Ceff (Cephalexin Monohydrate)
What is Ceff (Cephalexin Monohydrate) used for?
Ceff (Cephalexin Monohydrate) is an oral antibiotic used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections including those affecting the respiratory tract, middle ear, bones, skin, or urinary tract. It operates by slowing or stopping the reproduction of bacteria cells making it easier for the immune system to control or eliminate the infection. Your doctor may prescribe this medication along with others or for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Ceff (Cephalexin Monohydrate)?
Ceff (Cephalexin Monohydrate) should always be used according to your doctor`s instructions to get the safest and most effective results from treatment. The normal dosage is one tablet taken every six to twelve hours for a cycle of treatment lasting one or two weeks, but your particular instructions will depend on your age, weight, current health, the condition being treated, and the severity of your symptoms. These should be swallowed with a large glass of water and may be taken with or without food, although a snack or meal is recommended prior to use if you experience nausea. Do not stop taking the medication before being told to do so, even if your symptoms seem to have disappeared, as the infection may return stronger and more resistant to treatment. Do not change the form of the tablets by splitting or crushing them as this may destroy or alter the effects of their contents. Ask your pharmacist or doctor any questions you have about the medicine to ensure the correct administration.
