What is Milixim (Cefixime) used for?
Milixim (Cefixime) is an oral cephalosporin antibiotic prescribed to treat patients suffering from a wide variety of bacterial infections. It operates by slowing or stopping the reproduction of bacteria cells making it easier for the immune system to control or destroy the infection. This makes it useful for treating bacterial infections of the middle ear, urinary tract, respiratory tract, lungs, kidneys, or gonorrhoea. Your doctor may prescribe this medication to be used along with others or for the treatment of other unlisted conditions, as well.
How should I use Milixim (Cefixime)?
Milixim (Cefixime) should be used according to your doctor`s instructions while using this medication to ensure the safest and most effective results from treatment. The typical dosage is one tablet administered once or twice daily at a dosage of one tablet in a treatment cycle lasting one or two weeks. Your particular directions will depend on your age, weight, current health, the condition being treated, and the severity of your symptoms. These should be swallowed along with a large glass of water and may be taken on an empty stomach, although a meal is recommended before use if you experience nausea. Never split or chew the tablets as this may destroy or change the effects of their contents. Do not stop taking the medicine before being instructed to do so as the infection may not be destroyed and can return stronger or more resistant to treatment.
What are the side effects of Milixim (Cefixime)?
Milimix (Cefixime) may cause side effects during treatment including:
Serious side effects that may require medical attention are fever, flu symptoms, severe diarrhoea that is bloody or watery, swollen gums, unusual swelling, darkened urine, discoloured stools, jaundice, or severe skin reactions.

Milimix (Cefixime) should not be administered to patients who are children under the age of six, allergic to cephalosporin antibiotics, or who have had a bad reaction to similar treatments in the past.
