I was prescribed cefdinir for sinusitis and have taken 3 doses now. As of one day ago, I started coughing frequently. Has this happened to anyone else? I didn't have a cough before taking cefdinir so I find it strange that it's suddenly come up.
HI therewentthesun... Yes this is listed as a side effect but more on the rare but to talk to doctor if it occur maybe call and see if there are in saturday this is in the penicillin family of drugs much stronger have you taken Penicillin type drugs before... HERE IS THE SIDE EFFECT BUT IF THIS IS COMPOUNDED WITH HARD TO BREATH CALL THE DOCTOR RIGHT AWAY... best to take on a empty stomach, and no aluminmin base antacids 1 our prior or 2 hours after this medication and the same with iron..You should check with your doctor immediately if any of these side effects occur when taking cefdinir:
