Bacterial infections are caused due to the multiplication of harmful bacteria inside or on the body.

Supercef 1Gm Inj contains 'Ceftriaxone', which works by interfering with the formation of bacterial cell walls, thereby killing the bacteria. Thus, Supercef 1Gm Inj helps in treating bacterial infection.

Although not everybody experiences these side effects, if they occur, consult your doctor.

Talk to your doctor before taking Supercef 1Gm Inj if you have/had received calcium-containing products recently, had diarrhoea after taking antibiotics, inflammation of the bowel, kidney stones, or any other illness.

Bacterial infection: A bacterial infection is a condition in which harmful bacteria enter, multiply, and infect the body. Harmful bacteria produce chemicals known as toxins, which can damage tissue and cause illness. They can target any body part and multiply very quickly. Symptoms include fever, chills, and fatigue.
