Cefpodoxime Oral Suspension Uses

Cefpodoxime Oral Suspension comes in a class of medication known as cephalosporin antibiotic, used to treat a broad range of bacterial infections. It works by inhibiting the growth of bacteria in various parts of the body. This antibiotic is only used to treat bacterial infections and will not treat viral infections (e.g. the common cold, flu, etc). 

Taking any antibiotic when not needed can make it ineffective for future infections. Medications that reduce or block gastric acid, such as proton pump inhibitors/PPIs, H2 blockers, and antacids, may reduce cephalosporin absorption and reduce its potency. When choosing a medication, it is important to weigh the risks against the benefits it will have. Ultimately, this is a decision between you and your doctor.
