CEFTIN ORAL SUSPENSION (CEFUROXIME)

Ceftin Oral Suspension Description

Ceftin Oral Suspension is a cephalosporin antibiotic your doctor can prescribe to treat infections of your skin, throat, middle ear, urinary tract, and to treat gonorrhea that is caused by susceptible bacteria. If you are waiting for test results to confirm whether your infection is bacterial, viral, or fungal, your doctor may start you on Ceftin Oral Suspension until the source is confirmed. If the infection is viral or fungal, you will be instructed to stop taking antibiotics and the symptoms will be treated with other medications. Otherwise, you should continue taking Ceftin Oral Suspension for the full time period recommended by your doctor.

How Does Ceftin Oral Suspension Kill Bacteria?

The active ingredient in Ceftin Oral Suspension is Cefuroxime. When taken as directed, Ceftin Oral Suspension works by binding to and blocking the action of the enzymes that make the key component of most bacterial cell walls, called peptidoglycan. Without the protection of the mesh-like layer that peptidoglycan forms on the plasma membrane, the cell wall is weak and has no osmotic protection and will burst from the pressure that builds up inside the cell and the bacteria are killed.

Most Common Conditions Treated by Ceftin Oral Suspension

Ceftin Oral Suspension is preferred by those that have a difficult time swallowing pills and for younger children to treat the many childhood illnesses that seem to occur. This includes impetigo, a highly contagious skin infection usually caused by the Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. Skin areas most affected by impetigo are the face, arms, and legs.

Middle ear infections are also well known by parents of toddlers. Children under 5 years old are at a higher risk for this infection, known as otitis media, due to the shorter eustachian tubes. When your little one has a cold, the bacteria have a shorter distance to go from the back of their throat to the middle ear. Your child may also have a slight fever and will be cranky and rub or pull at their ear.

Before You Start Ceftin Oral Suspension

Inform your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding so you are aware of any risks of taking Ceftin Oral Suspension during this time. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC and Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal and vitamin supplements, so your doctor can determine if Ceftin Oral Suspension is right for your situation.
