FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: CEFTIN

User Comments:


For Sinusitis “I was in Urgent Care 4 days ago and diagnosed with a sinus infection. I was given Ceftin 500 mg. tablets to take 2 times a day. I’m going to take one after dinner tonight, and I honestly can say this stuff is not working for me at all. I’m okay for about 3 hours after taking it with breakfast, then my nose starts running, my head stuffs up, I get very cold and I have to go to bed propped up on 3 pillows trying to breathe. When I get up, my nose starts running again and my head gets all stuffed up again, and doesn’t clear up until about 8:30 pm. If I am like this tomorrow, I will be calling my primary care doctor about getting put on something else.”

For Sinusitis “I had a headache for 2 weeks straight and couldn’t figure out why so I finally broke down and went to the doctors yesterday! She prescribed me Ceftin and said I had a sinus infection. I took both pills yesterday and woke up today with no headache at all and feeling amazing. This pill really works so far!”

For Urinary Tract Infection “When I read all of the reviews I was kind of terrified to start Ceftin, but I had no reason to be! The only side effect I found for the first day was gas and bloating, but it definitely could’ve been unrelated. As long as you take this antibiotic with a meal (nothing crazy, doesn’t have to be huge) and take probiotics daily, you should be totally fine! I’ve been on it for 4 days and I feel great with no side effects. Tomorrow is my last day, so I’m hoping my UTI will be cleared out! My only complaint is that because I took the liquid, it definitely was not pleasant to swallow and I found the easiest way to make it tolerable was to mix it with a sweeter flavored drink, as the antibiotic is a bit gritty and bitter.”

For Lyme Disease “son of 3,5 years old has Lyme; received cefuroxime axetil 250 mg oral suspension 21 days. It was hard to find pharmacy that carries this. The pediatrician had to mediate. Our son did a great job taking the medicine, as we used a plastic, injection tof administer it to him. He did fine with that. However. On the bottle it said to shake well before use. The liquid was too thick for shaking. You had to just wait for the goo to come out of the narrow bottle. When the bottle was “empty” there was a thick layer at the bottom and around the sides. Even thicker than the rest. How can we tell if he got the right amount of medicine? Better to put susp into an open neck jar and stir each time. With Lyme you”re never sure if medication worked.”
