Comment:
I was prescribed Cefdinir for slight sinus infection. Intense Diarrhea started after taking 2 capsules. Dr. said to eat Yogart and take probiotics. I ate yogart 3 times a day for 4 days with probiotics and the diarrhea did not get better. Note on medicine bottle states diarrhea may occur weeks to months after taking drug. Other comments were very helpful.

This drug immediately caused explosive diarrhea with weakness. I couldn't tolerate this side effect, so I stopped it after 3 days. Six days later I still have diarrhea and weakness and wonder how long it takes for this stop or if it will on its own. This drug is deadly and should be taken off the market.

Comment:
I was prescribed a twice daily 300 mg dose of this medicine for a severe sinus infection and ear infection. I was also given a steroid to compliment this treatment. I was careful to follow all instructions from my pharmacist especially making sure that I took the medicine with yogurt to help with the stomach issues. I had no problems with the meds the first 4 days but beginning on the 5th day I ... Show Full Comment

Since I already have pvc's I didn't stress to much over it at first, but t ... Show Full Comment
