Your Child’s Medicine At a Glance

Cefolac DT 50 Tablet is an antibiotic medicine. It is commonly given to children to treat a wide range of bacterial infections targeting the ear, eyes, nose, throat, lungs, skin, gastrointestinal tract, and urinary tract. It can also be used in treating uncomplicated typhoid fever in children and adolescents.

Cefolac DT 50 Tablet is best given an hour before or two hours after meals as that ensures better absorption. In case your child develops a stomach upset, prefer giving it with meals. 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's the time for the next dose.

Do not give this medicine to your child in case of cold and flu symptoms as they are usually caused by viruses, and antibiotics don’t treat viral infections. Doctors prescribe this medicine for cough and cold only when they detect any underlying secondary bacterial infection.

This medicine may have some minor and temporary side effects such as 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.

Q. The mucus coming out of my child’s nose is yellow-green. Is it a sign of a bacterial infection?

Q. My child is having a sore throat and ear infection. Can I give antibiotics?

No. More than 80% of sore throats and ear infections are caused by a virus and antibiotics are not given for viral infections. If your child has a sore throat, runny nose, a barky cough, pain,, and discharge from the ear, it is most likely because of a virus. Consult your child’s doctor to seek guidance.

Q. Does a common cold caused by viruses always result in a secondary bacterial infection? When to start an antibiotic to prevent infection?

In most cases, bacterial infections do not follow viral infections. Using antibiotics to treat viral infections may instead lead to side effects without benefiting your child's health. Use antibiotics only after consulting with your child’s doctor.

Q. Can Cefolac DT 50 Tablet impact my child’s digestive system?

Children often have a sensitive stomach and develop a stomach upset while taking antibiotics. When antibiotics are given, the good bacteria in their gastrointestinal tract may take a hit too.

In case your child is having diarrhea while on Cefolac DT 50 Tablet, do not stop the medicine course. Instead, call your child’s doctor to ask about the next steps. In some cases, the doctor may alter the dose.

Q. Can Cefolac DT 50 Tablet lead to bacterial resistance in my child?

Yes, irregular treatment, repeated use,, and misuse of Cefolac DT 50 Tablet can lead to resistance. Resistant bacteria are no longer killed by the antibiotics and may lead to reinfection.
