Is cefprozil safe to use 1 year after expiration date? I have some left from my last sinus infection.

Is cefprozil safe to use 1 year after expiration date? I have some left from my last sinus infection.

Not a good idea: Although most drugs may remain active even 2 yrs after the expiration date, it is not a good idea for you to treat yourself with an antibiotic prescribed for someone else. In addition, it is best to take a full course of the prescribed antibiotic and you would not have enough for another complete course if you only take the left-over.
You need to see your doctor first. ...Read more

It has been 14 days since my 7 mth old was prescribed this is it ok for him to take now? The cefprozil

Hard to say: Most liquid antibiotics are kept in dry powder form until they are prepared for use. Once the water is added, the potency can be assured for about 10-14 days if stored under refrigeration. If left in an air conditioned house potency fades after a week. Dry powder lasts months. If this was prepared 2 wks ago and never given, its potency cannot be assured. ...Read more

My 15 month is taking cefprozil 1 teaspoon by mouth 2 times a day his weight is 24.4 lbs. Is this the right dosage?

My 15 month is taking cefprozil 1 teaspoon by mouth 2 times a day his weight is 24.4 lbs. Is this the right dosage?

Just about: If he is taking the 125mg/5ml dose of the medication (should be on the bottle) then this dosage is very close. Technically it looks like it should be 6.6mL every 12 hours but 5ml is 1 teaspoon which is fairly close. Should still get the job done but if you want to increase to 6.5mL if you have a precise measuring spoon/cup you could do that as well but run it by your pediatrician. ...Read more
