Contraindications

OVERDOSE

In acute rodent toxicity studies, a single 5 g/kg oral dose produced no adverse effects.

The toxic symptoms following an overdose of beta-lactam antibiotics may include nausea, vomiting, epigastric distress, and diarrhea.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Cefpodoxime proxetil is contraindicated in patients with a known allergy to cefpodoxime or to the cephalosporin group of antibiotics.

This monograph has been modified to include the generic and brand name in many instances.
