I am taking a pill with A34 marked on it - Ceftin generic. It seems to disintegrate in my mouth and tastes horrible!!! I'm afraid that the binder is not working and that it will not release over a 12 hour period as it should. Can anybody confirm this or help me understand it?

Just because you take a pill every 12 hours does not mean it is a time released tablet.

Did the prescription or bottle specifically say it was time released and warn you not to crush or chew it? Because, if it didn't then it isn't and I am not away of a there being a time released formulation of Ceftin on the market.

When pills are regular release formulations and they are not coated, then it is normal to have it start dissolving, as soon as saliva or liquid hits it.

To avoid this, when you take it, you should place it as far back in your mouth, or the top of your throat as possible and swallow it with liquid immediately.
