Cephoral, an antibiotic classified under third generation cephalosporins, is also widely used all over Canada. Wyeth, a medicament manufacturer, marketed Cephoral by its brand name Suprax. In 2003, Suprax was taken off the United States market due to the death of its patients. It has since been re-launched by Lupin.
Cephoral, an effective treatment to stop the spread of several bacterial infections, is often used as a treatment for gonorrhea, pharyngitis, and tonsilitis. As with other antibiotics, Cephoral is not effective against coughs, colds, flu, and other viral infections.
Cephoral is administered orally and comes in either pill or liquid form, administered once or twice a day for five 5 to 14 days. It is important that you follow the Cephoral prescription and are supervised by a physician. The physician will know the appropriate amount and period of treatment for your case after administering a series of tests. Do not alter your Cephoral therapy without the advice of your physician.
Before taking Cephoral, you must discuss your complete medical history with your physician. Allergies to medicaments, foods, and other synthetic substances must be determined to ensure that your Cephoral intake will not encourage reactions. Your physician also needs to know all prescription and non-prescription medicines that you are currently using as well as your overall health. This is to avoid any complications during your treatment with Cephoral.
Cephoral often causes disturbances in the stomach, which is why it is advisable that you take it with food or milk. Do not take Cephoral on an empty stomach unless your physician advises you to. Aside from an upset stomach, Cephoral may also cause diarrhea, headache, vomiting, and skin rash as side effects. If symptoms persist, worsen, or are accompanied by wheezing, vaginal infection or breathing difficulty, immediately seek medical attention.
If you miss a dosage, take it as soon as you realize it. If it is too close to your next dosage, discard your missed dosage. Do not double your dosage to make up for the missed one since this can cause an overdosage.
Take note of any irregular condition that develops while under Cephoral treatment because that is reason enough for you to call a physician. Your physician will require certain tests to monitor your body's responses to the medicine. If you continue to experience the symptoms after your treatment is through, go back to your physician and discuss it with them. Do not use your own prescription for another condition or another person's bout with bacterial infection. The level of affliction and the patient's health are important factors that determine how much Cephoral will be administered and at what intervals. Factors vary on a case-to-case basis so it is better to talk straight to your physician. Doing so will ensure that you are using Cephoral properly.
