Rcifax Dt -100 UNSURE Description

Rcifax Dt Tablet is an antibiotic that helps the liver to remove harmful toxins from the blood. This helps in preventing brain damage caused by hepatic encephalopathy. It can be taken with or without food, preferably at the same time every day. You should use it in the dose and duration advised by your doctor. To get the most benefit, take Rcifax Dt Tablet at the same time each day. You should continue taking this medicine for as long as your doctor prescribes. Stopping it early may make the infection come back and be harder to treat.

Some people may experience side effects like vomiting, headache, dizziness, nausea, rashes, joint pain, and depression. These side effects are usually temporary and go away during treatment as your body adjusts to the medicine. If these side effects bother you or don't go away, consult your doctor. Your urine may become reddish in color due to this medicine. This is normal and harmless.

Before starting treatment with Rcifax Dt Tablet, inform your doctor if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or suffering from any liver, kidney, or heart problems. Also, let your doctor know if you are allergic to any medicine.
