Gruencef is an antibiotic. Like other antimicrobial drugs, it is used to fight bacterial infections that weaken the body. If used properly, Gruencef is very effective in stopping the cause of a disease before it gets to an alarming level.
Gruencef is a first generation cephalosporin type of antibiotic. First generation cephalosporins are used to treat mild to moderate infections in the urinary tract and respiratory tract among others. Gruencef kills susceptible bacteria and stops them from growing before they even cause fatal effects. It comes in a tablet form that can be taken twice or thrice daily at evenly spaced intervals depending on the patient’s level of affliction.
Gruencef works best when a required amount is maintained on a constant level. That is why it needs to be taken at a given period of time. In most cases, Gruencef may be taken without food. When stomach upset occurs, however, you might need to take it with food. Gruencef should be taken continuously until the required dose is achieved otherwise, a relapse of the bacterial infection may occur. When a patient stops taking Gruencef as soon as the symptoms of infection disappear, he is allowing the remaining bacteria to grow and be active anew. Even when the symptoms are all gone, the bacteria might still be alive so you need to continue the treatment until the prescribed dosage is finished.
Make sure that you are using Gruencef for the appropriate cause. Talk to your doctor regarding the dosage that you need. He will also advise you whether Gruencef is an option in your case or not. If you have medical history of allergies and kidney failures, you may be unfit to use the drug. Pregnant women -- as well as those who have just given birth -- must take cautions in using Gruencef since it may be excreted in their breast milk. Although no harsh effects have been found yet, you must consult your doctor whether it is safe to breastfeed or not before you proceed.
Like other antibiotics, Gruencef comes with it a handful of side effects. Normally, mild conditions of diarrhea, vomiting, stomach ache, and loss of appetite may occur during treatment. If such conditions worsen or came with fever, easy bruising, itching, and breathing difficulty, you must call your doctor immediately. An occurrence of a skin rash and an irregular amount of urine are also possible warning signs.
Drug interactions may also occur at any point of your treatment so you must consult your doctor regarding prescription and nonprescription drugs you cannot use along with Gruencef. In addition, Gruencef may lessen the effectiveness of birth control pills. It is advisable that you resort to an alternative method while using the drug. Gruencef also interferes in the results of sugar level testing in the urine. If you are Diabetic, you must not use Clinitest tablets to measure your sugar. Use Clinistix instead.
To be safe with Gruencef, make sure that you are professionally guided during treatment. Never use a previous prescription for a current condition or suggest it to someone else. The prescription is always good for your own current condition only.
