Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

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

A: No, Mahacef Oral Drop 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 Mahacef Oral Drop on my own if I feel better?

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

Q: Can I take Mahacef Oral Drop for stomach infection?

A: No, Mahacef Oral Drop 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.
