Suprax belongs to a group of drugs called cephalosporin antibiotics. It treats infections caused by certain bacteria, especially very sensitive ones.
There are certain limitations to taking Suprax. For example, it has to be prescribed with extreme caution to pregnant or breast-feeding women, patients with diarrhea, stomach or bowel problems including inflammation, blood clotting troubles, liver or kidney diseases. The use of this drug in patients who are on dialysis treatment and in those who suffer from poor nutrition is strongly discouraged. Also, of course, Suprax cannot be used by those with a severe allergice reaction to antibiotics, especially to penicillin and beta-lactam antibiotic medications such as Imipenem.
Suprax can be taken both with or without food. However, if the ingestion commonly causes stomach upset in your case, it is preferable to take the medication along with a meal to reduce the extent of this problem. Remember that Suprax and other similar medications need to be used throughout the whole term of the treatment regimen assigned by your healthcare provider, even if you feel all the symptoms have gone in a few days. You need to give the drug time to eleminate the infection completely.
