Effect of Cefixime

Cefixime is a new member of the oral cephalosporin group. This makes it one of the beta-lactam antibiotics. The active ingredient kills bacteria (bactericidal effect) by preventing the cell wall structure of the pathogens. The disadvantage is that bacteria that have the protein beta-lactamase can destroy cephalosporins. Thus, they become insensitive (resistant) to the antibiotic. Cefixime, however, is not destroyed by this protein, so it is also effective in such pathogens.

Potential Cefixime side effects may include:

    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.

    On the second day of taking the diarrhea (half-hourly toilet starts) has begun, accompanied by extremely loud Magengrummeln and gastric. Yogurt, bioflorin (to build up the intestinal flora) do not help me; Since I do not want to sit at the toilet all the time and can (go back to work) I take Immodium. Appetite is also rather moderate. I am currently on treatment day 4.
