex Drops should not be given to children below 5 years. Sporidex Drops may affect certain laboratory test results, such as blood tests for liver function, glucose tests, and Coombs tests.
