CEFIGET 100MG/5ML SUSPENSION (60ML)

 

Cefiget 100mg/5ml is a third generation cephalosporin, cefixime. Cefiget 100mg/5ml is active against both gram negative and gram positive micro-organisms. Cefiget 100mg/5ml tablet works as an anti-bacterial agent by binding to a specific protein called as penicillin binding protein (PBPs) causing the lysis of bacterial cell-wall.

USES:

Cefiget 100mg/5ml is indicated for the treatment of following types of anti-bacterial infections:

  • Uncomplicated urinary tract infections
  • Otitis media.
  • Uncomplicated gonorrhea
  • Acute bronchitis.
  • Pharyngitis and tonsillitis.

SIDE EFFECTS:

Cefiget 100mg/5ml may causes:

  • Gastrointestinal disturbance: Diarrhea (if severe diarrhea occurs, cefixime should be discontinued), changes in the color of stool, nausea, abdominal pain, dyspepsia, vomiting, flatulence have been reported. Pseudomembranous colitis has also been reported.
  • Central nervous system disturbance: Headache, dizziness, seizures. Hepatic Disorders: Transient rises in liver transaminases, alkaline phosphatase and jaundice can also occur.
  • Others: Hypersensitivity reactions which usually subside upon discontinuation of therapy; infrequent and reversible hematological changes; elevation of serum amylase. Increase in prothrombin time has been reported in few patients.

PRECAUTIONS:

  • Cephalosporins should be given with caution to penicillin sensitive patients, as there is some evidence of partial cross-allergenicity between the penicillin’s and cephalosporins.
  • Cefixime should be administered with caution in patients with markedly impaired renal function.
  • Treatment with broad spectrum antibiotics alters the normal flora of the colon and may permit overgrowth of clostridia. Pseudomembranous colitis is associated with the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics (including macrolides, semi-synthetic penicillin’s, lincosamides and cephalosporin’s); it is therefore important to consider its diagnosis in patients who develop diarrhea in association with the use of antibiotics. Symptoms of pseudomembranous colitis may occur during or after antibiotic treatment.
  • Broad-spectrum antibiotics such as cefixime should be prescribed with caution in individuals with a history of gastrointestinal disease, particularly colitis.

WHEN NOT TO USE:

Cefiget 100mg/5ml is contraindicated in:

  • Patients with hypersensitivity to any component of this medication.
  • Patients with known allergy to the cephalosporin group of antibiotics.
  • Children less than six months old as safety and efficacy of cefixime in these patients have not been established

INTERACTIONS:

Anticoagulants:  Care should be exercised in patients receiving anticoagulants and cefixime concomitantly due to the possibility that cefixime may increase prothrombin time. Carbamazepine: Elevated carbamazepine levels have been reported, when cefexime is administered concomitantly. Drug monitoring may be of assistance in detecting alterations in carbamazepine plasma concentrations

DOSE:

The recommended adult dose of Cefiget 100mg/5ml is 200 - 400mg daily according to the severity of infection, given either as a single dose or in two divided doses
