Re: Question re: Antibiotic med., "Cefuroxime Axetil" for Sinus Congestion

Cefuroxime Axetil (Ceftin) is a second generation cephalosporin and many people who take it have diarrhea. The best way to minimize the diarrhea is to take a probiotic supplement to help restore some of the good bacteria in your digestive tract.

In particular, a probiotic called Saccharomyces Boulardii (one brand name is Florastor) has been studied and shows good results for reducing antibiotic-associated diarrhea.
