Reviews for Cefprozil

For Sinusitis: “50/50 on if my sinusitis is ever affected, but for all of those taking it EATING YOGURT should be MANDATORY INFORMATION. This helps replace the good bacteria in your stomach, your vagina, and anywhere else your “flora” should be propagating. If you do this, add in the good bacteria to your body it leads to less (if any) stomach issues, diarrhea, yeast infections, etc.”

For Sinusitis: “Took cefprozil for 7 days to treat a sinus infection I had for 5 weeks. Not only did it not help at all, but it made me feel worse. The sinus pain and pressure in my face tripled to the point where I had to take constant OTC pain killers and put ice on my face.”

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.”

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.”

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 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 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 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 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 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.”

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.”
