Frequently asked questions about cefdinir

What is cefdinir?

Cefdinir is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections in various areas of the body. Cefdinir is particularly effective as a treatment for antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria.

This includes infections such as:
- Pneumonia
- Bronchitis (bacterial infection of the bronchial tubes)
- Sinusitis (bacterial infection of the sinuses)
- Pharyngitis/ tonsillitis
- Impetigo and other bacterial skin infections


Cefdinir is an antibiotic, which means that it is ineffective against viral, parasitic, and fungal infections. This medication is prescribed to treat existing infections, and should not be used as a preventative measure against bacterial infections. Doing so can actually make you more resistant to antibiotic treatment.

What is cefdinir used to treat?

Cefdinir is an antibiotic, meaning that it is indicated for use against bacterial infections. Commonly prescribed as an oral tablet, cefdinir is primarily used as a treatment for mild to moderate bacterial infections.

This includes:
- Pneumonia
- Bronchitis
- Sinusitis
- Pharyngitis/ tonsillitis
- Skin infections

How does cefdinir work?

Cefdinir is classified as a cephalosporin antibiotic, meaning that it is indicated for use against bacterial infections in various areas of the body. These drugs work by killing harmful bacteria and preventing their growth. This dual-action treats existing infections while preventing them from spreading or worsening.

Because cefdinir is an antibiotic, it is ineffective against viral, parasitic, and fungal infections. In addition, this drug is used to treat existing infections. Using cefdinir as a preventative measure against infections can actually make your body resistant to the drug and increase your likelihood of developing one of the conditions listed above.

What are the common side effects of cefdinir?

Cefdinir has been shown to cause some mild side effects. If these adverse effects do not go away within a few days, talk to your health care provider.


Common side effects include:
- Nausea
- Vomiting
- Stomach pain
- Diarrhea
- Headache
- Discolored stool
- Vaginal itching


This is not a complete list of possible adverse effects.

If you experience an unexplained rash, swelling, difficulty breathing, or itchy skin while taking cefdinir, seek medical attention immediately. These are early signs of an allergic reaction, a potentially serious side effect of taking this medication.

Talk to your health care provider about any medication you are currently taking, or any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with before starting treatment with cefdinir.

What is the typical starting dose of cefdinir?

For most bacterial infections, cefdinir is supplied as an oral tablet or suspension (liquid). Specific dosage may vary between 300-600 mg, depending on the age of the patient and the severity of the infection. If you are given a 300 mg dose, cefdinir should be taken 2x a day (or every 12 hours). 600 mg doses are to be taken once daily.

The course of cefdinir treatment commonly lasts for 5-10 days. Do not discontinue the use of cefdinir unless instructed to do so by your doctor. Doing so can cause the bacterial infection to recur. Additionally, do not increase your daily dosage of cefdinir unless given a specific order by your doctor. Follow the full course of treatment and take the medication exactly as prescribed.
