USES OF CEFIMO CV TABLET

It is used in adults and in children (aged 10 years or above) to treat bacterial infections such as:

  • Ear infections (Ex. otitis media)
  • Throat infections (such as tonsillitis and pharyngitis)
  • Respiratory tract infections (such as bronchitis and pneumonia)
  • Urinary tract infections (such as cystitis, cystourethritis, pyelonephritis)

HOW CEFIMO CV TABLET WORKS

CEFIMO CV TABLET is a powerful antibiotic. It contains two medicines namely, cefixime and clavulanic acid. Cefixime kills the susceptible bacteria by blocking the bacterial cell wall synthesis.

Clavulanic acid stops the bacteria from producing toxic proteins (such as beta lactamases) that can reduce the effects of antibiotics. Collectively, these actions destroy the susceptible bacteria, prevent their further growth and multiplication which in turn reduces the severity of the infection.
