How to Take Cefixime?

Your dose and the duration of your treatment is based on the following:

The typical dose of Cefixime is 400 mg once a day or 200 mg twice a day for 7 to 14 days. For pediatric patients, the dose is 8 mg per body kg once a day or 4 mg per body kg twice a day.

Take Cefixime regularly at an evenly spaced time. You can take it with or without food. If you forget to take your dose, take it as soon as you remember.
