Additional Information

Once a medicine has been approved for marketing for a certain use, experience may show that it is also useful for other medical problems. Although these uses are not included in product labeling, cephalosporins are used in certain patients with the following medical conditions:

  • Amoxicillin-resistant sinusitis (treatment) - Cefaclor
  • Bacterial endocarditis (Prophylaxis) - Cefadroxil, cefazolin, and cephalexin
  • Melioidosis (treatment) - Ceftazidime


Products containing cefixime were withdrawn from the U.S. market by Wyeth in October 2002
