    Active Ingredient:

    Cephalexin

    Description

    Cephadex® is manufactured by Cipla and comprises Cephalexin as an active ingredient. Cephalexin is a semisynthetic, beta-lactam antibiotic belonging to the Cephalosporins (1st generation).

    Indications:

    - upper respiratory tract infections (pharyngitis, otitis media);

    - skin and skin structure infections (SSTIs) (streptococcal and staphylococcal skin infections);

    - bone infections (osteomyelitis);

    - genitourinary infections (cystitis, pyelonephritis, prostatitis).

    Cephadex® can prevent endocarditis (inflammation of the heart valve) caused by an infection.

    MOA (mechanism of action):

    Cephalexin is broad-spectrum antibiotic with bactericidal effect. It hinders the biosynthesis of the cell walls in bacteria leading to their rupture. This eventually leads to bacteria’s death. Cephalexin has shown efficacy against aerobes gram-positive (Staphylococcus aureus (penicillinase-producing strains), Streptococcus pneumoniae (penicillin-susceptible strains), Streptococcus pyogenes); aerobes gram-negative (Escherichia coli, Haemophilus influenzae, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Moraxella (Branhamella) catarrhalis, Proteus mirabilis).

    Dosage

    Cephadex® capsules should be swallowed whole and taken with a full glass of water.

    Treatment course is administered for 7 to 14 days.

    Continue to take Cephadex® even if you feel well.

    Do not stop taking Cephadex® suddenly.

    For otitis media (middle ear infection):

    Adults: The usual dose is 250 mg taken every 6 hours.

    Children (ages 1–14 years): 75–100 mg per kg of body weight, taken daily in divided doses.

    The doctor may double the dose in case of severe infection.

    For skin and skin structure and bone infections:

    Adults: 1–4 g per day taken in divided doses. The usual dose is 250 mg taken every 6 hours or 500 mg taken every 12 hours. If you have a severe infection, your doctor may give you a larger dose.

    Children (ages 1–14 years): 25–50 mg per kg of body weight, taken daily in 4 divided doses.

    The doctor may double this dose for severe cases.

    For genitourinary infections and for pharyngitis:

    Adults: the usual dose is 250 mg taken every 6 hours. If you have uncomplicated cystitis, you may be given 500 mg every 12 hours.

    Children (ages 1–14 years): 25–50 mg per kg of body weight, taken daily in divided doses.

    The doctor may double this dose for severe cases.

    For endocarditis prevention:

    Adults: 2 g taken 30–60 minutes before your procedure.

    Children (ages 1–14 years): 50 mg/kg of body weight taken 30–60 minutes before your procedure.

    The total child’s dose shouldn’t exceed the adult dosage.

    Missing a dose

    If you miss a dose you should take it as soon as you remember about your missing. If it is the time for the next dose you should continue your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose of Cephadex® to compensate the missed dose.

    Overdose

    If an overdose occurs and you are not feeling well, stop taking the medication immediately. You should seek emergency medical attention or contact your healthcare provider immediately.

    Storage

    Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F) and away from excess moisture and heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.
