      Uses and Benefits

      Composition

      The active ingredients of Taxim O CV Tablet 200mg are Cefixime 200mg and Clavulanic Acid 125mg.

      Mechanism of Action of Drugs

      Mechanism of Action of Cefotaxime:

      Cefixime has bactericidal properties. It binds to penicillin-binding proteins present inside the bacterial cell wall and slows down the growth of bacterial cell wall synthesis resulting in bacterial cell death (bactericidal activity).
      Clavulanic Acid is used with other antibiotics to provide strong anti-bacterial activities. Betalactamases are enzymes released by bacteria to protect themselves. Therefore Clavulanic Acid along with the combination of other antibiotics work to inhibit the beta-lactamases – hence killing the bacteria.
