Cepodem XP 325 Tablet
Cepodem Xp 325 Tablet is used for treating respiratory tract infections and urinary tract infections. This medication is a combination of two Cefpodoxime and Clavulanic Acid.
This medicine treats the infections by not allowing the bacteria from growing further and getting spread. You should inform your doctor before taking this medicine if you suffer from any health condition and taking any medication for the same.

Cepodem Xp 325 Tablet works as a bactericidal by binding to penicillin-binding proteins and inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis. It also binds to beta-lactamase enzyme produced by bacterial cells, which in turn inhibits its enzymatic action and prevents beta-lactam antibiotics from being metabolised by the enzyme.
