Cefadroxil is used for treating infections caused by certain bacteria. Cefadroxil is a cephalosporin antibiotic. It works by interfering with the bacteria's cell wall formation. This weakens the cell wall, causing it to rupture, resulting in death of the bacteria.
Use Cefadroxil as directed by your doctor.
- Take Cefadroxil by mouth with or without food. If stomach upset occurs, take with food to reduce stomach irritation.
- To clear up your infection completely, take Cefadroxil for the full course of treatment. Keep taking it even if you feel better in a few days.
- If you miss a dose of Cefadroxil, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.
Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Cefadroxil.
Store Cefadroxil at room temperature, between 59 and 86 degrees F (15 and 30 degrees C). Store away from heat, moisture, and light. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep Cefadroxil out of the reach of children and away from pets.
