CEFAR – 500


Cefuroxime Axetil (500 mg)

Cefuroxime is also known as Ceftin or cephalosporin antibiotic. It is available as a generic drug and used to treat only bacterial infections such as skin, middle ear infections, tonsillitis, throat infections, laryngitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, urinary tract infections, and gonorrhea. It will not work for viral infection.

Mechanism of Action

To reduce the growth of CEFAR-500 drug-resistant bacteria and to maintain the effectiveness of CEFAR-500 and other antibacterial drugs. After oral administration Cefuroxime extracts are absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and safely hydrolyzed by non-specific astrogases in the intestinal mucosa and transported to a safe place in the blood. Cefuroxime is subsequently distributed via extracellular fluids. Acetyl mutations are metabolized to acetaldehyde and acetic acid.

Pharmacokinetic Properties:

About 50% of serum cefuroxime protein is bound to the serum. Pharmacokinetic parameters of dose cefuroxime axetil –CEFAR-500mg – peak plasma concentration – 7, peak plasma concentration-time – 3 (hr), mean half-life (hr) – 1.2 and AUC-27 mcg-hr. me. CEFAR-500 is unchanged in the urine in adults. About 50% of the administered dose is urine recovered within 12 hours.

Drug-Drug interactions:

Antacids -containing aluminum or magnesium, histamine2-receptor antagonists: increased cefuroxime absorption. Concomitant administration of probenecid with CEFAR-500 tablets increases the area under the serum versus the time curve by 50%. Peak serum cefuroxime concentrations after 1.5 g single dose are higher when taken with 1 gram probenecid (mean = 14.8 mcg / ml) compared to probenecid (mean = 14.2 mcg / ml).

CNS headache, hyperactivity, hypertonia, seizures.

GI nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, dyspepsia, pseudomembranulitis

Any medication taken in excess can have serious consequences. An overdose with cephalosporin antibiotics can cause brain irritation, which can cause convulsions. If you suspect an overdose, seek medical attention immediately.
