Omnicef   they are an antibiotic... Just wondering if anyone has taken it or had any side effects from it. They gave it to me as a second round and  I have never taken  it before and admit that I am a bit uneasy with it. I dont like to take Tylenol when needed so it might just be my lack of liking to take meds.  Just thought I would see.

It is a cephalosporin.  It is in the same family as penicillin.  I am allergic to penicillin but omnicef works for me just fine.

It's one of the antibiotics they commonly use for babies. My daughter gets diarrhea from it, but overall very safe, well-tolerated, and loads of data on it. If you're going to have an antibiotic, I suppose it's a good choice.
