Ceclor® is the brand name for the generic antibacterial drug cefaclor. Used in the treatment of bacterial infections, the medication is generally prescribed for a duration longer than the symptoms of the infection last, to ensure that all the bacteria are removed from the system. As with other medications, there is a danger that bacterial strains can become resistant to Ceclor® if it is used too often or if it is stopped too soon.

There are a number of bacterial infections that are particularly susceptible to the medications contained in a dose of Ceclor®. Various types of pneumonia and other lower respiratory tract infections can be successfully treated with the medication, as well as the different infections and conditions caused by the streptococcus family of bacteria. Safe to administer to children, it can also be used in the treatment of rheumatic fever. Urinary tract infections can also be treated with Ceclor®.

Strains of bacteria can be very resistant to medication, and because they can develop resistances to newly administered drugs medical professionals will generally only prescribe Ceclor® for conditions and strains that have been proven susceptible. Some medical professionals will order a bacterial culture to be taken to determine exactly what an individual has. As there are resistant strains within the bacteria that cause the same conditions as vulnerable strains, determining exactly what is making a person ill can be vital in treating him or her appropriately.

The proper dosage depends on the condition of the patient as well as his or her age and weight. Available in pills and a liquid form, Ceclor® has a flavored form suitable for children. Taking the drug at the same time every day will help keep a regular amount of it in the system, allowing it to work more thoroughly. This will also help to keep the bacteria from forming a resistance to the drug. Doing that, and taking all the prescribed medications until the supply runs out, will help ensure that all the bacteria in the system have been killed; if they are not completely gone, the possibility of a relapse is high.

Most of the side effects associated with Ceclor® are mild, and include gastrointestinal distresses such as nausea, upset stomach, diarrhea, and vomiting. Serious side effects such as jaundice, confusion, or the manifestation of a new illness, should be reported to a medical professional. If there is a strain of resistant bacteria present in the gastrointestinal system, it may result in severe illness after the administration of Ceclor® has ceased.
