Bacteria Home > Cefixime
Cefixime is an antibiotic taken once or twice daily to treat certain bacterial infections. Your dosage is calculated based on the type and severity of your infection, among other factors. By preventing bacteria from making cell walls, cefixime can disrupt the way the cells grow and multiply, eventually causing cell death.
