Ceftin 250 mg Tablets
If you have a certain type of bacterial infection (such as strep throat or an ear infection), your healthcare provider may recommend an oral medication called Ceftin® (cefuroxime axetil). It comes in tablet and oral suspension (liquid) form and is typically taken twice daily.
There are several factors that may affect your dosage of this medication, including the form of Ceftin used (tablets or liquid), other medical conditions you have, and your age and weight. It is important to note that the tablets and liquid are not equivalent on a mg-per-mg basis. For example, one Ceftin 250 mg tablet is not equivalent to 250 mg of the liquid.
Make sure to take Ceftin exactly how your healthcare provider recommends to ensure a safe, effective treatment process. Do not try to crush Ceftin tablets, as they have a very unpleasant bitter taste that lingers. Do not miss doses or stop taking this antibiotic earlier than your healthcare provider recommends, as bacterial resistance may develop.
