HOW FIXIMAX DT 200MG DISPERSIBLE TABLET WORKS

FIXIMAX DT 200MG DISPERSIBLE TABLET is a combination of Cefixime and Lactobacillus. Cefixime works against both gram-positive and gram-negative organisms. It acts by inhibiting bacterial cell wall synthesis, which is essential for the survival of bacteria in the human body. It inhibits transpeptidase (bacterial enzyme) and prevents the cross linking of bacterial cell wall, resulting in killing of bacteria. Lactobacillus acts as a probiotic, which is used along with antibiotic to restore the body`s natural microbial flora within the digestive tract. It inhibits or decreases the growth of harmful microorganisms in the gut by producing lactic acid. This collective action is useful in treating infections caused by bacteria.
