How Cefoclox XL Tablet works

Cefoclox XL Tablet is a combination of two antibiotics (Cefpodoxime Proxetil and Dicloxacillin) and a live microorganism (Lactobacillus). Both antibiotics work by preventing the formation of the bacterial protective covering which is essential for the survival of bacteria in the human body. This treats your infection, but may upset your digestive system by killing healthy gut bacteria as well. Lactobacillus is added to restore the balance of healthy bacteria.
