What's the question?: If a woman has a bladder infection (typical UTI or urinary tract infection) that involves the bladder and has not spread to the kidneys, then taking oral antibiotics is the usual treatment. The patient should be feeling better by the next day, but does need to finish the course of treatment. If a urine culture was sent to the lab, the doctor or his staff will be able to see what the cause was. ...Read more
That depends....: Ceftin (cefuroxime axetil) is a 2nd generation cephalosporin antibiotic (there are 4 generations now). It is commonly given for infections across the lungs, sinuses, gut, and skin. Mild or major, depends on perspective but overall i would say that antibiotics are over-prescribed. The key at this point is to finish the course you were given. ...Read more
Are either cefuroxime or novalgin sulfa based medications? If i'm allergic to amoxicillin would either of these cause problems?
I am taking Balzina for the birth control and cefuroxime for acne, do you think the acne medication will affect the blazina?
Should not: theoretically there is a concern of antibiotics effecting the effectiveness of birth control pills. However, several large studies have not found this issue except with rifampin. I would discuss the issue with your treating doctor. They may recommend a barrier method of birth control until you have finished your anabiotic. If your anabiotic is for chronic use, please speak with your doctor. Dr. R ...Read more
Is there a drug interaction for Ceftin (cefuroxime) and Omeprazole? I am on ceftin (cefuroxime) 2x daily and Omeprazole 40mg daily. Can they be taken together?
Med interactions: According to a drug interaction check, the absorption level of the Ceftin (cefuroxime) may be affected by lowered stomach acid which is what omeprazole does. It appears that any medication that lowers the acid would have this affect (for example, Zantac or Pepcid). This would reduce the effectiveness of the Ceftin (cefuroxime). You may want to discuss this with the doctor who prescribed the Ceftin (cefuroxime) or your pharmacist. ...Read more

Had a sinus/ear infection since 5/23. Was given azithromycin & augmentin, neither drug was effective. I am taking ceftin, (cefuroxime) is this more effective?
Sinusitis: Hello, you are being treated in an appropriate pathway. Personally, i recommend a quinolone antibiotic such as Levaquin (levofloxacin) or Avelox after failing the previous two antibiotics. I also add a steroid by mouth to this regimen. Allergy testing may be helpful. You have had ear infections as well. Finally a ct scan of your sinuses would help, especially if you fail another abx. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cefuroxime: different formulations of medications can last a different amount of time in the body. Other explanations can be that the prescriber wished to decrease the amount of drug you received each day. ...Read more
I have gained weight due to Cefuroxime Axetile Torfur and I need to lose it fast. I exercise and have diet control. But no result. I need to lose Fat.
Energy balance: Corticosteroids, most anti-depressants, some anti-psychotics, mood stabilizers & diabetes meds can cause weight gain but cefuroxine doesn't. Exercise is great for your health but must be combined with caloric restriction for weight loss. Start a diet diary and do a calorie count. Then decrease portion sizes and eliminate "empty calories" like sodas. I recommend THE DUKE DIET book for more info. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Some severe: Mostly stomach cramps and diarrhea for some people but people can have a severe allergic reaction, which causes breathing trouble and can even cause death, rarely seizures, a severe skin condition called toxic epidermal necrolysis and steven-johnson's syndrome. Most people do not have any trouble with it. I always recommend eating yogurt with an active culture to help the stomach issues. ...Read more
