Reviews for Cefprozil

24RenAlexis January 1, 2020

“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.”

“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.”

“I took this medicine for a sinus infection and it did get rid of it as far as I know. however, nearing the end of my treatment, I developed literally THE WORST yeast infection ever. it hurts so bad, I can't be intimate with my boyfriend, it is beyond itchy, the discharge is absolutely ridiculous. I'm so mad”

Cefzil (cefprozil): “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): “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.”

“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.”

“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.”
