Vantin 100 Mg

If you have a bacterial infection, your healthcare provider may recommend 100 mg of Vantin® (cefpodoxime proxetil) taken twice daily. This prescription medicine comes in the form of tablets or an oral suspension (liquid). Your specific dosage, however, will depend on the type and severity of your infection, among other factors.
 
Vantin is only available in generic form, as the brand-name version is no longer made. The forms and strengths that are available include the following:
 
  • Cefpodoxime 100 mg tablets
  • Cefpodoxime 200 mg tablets
  • Cefpodoxime 50 mg per 5 mL for oral suspension
  • Cefpodoxime 100 mg per 5 mL for oral suspension.
 
As a type of cephalosporin antibiotic, Vantin works by stopping bacteria from making cell walls, which eventually causes the bacteria to die. Side effects may include diarrhea, nausea, and yeast infections.
