Cefax CV Dry Syrup


Your child’s medicine at a glance

Cefax CV Dry Syrup is a potent antibiotic made up of two active medicines. It is given to children to treat a wide range of severe bacterial infections targeting the ear, sinus, throat, lungs, skin, and urinary tract.

Cefax CV Dry Syrup is best given an hour before or two hours after meals as that ensures better absorption. Giving it with meals is a good option if your child develops a stomach upset. Adhere to the dose, time, and way prescribed by the doctor because the dose and duration are advised depending upon the type and severity of the infection. In case your child vomits within 30 minutes of the intake, give the same dose again but do not double dose if it is time for the next dose.

Cefax CV Dry Syrup does not treat cold and flu symptoms which usually occur due to a viral infection. Always remember that antibiotics should not be given in viral infections as they do not impact viruses. Doctors prescribe this medicine for cough and cold only when they detect any underlying secondary bacterial infection.

Some of the minor and temporary side effects of this medicine include vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, abdominal pain, and allergy. These episodes should subside once your child’s body adapts to the medicine. If these side effects persist or become bothersome for your child, report to the doctor without any delay.

The doctor should be aware of your child’s complete medical history as this helps plan your child’s overall treatment. So, inform the doctor if your child has or had any previous episode of allergy, heart problem, blood disorder, birth defects, airway obstruction, lung anomaly, gastrointestinal problem, skin disorder, liver impairment, and kidney malfunction.

Uses of Cefax CV Dry Syrup in children

Benefits of Cefax CV Dry Syrup for your child

In Treatment of Bacterial infections

Cefax CV Dry Syrup helps treat infections that are caused by bacteria. It contains two medicines, Cefixime, and Clavulanic acid. Cefixime stops the growth of infection-causing bacteria. Clavulanic Acid enhances the activity of Cefixime against the bacteria as well as reduces resistance of the bacteria to the antibiotic. This medicine usually makes you feel better within a few days, but you should continue taking it as prescribed even when you feel better to make sure that all the infectious bacteria are killed and do not become resistant.

Side effects of Cefax CV Dry Syrup in children

Cefax CV Dry Syrup does not pose serious side effects and is well-tolerated by children. In case the side effects do occur, they’re likely to subside once the body adapts to the medicine. Consult your child’s doctor if these side effects persist or bother your child. The most common side effects include-

How can I give Cefax CV Dry Syrup to my child?

Take this medicine in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Dissolve the powder in sterile water. Shake well and use. Cefax CV Dry Syrup may be taken with or without food, but it is better to take it at a fixed time.

How Cefax CV Dry Syrup works

Cefax CV Dry Syrup is a potent antibiotic comprising two active medicines: Cefixime and Clavulanic acid. Cefixime works by preventing the formation of the bacterial protective covering (cell wall) which is essential for the survival of the bacteria. By doing so, this medicine stops the infection-causing bacteria from growing and prevents the infection from spreading without making the bacteria resistant to further treatment. The second ingredient, clavulanic acid is a beta-lactamase inhibitor. It reduces resistance and enhances the activity of cefixime against bacteria.

FAQs

Q. What if I give too much of Cefax CV Dry Syrup by mistake?

If you think you have given too much of Cefax CV Dry Syrup to your child, immediately speak to a doctor. Although an extra dose of Cefax CV Dry Syrup does not usually cause any harm, overdoses do increase the risk of unwanted side effects and may even worsen your child’s condition.

Q. Are there any possible serious side effects of Cefax CV Dry Syrup?

Some serious side effects of this medicine include persistent vomiting, kidney damage, allergy, diarrhea, and severe gastrointestinal infections. Always consult your child’s doctor for help in such a situation.

Q. Can other medicines be given at the same time as Cefax CV Dry Syrup?

Cefax CV Dry Syrup can sometimes interact with other medicines or substances. Tell your doctor about any other medicines your child is taking before starting Cefax CV Dry Syrup. Also, check with your child’s doctor before giving any medicine to your child.

Q. Can I get my child vaccinated while on treatment with Cefax CV Dry Syrup?

Antibiotics usually do not interfere with the ingredients in vaccines or cause a bad reaction in a child who has just been vaccinated. However, children taking antibiotics should not get vaccinated until they recover from the illness. As soon as your child feels better, the vaccine can be given.

Q. The mucus coming out of my child’s nose is yellow-green. Is it a sign of a bacterial infection?

The color of mucus does not represent the kind of infection your child has. So, yellow or green mucus in the nose does not mean that antibiotics are needed. During the common cold, it is normal for the symptoms to last for 7-10 days and for the mucus to change texture and color.

Q. My child is having a sore throat and ear infection. Can I give antibiotics?

No. More than 80% of sore throats and ear infections are caused by a virus, and antibiotics are not given for viral infections. If your child has a sore throat, runny nose, a barky cough, pain, and discharge from the ear, it is most likely because of a virus. Consult your child’s doctor to seek guidance.
