DRUG INTERACTION

Probenecid may increase the blood concentration of cefixime by decreasing removal of cefixime by the kidney. May increase prothrombin time with anticoagulants.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Cefixime binds to specific penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) located inside the bacterial cell wall, causing the inhibition of the third and last stage of bacterial cell wall synthesis. Cell lysis is then mediated by bacterial cell wall autolytic enzymes such as autolysins; it is possible that cefixime interferes with an autolysin inhibitor.
