Use in combination with other drugs
- Ceftinex antiacids (drugs that reduce excessive acidity of the stomach) and antiacids reduce the absorption of ceftinirin. If antiacids are to be used during Cefdinir treatment, Ceftinex should be taken at least 2 hours before or after the use of antiacids.
- Probenesid, which is also used to treat gout (drip disease), prolongs the excretion time of Ceftinex from the kidneys, causing an increase in blood density. If you are taking this drug, please inform your doctor.
- Iron-containing drugs and foods reduce the absorption of Ceftinex. If iron-containing drugs are to be used during Ceftinex treatment, it should be at least 2 hours between both applications. Especially when used in combination with iron-containing drugs or foods, the color of feces may be red (This color change is considered normal).

The truth is that when we’re sick, or worried about getting sick, the internet won’t help.
According to Wikipedia, cyberchondria is a mental disorder consisting in the desire to independently make a diagnosis based on the symptoms of diseases described on Internet sites.
Why you can't look for symptoms on the Internet
If diagnoses could be made simply from a textbook or an article on a website, we would all be doctors and treat ourselves. Nothing can replace the experience and knowledge of specially trained people. As in any field, in medicine there are unscrupulous specialists, differences of opinion, inaccurate diagnoses and incorrect test results.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES PLEASE DO NOT USE THE INTERNET TO DIAGNOSE ANY KIND OF HEALTH-RELATED PROBLEMS OR DISEASES!
