Omnicef uses and description

Sort by popularity
Omnicef - Used for: Treating mild to moderate infections caused by certain bacteria.

Omnicef is a cephalosporin antibiotic. It works by killing sensitive bacteria.

Omnicef is a third generation cephalosporin with a broad spectrum of activity against enteric gram-negative rods. Omnicef is stable in the presence of some, but not all, b-lactamase enzymes. As a result, many organisms resistant to penicillins and some cephalosporins are susceptible to cefdinir. Cephalosporins work the same way as penicillins: they interfere with the peptidoglycan synthesis of the bacterial wall by inhibiting the final transpeptidation needed for the cross-links. This effect is bactericidal.

Indication: For the treatment of the respiratory, skin, soft tissue, and ENT infections caused by H. influenzae (including b-lactamase producing strains), H. parainfluenzae (including b-lactamase producing strains), S. pneumoniae (penicillin-susceptible strains), S. pyogenes, S. aureus (including b-lactamase producing strains), and M. catarrhalis.
