Ceroxim 500 mg is the oral drug formulation containing the active ingredient cefuroxime sodium. It belongs to a class of antibiotics known as cephalosporins. Doctors prescribe Ceroxim to treat the following bacterial infections:

  • Tonsilitis/pharyngitis - Ceroxim tables treat adult patients and paediatrics 13 years and older with mild to moderate tonsilitis/pharyngitis caused by susceptible bacteria. Tonsillitis is an inflammation of the tonsils, while pharyngitis is an inflammation of the pharynx resulting in a sore throat.

 

  • Otitis media - Ceroxim treats pediatric patients with acute bacterial otitis media (an infection in the middle ear).

 

  • Sinusitis (infection of the sinuses) - The tablets are prescribed to treat adults and pediatric patients 13 years and older with mild to moderate acute bacterial maxillary sinusitis

 

  • Bronchitis- It is given to adults and paediatrics to treat inflammation of the lining of bronchial tubes that carry air from your lungs.

 

  • Skin and skin structure infections

 

  • Urinary tract infections

 

  • Gonorrhoea - It is a sexually transmitted infection caused by bacteria.

 

  • Lyme disease - Cefuroxime effectively treats Lyme disease, a vector-borne disease transmitted to humans through the bite of infected black-legged ticks.

Ceroxim 500 should be used only to treat or prevent infections caused by bacteria. It is not effective against viral infections such as cold and flu.

Serious and occasionally fatal hypersensitivity reactions have been reported in patients on antibacterials like Cefuroxime. These reactions are more likely to affect people with a history of Cefuroxime hypersensitivity or a history of sensitivity to multiple allergens. 

Do not use Ceroxim tablets because you have an infection. Cefuroxime tablets are used to kill bacteria or germs which cause infections. The infection can be cleared up if you correctly take your medication. You should not use Ceroxim tablets if you are allergic to cephalosporins.

The most common side effects of Ceroxim 500 are associated with gastrointestinal disturbances. These include nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting and abdominal pain. However, gastrointestinal side effects increased with the higher recommended dose. Call your doctor if any of these persist for longer or become troublesome.

Administer Ceroxim tablets with or without food.
