Omnicef (cefdinir) for Acne: As with all drugs, there are side effects: http://www.Drugs.Com/sfx/omnicef-side-effects.Html. There is also the danger of altering your normal body's bacterial flora and acquiring a second infection. Short term use and cycling off for 3 months may offer the best balance between the risks and benefits of any long term antibiotic use.
