I'm perscribed 500mg of cefuroxime twice daily for ten days. Is it dangerous to take an extra dose a day to shorten the treatment?
No, not a good idea. Ceftin is only prescribed twice a day. If you take more than what is recommended you could experience toxicity symptoms and / or more severe side effects. You should follow the instructions of your doctor. This way you will the get the most out of your medicine.
