What should I avoid while taking cefdinir?
Antibiotic medicines can cause diarrhea, which may be a sign of a new infection. If you have diarrhea that is watery or bloody, stop taking cefdinir and call your doctor. Do not use anti-diarrhea medicine unless your doctor tells you to.
Avoid using antacids or mineral supplements that contain iron within 2 hours before or after taking cefdinir. Antacids or iron can make it harder for your body to absorb cefdinir. This does not include baby formula fortified with iron.
Taking cefdinir with products that contain iron may cause your stools (bowel movements) to appear red in color. If this discoloration looks like blood in your stools, call your doctor.
