Single 5000 mg/kg oral doses of cefprozil caused no mortality or signs of toxicity in adult, weanling, or neonatal rats, or adult mice. A single oral dose of 3000 mg/kg caused diarrhea and loss of appetite in cynomolgus monkeys, but no mortality.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

CEFZIL (cefprozil) is contraindicated in patients with known allergy to the cephalosporin class of antibiotics.
