About Swich CV-325 Tablet 10's

Swich CV-325 Tablet 10's 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. Swich CV-325 Tablet 10's does not work against infections caused by the virus, including cold and flu.

Swich CV-325 Tablet 10's 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, Swich CV-325 Tablet 10's helps to treat bacterial infections.

Take Swich CV-325 Tablet 10's with food. The tablet form of Swich CV-325 Tablet 10's should be swallowed as a whole; do not crush or chew the tablet. The liquid form of Swich CV-325 Tablet 10's 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 Swich CV-325 Tablet 10's 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 Swich CV-325 Tablet 10's, please inform your doctor if you have any allergy (against any antibiotic), kidney or liver problems. Do not take Swich CV-325 Tablet 10's 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 Swich CV-325 Tablet 10's if you are pregnant or planning for pregnancy. Avoid taking Swich CV-325 Tablet 10's if you are breastfeeding as Swich CV-325 Tablet 10's may pass into breast milk.
