Oroken, an antibiotic classified under third generation cephalosporins, is also widely used all over Canada. Wyeth, a medication manufacturer, marketed Oroken 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.

Oroken, 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, Oroken is not effective against coughs, colds, flu, and other viral infections.

Oroken is administered orally and comes in either tablet or liquid form, administered once or twice a day for five 5 to 14 days. It is important that you follow the Oroken 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 Oroken therapy without the advice of your physician.

Before taking Oroken, you must discuss your complete medical history with your physician. Allergies to medications, foods, and other synthetic substances must be determined to ensure that your Oroken 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 Oroken.

Oroken often causes disturbances in the stomach, which is why it is advisable to take it with food or milk. Do not take Oroken on an empty stomach unless your physician advises you to. Aside from an upset stomach, Oroken may also cause side effects including diarrhea, headache, vomiting, and skin rash. If symptoms persist, worsen, or are accompanied by wheezing, vaginal infection or breathing difficulty, immediately seek medical attention.

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you realize it. If it is too close to your next dose, discard your missed dose. Do not double your dose to make up for the missed one since this can cause an overdose.

Take note of any irregular condition that develops while taking Oroken. This will be reason enough for you to call your physician. Certain tests will be required to monitor your body’s responses to the medicine. If you continue to experience symptoms after your treatment has ended, talk with your physician. Do not use one prescription for another condition or another person’s bout with a bacterial infection. The condition and the patient’s health are important factors that determine how much Oroken will be administered and at what intervals. Factors vary on a case-to-case basis so it is best to talk to your physician. Doing this will ensure that you are using Oroken properly.
