suzzi Says:

Is this medication related to Cephalexin? I am allergic to Cefzil as it causes itching on my tongue, gums and a loss of voice.

This medication contains the active ingredient Cefprozil and yes, it is warned against being used in people that are allergic to Cephalosporin class antibiotics, such as Cephalexin.

Have you contacted your doctor about the problem?

There are other antibiotic options available, so you should contact them to see what else might be safe for you to use.

I can't remember which antibiotic gave me gut-wrenching stomach pain as if I had rocks in my intestines. Now I'm wondering if the antibiotic (Cefzil) or the bacterial infection is causing this? Which would it most likely be?
