Ceftin (Cefuroxime 500 mg)
Generic Ceftin (Cefuroxime 500 mg) guide:
What is this drug called Generic Ceftin?
This is a collective name or term used for all analogs of the brand-name medication sold in the U.S. under the advertised name Ceftin. In fact, the same medication even manufactured by the same pharmaceutical company that markets the drug in the U.S. under this name, GlaxoSmithKline, sells the pills under a different name in other countries. In the UK, Russia, and other countries the drug sold by the British pharmaceutical company is registered and called Zinnat. Generic antibiotics with the same active ingredient and formulation are manufactured by dozens of different pharmaceutical companies and are also called differently but collectively referred to as Generic Ceftin to make it easier for the customers to find the right drug. You can easily detect whether the drug you are about to buy corresponds to the branded medication by compound and spectrum of activity if you check the name of the active substance which is indicated below the registered trademark and for Ceftin it is Cefuroxime.
Are generic medications inferior to the brand-name medications?
Although generic pills are usually sold cheaper than the branded drugs, the low price is not an indicator of bad quality. Generic Ceftin, before it is launched onto the market of any country in the world, is thoroughly tested for compliance, quality of the ingredients, production process conformity to the norms, and naturally, the correspondence to the original formula. Generics are usually cheaper because of several reasons that do not affect the quality of pills such as lower manufacturing costs, lack of advertising, marketing of the drugs in a limited number of countries or regions, and so on. Therefore, if you need an antibiotic based on Cefuroxime and want to get it cheaper, you can without any doubts buy Generic Ceftin from our online pharmacy and you will receive the best quality medication available today at the lowest price.
When it is suitable to buy and use Generic Ceftin?
Although we sell antibiotics without prescriptions because we located our warehouses where these drugs are sold over-the-counter, we warn our customers that they need to be cautious using any antibiotics. First of all, you need to buy Ceftin or its generic only if your physician or other doctor tells you so based on your diagnosis. You should never start using any antibiotics if an infection is not confirmed. Secondly, you need to undergo a sensitivity test that will show whether the infection you have is curable with this antibiotic. Although the majority of antibiotics available today are broad spectrum drugs, i.e. are effective against a number of bacteria, some of the bacteria can be unsusceptible to Ceftin or you may have already developed resistance to cephalosporins (the class of antibiotics to which Ceftin belongs).
The common conditions in which the medicine is prescribed are bronchitis, pneumonia, sinusitis, otitis media (middle ear infection), bacterial sore throat, urinary tract infections, meningitis, infection of joints, Lyme disease, and many others if the pathogen that caused the disease is sensitive to Cefuroxime.
How the antibacterial effect of the pills is rendered?
Cefuroxime renders bactericidal effect, i.e. it breaks the synthesis of the bacterial cell wall. It has a broad spectrum of antimicrobial action and is highly effective against Gram-positive microorganisms, including strains resistant to penicillins.
How the medication should be used for various conditions?

Possible adverse reactions the medicine can cause
If you order Ceftin and experience chills, rash, itching, urticaria, bronchospasm it means that you are allergic to the medication and should discontinue its use immediately and consult your doctor.
Other possible adverse reactions include itching in the perineum, vaginitis, spasms and pain in the abdomen, ulceration of the oral mucosa, and candidiasis of the oral cavity.
If you have any of these negative symptoms or any other negative symptoms after the first of several intakes of the medication, you should inform your doctor and possibly change the antibiotic in your therapy.
Combined use with other medicines
Some of the medications, for instance drugs used to cope with heartburn, can lower the effect of the medication. Other drugs can enhance the negative effect of the antibiotic on the kidneys and other organs. Therefore, if you use any medications when your doctor prescribes you the drug, make sure to inform him about all pills that you take or plan to take.
Symptoms and therapy of an overdose
The most pronounced symptoms of an overdose with Cefuroxime are seizures.
