Cefprozil (Cefzil)

Cefprozil is an antibiotic that is used to treat various bacterial infections. It belongs to the class of drugs known as cephalosporins, which are related to penicillin in terms of their structure and function.

Cephalosporins are categorized into different generations, and cefprozil is often classified as a second-generation cephalosporin. This classification is based on the antibiotic’s spectrum of antimicrobial activity.

Cephalosporins, including cefprozil, are known for their broad-spectrum antibiotic capabilities, which means they can be used for both gram-positive and gram-negative bacterial infections.

With each successive generation of cephalosporins, there is an expansion in the spectrum of antimicrobial activity. This means that later generations of cephalosporins are able to treat a wider variety of bacterial infections, including those resistant to earlier generations.

Some common infections that may be treated with cefprozil include soft tissue and skin infections, and respiratory tract infections such as pneumonia, bronchitis, and sinusitis.

This antibiotic works by interfering with the synthesis of bacterial cell walls, which leads to the weakening and eventual death of the bacteria.

Antibiotics such as cefprozil are only effective against bacterial infections, and should not be used to treat viral infections such as the common cold or flu. In fact, overuse of antibiotics can lead to the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which can cause serious health problems.

Cefprozil is available in both oral tablet and suspension forms.

In the United States, cefprozil is available under the following brand names:

  • Cefzil

Common side effects associated with cefprozil may include:

  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Stomach pain
  • Dizziness
  • Vaginal itching
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Diaper rash

More serious side effects which should be reported to your healthcare provider immediately may include:

  • Rash
  • Hives
  • Itching
  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • Severe stomach pain 
  • Severe or ongoing diarrhea (may be bloody or watery)
  • Unusual bleeding and/ or easy bruising
  • Seizures
  • Swelling of the face, throat, tongue, lips, or eyes

The above lists of possible side effects associated with cefprozil are not exhaustive and other side effects may occur. If you experience any severe or persistent side effects while taking cefprozil, it is important to contact your healthcare provider right away.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cefprozil

What Is Cefprozil Used to Treat?

Cefprozil is used to treat a variety of bacterial infections. Some of the common infections it may be used for include:

  • Respiratory Tract Infections: Such as pneumonia, bronchitis, and throat infections (like tonsillitis and pharyngitis).
  • Skin and Skin Structure Infections: Treating infections like cellulitis, impetigo, and skin abscesses.
  • Otitis Media: Commonly used in treating middle ear infections, particularly in children.
  • Sinusitis: Effective in treating bacterial sinus infections.

In some cases, it may also be used to treat urinary tract infections (UTIs).

It is also important to note that the use of cefprozil should be based on susceptibility testing of the bacteria involved in the infection, as some bacteria may be resistant to this antibiotic.

How Does Cefprozil Work?

Cefprozil works like other cephalosporins and is centered around inhibiting bacterial cell wall synthesis. It achieves this by binding to Penicillin-Binding Proteins (PBPs) in the bacterial cell wall, which are crucial for cell wall synthesis and maintenance. This binding disrupts the production of peptidoglycan, a key component of the bacterial cell wall, leading to its weakening and eventual rupture. The result is a bactericidal effect, where cefprozil actively kills the bacteria.

What Are the Most Common Side Effects of Cefprozil?

Just like with most antibiotics the most common side effects associated with cefprozil include gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, diarrhea, stomach pain, and vomiting. For women, there may be vaginal symptoms such as itching and discharge. More serious side effects should be reported to a healthcare provider immediately.

What Is the Typical Starting Dose of Cefprozil?

The dosage of cefprozil varies depending on the type and severity of the infection being treated, as well as factors like age, weight, and overall health. It is important to follow your healthcare provider’s instructions for dosing and duration of treatment.

How to Take Cefprozil?

First of all, always take cefprozil exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider. Do not take more or less of the medication than instructed, and do not stop taking it early unless directed to do so by your doctor.

Cefprozil is available in both oral tablet and suspension forms. It can be taken with or without food. You should try to take it with food if you experience stomach upset.

If you are taking the suspension form, make sure to shake well before each use to ensure proper dosage. Use the measuring device that comes with this drug.

It is important to complete the full course of treatment even if you start feeling better, as stopping early can lead to incomplete treatment and

Do You Need a Prescription for Cefprozil?

Yes, cefprozil is an antibiotic, and like other antibiotics, it is not available over the counter in the United States. A prescription from a licensed healthcare provider is required to obtain this medication. This measure is in place to ensure antibiotics are used responsibly and effectively, aiming to combat antibiotic resistance by preventing unnecessary or incorrect use.
