Cefdinir is a prescription drug used to treat infections caused by bacteria such as:

  • Infections of the airway tubes leading to lungs like bronchitis and pneumonia
  • Infections of the skin and soft tissue
  • Infections of the middle ear (otitis media)
  • Sinusitis
  • Laryngitis
  • Strep throat
  • Tonsillitis
  • Cellulitis

Cefdinir is a less preferred option for otitis media, strep throat and pneumonia for those with a severe allergy to penicillin. It may also be used for purposes as determined by your physician. This drug is a semi-synthetic oral antibiotic from the cephalosporin family which includes cefixime and cephalexin. Like other antibiotics, Cefdinir also works by killing the bacteria directly. It binds and inhibits the production of protein in the cell wall of the bacteria.  Proteins are important components of the cell wall. This kills the bacteria and stops the infections. 

Why Buy Cefdinir?

Cefdinir is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that effectively works against a wide variety of bacterial infections. It works in similar ways with penicillins. Cefdinir is approved for medical use by the FDA since 1991 and is considered as one of the most prescribed medications in the United State. It’s available in various brand names in the market as well as generic names.

How to Take Cefdinir?

Cefdinir comes in a capsule form that you have to take orally. Your dose depends on your condition and the severity of the infection. The typical dose for an adult is 300 mg every 12 hours of 600 mg once a day for 5 to 10 days. The recommended dose for children 6 months to 12 years of age is based on body kg. Give 7 mg per body kg every 12 hours. You can also give 14 mg per body kg once a day for 5 to 10 days.

Take your medication exactly as directed. Take it at around the same time each day. You can take it with or without food.  You should start feeling better during the first few days of your treatment. Do not stop taking your medication even if you feel well. Finish the entire course of your treatment. 

Things to Remember

  • If you are taking antacids and iron supplements, take it two hours before or after taking Cefdinir. Antacids can reduce the absorption of Cefdinir.
  • This medication is generally well-tolerated. However, like any other antibiotics, Cefdinir may also cause side effects. Common side effects include nausea and vomiting, headache, rash and abdominal pain. Rare side effects are an allergic reaction, constipation and dry mouth. In case of serious side effects seek medical help as soon as possible.
