I am 6GPD deficient and my son is also 6GPD deficient. He is 1 and half year old. He is suffering from fever/serious diarrhea/vomiting since 1 June and he is not eating & drinking water etc except breast milk . Doctor has advised him CEFIXIME (Suprax) for % days. Is CEFIXIME (Suprax) is safe for 6GPD patient. Please advice.
u can give him cefixime as it is not in list of drug
mainly sulfonamides and anti malarial drugs are not to given
spiramycin and nitrofurantoin must be avoided
keep one list in ur pocket ,drugs to be avoided
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Yes it is safe to use Cefixime in G6PD patients so you can use it for your son and i guess you might have told your doctor about his deficiency and after considering that only he may have prescribed it.
