American equivalent drug number for Zinnat (Ceftin)

Can anyone please give me the AE (american equivalent) number for "Zinnat" which is apparently the foreign name for "Ceftin" that was made by Glaxo Smith Kline? ## Please correct me if I'm wrong, but there's no such thing as an "American equivalent drug number" - at least to my knowledge.

NOTE: Ceftin contains the active ingredient Cefuroxime, an antibiotic which is available in America by prescription-only. I hope this helps! ## Hi David, according to my insurance compan...
