I am allergic to Ceclor (caused all-over hives when I was younger). I just went to an Urgent Care that Rx Augmentin and I had notified the MD about my allergies (also allergic to Sulfa). I've been looking at information about Augmentin, and it says to tell my Dr if I have had an allergy to cephalosporins like Ceclor, but it doesn't say why. I'm a little leery - is it safe to go ahead and take if?
Augmentin is a penicillin based antibiotic. Some people that are allergic to sulfa drugs seem to also be allergic to pennicillians, but not always.If you told them about your drug allergies you should be safe, but I am giving you a link about augmentin for you to read for yourself. Best wishes & hope you get to feeling better...
People that are allergic to ~cillins are often allergic to cephalosporins and since you are allergic to Ceclor (which is a cephalosporin), you may also be allergic to Augmentin, which contains amoxicillin. Neither contain sulfa drugs.
