Teflaro Uses

How Does This Medicine Work?

Teflaro is a cephalosporin antibiotic. Cephalosporins are part of a larger group of medications known as beta-lactam antibiotics, named after the ring-like "lactam" structure of these drugs. Teflaro works by stopping bacteria from making cell walls, which eventually causes the bacteria to die. Cephalosporins are related to penicillin.
