Your Child’s Medicine At a Glance

Rexcim 50 Dry Syrup contains two ingredients, one antibiotic and one probiotic. While the antibiotic helps kill a wide range of bacterial infections, the probiotic prevents the antibiotic from causing digestive problems as a side effect. It does so by restoring the balance of good bacteria in the intestine.

Give Rexcim 50 Dry Syrup to your child with or without meals with a full glass of water. Though the risk of developing a stomach upset is less with this medicine, giving it with meals will further reduce the risk. The dose and duration depend upon the type and severity of the infection, so stick to the dose, time, and way prescribed by the doctor. If 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.

Rexcim 50 Dry Syrup may cause some minor and temporary side effects in your child. These may include vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, abdominal pain, and allergy. Usually, these episodes 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 without any delay. 

Narrate your child’s complete medical history to your child’s doctor, including any previous episode of allergy, heart problem, blood disorder, birth defects, airway obstruction, lung anomaly, gastrointestinal problem, skin disorder, liver impairment, and kidney malfunction. This information is critical for dose alterations and for planning your child’s overall treatment.

Uses of Rexcim 50 Dry Syrup in Children

Benefits of Rexcim 50 Dry Syrup for your child

In Treatment of Bacterial infections

Rexcim 50 Dry Syrup is an antibiotic medicine. It is commonly given to children to treat a wide range of bacterial infections, including infections of the eyes, middle ear, nose, throat, lungs, skin, bone and joints, gastrointestinal tract, and urinary tract. This medicine inhibits the growth of infection-causing bacteria by stopping it from multiplying.

Children usually start showing improvement within 3 to 5 days of the regular dosing. You must continue giving the medicine even after seeing this improvement because stopping the medicine abruptly may worsen your child’s condition or cause infection recurrence.

Side effects of Rexcim 50 Dry Syrup in Children

Rexcim 50 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 Rexcim 50 Dry Syrup to my child?

How Rexcim Oral Suspension works

Lactobacillus is a live micro-organism that restores the balance of good bacteria in the intestine that may get upset with antibiotic use or due to intestinal infections.

Avoid giving more than the recommended dose because overdose may cause unwanted side effects and may even worsen your child’s condition.
