Drug Description


Cefzil Suspension is a prescription medicine used to treat mild to moderate infections, including bronchitis, skin and ear infections, sinusitis, and tonsillitis caused by susceptible bacteria. 

As a cephalosporin antibiotic, Cefzil Suspension works by suppressing bacterial growth. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before taking Cefzil Suspension and with every prescription refill, read the accompanying medication guide and patient information leaflet carefully. For queries or concerns, do not hesitate to consult your doctor or pharmacist. 

The dosage of Cefzil Suspension is individualized according to the patient’s medical condition and response to treatment, taking into account the weight of the children. 

Typically, this antibiotic is taken every 12 or 24 hours, with or without food, for a duration of 10 days or as directed by a doctor.  

Before each dose, thoroughly shake the bottle. To ensure precise dosing, measure the liquid using a medicine cup or spoon, not a household spoon. 

To achieve optimal results, take Cefzil Suspension at regular intervals, preferably around the same time(s) daily. 

Complete the entire prescribed course of this antibiotic, even if symptoms improve within a few days. Discontinuing it prematurely could permit bacterial growth, potentially leading to a recurrence of the infection. 

Side Effects 

Listed below are the potential adverse effects of Cefzil Suspension. Notify your doctor promptly if any of these symptoms persist or get worse. 

Common Side Effects 

  • Upset stomach 
  • Diarrhea 

Serious Side Effects 

  • Seizures 
  • Vaginal itching or discharge 

Notify your doctor promptly if any of the serious side effects listed above occur. 

In rare cases, a severe condition known as C. diff-associated diarrhea (CDAD) may occur, leading to potentially life-threatening colitis. CDAD can develop during or several months after treatment with Cefzil Suspension. Contact your doctor immediately if you experience stomach pain, cramps, or extremely loose, watery, or bloody stools. Consult your doctor before attempting to treat diarrhea. 

Allergic Reactions 

In rare cases, Cefzil Suspension may trigger a severe allergic response. Seek immediate medical assistance if you notice any indications of an allergic reaction, such as: 

  • Skin rash, hives, itchiness, inflammation, blistering, or peeling.  
  • Breathing difficulties 
  • Chest or throat tightness 
  • Swallowing or speaking problems 
  • Hoarseness 
  • Swelling of the mouth or face 

This list does not cover all side effects of Cefzil Suspension. Inform your doctor if other side effects arise. 


Before starting treatment with Cefzil Suspension, inform your doctor if you have any known allergies, particularly to: 

  • Cefprozil 
  • Penicillin    
  • Other cephalosporin antibiotics (e.g., cephalexin) 
  • To any of the inactive components of this antibiotic 

To ensure Cefzil Suspension is safe for you, disclose to your doctor your medical background, especially if you have a history of kidney disease or colitis. 

To mitigate the chance of drug interaction with Cefzil Suspension, disclose all current and recent use of medications, including prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs, vitamins, and herbal supplements, to your healthcare providers. 

Cefzil Suspension contains aspartame. If you have phenylketonuria (PKU) or any other condition requiring limited aspartame (or phenylalanine) intake, consult your healthcare provider for guidance on using this medication safely. 

Cefzil Suspension can potentially disrupt specific lab tests (diabetic urine and blood glucose tests), leading to inaccurate results. Inform laboratory personnel and all healthcare providers about your use of this antibiotic. 

The use of Cefzil Suspension may diminish the effectiveness of live bacterial vaccines like the typhoid vaccine. Inform your healthcare provider about your use of this antibiotic before receiving any immunizations or vaccinations. 

Inform your doctor of your pregnancy status or any plans to become pregnant and discuss the advantages and potential risks associated with using Cefzil Suspension during pregnancy. 

Cefprozil is excreted in breast milk. Before breastfeeding, consult your doctor to assess the benefits and risks for your child.
