Cefprozil is employed in the treatment of specific bacterial infections, including bronchitis and infections affecting the skin, ears, sinuses, throat, and tonsils. It belongs to the class of medications known as cephalosporin antibiotics, acting by inhibiting the growth of bacteria.

Uses and Dosage

Take this medication orally as instructed by your doctor, typically once or twice daily. If stomach upset occurs, you may take it with food.

Before each dose, ensure to shake the bottle well. Measure the dose accurately using a special measuring device or spoon; refrain from using a household spoon as it may lead to an incorrect dose.

The dosage is determined based on your medical condition and response to treatment. For children, the dosage is also adjusted according to their weight.

For optimal effectiveness, take this antibiotic at evenly spaced intervals. To aid in remembering, take the medication at the same time(s) daily.

Continue taking this medication until you’ve completed the full prescribed amount, even if symptoms improve within a few days. Ceasing the medication prematurely may result in the infection recurring.

Inform your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.
