Systemic antibacterial agents. Short-acting sulfanilamides
Streptocid, like other sulfanilamides, disrupts the formation of growth factors in microorganisms, such as folic, dihydrofolic acid and other substances containing para-aminobenzoic acid in their molecule. Because the para-aminobenzoic acid structure is close to that of streptocid, the latter as a competitive antagonist of the said acid is incorporated into the metabolic chain of microorganisms and disrupts the metabolic processes, leading to a bacteriostatic effect.
Infectious diseases caused by microorganisms susceptible to the medicine: infectious diseases of the skin and mucosa (wounds, ulcers, bedsores), enterocolitis, pyelitis, cystitis.
The medicine should be taken orally during or after meals with 150–200 ml of water. The single dose for adults and children over 12 years old is 600 mg — 1.2 g, the daily dose is 3–6 g. The daily dose should be divided into 5 doses.
