What is Cefprozil?

Cefprozil is a cephalosporin antibiotic. It’s also sold under the brand name of Cefzil.

How Does Cefprozil Work?

Like other antibiotics, cefprozil works by preventing the growth of bacteria.

Cefprozil Dosage and Treatment

Always follow your doctors dosage instructions.

Side Effects of Cefprozil

Like any FDA approved medication, cefprozil is considered safe, but it may cause side effects. Potential side effects that you could experience with cefprozil include:

  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Stomach pain
  • Dizziness
  • Tiredness
  • Weakness
  • Diaper rash
  • Kidney problems
  • Mood or mental changes (like confusion)
  • Easy bleeding or bruising
  • Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea (a severe intestinal condition)
  • Yellowing of the skin or eyes
  • Vaginal yeast infection
  • Oral thrush
  • Rash
  • Itching
  • Swelling of the throat, tongue, face, lips, or eyes

Considerations and Precautions of Cefprozil

While generally considered safe, cefprozil is not right for everybody. To avoid potentially serious complications, always tell your doctor about your medical condition and any medications you take.

Cefprozil Interactions

Cefprozil may cause interactions with other medications. Make sure you tell your doctor about all the medications you take, including over the counter medications, vitamins, and supplements. Be especially sure to mention if you take any of the following:

  • Other cephalosporin antibiotics
  • Hormonal birth control
  • Water pills (diuretics)
  • Amikacin
  • Kanamycin
  • Gentamicin
  • Probenecid (Probalan)
  • Neomycin (Neo-Fradin)
  • Tobramycin
  • Streptomycin

Other Cefprozil Considerations

Cefprozil may cause complications if you have certain health conditions. Be sure to tell your doctor about your medical history. Especially make sure you tell your doctor about any of the following:

  • Allergy to cephalosporin antibiotics, penicillin, or other medications
  • Kidney disease
  • Colitis (intestinal disease)
  • Phenylketonuria (PKU

Cefprozil and Pregnancy or Breastfeeding

Cefprozil is thought to be safe for use in pregnant women, but be sure to discuss the benefits and risks of taking cefprozil if you are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant. Contact your doctor immediately if you become pregnant while taking cefprozil.

Cefprozil may pass into breast milk and harm infants. Talk to your doctor before taking cefprozil if you are breastfeeding.

Can you Buy Cefprozil Online?

While it is possible to buy cefprozil online, it’s crucial that you are careful about what websites you use to buy it from. Federal law requires everybody to talk to a doctor before getting any prescription medication, including Cefprozil, so any website claiming that they can ship you medication from another country without speaking to a doctor first is skirting the law.
