Since i'm allergic to penicillin, I was prescribed cefazolin, but i'm terrified of needles. Can I take pills instead?

Since i'm allergic to penicillin, I was prescribed cefazolin, but i'm terrified of needles. Can I take pills instead?

Pen/cephalosporins : It depends . First of all, the first choice substitute antibiotic for a penicillin-allergic person is not a cephalosporin, especially a first-generation one like cephazolin. There is a small chance you will be allergic to the cephazolin, and giving it parenterally is much more dangerous than orally. The type of infection you have determines what antibiotics you can use. Ask your doctor for options. ...Read more
