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).

Cough: If you are ever concerned about potential drug interaction, the time to ask the question is before you mix the drugs, not after.
