Cefuroxime is a second-generation cephalosporin antibiotic that can cross the blood-brain barrier. It works by slowing the growth of bacteria in the human body.
Doctors prescribe Cefuroxime to treat a wide range of bacterial infections, for example, upper respiratory tract infections (bacterial sinusitis) and lower respiratory tract infections (bronchitis). Cefuroxime can also treat urinary tract infections, Lyme disease, impetigo, and gonorrhea. Its usage after cataract surgery can significantly decrease the risk of endophthalmitis development.
Cefuroxime is available on the market under the brand name Ceftin, but its generic alternatives available for the customers for a more affordable price. You can order Cefuroxime in the forms of tablets, film-coated tablets, powder and injection for suspension. You should take it by mouth every 12 hours for 5 to 10 days.
Cefuroxime will not treat viral infections such as flu. You shouldn’t use antibiotics in this case because antibiotic resistance can develop.
