Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

Q: I was given Ceftas Syrup for urinary tract infection, after taking it for two days I am feeling perfectly fine. Can I discontinue taking this medicine?

A: No, Ceftas Syrup is an antibiotic and antibiotics have to be taken for the complete course as prescribed by your doctor. Though you will be feeling better, some bacteria will still be alive in your system. This can lead to these bacteria becoming resistant to antibiotics. To ensure complete and effective treatment, take medicines for the full course even if you start feeling fine midway.

Q: Can I stop taking Ceftas Syrup on my own if I feel better?

A: No, do not stop taking Ceftas Syrups on your own. Complete the entire course of this medicine to avoid antibiotic resistance.

Q: Can I take Ceftas Syrup for stomach infection?

A: No, Ceftas Syrup may be effective for controlling stomach infection. Moreover, stomach infection could be due to various reasons; thus, you should not take this medicine for any infection without consulting your doctor.
