What is Cilicaine VK?
Cilicaine VK containing the active ingredient phenoxymethyl penicillin is considered a penicillin antibiotic type of medication. The medication works by preventing the bacteria from forming cell walls to stop the growth and kill the bacteria causing infections. The capsules are mainly used to treat respiratory and lung infections in children. It can also be used to treat bacterial infections such as dental abscesses, tonsillitis, otitis media, cellulitis, and rheumatic fevers. The antibiotics can be used to treat bacterial infections but cannot be used to treat viral infections such as the cold or common flu.

How is Cilicaine VK used?
Cilicaine VK is usually taken 4 times per day or as directed by a doctor. The capsules should be taken on an empty stomach along with a glass of water. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the patient's condition and their response to their therapy. Continue to take the medication until the fully prescribed cycle is complete, even if symptoms have disappeared, as abruptly discontinuing the treatment can cause a relapse in the condition and allow the bacteria to become immune to the antibiotics.

Adverse effects
Patients using Cilicaine VK may encounter unwanted side effects such as:

  • Nausea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Joint pain
  • Fever
  • Colitis

Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or worsen.

Warnings
Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.

Cilicaine VK is not always suitable for all patients. Always consult your health care provider prior to using this medication if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to conceive, using any other medication (prescription or non-prescription), using any herbal products or supplements, or if you have any allergies or other health problems.
