Ear infections, upper respiratory infections, urinary tract infections, skin and other infections caused by bacteria are easily treated with Phexin. Also known as Cephalexin, the medication serves a potent antibiotic that fights numerous bacteria. In this respect, the treatment course eliminates the development and spread of the bacteria within the organism, thus, improves the symptoms. Additionally, the remedy can be used with other conditions not mentioned in the safety leaflet.
The essential part of successful infection treatment is a properly chosen Phexin dose and suitable duration of the course. Thus, to fulfill these two vital points, it is necessary to meet a healthcare provider before the first medication intake. Afterwards, just follow his/her recommendations without any changes, and you are sure to experience positive changes within a couple of days.
Take Cephalexin in the exact dose that suits the severity of your condition and is prescribed according to your general health state. Never increase or decrease the medicine strength to avoid possible related side effects. Do not administer Phexin to improve other conditions that have not been approved and checked by your physician.
Since the treatment is available in the form of oral suspension, it should be dissolved in water, stirred and taken. Use the drug for as long as it is needed, even if your symptoms disappear and you feel the improvement of your condition. There is a risk of infection reappearance in case of an abrupt end of the drug intake. Besides, try not to miss doses, as it also advances the danger of further infection. Keep in mind that Cephalexin is not effective for cold and flu. Never double the dose, even if you have missed one. Skip it if the next scheduled one should be taken soon.
Precautions and Contraindications
Consult your healthcare provider to make sure Phexin will not cause any side effects, though will be an effective solution for your infection treatment. Provide your doctor with information about all the health problems you have, including heart or kidney diseases, diabetes, intestinal disorders and other conditions. Do not administer the drug if you are allergic to Cephalexin, other components of the pharmaceutical or similar medications. Besides, the drug is not likely to harm unborn or nursing children, though pregnant and breastfeeding women are not commonly recommended to administer Phexin treatment.
Do not forget to inform your doctor about medications you are taking to avoid possible devastating interactions. Do not start the treatment course if you are allergic to Cephalexin or other cephalosporin antibiotics, including cefazolin, cefpodoxime, cefaclor, cefdinir, cefadroxil, cefditoren, etc. Besides, Phexin may interact with a great number of other prescription and OTC medicines, herbal treatments, vitamins and supplements. Ask your doctor for more details and safety instructions.
Call your doctor immediately if you have noticed any reactions that do not disappear after a few Phexin intakes. Diarrhea, headaches, vomiting, dizziness, vaginal discharge and itching are among such symptoms. However, seek emergency medical help in case more severe complications have appeared, such as allergic reactions, bloody diarrhea, jaundice, convulsions, confusion, agitation, hallucinations, problems urinating, fever, vision changes, rashes, easy bruising and others.
