Suprax Cefixime

Following a recent review by our clinical team, our doctors do not consider it appropriate to supply this treatment via an online consultation only. If you are seeking this or similar medication, we advise you to make an appointment with your regular doctor who can properly assess your suitability for treatment.

Suprax is the brand name of cefixime and marketed by Rhone-Poulenc Rorer. The orally administered antibiotic belongs to the class of cephalosporins, which interfere with the bacteria’s ability to form cell walls. This process causes them to break up and die. Cefixime is prescribed against infections of the ears or the respiratory tract as well as for the treatment of gonorrhoea, a common sexually transmitted disease.

Suprax is generally well tolerated, however it should be used with caution in patients allergic to penicillin. If you use hormonal contraception, please note that this drug might reduce the effectiveness of the combined oral contraceptive pill so you should use another means of contraception while being treated with cefixime.

Suprax Dosaging Instructions

To treat a gonorrhoea infection, Suprax cefixime 400mg is taken as a one-off dose. Swallow all prescribed tablets at the same time, preferrably with a small glass of water. Do not chew them.

Potential side-effects

Like any medication, cefixime may produce side effects. These can include diarrhoea, tummy pains, nausea, vomiting headache, hyperactivity, nervousness, problems sleeping, confusion, muscle tightness or dizziness.
