How Cefoclox Dry Syrup works

Cefoclox Dry Syrup is a combination of three medicines: Cefpodoxime Proxetil, Cloxacillin and Lactobacillus. Cefpodoxime Proxetil and Cloxacillin are antibiotics which work by preventing the formation of the bacterial protective covering which is essential for the survival of bacteria in the human body.
