For Otitis Media: "This antibiotic doesn't work as quickly as penicillin based medications do. I'm on my 5th dose and I still have a stuffy nose sore throat however my ear is no longer hurting but it is still clogged. I'm not sure if this just takes longer to work or if it's not working at all however I am extremely fatigued and I don't know if it's because of the cold or from the medication."

For Sinusitis: "I took this twice a day for over a week. I don't notice any improvement. In the past when I have taken Amoxicillin or Augmentin I had relief in 3 days every time I had one of these irritating sinus infections."

For Bronchitis: "Been taking this on and off for the last few years. Always within a few days of being on it twice daily. I feel some relief. Never any side effects. Best antibiotic I've taken."

For Sinusitis: "After 5 days I feel horrible on this medication. As if I didn't feel bad enough with the sinus infection, now I have horrible - horrible! - diarrhea, stomach ache, and cramps. Worst antibiotic I have ever been on!"

For Sinusitis: "I was prescribed cefprozil 5 days ago and I am getting worse. I have suffered for years with sinus infections and can say that this is the most ineffective antiobitic I have ever been prescribed as with others there has always been a slight to moderate improvement. Will be returning to the doctor today to request a real solution."

Cefzil (cefprozil) for Sinusitis: "Terrible medicine. I had diarrhea with dehydration and ended up with severe dry mouth at night. I took it for sinus for over a month and need to take for 70 days but it killed stomach already. I used to drink lot of water but all useless with this medicine. I think I have to stop it."

For Sinusitis: "I am on my 5th day of taking 500 mg per day and I still have a bad sinus infection and plugged ears. It doesn't seem to be helping me at all. It feels like it is getting worse."

Cefzil (cefprozil) for Tonsillitis/Pharyngitis: "It was prescribed to treat a bad sore throat. It didn't help. After taking it not only did the sore throat remain, but I developed vaginitis and diarrhea that took me long to cure. Be careful if your immune system is sensitive to antibiotics and make sure you also take an effective probiotic while on this."

Cefzil (cefprozil) for Bladder Infection: "I was given this for UTI and Sinusitis at the same time! After 2 doses I felt a little relief but woke up in the middle of the night itching on the palms of my hands, bottoms of my feet and knees and elbows! My hands were also swelling after the 4 th dose so I quit taking it. Still had the infection and pain after 4 doses!"

Cefzil (cefprozil) for Sinusitis: "The only thing that has kicked each of the many sinus infections I've had over the years, including the one I picked up in Maui and had to fly home with--ended up with a double ear and sinus infection. Amoxicillin just won't do it for me."

For Otitis Media: "Prescribed to 2 yr old son since he is allergic to amoxicillin (broke out in head to toe rash). Day 2 of this medicine and a rash that looked like the one with amoxicillian started to show on his body and face. Gave Benadryl and within 2 hrs rash seemed to mostly disappear. Will see his doctor tomorrow for assessment and possible medication change."

For Otitis Media: "Giving medicine to my one year old. She has a bad diaper rash, diarrhea, and mild abdominal rash since day 2 of this medication. Not best for young children or infants in my opinion...last resort. This has to work though since the first antibiotic failed."

For Bladder Infection: "I'm on my 5th day of this medication and I've had no side effects like skin rash or vaginal itching as I see some do but I have noticed my urine smells really bad, not sure why. It started after the 2nd and 3rd day of medication but overall feeling better."

Cefzil (cefprozil) for Pneumonia: "I love this medication. It helped me fight my pneumonia. As well, it has helped me with tonsil/throat infections. It is my medication of choice. My kids take it as well when the doctor feels it is appropriate to the situation. No side effects in our family."
