Dixim-O Tablets with Cefixime & Ofloxacin for bacterial infections
Cefixime – Cefixime, an antibiotic, is a third-generation cephalosporin like ceftriaxone and cefotaxime. Cefixime is highly stable in the presence of beta-lactamase enzymes. As a result, many organisms resistant to penicillins and some cephalosporins due to the presence of beta-lactamases, may be susceptible to cefixime. The beta-lactam antibiotic cefixime inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis by disrupting peptidoglycan synthesis, resulting in a reduction in bacterial cell wall stability and bacterial cell lysis. Cefixime is used to treat a number of bacterial infections. This includes otitis media, strep throat, pneumonia, urinary tract infections, gonorrhea, and Lyme disease.
It is not recommended in people with a history of a severe penicillin allergy. It appears to be relatively safe during pregnancy and has the advantage of once-daily dosing.
Ofloxacin – Ofloxacin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic used to treat a variety of bacterial infections such as bronchitis, pneumonia, gonococcal infection, and certain types of infectious diarrhea. It is a synthetic fluoroquinolone (fluoroquinolones) antibacterial agent that inhibits the supercoiling activity of bacterial DNA gyrase, halting DNA replication. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. Caution is advised while using this medicine in the elderly population since it increases the risk of tendinitis and tendon rupture. Unnecessary use or misuse of any antibiotic can lead to its decreased effectiveness.
