INTRODUCTION

CEFOLAC DROPS 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, genital tract and biliary tract in children (aged between 6 months up to 12 years). 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 CEFOLAC DROPS 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 CEFOLAC DROPS are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain and bloating. Consult your doctor immediately if any of these side effects worsen in your child.

USES OF CEFOLAC DROPS

It is used in children (aged between 6 months up to 12 years) to treat various bacterial infections such as:

  • Ear infections (such as otitis media)
  • Sinus infections (such as sinusitis)
  • Throat infections (such as tonsillitis and pharyngitis)
  • Respiratory tract infections (such as bronchitis and pneumonia)
  • Urinary tract infections (such as cystitis and kidney infections)
  • Genital tract infection (such as gonococcal urethritis)
  • Stomach and biliary tract infections (such as cholecystitis)

HOW CEFOLAC DROPS WORKS

CEFOLAC DROPS 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.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Administer CEFOLAC DROPS to your child as advised by your physician. It can be taken with or without food.

Shake the bottle well to loosen the dry powder. Add the sterile water provided with this pack up to the ring mark present on the bottle surface. Add extra water if required to adjust the volume up to the ring mark. Close the bottle tightly and shake the mixture well.

The quantity (ml) which is required to be administered to your child will be decided by your doctor. Do not stop therapy with CEFOLAC DROPS once the symptoms subside in your child. It is important to consume CEFOLAC DROPS for the stipulated duration recommended by your doctor to achieve better control over the infection.
