Introduction of FEX (WIZAD) Tablet

FEX 250 MG TABLET is an antibiotic medicine used to treat bacterial infections in your body. It is effective in infections of the lungs, ear, throat, urinary tract, skin, soft tissues, bones, and joints. It kills bacteria, which helps to improve your symptoms and cure the infection.

FEX 250 MG TABLET may be taken with or without food. You should take it regularly at evenly spaced intervals as per the schedule prescribed by your doctor. Taking it at the same time every day will help you to remember to take it.

Before using it, you should tell your doctor if you are allergic to any antibiotics or have any kidney or liver problems.
