ngredient of Lexa 500 mg Cap. Lexa 500 mg Cap works by preventing the bacteria from developing its protective layer, the cell wall. Thus, a bacteria cannot survive, resulting in clearing of the infection and management of the symptoms. A bacterial infection happens when bacteria enter the body via a cut on your skin or airways; multiply in the body and cause infection and symptoms. Difficulty breathing, redness or swelling of the skin, persistent cough, or severe stomach pain are some of the symptoms of bacterial infection. Take Lexa 500 mg Cap as advised by your doctor; at regular intervals and for the specified number of days. Complete the full course of treatment. Please do not stop until you finish the entire course of treatment even though you feel better. If the medicine is stopped in between, some bacteria could survive and hence the infection could return and be even more difficult to manage. Share your detailed medical history with your doctor, including any diseases you had in the past, any medicines you are currently taking, any allergies, etc. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, inform your doctor. When taking Lexa 500 mg Cap, you should not take any other medicines without discussing them with your doctor as it can alter the effects of medicines resulting in serious adverse effects.
