Is omnicef (cefdinir) good for treatment of kidney infection?

Not my first choice. Uti's or kidney infections require meds that concentrate in the kidneys or bladder. I like using Bactrim or Cipro (ciprofloxacin) as they are generic and effective. Omnicef taste good, but it is usually not covered.

Evaluate further. You have bloody urine & a kidney infection which has not responded to antibiotics. Did you have a urine culture? You may have a kidney stone or other complicating factor preventing cure. Repeat Urinalysis with microscopic exam and urine culture 2 days after finishing Macrobid. Then consider CT scan of abdomen & pelvis. Your doctor can help. Consult me on Health Tap if you want to discuss more. Read more...

Will omnicef work on kidney infection? Was switched to omnicef from bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) ds because of rash and shaking.

Probably OK, but... Bad luck with the allergic reactions. Antibiotic effectiveness for any infection depends on the bacteria causing it and which antibiotics are active against it. If you had a positive urine culture that was tested and found susceptible to cefdinir (Omnicef®), it will work well. If such testing wasn't done, you'll have to wait and see how it works. Discuss with the doc who prescribed it. Good luck! Read more...
