Effect of Cefaclor

Cefaclor belongs to the group of oral cephalosporins. This makes it a representative of beta-lactam antibiotics. Cefaclor kills bacteria (bactericidal action) by preventing their cell wall buildup.

The disadvantage is that bacteria that have the protein beta-lactamase can destroy cefaclor. Thus, they become insensitive (resistant) to the antibiotic. Cefaclor is ineffective in these pathogens.

Potential Cefaclor side effects may include:

    Cefaclor for Sinusitis

    My daughter (13) was prescribed Cefaclor for acute sinusitis. She took the drug for the second time, the last time because of sinusitis about 1/2 year ago. It has not struck quickly. 2 days after taking the last tablet she got massive Juckreis with white wheals in the evening. The dermatologist tapped an allerg. Reaction and prescribed ceterizine. It has massive joint pain, swollen joints and swelling in the face, difficulty swallowing and is extremely flabby. She was dizzy, I was terrified when she fainted in my presence for about 1 minute. These side effects are described as common, I find that very questionable ….

    Cefaclor for Flu

    I got Cefaclor 500 prescribed for flu. It did not bother me at all, even after the 6 1/2 days that I had to take it I was not really better. But you say so beautiful-with a doctor 7 days, without a week … In this case, very true. I still had a high fever and head / body aches. Two days after I stopped taking them, I got a severe rash on my arms and stomach and it got so bad that I had to go back to the doctor who only prescribed other pills to help with the rash should.

    My experience with Epiduo: I have been using it since less than a week and so far I have had no side effect but it has not really helped. My skin: I have naturally slightly oily skin, but my cheeks have become very sensitive due to the over-care I think about 2 months ago but I stopped to over-care ^ ^ and the skin peels off like sometimes but I like to take in Buy, if only I could produce a result. My story so short it works: with me that was so that I had only occasionally to fight with acne until December 2011 that was then for me as a New Year’s gift that has spread extremely on my cheeks is still supi -.- ‘ , In any case, I have since used 2 antibiotics I’ve already forgotten a name. He was null and worth nothing, after all I only thought about my poor organs afterwards. Use antibiotics and without effect !! Then a month ago, my dermatologist first came to my mind to examine my skin with smear and then a bacterial infection was detected and I got Cafeclor and during the 7-day intake it got worse, in the end my skin was maybe really better for 4 days and then it was bad again. I also use Eucerin as a wash gel that is quite good so the skin does not dry out but is already minimal, but at least a little helpful. In addition, I get a Clorhaltige tincture (?) Prescribed every time wenns used up. This is to dry out the pimples and well it is helpful but not very good. I do not dare to make a make-up anymore and at home my hair is too closed, but not there my hair has a curtain function. I do not use moisturizer any more because the previous recommended ones were not good. I will now change my dermatologist and I was recommended a different brand by a friend for the facial cleansing and also the moisturizer. She also recommended the dermatologist to me and she is said to have had just as bad skin as me and right now her skin is really without joke MARKELLOS. I hope I will have the same result in the end: D The side effects were only with Cefaclor!

    Cefaclor for Pharyngitis

    I was diagnosed with acute pharyngitis and prescribed Cefaclor 500 tablets 3 times a day. On the second day of intake, my symptoms of inflammation did not improve or got worse. I then endured it for another 2 days and there was no noticeable improvement after that. The pharyngitis was not controlled. Cefaclor was completely ineffective for me. Have read on the Internet that Cefaclor in the past has been prescribed very often and have formed resistance!

    Side effects: Ineffectiveness

    Cefaclor for Bacterial infection

    Hello, my almost three-year-old daughter has been prescribed by pediatrician CEC Saft, due to a feverish bronchial inflammation. During the intake there were no objective complaints. She has tolerated it well in my opinion and the juice has also relatively quickly brought at least the fever under control. Her barking, poorly dissolving, croup-like cough was well under control after a week’s use. The intake was set to 8 days and with the dry juice we got exactly (Thursday-Thursday). On Saturday night, three days after weaning, my little one got an itchy rash in some parts of her body (inguinal region, underarms, hairline / neck, hollows of the knees, and part of abdomen, back, and thighs) (similar to nettle stings). Since the next morning (Sunday, 4 days after) no improvement was in sight, I visited the pediatric emergency service, which prescribed her Fenestiltropfen. The diagnosis of the doctor: SIDE EFFECTS OF ANTIBIOTICS! On the same day in the evening, my daughter suddenly could no longer walk and complained crying about pain in both knees. In the investigation on my part, I found that both knees slightly swollen and unlike upper and lower legs were also extremely hot. In addition, she had now again 38.5 ° C Temp! I gave her ibuprofen juice and put her to sleep. Since I could not explain the increased temp, the pain and also the swelling, I contacted a pediatrician in the nearby hospital for advice. When she described the history and current symptoms and the drug Cefaclor came into conversation, she told me that also JOINT PAIN is a subsequent side effects of the drug. I should now wait and tomorrow, if no improvement is in sight, visit a doctor again. In addition, I was told by her that it is very common to such symptoms and now paediatricians is advised to stop giving antibiotics with active ingredient Cefaclor children !!! I now hope the best for my little girl and advise parents urgently from this drug!

    Cefaclor for Tonsillitis

    I have tonsillitis several times a year. The effectiveness is really high but always have side effects. Diarrhea is always one of them, including stomach ache, nausea, vomiting and, in rare cases, premature menstruation. Now and then also pain in the genital area. Still, it’s the best drug I’ve ever received. It does indeed drive the devil with the Belzebub but this is short-lived. The price convinces me because I have to pay for this drug nothing. It is taken over completely by my health insurance of the AOK and I am not exempt from additional payments.

    Side effects: Vomit; Nausea; Diarrhea
