About Ceftin Medications

Application of Ceftin:

Ceftin is prescribed for the treatment of various bacterial infections. It is categorized as a cephalosporin antibiotic that functions to inhibit bacterial growth. Sumycin is effective solely against bacterial infections and is not suitable for viral infections like the common cold or flu. Misuse or overuse of any antibiotic can result in reduced effectiveness.

Usage Instructions:

Ceftin is typically taken orally twice a day, following your doctor's recommendations. For better absorption and to minimize stomach discomfort, it is advisable to consume Ceftin with food.

Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. Swallow the tablets whole. Do not crush or chew as the tablets have a strong bitter taste. Use ceftin liquid suspension if tablets are difficult to swallow. Antibiotics work best when the amount of medicine in the body is maintained at a constant level. Therefore, take this medicine at regular intervals. Continue taking ceftin until the full prescribed dose is finished, even if symptoms go away after a few days.

If you stop taking the medicine too early, it may cause bacteria to continue to grow, which may lead to a recurrence of the infection. Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.


Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or abdominal pain may occur. Dizziness and drowsiness may occur less frequently, especially at higher doses. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist immediately. Remember that your doctor has prescribed Ceftin because he or she believes that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects.

The majority of individuals using ceftin experience mild side effects. Notify your doctor promptly if you experience any of these uncommon yet severe side effects: unusual fatigue or weakness. Inform your doctor immediately if any of these uncommon but highly severe side effects manifest: the yellowing of the skin or eyes, intense stomach or abdominal pain, consistent nausea or vomiting, dark urine, alterations in urine output, indications of a new infection (like fever or persistent sore throat), easy bruising, uncontrolled movements, chest discomfort, alterations in mental state or mood (like confusion).

Rarely, ceftin can lead to a serious intestinal condition called Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea, caused by a resistant bacteria. This condition could arise during treatment or even weeks to months after it has ended. It is important not to take anti-diarrhea medications or narcotic pain relievers if experiencing certain symptoms, as these products could exacerbate them. Notify your doctor right away if you experience persistent diarrhea, abdominal pain, blood/mucus in stool. Prolonged or repeated use of ceftin may lead to oral thrush or a new yeast infection in the mouth or vagina.

Please get in touch with your doctor if you observe any white patches in your mouth, shift in vaginal discharge, or any other new symptoms. While a severe allergic reaction to Sumycin is rare, seek urgent medical help if it happens. Signs of a serious allergic reaction can consist of a rash, itching/swelling (particularly of the face/tongue/throat), intense dizziness, and breathing difficulties. This is not an exhaustive catalogue of potential side effects. Should you experience any other effects that are not mentioned here, reach out to your doctor or pharmacist.
