10 year old has strep and started cefdinir at noon today. I have 3 other children, including a 5 week old. What are the chances everyone will get it?

10 year old has strep and started cefdinir at noon today. I have 3 other children, including a 5 week old. What are the chances everyone will get it?

Unlikely for all: Cited attack rates within families range from a high of 1/4 to a low of 1/32. The 5 wk old would never be expected to get any febrile illness but should go in immediately if it did, not because of strep A but from the possibility of it being birth related germs. It is certainly worth monitoring of all. The infected kid will not be contagious after a day or so on meds. ...Read more

I am taking Cefdinir 300mg twice a day. Can I have a glass of wine with my dinner?

Yes - no problem: There should not be any serious interaction with this antibiotic (a cephalosporin) and a glass of wine. I would stop at one glass though, because your body is under some kind of 'attack' (the reason for the antibiotics) -- so you don't want to overload yourself. Alcohol is actually a toxin, although we don't think of it that way. Hope you can go to bed early to help yourself recover. ...Read more

My baby taking omnicef (cefdinir) she spit some out should I give her a littlemore?

Spitting rule: If they spit it up within the first few minutes you can repeat a full dose. If it sits for 5-30min, no more than half. If >30 I would't give any. It is often good to wait an hour or two & be sure the kid has kept down something else for a good while before attempting to re-dose, or you'll just loose another dose. ...Read more

Is the antibiotic still good? I accidentally refridgerated cefdinir for <24hrs. We removed it from the refridgerator when we realized the error.

That: That should not be a problem at all. You can check with the pharmacist to be sure, but in my opinion that will not affect it's effectiveness of that antibiotic. Note: it may have a slightly thicker texture, but that won't be a problem. ...Read more

8mo vomited due to coughing 10-15 minutes, maybe less, after taking her 2 ml of Cefdinir. Should I repeat her dosage or just add new day at the end?

Best to redose: Because of the way cefdinir works and because it is not known to be very toxic, it would be best to redose. Either way, be sure to involve the prescribing doctor as soon as possible. Depending on the type and severity of infection, s/he may decide to add additional doses/days of therapy. ...Read more

I'm finishing up 10 days of Cefdinir for acute bronchitis but am STILL coughing. This is about 6 weeks of coughing. No mucus now. Should I worry?

I'm finishing up 10 days of Cefdinir for acute bronchitis but am STILL coughing. This is about 6 weeks of coughing. No mucus now. Should I worry?

Post-viral cough?: Cough often lasts many weeks after a viral cold or bronchitis that starts the problem. True personal story: I had a cold in April and only now, almost 3 months, my cough is finally fading away. If a smoker, you must stop. Ask your doc whether you need evaluation for underlying problem like asthma, maybe chest xray, and/or trying a bronchodilator or steroid inhaler. But probably nothing serious. ...Read more

Cefdinir to 1 yr old. I filled her used syringe but did not get enough in. I pushed it back in bottle and refilled it again. Does it make med. Go bad??

Cefdinir to 1 yr old. I filled her used syringe but did not get enough in. I pushed it back in bottle and refilled it again. Does it make med. Go bad??

Medication? S: Unless you tried to actually give the dose - unlikely especially if you kept the syringe in the bottle and drew up more med. However if the baby's mouth contacted the syringe - it might be an issue but just keep it refrigerated and once the course of treatment completes simply discard the left over medication. Rinsing the syringe after use in running water helps clean it. ...Read more
