    My five-year-old son was prescribed this drug for double ear infections after another medication did not work. He broke out in hives all over. He has severe food allergies and this reaction was similar. It was very scary. The hives improved after a dose of Benadryl.

    This drug made me very emotional and had a very difficult time, lots of mood swings, anger and crying, mostly. Would never take it again.

    Son prescribed omnicef suspension for upper respiratory infection (ears, sinuses, etc). Took for ten days, got better. Two days later broke out in hives so badly he could barely bend his legs. Huge wheals over every joint on his body. Also bilirubin in urine. Three day steroid burst took care of it, but it was very scary.
