COMMON BRAND(S): Suprax

GENERIC NAME(S): Winex

Winex is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. This medication is known as a cephalosporin antibiotic. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria.

This antibiotic treats only bacterial infections. It will not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.

Which drugs or supplements interact with Winex?

Probenecid (Benemid) may increase the blood concentration of Winex by decreasing removal of Winex by the kidney. This interaction sometimes is used to enhance the effect of cephalosporins.

Combining Winex with aminoglycosides (for example, tobramycin produces additive bacterial killing effects but also may increase the risk of harmful effects to the kidney.)

Exenatide (Byetta) may delay or reduce the absorption of cephalosporins. Cephalosporins should be administered one hour before exenatide.

Winex may cause a false positive urine ketone test.

Hello Lalainuk. I'd say yes. But I'd leave it at one glass. As you know Winex is an antibiotic, and as a rule antibiotics and alcohol are not mixed. When alcohol is consumned along with Winex, it weakens the drug, in as much as it (Winex) leaves your body earlier than intended. So, its not receiving the full theraputic effects of the drug. Thats why I suggested only the one glass. But, I'm not a doctor, so I'd check with your doctor or pharmacist to confirm or get thier opinion.very best to you

How should this medicine be used?

Winex comes as a tablet, chewable tablet, capsule, and suspension (liquid) to take by mouth. It is usually taken with or without food every 12 or 24 hours . When used for the treatment of gonorrhea it may be given in a single dose. Take Winex at around the same times every day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take Winex exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

Shake the suspension well before each use to mix the medication evenly.

If you are taking the chewable tablets, chew these tablets completely before swallowing; do not swallow the chewable tablets whole. If you have trouble chewing you may crush them before swallowing.

Winex tablets come with a line down the middle of the tablet. If your doctor tells you to take half a tablet, break it carefully on the line. Take half the tablet as directed, and save the other half for your next dose.

Different Winex products are absorbed by the body in different ways and cannot be substituted for one another. If you need to switch from one Winex product to another, your doctor may need to adjust your dose.

You should begin to feel better during the first few days of treatment with Winex. If your symptoms do not improve or get worse, call your doctor.

Continue to take Winex even if you feel better. If you stop taking Winex too soon or skip doses, your infection may not be completely treated and the bacteria may become resistant to antibiotics.

Why is this medication prescribed?

Winex is used to treat certain infections caused by bacteria such as bronchitis (infection of the airway tubes leading to the lungs); gonorrhea (a sexually transmitted disease); and infections of the ears, throat, tonsils, and urinary tract. Winex is in a class of medications called cephalosporin antibiotics. It works by killing bacteria.

Antibiotics such as Winex will not work for colds, flu, or other viral infections. Using antibiotics when they are not needed increases your risk of getting an infection later that resists antibiotic treatment.

What other drugs will affect Winex?

Other drugs may interact with Winex, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Tell each of your health care providers about all medicines you use now and any medicine you start or stop using.

Winex During Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

Pregnancy

Winex has been assigned to pregnancy category B by the FDA. Animal studies failed to reveal evidence of fetal harm. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Winex is only recommended for use during pregnancy when benefit outweighs risk.

Breastfeeding

There are no data on the excretion of Winex into human milk. Other cephalosporins are excreted into human milk in small amounts. While adverse effects are unlikely, the infant should be monitored closely.

What is Winex, and how does it work (mechanism of action)?

Winex is a semi-synthetic (partially man-made), oral antibiotic in the cephalosporin family of antibiotics. The cephalosporin family includes cephalexin (Keflex), cefaclor (Ceclor), cefuroxime (Zinacef), cefpodoxime (Vantin), cefprozil (Cefzil), and many injectable forms. Like other cephalosporins, Winex stops bacteria from multiplying by preventing bacteria from forming the walls that surround them. The walls are necessary to protect bacteria from their environment and to keep the contents of the bacterial cell together; most bacteria cannot survive without a cell wall. Winex is active against a very wide spectrum of bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes (the cause of strep throat), Hemophilus influenzae, Moraxella catarrhalis, E. coli, Klebsiella, Proteus mirabilis, Salmonella, Shigella, and Neisseria gonorrhoeae. The FDA approved Winex in April 1989.
