Serozil review

Serozil is a medication used in treating ear infections, nose infection, skin infections, bronchitis and many other bacterial infections. This medication is not for the treatment of viral infections, colds or the flu.

Serozil is for patients with bacterial infections and is classified as a cephalosporin antibiotic.

The dosage depends on the prescription and is based on the level of infection and how the patient reacts to the treatment. Serozil is taken orally after a meal to avoid an upset stomach. Continue taking the medication until the prescription is finished or as advised by your physician. Do not stop the medicine earlier than prescribed even if there are no more symptoms because there is still a possibility that the bacteria will comeback. Follow your physician's prescription to ensure that the infection is eliminated.

For a missed dose, take it as soon as remembered. However, if it is too near the time for the next dose, skip the missed dose. Do not take two doses close together.

Some known side effects include diarrhoea, nausea, upset stomach and loss of appetite. These side effects can usually be minimized by drinking milk or eating food when taking the medication.

Less common side effects include dizziness, cephalalgia, fever, muscle pain, languor, unusual taste in the mouth and even seizures. If any of these occur, immediately seek medical attention.

Patients experiencing an overdose must be taken to a physician or poison control facility immediately.

Before taking this medication, let your physician know if you are suffering from any medical disorder, including kidney problems and stomach disorders. Inform your physician of any allergies to antibiotics or other similar medicines. Talk with your physician about other medicines you are taking, including blood thinners and antibiotics.

Women using hormone-based birth control pills should discuss with their physician other methods of birth control. Serozil interferes with the effectiveness of these birth control pills.

Diabetic patients should inform their physician of their condition prior to taking this medication because Serozil can affect the results of a glucose test. Your physician may offer another method to monitor your glucose level.

Serozil is a prescription medication and is not to be shared with others even if they have similar conditions. It should not be used at a later date even if the same symptoms occur.

Pregnant women should discuss with their physician any risks involved with taking this medication. Patients that are breastfeeding an infant should also consult their physician before taking this medication.

To supplement the effectiveness of the medication and avoid other infections, patients need to maintain proper hygiene. Wash your hands thoroughly before touching any infected areas of the body.

Serozil should be stored in a safe place and out of the children's reach.
