Cefadroxil Drug Information

Drug Information: Cefadroxil is a broad-spectrum antibiotic, meaning that it is active against a wide range of bacteria. It is used to treat bacterial infections such as urinary tract infections, chest and throat infections, ear infections and skin infections. Cefadroxil kills the infection by killing the bacterium that causes the infection.

Some people who are allergic to penicillin antibiotics may not be able to take cephadroxil; So if you are allergic to antibiotics, talk to your doctor.
