Ceclor (cefaclor) is a cephalosporin antibiotic used to treat a range of infections of the middle ear, skin, urinary tract, throat, and respiratory tract. It is suitable for use in all ages, though young and elderly patients will require modified dosage.

Note that individuals who have had an allergic reaction to other cephalosporin antibiotics are likely to have an allergic reaction to Ceclor; alternatives are probably more suitable.

When to Use Ceclor

Ceclor is effective against certain bacteria, predominantly:

  • Haemophilus influenzae
  • Staphylococcal aureus
  • Streptococcus pyogenes
  • Escherichia coli
  • Proteus mirabilis
  • Klebsiella spp.

The above are common causes of infection, but very similar infections can be caused by other bacteria, viruses, or fungi. Ideally patients will have the bacteria identified by a doctor or a lab prior to taking Ceclor; this ensures a speedy recovery and also helps prevent bacterial resistance.

The bacteria listed above can cause:

  • Pharyngitis
  • Tonsillitis
  • Otitis media
  • Skin infections
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Lower respiratory tract infections
  • Other infections when penicillin cannot be taken

Again, the same or very similar infections may be caused by different bacteria that aren't susceptible to Ceclor. Have the bacteria identified if at all possible.

How to Use Ceclor

Ceclor comes in tablets, long-acting tablets, chewable tablets, and oral solution. Treatment is remarkably similar with all of these, and with all conditions it treats.

In adults:

  • Take 250 mg Ceclor every 8 or 12 hours.
  • For severe infections, dosage can be doubled to 500 mg every 8 or 12 hours.
  • Continue treatment for 7 to 10 days, or for as long as a doctor recommends.

In children:

  • Dosage is determined by weight; typically 20 mg per kg of body weight, divided into three daily doses.
  • For severe infections dosage may be doubled to 40 mg per kg of body weight, divided into three daily doses.
  • Continue treatment for 7 to 10 days, or for as long as a doctor recommended.

Food is optional, but many patients experience stomach-related side effects if taking Ceclor on an empty stomach. Because antibiotics work best when the medication stays at consistent levels in the body, it's best taken at the same times each day.

Many patients feel better on the first day or two of use, and often the infection appears to be gone after three or four days of use. Regardless, treatment should continue; either for 7 to 10 days or for as long as a doctor recommended. Failure to complete treatment can lead to a resurgence of the infection, this time with resistant bacteria that will be harder to combat.

Warnings & Side Effects

For the most part Ceclor side effects are mild and similar to those experienced with any antibiotic, including:

  • Nausea
  • Stomach pain
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Headache

The above side effects are not cause for concern unless severe enough to be disruptive. Taking Ceclor with food may relieve most of them. Patients with preexisting gastrointestinal issues are at increased risk of experiencing side effects.

Wait at least one hour before or after taking Ceclor before taking antacids.

As mentioned above, those who have had an allergic reaction to other cephalosporin antibiotics will probably have one to Ceclor.

Ceclor can interact with other medications. Of particular concern are blood thinners and probenecid, though others can also cause mild complications. Always check with a doctor or pharmacist before taking multiple medications.
