Cefixime is used to treat certain infections caused by bacteria such as bronchitis, gonorrhea, and infections of the ears, throat, tonsils, and urinary tract. Cefixime is in a class of medications called cephalosporin antibiotics. It works by killing bacteria.

Uses and Dosage

Cefixime is available in various forms: tablets, chewable tablets, capsules, and liquid suspension, all taken by mouth. The dosing frequency typically varies, with administration every 12 or 24 hours, and in the case of gonorrhea treatment, it may involve a single dose. Take cefixime at consistent times each day.

Follow your prescription label’s instructions meticulously, and if any aspect is unclear, consult your doctor or pharmacist for clarification. Adhere precisely to your doctor’s directions, avoiding both overuse and underuse, and do not exceed the prescribed dosage.

For the liquid suspension form, be sure to shake it well before each use to ensure even mixing of the medication.

If you are prescribed chewable tablets, chew them completely before swallowing; do not swallow them whole. In case you have difficulty chewing, you may crush them before swallowing.

Cefixime tablets often have a scored line down the middle, allowing you to break them carefully if your doctor advises taking only half a tablet. Take the specified half and save the remainder for your next dose.

Different cefixime products are absorbed by the body in distinct ways and cannot be substituted interchangeably. If you need to transition from one cefixime product to another, your doctor may need to adjust your dosage.

You should start experiencing improvement within the initial few days of cefixime treatment. If your symptoms persist or worsen, contact your doctor.

Continue taking cefixime even if you start feeling better. Prematurely discontinuing the medication or missing doses could result in incomplete treatment of your infection and contribute to antibiotic resistance in the bacteria causing the infection.

Side Effects

Some side effects may occur that usually do not need medical attention:

  • diarrhea
  • stomach pain

Inform your healthcare provider immediately if you experience any serious side effects:

  • difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • wheezing
  • swelling of the face, throat, tongue, lips, and eyes
  • a return of sore throat, fever, chills, or other signs of infection


Before initiating cefixime, inform your doctor or pharmacist about any allergies you may have, whether to cefixime itself, penicillins, other cephalosporin antibiotics (such as cephalexin), or any other allergens. This medication may contain inactive components capable of triggering allergic reactions or other potential issues.

Prior to using this medication, provide your medical history to your doctor or pharmacist, with particular attention to kidney disease and a specific intestinal condition known as colitis.

Cefixime might impact the effectiveness of live bacterial vaccines (such as the typhoid vaccine). Inform your healthcare professional about your use of cefixime before undergoing any immunizations or vaccinations.

The chewable form of this medication may contain aspartame. If you have phenylketonuria (PKU) or any other condition necessitating restrictions or avoidance of aspartame (or phenylalanine) in your diet, consult your doctor or pharmacist for guidance on safely using this medication.

During pregnancy, this medication should be employed only when it is deemed absolutely necessary. Discuss the potential risks and benefits with your doctor.
