    Cefixime for Bronchitis (acute)

    Take Cefixin for 2 days, have since then terrible muscle aches that hardly let me sleep. It pulls especially on the hip and in the legs, especially in peace. I think that it is a side effect of the drug and not the disease itself, since I had the bronchitis for 4 days without muscle pain. The muscle aches came a short time after I took the first pill. When almost 24 hours had passed, the muscle pain disappeared again, probably the effect of the tablet diminished, but already about 1-2 hours after taking the second tablet, the pain began again. Otherwise, I tolerate the drug well, no abdominal pain, no diarrhea, etc., and I think it helps. My bronchitis is better, but not gone yet. After 2 days you can not say that much yet. I will continue to take the medication and hope that I can sustain despite the muscle pain.

    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 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.
