DRUG INTERACTIONS

CEFADROXIL drug label information in our database does not contain a dedicated section on drug interactions. Please check subsections of WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS as well as other sources.

OVERDOSAGE

A study of children under six years of age suggested that ingestion of less than 250 mg/ kg of cephalosporins is not associated with significant outcomes. No action is required other than general support and observation. For amounts greater than 250 mg/kg, induce gastric emptying.

In five anuric patients, it was demonstrated that an average of 63% of a 1 g oral dose is extracted from the body during a 6–8 hour hemodialysis session.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Cefadroxil monohydrate is contraindicated in patients with known allergy to the cephalosporin group of antibiotics.
