Cold Home > Ceftin


Ceftin tablets and unmixed powder for oral suspension can be stored at room temperature. However, once your pharmacist mixes the oral suspension, it must be stored in the refrigerator (not frozen). Once mixed, the oral suspension is good for only 10 days.

Available Strengths

This medication comes in the following strengths and forms:
  • Ceftin 250 mg tablets
  • Ceftin 500 mg tablets
  • Ceftin 125 mg per 5 mL (per teaspoonful) for oral suspension
  • Ceftin 250 mg per 5 mL (per teaspoonful) for oral suspension.
The tablets and oral suspension are not equivalent on a mg-per-mg basis. For example, one Ceftin 500 mg tablet is not equivalent to 500 mg of the oral suspension. Your healthcare provider should take this into account when recommending a particular dosage.
