Cefadroxil

Uses

Cefadroxil is used in the treatment of bacterial infections such as such as urinary tract infections, skin infections, and chest or throat infections.

How it Works

Cefadroxil is known as a broad-spectrum antibiotic. Cefadroxil is in a group of drugs called cephalosporin antibiotics. Cefadroxil kills the bacterial infection by attacking the bacteria cell wall. Cefadroxil prevents the synthesis of a substance in the bacterial cell wall called peptidoglycan, which provides the cell wall with the strength required for survival of bacteria in human body.

Common Side effects

Some of the potential side effects of Cefadroxil can include the symptoms below;

Nausea,
Diarrhoea,
Allergic reaction,
Black, tarry stools,
Bleeding gums,
Difficulty with moving,
Feeling of discomfort,
Blistering, peeling, or loosening of the skin,
Blood in the urine or stools,
Chills,
Clay-colored stools,
Cough or hoarseness,
Dark-colored urine,
Fever

Introduction

Cefadroxil is an antibiotic often used for treating infections caused by certain bacteria. The mechanism of action is that it interferes with the formation of the bacterial cell wall. This weakens the cell and leads to cell lysis, leading to controlled growth. This medicine is not effective for viral infections like the common cold and flu.

Use

Cefadroxil is a first-generation cephalosporin antibacterial drug that is indicated in the treatment of infections caused by susceptible bacteria, such as the bacterium streptococcus pyogenes that causes the disease called streptococcal pharyngitis or tonsillitis. It is also used in the treatment of urinary tract infections, reproductive tract infections, and skin infections. This drug may also be used before dental procedures in patients with artificial heart valves to prevent the occurrence of bacterial endocarditis.

Dosage and administration

This medicine is available as tablets of 125 mg, 250 mg, and 500 mg concentrations. The route of administration is oral and it should be taken with a glass of water. The medicine is to be taken with or without food as directed by your doctor, however, taking it with food prevents occurrence of gastric problems. It is advised that the medicine is to be taken at the same time of the day, at evenly spaced intervals. For urinary tract infections, the usual recommended dose is 1 to 2 gm/day in single or divided doses for 7 to 10 days. For pharyngitis, tonsillitis, and skin infections, the usual dose is 1 gm/day in single or divided doses for 7 to 10 days. It is important that you do not stop taking the medicine before the prescribed full course, even after the symptoms subside since there is a chance that the infection may return once you stop taking the medicine. If you miss a normal dose of the drug, then do not take two doses at once to compensate the forgotten dose. Just continue with the usual drug regime.

Warning

  • Before you start taking the drug, tell your doctor about all the allergies you have to any drug (especially Cephalosporins) or any food item. Also inform your doctor about all the prescribed and non-prescribed drugs you are taking.
  • Tell your doctor if you have any history of kidney disorder or intestinal disease.
  • Weeks or months after the treatment, this medicine may cause a severe intestinal condition called clostridium difficile associated diarrhea, with the symptoms of persistent diarrhea, pain in the abdomen, and blood or mucus in the stool. In such a case, consult your doctor immediately.
  • Use of this medicine for prolonged periods may result in oral or vaginal fungal infections thus any white patch in your mouth or a change in the vaginal discharge must be immediately looked at.
