What Is Cefpodoxime Used For?
Cefpodoxime is approved for use in children as young as two months old. Because the cefpodoxime dosage used in children is based on weight, it is important that your healthcare provider has an accurate weight for your child. It may be best to actually weigh the child, as a child's weight frequently changes.
On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this medicine for something other than treating the infections discussed in this article. This is called an "off-label" use. Using cefpodoxime to treat or prevent other types of infections would be examples of off-label uses.
