INTRODUCTION

ACEF 50 DT TABLET contains Cefixime which belongs to the group of medicines called Antibiotics. It is used to treat bacterial infections of the ear, nose, throat, sinus, respiratory tract (bronchus, lungs), urinary tract and biliary tract in children (aged 6 months or older). It can also be used in the treatment of typhoid fever.

A bacterial infection can be defined as a proliferation of various harmful strains of bacteria in the body. They can affect any part(s) of the body including the respiratory tract, urinary tract, reproductive tract, eyes, ears, skin, soft tissue, or bones.

Therapy with ACEF 50 DT TABLET should be continued for the stipulated duration instructed by your doctor even if your child feels better during the midway of the therapy. Failing to complete the full course of the therapy or skipping doses in between the therapy may not result in adequate infection control.

Prior to the therapy, inform your doctor about the child’s pre-existing disease conditions such as any stomach problems or kidney problems as a precaution. The most common side effects of taking ACEF 50 DT TABLET are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain and bloating. Consult your doctor immediately if any of these side effects worsen in your child.

USES OF ACEF 50 DT TABLET

It is used in children (aged 6 months or older) to treat various bacterial infections such as:

  • Ear infections (Ex. otitis media)
  • Sinus infections (such as sinusitis)

HOW ACEF 50 DT TABLET WORKS

ACEF 50 DT TABLET is a powerful antibiotic with bacteriostatic properties. It kills the susceptible bacteria by blocking the bacterial cell wall synthesis. Unlike other cephalosporins, it can also remain unaffected by the toxic proteins produced by the bacteria (such as beta lactamases). Collectively, these actions destroy the susceptible bacteria, prevent their further growth and multiplication and reduce the severity of the infection.

Your doctor will decide the correct dose and duration of therapy for your child depending upon their age, body weight and severity of the infection.
