However, not all antibiotics are created equal. That’s why we’re going to discuss what cefdinir is, how it works, the benefits and risks, and other considerations and precautions of cefdinir. Then, we’ll talk more about how you can get a cefdinir prescription online.

What is Cefdinir?

Cefdinir is a cephalosporin antibiotic that’s also known under the brand name of Omnicef. It’s used to treat bacterial infections. It does not treat viral infections like a cold or the flu.

How Does Cefdinir Work?

Like all antibiotics, cefdinir prevents the growth of bacteria.

Cefdinir Dosage and Treatment

These dosages are only a guideline. Always follow your doctor’s dosage instructions as they may vary from these guidelines.

The typical dosage of cefdinir is 600 mg once a day or 300 mg twice per day for 10 days.

Always take the entire course of antibiotics prescribed by your doctor, even if you start feeling better. Failing to do so can lead to a recurrence of your infection or the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Benefits of Cefdinir

Cefdinir is used to treat a variety of bacterial infections, including:

Do not use cefdinir for viral infections like a cold or the flu.

Side Effects of Cefdinir

Like any medication, cefdinir does carry a risk of side effects. Potential side effects that you could experience while taking cefdinir include:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Indigestion
  • Dizziness
  • Reddish stool
  • Abdominal or stomach pain
  • Fatigue
  • Easy bleeding or bruising
  • Kidney problems
  • Mental or mood changes (like confusion)
  • Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea (a severe intestinal condition)
  • Oral thrush
  • Vaginal yeast infection
  • Skin rash
  • Severe allergic reaction
  • Chest pain
  • Flu symptoms
  • Seizure
  • Yellowing of the skin or eyes
  • Diaper rash (in infants)
  • Increased thirst
  • Lack of appetite

Considerations and Precautions of Cefdinir

While cefdinir is generally considered safe, it isn’t appropriate for every individual or condition. Be sure to tell your doctor about all medications you take and your complete medical history.

Cefdinir Interactions

Cefdinir may interact with certain medications. Make sure you tell your doctor about all the medications you take, including vitamins, supplements, and over the counter medications. Be especially sure to mention any of the following:

  • Hormonal birth control
  • Other antibiotics
  • Probenecid (Benemid)
  • Vitamin or mineral supplements that contain iron

Other Cefdinir Considerations

Cefdinir may cause complications with certain medical conditions. Always share your complete medical history with your doctor, especially:

  • Allergies to penicillin, other cephalosporin antibiotics, or other medications
  • Colitis (intestinal disease)
  • Kidney disease
  • Diabetes

Cefdinir and Pregnancy or Breastfeeding

Always talk to your doctor before taking any medication if you are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant. Cefdinir appears to be safe for pregnant women, but you should discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor if you are pregnant or become pregnant while taking cefdinir.

Cefdinir does not seem to pass into breast milk. However, you should still talk to your doctor about using cefdinir if you are breastfeeding.

Can You Buy Cefdinir Online?

While it is possible to buy cefdinir online, you need to exercise some caution. Federal law requires everybody to speak to a doctor before getting a prescription medication like cefdinir, so websites that claim to be able to ship you medication from other countries without talking to a doctor first are skirting the law.

Fortunately, there is a legal, reputable, and safe way to buy cefdinir online. With PlushCare, you can have a phone or video appointment with a licensed physician. If they determine that cefdinir is right for you, they can electronically send a prescription to a pharmacy near you.
