Baxan review

Baxan is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that acts against an extensive variety of bacteria, including Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. It belongs to a group of medications called cephalosporin antibiotics, which are used to treat many different types of bacterial infections.

Distributed under the brand name, Duricef, Baxan is normally prescribed for the treatment of mild to moderate infections. However, it is not effective against viral infections like colds or the flu. Baxan is also used as an antibiotic prophylaxis during dental procedures.

Baxan acts through fast absorption in the gastrointestinal tract, even when taken with food. It travels throughout the body's tissues and fluids to seek out traces of bacterial infection.

Before taking this medication, patients should inform their doctor whether they are allergic to penicillin or other types of antibiotics. If patients have a history of kidney disease, or any stomach or gastrointestinal tract disorder like colitis, they are advised to tell their doctor, as well. These conditions preclude the use of Baxan or require a different dosage and frequent monitoring while taking the medication.

It is also important for patients to inform their doctor if they have diabetes. Baxan in liquid form (suspension) contains sucrose, which may aggravate symptoms of diabetes. Although this medication is not considered harmful to unborn babies, it is still important to let the doctor know if the patient is pregnant or has plans to become pregnant during the course of treatment.

Patients should also inform their doctor of any other prescription or over-the-counter medications, including vitamin and herbal products, as these may have adverse results when taken with Baxan. It may even lessen the medication's healing effect.

Baxan is characterized by its fast absorbing action and may indirectly affect breastmilk, causing harm to nursing infants. Female patients should tell their doctor if they are breastfeeding before starting Baxan use.

As symptoms of an infection usually clear before the bacteria is completely eradicated, Baxan should be taken according to the prescribed length of time ordered by the doctor. This is to prevent a recurrence of the same infection in the future.

Antibiotics can cause diarrhoea, which is usually a sign of a new infection. However, if the diarrhoea is exceptionally watery or contains blood in it, patients should call their doctor and refrain from taking any medication for the diarrhoea unless told by a doctor to do so.

Other side effects of Baxan include an upset stomach, mild wamble, joint pain, and vaginal itching or discharge. However, if the medication causes the patient to break out in hives, have breathing difficulties or result in a skin edema of the face and mouth area, emergency medical attention should be sought immediately.

In some cases, Baxan can also cause extreme blistering and peeling, a red skin rash, fever and chills, throat soreness and flu symptoms, unexplained bleeding or bruising, wamble and loss of appetite, jaundice, dark urine and grey-colored stools, and even seizures. These side effects are serious in nature and should be reported to the doctor as soon as possible.

Baxan is taken as prescribed, usually with a full glass of water or milk. The liquid form of the medication should be measured with a measuring spoon or cup to obtain the correct dose. Baxan should be taken at regular intervals during the prescribed period of time for the best treatment results.
