Cefadroxil fights bacteria in the body. Cefadroxil is used to treat many different types of bacterial infections such as bronchitis, tonsillitis, ear infections, skin infections, and urinary tract infections.
How to use
Use Cefadroxil as directed by your doctor.
Take Cefadroxil by mouth with or without food. If stomach upset occurs, take with food to reduce stomach irritation.
To clear up your infection completely, take Cefadroxil for the full course of treatment. Keep taking it even if you feel better in a few days.
Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Cefadroxil.
Drug Class and Mechanism
Cefadroxil is a cephalosporin antibiotic. It works by interfering with the bacteria's cell wall formation. This weakens the cell wall, causing it to rupture, resulting in death of the bacteria.
If you miss a dose of Cefadroxil, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.
Store Cefadroxil at room temperature, between 68 and 77 degrees F (20 and 25 degrees C). Store away from heat, moisture, and light. Keep Cefadroxil out of the reach of children and away from pets.
