In brief: Yes

Duricef (cefadroxil) is about three times more effective --three times less ikely to fail --in eradicating strep than penicillin.
This conclusion is based ona meta-analysis of 35 trials reportedby drs. Janet r. Casey and michael e. Pichichero from the university of rochester. (found this info on search for duricef). You are well covered.
