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

What will happen if you take one cefprozil (cefzil) and you are allergic?

It depends: Are you allergic to cepfrozil? If you are, it depends on what kind of a reaction you had in the past. If it was a late small rash, another exposure may be just a somewhat worse rash. If you had a severe allergic reaction, the next may be life-threatening. Without knowing what kind of a reaction you had, I can't be more specific. ...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

I am out of the country and I got bacterial vaginitis. Will cefprozil 500 mg cure it?

No, don't use it: Cefprozil is exactly the wrong kind of antibiotic. It won't work and could make BV worse. It might improve symptoms briefly, but then your BV may be even harder than usual to treat. If you've had BV before and same symptoms, try to get metronidazole 500 mg twice daily x 7 days or tinidazole 1 g daily x 5 days (more $). Pharmacists in European countries often will dispense prescription antibiotics. ...Read more

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

What can I do if I had an allergic to cefzil; prescribed penicillin; early period?

Generally ok: I think what you are asking is if you had an allergic reaction to one of these is it safe to take the other. It turns out that although cephalosporins like Cefzil (cefprozil) are related to penicillins the evidence for cross reactivity was inadequately substantiated. If you had a very severe reaction you could be skin tested for allergy to penicillin. ...Read more
