    Hello, I take the 3rd days now Cefixim 400 and personally can only advise against. Have to say that I am an asthmatic udn allergies. I went to the doctor 2 days ago because of ear pain and was told that a cold on the ears. On the other hand, I got cefixime. I rested for 2 days at home (I’m a student) and had hardly any problems .. but also put me after taking always the same. Anyway, I went back today and took the tablet in the morning. I went after about 1h always worse: trembling, weakness, no concentration and no appetite. I tormented myself but 6h to the end of the school. At home I went even worse: tachycardia, shortness of breath, heartache and severe headache. I read through the leaflet again and read that the drug is not suitable for asthmatics. Since the doctor knew that, I do not understand why it was prescribed to me. But despite all, the side effects have it all.

    Side effects: Palpitations; Headache

    Cefixime for Bacterial infection

    I have been prescribed antibiotics because of a bacterial infection. (the first antibiotic was for 3 days, but has shown no effect, AZI-TEVA). Then I had to try my luck with Cefixim, that I should take for another seven days. Since the side effects have paralyzed me so much, I veinbart with my doctor, the drug only 5 days to take. I had severe diarrhea, nausea, headache, muscle and joint pain, tiredness. Have had to take several medications for the side effects, otherwise I would not have endured. Fortunately, after I stopped cefixime, the infection was gone, but I still had a week to go with the remaining side effects.

    Cefixime for Bacterial infection

    I took both medicines combined. Tetracycline Wolff twice 500 mg, cefixime once 400 mg daily. After two weeks, I felt sick and dizzy. This then increased quickly and on the 16th day I had to discontinue the medication after consultation with the doctor. I felt very bad. In addition, severe head, limb, back and Gebissschmerzen added, in addition complete weakness and sleep disturbances. The complaints have subsided but are still available. I am already three weeks AU and do not know when I am fit again. Three out of four germs have disappeared, the last one has at least decreased in number.

    Cefixime for Tonsillitis

    Astonishingly, during the ingestion I hardly had any gastrointestinal complaints. The chair was a bit ‘sticky but did not cause diarrhea. However, what really went down to the substance are headaches accompanied by muscle aches. Now after about 2 days after stopping the intake I have abdominal pain in the lower abdomen and severe itching, which I actually did not have while taking it. Have small skin pustules on the inside of the forearms and on the lower leg.
