Cefzil, also known as cefprozil, is effective against a wide range of bacterial infections. It belongs to the cephalosporin class of antibiotics. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. Cefzil is only effective against bacterial infections and will not work for viral infections such as the common cold or flu. Overuse or unnecessary use of antibiotics like Cefzil can lead to decreased effectiveness and antibiotic resistance

  • Try to take Cefzil at the same time(s) every day.
