Hello Riska,


Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com.


Cefadroxil is a type of antibiotic drug that works to kill bacteria and inhibit bacterial growth. Cefadroxil must be consumed until it runs out, because if it is not consumed it will run out making bacteria become resistant to the antibiotic drug Cefadroxil. Drugs will be better if taken at the same time every day.


Cefadroxil which is used for the treatment of respiratory infections using doses 2 times a day and consumed for 10 days. If your child takes the drug cefadroxil for 10 days, then adapt continues until the tenth day, but if it is already on the 10th day, cefadroxil does not need to be re-consumed. Because it can cause side effects: diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, stomach ache, and fever.


If after consuming cefadroxil there are complaints such as the side effects mentioned, then you can take your child to the doctor.


May be useful. Always Healthy 😊
