How long do I have to wait before I am allowed to take Cefdinir?
I have taken erythromycin two hours ago. but that antibiotic was not really helping, so my doctor prescribed me Cefdinir. How long must I wait before I can take Cefdinir, or do I not have to wait at all. Will it interfere with the first antibiotic I was taking? (erythromycin) By the way I have a strep throat thats why I was prescribed theses, so please help! Can I take Cefdinir right away?

  I think you can take it right now because there are no interactions between the two drugs.

I recently began taking cefdinir and am wondering what the HARMLESS side effects are?
I just began taking cefdinir for strep throat. my doctor is aware of my amoxocillin allergy but he gave it to me anyway. are there any side effects to this medication? 300 milligrams twice daily. thanks!

  First this is not in the penicillin family, so should have absolutely no impact on your existing allergy. This is a broad spectrum antibiotic in the cephalsporin family -- it is a potent and effective antibiotic.

The side effect profile is pretty standard with most antibiotics and isn't extensive.

You could experience: diarrhea, nausea, headache, and/or abdominal pain.

Though you very likely will experience no side effects.

do cefdinir and floconazole cancel the effects of one another?

  No. Cefdinir is an antibiotic, floconazole is an antifungal. They treat different things and taking them together does not decrease the effects of either.

Is it bad to swallow only the powder in a cefdinir capsule?
First time using capsules. I opened it up and swallowed only the powder. Is it safe? Or will I have really bad things happen after doing that. D:

  Chances are you didn't do any damage -- it's just an antibiotic. The only issue I would guess at is that, had you not taken the powder "directly", the capsule would have not dissolved until it was in your stomach, releasing the medicine there and in your intestines... if the powder were a bit caustic it might cause some minor damage to your esophagus as it went down.

  Actually don't call a pharmacy or pharmacist as most would not give you a direct answer and question why you are asking this question in the first place.

What happened? Did the Omnicef truck drop a case on the street? - Go ask your doctor or try reading the label on the bottle if you acquired this bottle legitimately via prescription.

Can the Cefdinir capsules be broken and take the inside of the capsule by itself?
My daughter can not take pills and she broke the capsule in half taking the powder in the center only, I'm worried that this may not be good for her.

  It is not a time release capsule, so it is OK to take it apart. She should have mentioned this to the pharmacist before the prescription was filled. It is also available as an oral suspension.

  Ultram is an opiate. Opiates get you high. Its effects are similar to codeine.

I have developed a yeast infection while taking Cefdinir, should i stop taking the medicine?
My doctor is unavailable for me today. Yeast infections are a side effect of this medicine, but I don't know if I should cease use of the medicine.

  you should not stop any medication unless talking to your doctor first.
wait until tomorrow when the office open's, then call and ask.

you can always go to the drugstore or supermarket to get monistat (to clear the yeast infection)
