Cefpodoxime proxetil tablets are a type of antibiotic medication used to treat bacterial infections in various parts of the body. The drug belongs to the cephalosporin class of antibiotics and works by stopping bacterial growth or killing bacteria altogether. The medication comes in tablet and suspension forms, and the dosage and duration of treatment depend on the condition being treated. Patients are advised to take cefpodoxime as directed by their healthcare provider, even if they start feeling better. Skipping doses or stopping the medication too soon can lead to antibiotic resistance and a return of the infection symptoms. Patients with colitis, diarrhea, kidney disease, and infants younger than two months old should use cefpodoxime with caution. Side effects may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and head pains, while serious side effects may include fever, difficulty breathing or swallowing, and a return of the infection symptoms.
