Cefuroxime Axetil Information:

What is cefuroxime axetil?

Cefuroxime axetil is an antibiotic that belongs to the family of medications known as cephalosporins.  Cephalosporins are semi-synthetic beta lactam antibiotics, derived from the mold cephalosporium.  Cefuroxime axetil works by interfering with the bacterial cell wall synthesis.  

How do I take cefuroxime axetil?

Cefuroxime axetil can be taken in tablet, capsule or oral suspension (liquid) form. Do not crush or chew the tablets/capsules.  Unlike many antibiotics, this medicine is gets into the blood stream more efficiently when it is taken with food. Cefuroxime axetil is available in 125mg, 250mg and 500mg doses.  For adults the recommended dosage is 250mg-500mg twice daily.  Certain conditions such as gonorrhea may require a single 1,000mg dose.  Dosage is based on medical condition and response to therapy.  Antibiotics work best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level, because of this you should take this drug at evenly spaced intervals.  Tablets and oral cefuroxime axetil will require different doses.

Before taking cefuroxime axetil, tell your doctor if:

  • You are allergic to cefuroxime axetil, or penicillin.
  • You are pregnant, or nursing.
  • You have stomach or bowel problems, especially colitis. 
  • You use blood thinners (e.g., warfarin)

There may be interaction with herbal medications and supplements.  Antacids may reduce the absorption (effectiveness) of cefuroxime axetil.

What are the possible side effects of taking cefuroxime axetil?

Cefuroxime axetil in general does not have substantial side effects.  Any side effects typically will only last a short time. Side effects include: diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, headache, rash, hives, vaginitis and mouth ulcers.  An allergic reaction could produce anemia or seizures.  

What if I forget to take a dose of cefuroxime axetil?

If you forgot to take a dose of cefuroxime axetil, take it as soon as you remember and monitor your blood sugar levels. If it’s almost time for your next dose, take the next dose but do not take a double dose to compensate for the missed one.  Take the medication until the full prescribed amount has been used, even if symptoms have stopped.  

How do I store cefuroxime axetil?

Cefuroxime axetil tablets should be stored between 36 and 86 degrees F.  The cefuroxime axetil oral suspension form should be stored in a refrigerator between 36-46 degrees F.
