Clavpod Ds Dry Syrup 30ml Description

Clavpod Syrup is an antibiotic that is used to treat infection of the urinary tract, lungs, airways, sinus, throat and windpipe. It is a combination medicine containing cefpodoxime and clavulanic aci

d as its active ingredients. It acts by the combined action of its two components. Cefpodoxime inhibits the growth of bacteria by interfering with the cell wall and clavulanic acid helps in maintaining the optimal levels of Cefpodoxime. Do not use Clavpod Syrup if you are allergic to the cephalosporin class of antibiotics. Complete the course of antibiotics and do not miss any dose or stop taking this medicine on your own as it leads to antibiotic resistance and recurrence of infection. Before using Clavpod Syrup, inform the doctor if you are pregnant, planning a pregnancy or breastfeeding and about your detailed medical history.

Mode of Action of Clavpod Ds Dry Syrup 30ml

How Does It Work?

  • Clavpod Syrup works by the combined action of both its components: cefpodoxime and clavulanic acid
  • Cefpodoxime controls the growth of bacteria and kills them by inhibiting the synthesis of the bacterial cell wall. However, the bacteria make an enzyme (beta-lactamases) that can destroy Cefpodoxime.
