Duricef Drug Information
Duricef is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. It belongs to a class of drugs known as cephalosporin antibiotics. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. This antibiotic treats only bacterial infections. It will not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.
How to Use Duricef
Take Duricef by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once or twice a day. You may take Duricef with food if stomach upset occurs. If you are using the liquid form of Duricef, shake the bottle well before each dose. Carefully measure the dose using a special measuring device/spoon. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose. The Dosage of Duricef is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. In children, the Dosage of Duricef is also based on weight. For the best effect, take this antibiotic at evenly spaced times. To help you remember, take Duricef at the same time(s) every day. Continue to take Duricef until the full prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may result in a return of the infection. Tell your doctor if your condition lasts or gets worse.
Before taking cefadroxil, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to penicillins or other cephalosporins; or if you have any other allergies. Duricef may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Duricef, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,kidney disease, intestinal disease (colitis). Cefadroxil may cause live bacterial vaccines (such as typhoid vaccine) to not work as well. Do not have any immunizations/vaccinations while using Duricef unless your doctor tells you to. The suspension may contain sugar. Caution is advised if you have diabetes or any other condition that requires you to limit/avoid sugar in your diet. Ask your doctor or pharmacist about using Duricef safely. Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). During pregnancy, Duricef should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. Duricef passes into breast milk. While there have been no reports of harm to nursing infants, consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
If you miss a dose of Duricef, use it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Use your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval.

This could result in pregnancy. If you use hormonal birth control, ask your doctor or pharmacist for more details.
