Cepahelxin instruction for use

Cephalexin antibiotic is a first-generation cephalosporin series drug. It refers to bactericidal agents of a wide range of effects on gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms. It is produced by the pharmaceutical industry in several dosage forms for oral administration. Not for injection. As part of external ointments and gels, it does not have sufficient effectiveness due to the specific distribution pathway in the human body.

The cephalexin antibiotic is recommended for use in patients with inflammatory diseases of mild to moderate severity. The drug is most active in case of infections of the upper respiratory tract and diseases of the genitourinary sphere. According to studies, cephalexin is excreted in the urine almost in full unchanged. This allows it to be used effectively for the treatment of cystitis, pyelonephritis, prostatitis, inflammation of the uterine appendages and not complicated.

The advantage of cephalexin is that those microorganisms that have developed immunity to the antibacterial agents of the penicillin series are not resistant to it. Due to this, cephalexin is successfully used in the case of prolonged tracheitis, bronchitis, tonsillitis and tonsillitis. A significant drawback of cephalexin is its inability to overcome the encephalic barrier and penetrate the lining of the brain. This completely excludes the possibility of its use in the treatment of generalized sepsis, encephalitis and meningitis of any etiology.

After oral administration, the maximum concentration of the active substance in the blood is reached after 20 minutes, remains for 6 hours. For oral administration, gelatin capsules, powder for suspension, tablets can be used.

The drug shows particular effectiveness in the treatment of scarlet fever, pertussis and catarrhal tonsillitis of unknown etiology. All forms of staphylococcus, pneumococcus, streptococcus, Escherichia, gonococcus, diplococcus and many other forms of microorganisms are absolutely not resistant to cephalexin. Cephalexin demonstrates excellent performance with the complex therapy of salmonellosis, arthrosis, erysipelas of the skin.
