Cefablan review

Penicillin is one of the most important discoveries in medicine. Since its discovery, variations of the medication have been developed retaining only its antibiotic properties but of different components. Cefablan is one of the derivatives of Penicillin, a member of the cephalosporin group of antibiotics and is used to treat mild bacterial infections that occur in the ear, skin, throat, lung, and the urinary tract.

Cefablan is a low dose medicine that is often used as a follow-up for a stronger dosage of cephalosporin. It is also used on its own to treat mild versions of respiratory tract and skin infections. Cefablan may be inconvenient to take because it acts on a short-term basis and regular dosages are scheduled more frequently than other stronger cephalosporin antibiotics. However, Cefablan can be used for an extended period of time. The side effects of this medication are milder compared to other antibiotics.

Talk to your physician about the conditions that you need treated. Your physician should know, in detail, your medical history. They will want to know whether you are allergic to a cephalosporin type of antibiotic or not. It is also important for them to know if you have an existing or history of liver disease, kidney ailment, stomach disorders, or diabetes. Undernourished and pregnant patients need to be watched closely. Occurrence of any of these conditions makes you a possible candidate for an adjusted dosage or a different medication altogether. Patients with delicate conditions are carefully monitored during treatment. Certain medications may react differently when taken with Cefablan. If you have been using warfarin, meftormin, or probenecid prior to Cefablan, tell your physician about it.

Cefablan is taken as prescribed and usually in tablet, capsule, or liquid form. You are required to take a specific amount for a specific period of time. Do not stop using it before the determined period is over just because your symptoms are no longer there. Often, symptoms disappear even before the bacteria are killed. Additionally, you cannot use Cefablan for longer than required. If you feel that you still have a need for the medication, go back to your physician. Note that Cefablan is not designed to tackle viral infections like the common cold or flu. Other medications are used for that.

Some side effects include diarrhea, convulsions, fever, headache, sore throat, weakness, and urinating less than usual. These are common reactions towards the medication. However, if you experience vomiting, extreme stomach pains, and urinating with blood, call your physician immediately. These are alarming signs that tell you the medication is not working properly.
