Your child’s medicine at a glance

Odoxil 125mg Tablet DT is an antibiotic medicine that is given to children for the treatment of a wide range of bacterial infections targeting the skin, throat, and tonsils. It may also be prescribed as a second line of treatment for urinary tract infections.

Odoxil 125mg Tablet DT may be given with or without food. However, if your child develops a stomach upset, prefer giving it with food. The dose and duration of the medicine will depend on the type and severity of the infection. Stick to the dose, time, and way prescribed by the doctor. If your child vomits within 30 minutes of taking this medicine, give the same dose again but do not double dose if it is almost time for the next dose.

Odoxil 125mg Tablet DT may cause some minor and temporary side effects such as vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, and abdominal pain. Usually, these subside once your child’s body adapts to the medicine. However, if these side effects persist or become bothersome for your child, report to the doctor immediately.

Inform the doctor about your child’s complete medical history, including any previous episode of allergy, heart problems, blood disorders, birth defects, lung anomaly, gastrointestinal problems, skin disorders, or liver and kidney malfunction. This information is critical for dose alterations and for planning your child’s overall treatment.

Q. Can I get my child vaccinated while on treatment with Odoxil 125mg Tablet DT?

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. Which lab tests may my child undergo while taking Odoxil 125mg Tablet DT on a long-term basis?

The doctor may prescribe kidney and liver function tests periodically to keep a check on your child’s condition.

Q. My child has a runny nose and I can see yellow-green color mucus oozing out from my child’s nose. What does it indicate?

During a common cold, it is normal for mucus to thicken up and change from clear to yellow or green. This color change of mucus does not necessarily indicate the need for antibiotics. These symptoms often last for 7-10 days. However, if the symptoms persist or worsen, consult your doctor.

Q. Can Odoxil 125mg Tablet DT impact my child’s digestive system?

Children generally have a sensitive stomach, and they may develop a stomach upset while taking medicines. Odoxil 125mg Tablet DT is an antibiotic and its use may affect or compromise the good bacteria in their gastrointestinal tract. It may kill off the good bacteria along with the bad and increase the risk of developing other infections. In case your child is having diarrhea while on Odoxil 125mg Tablet DT, do not abruptly stop the medicine course. Instead, call your child’s doctor to ask about the next steps. The doctor may suggest an alternative dose to reduce the chances of such side effects.

Q. Can Odoxil 125mg Tablet DT lead to bacterial resistance in my child?

Yes, irregular treatment, repeated use, and misuse of Odoxil 125mg Tablet DT can lead to bacterial resistance.
