FAQs ABOUT CEFADROX CV TABLET
Q: How does CEFADROX CV TABLET function?

Clavulanic acid is a beta-lactamase inhibitor that works by binding and inhibiting beta-lactamase (an enzyme that destroys antibiotic activity) produced by bacterial cells and thereby preventing the reduction in antibacterial activity.
