Cefixime (Suprax)

Cefixime is an antibiotic prescribed to treat bacterial infections. It belongs to the antibiotic class of cephalosporins alongside cefdinir, ceftriaxone, and cefpodoxime. 

The brand name of cefixime is Suprax, and this medication is available as an oral capsule, oral tablet, chewable tablet, and liquid suspension. 

Cefixime is a broad-spectrum antibiotic, which means that it is able to treat a broader range of bacterial infections because it is effective against both gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. Broad-spectrum antibiotics are often helpful in cases where a bacterial infection may be due to multiple types of bacteria, or if a doctor suspects that someone is infected by more than one type of bacteria at the same time. 

How Does Cefixime Work?

Cefixime works by impeding the bacteria’s cell wall production. The cell wall is the bacteria’s outer layer that protects it and keeps everything inside contained. However, by inhibiting the cell wall’s production, the pressure inside the bacteria rises until the membrane bursts, killing the bacteria. As the number of bacteria in your body decreases, your body can more easily fight the infection. 

What Is Cefixime Used For?

Cefixime is prescribed to treat bacterial infections, including:

  • bronchitis
  • gonorrhea
  • ear infections
  • urinary tract infections
  • tonsillitis
  • strep throat
  • sinus infections
  • pneumonia
  • salmonella

This list is not complete, and cefixime may be prescribed to treat conditions not included. 

How to Take Cefixime?

It is important to follow your prescription instructions for cefixime. Specifically, do not take more or less than you have been prescribed or for longer than recommended. Furthermore, your symptoms may improve before the infection is entirely gone, so you should continue taking cefixime for the entire prescription length, even if you feel better. 

Cefixime may be taken with or without food. If you notice that cefixime gives you an upset stomach, taking it with food may help lessen this unpleasant side effect.

Cefixime is generally prescribed to be taken every 12 or 24 hours, and it is best to take it at the same time each day. 

Those taking the chewable tablet must chew it before swallowing. Additionally, those taking the liquid suspension must shake it well before measuring out a dose. All doses should be measured using a dose-measuring spoon or measuring cup to ensure the correct amount is measured. 

Cefixime tablets come with a line down the middle. If your doctor has prescribed half a tablet, break it carefully along this line. Take one half, then save the other half for the next dose. 

The body absorbs the different cefixime products in different ways, so you cannot substitute one for another. If you need to switch products, discuss this with your doctor, as they may need to adjust your dose. 

If you miss a dose of cefixime, take it as soon as you remember. However, skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next dose––do not take multiple doses at once to make up for missed doses. 

In the United States, Cefixime is available under the following brand names:

  • Suprax

Common side effects associated with Cefixime may include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Indigestion
  • Stomach pain
  • Vaginal itching or discharge

More serious side effects which should be reported to your healthcare provider immediately may include:

  • Jaundice
  • Severe stomach pain
  • Bloody or watery diarrhea
  • A seizure
  • Pale or yellowed skin
  • Confusion
  • Dark colored urine
  • Low blood counts (fever, flu-like symptoms, mouth sores, swollen gums, rapid heart rate, easy bruising, feeling light-headed, unusual bleeding, skin sores)
  • Severe skin reactions (sore throat, fever, burning in the eyes, swelling in the tongue or face, a red or purple skin rash that spreads, blistering, peeling)

The above lists of possible side effects associated with Cefixime are not exhaustive and other side effects may occur. If you experience any severe or persistent side effects while taking Cefixime, it is important to contact your healthcare provider right away.
