Active Ingredient History
Cefdinir is an extended-spectrum, semisynthetic cephalosporin, for oral administration. As with other cephalosporins, bactericidal activity of cefdinir results from inhibition of cell wall synthesis. Cefdinir is stable in the presence of some, but not all, β-lactamase enzymes. Cefdinir is indicated for the treatment of: Community-Acquired Pneumonia, Acute Exacerbations of Chronic Bronchitis, Acute Maxillary Sinusitis, Pharyngitis/Tonsillitis and Uncomplicated Skin and Skin Structure Infections. Side effects include diarrhea, vaginal infections or inflammation, nausea, headache, and abdominal pain. Concomitant administration of 300-mg cefdinir capsules with 30 mL Maalox® TC suspension reduces the rate (Cmax) and extent (AUC) of absorption by approximately 40%. As with other β-lactam antibiotics, probenecid inhibits the renal excretion of cefdinir. NCATS
