Mahacef 200 mg against Monocef 200 mg

doctor has prescribe monocef 200 mg for fever but the medical shop gave me mahacef 200 mg and says that both are same. Can I take this ## Mahacef is listed as containing the active ingredient Cefixime, and Monocef is listed as containing Ceftriaxone, so while they are not exactly the same, they are both antibiotics that are used to treat bacterial infections. The FDA lists antibiotic side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. Ref: Antibiotic Information Your pharmacist may not have had the other one available, so they provided you with this alternative, but you should check with your doctor to be sure. Are you on any other medications?

Taxim O Cefixime Oral Suspension Use

My kid is 3 & 1/2 yrs old. He has blocked nostrils and a cough. How should we use this dose for him? ## Well a suspension is meant to be swallowed orally. However, Cefixime is an antibiotic and if he just has nasal congestion and a cough due to a cold, this won't help, because a cold is caused by a virus, not a bacterial infection.

cefixime dose given early to 3 month old baby

My 3 minth ild baby girl got urine infectiin and doctor advised to give cefixime 2.5ml, 2 times a day for 7 days. By mistake i have given one dose in morning and one dose in afternoon. Instead of giving doses in morning and night. Is there anything to worry. Please help. ## Hello, Yas! How is your daughter doing? Has there been any change? Giving them too close together generally won't cause dangerous harm, but if consistent levels aren't maintained in her body for the proper amount of time, it may not eradicate the bacteria and could cause it to develop antibiotic resistance. Thus, it would be best to inform her doctor, so they can check, just in case.

Second round of antibiotics within a month
