Zinnat Suspension contains Cefuroxime, a second-generation cephalosporin antibiotic. It is designed to treat a wide range of bacterial infections in children and adults who have difficulty swallowing tablets. Cefuroxime works by inhibiting bacterial cell wall synthesis, effectively eliminating susceptible bacteria. The suspension form makes it easier to administer and adjust dosages, particularly for pediatric patients.

Uses

Zinnat Suspension is used to treat bacterial infections such as:

  • Upper and lower respiratory tract infections (bronchitis, pneumonia)
  • Ear infections (otitis media)
  • Throat infections (pharyngitis, tonsillitis)
  • Skin and soft tissue infections
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Early Lyme disease

Benefits

  • Broad-spectrum antibiotic activity against many common bacteria
  • Effective against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria
  • Suitable for patients who have difficulty swallowing tablets, including children and the elderly
  • Suspension form allows for easy dose adjustments based on weight, particularly for children
  • Generally well-tolerated with a lower risk of certain side effects compared to some other antibiotics

Dosage

For Children (typically ages 3 months to 12 years):

  • Usual dosage: 10-15 mg/kg twice daily
  • Typical infections: For most infections, the recommended dose is 125 mg twice daily. For more severe infections or infections caused by less susceptible organisms, the dose can be increased to 250 mg twice daily.
  • Specific infections: For acute otitis media (middle ear infection) or more severe infections, the dosage may be up to 15 mg/kg twice daily (maximum 500 mg per day).

Dosage varies based on the type and severity of infection, patient age, and weight. Always follow your healthcare provider’s instructions or the dosage guidelines on the product label. Shake well before each use to ensure uniform suspension.

Mechanism of Action

Cefuroxime, the active ingredient in Zinnat Suspension, inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis by binding to penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs). This action weakens the bacterial cell wall, causing it to rupture and ultimately leading to bacterial cell death.

Side Effects

Common side effects may include diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, or skin rash. Less common but serious side effects may include allergic reactions (rash, itching, swelling), severe diarrhea (may indicate C. difficile infection), or signs of kidney problems. Seek immediate medical attention for severe side effects.

Warning

Do not use Zinnat Suspension if you have a known allergy to cephalosporin antibiotics or a severe allergy to penicillin. Inform your healthcare provider of all medications you are taking, as Zinnat may interact with certain drugs. Complete the full course of treatment to prevent antibiotic resistance.

Important Information

Take Zinnat Suspension exactly as prescribed, even if you feel better. Skipping doses or stopping early may lead to antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Store the suspension in the refrigerator and discard any unused portion after the prescribed duration.
