Cefpodoxime belongs to the class of cephalosporin antibiotic. It works by inhibiting the growth of bacterias inside the body and thereby kills the bacterias inside the body. Whereas Proxetil acts by preventing the bacterias from forming a protective layer that restricts the action of cefpodoxime in killing the bacterias. Thus the two compounds together form an effective formulation to fight against bacterial infections.
