Ozcef


What it is used for

Infections due to susceptible microorganisms. Lower respiratory infections, including pnemonia, bronchitis and exacerbations of chronic bronchitis. Upper respiratory tract infections, including pharyngitis and tonsillitis and otitis media. Note: Penicillin is the usual drug of choice in the treatment and prevention of streptococcal infections, including the prophylaxis of rheumatic fever. Cefaclor appears to be as effective as phenoxymethylpenicillin in the eradication of Streptococci from the nasopharynx; however, substantial data establishing the efficacy of cefaclor in the subsequent prevention of rheumatic fever are not available at present. Skin and skin structure infections. Urinary tract infections, inclyding pyelonephritis and cystitis. Appropriate culture and susceptibility studies should be performed to determine susceptibility of the causative organism to cefaclor.
