Cefadroxil is a broad-spectrum cephalosporin-type antibiotic that fights many different types of bacterial infections.
Cefadroxil is indicated for the treatment of such bacterial infections as pharyngitis, tonsillitis, urinary tract infections. It is also prescribed to treat streptococcal tonsillitis, strep throat or skin, and reproductive tract infections.
Cefadroxil can be purchased in the forms of capsules and powder for oral suspension. It should be administered orally, with or without food but with a full glass of water. Take Cefadroxil during meals if stomach upset occurs.
There is a large number of high-quality generic Cefadroxil equivalents offered on the market alongside with the brand name called Duricef.
It’s very important to remember, that Cefadroxil treats only bacterial infections, but not viral, such as a sore throat or flu. Trying to use antibiotics for the treatment of viral infections may lead to harmful consequences.
