What is Farobact (Faropenem) used for?
Farobact (Faropenem) is an oral antibiotic used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. The medication destroys or prevents the reproduction of bacteria cells making it easier for the immune system to control or destroy the infection. It is commonly used to treat infections affecting the lungs, sinuses, respiratory tract, or urinary tract. Your doctor may prescribe this medication along with others or for the treatment of other unlisted conditions, as well.
How should I use Farobact (Faropenem)?
Farobact (Faropenem) should be used strictly according to your doctor`s directions to get the safest and most effective results from treatment. The normal dosage is one tablet administered once or twice each day for a cycle of medication lasting one or two weeks. Your particular instructions will be based on your age, weight, current health, the condition being treated, and the severity of your symptoms. These doses should be swallowed with a full cup of water and may be taken on an empty stomach, although a meal or snack is suggested before use if you get an upset stomach. Do not change the form of the tablets prior to use by splitting or crushing them as this may destroy or alter the effects of their contents.
