Ceclor is a second-generation cephalosporin antibiotic used for the treatment of some bacterial infections. It works by inhibiting bacterial cell wall formation and fights a lot of gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria resistant to beta-lactamases (for example, E. coli, Haemophilus influenzae, Enterobacter spp., Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., Proteus mirabilis, Klebsiella spp., Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Citrobacter spp.), Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp. The drug is used for the treatment of bacterial infections of both respiratory tracts, ENT organs, urinary tract, skin and soft tissues, etc.

Common dosage of Ceclor is 250-500 mg with an interval of 8 hours (or 375-500 mg every 12 hours). For the treatment of gonorrhea, you should take 3,000 mg of the drug at once. The treatment lasts for about a week. Avoid exceeding the dosage prescribed by your physician.

Ceclor enhances the effects of blood thinners. Nephrotoxicity of aminoglycosides, phenylbutazone, polymyxin is enhanced by Ceclor reciprocally. Aminoglycosides, metronidazole, polymyxins, rifampicin increase antibacterial effect of the drug, and chloramphenicole and tetracyclines decrease it. Mg2+ antacides and Al3+ delay the absorption of this drug. Blockers of the channel secretion slow down the excretion of Ceclor by kidneys. Inform your physician if you’re taking potent diuretics, for example ethacrynic acid and furosemide, Probenecid or warfarin.
