Cefuroxime 500 mg

When recommending cefuroxime axetil (Ceftin®) for certain bacterial infections, your healthcare provider may prescribe a twice-daily dose of 500 mg. Cefuroxime dosing amounts will vary based on several factors, such as the type of infection you have, medical conditions you may have, and your age and weight.
Cefuroxime is available in the form of tablets and an oral suspension (liquid). The tablets and oral suspension are not equivalent on a mg-per-mg basis. For example, one cefuroxime 500 mg tablet is not equivalent to 500 mg of the oral suspension.
If the medication is not working as well as you expect, do not adjust the amount without talking to your healthcare provider first. In order to ensure your safety and an effective treatment process, it is important to take cefuroxime exactly as your healthcare provider recommends. Stopping this medication too soon may increase the risk of antibiotic resistance.
