What precautions should I take when taking Cefuroxime :

Alert your doctor if you have a history of allergic reactions (rash, breathlessness, swollen mouth or eyes) to similar antibiotics such as cefalexin, cefaclor, cefixime, ceftibuten or any other cephalosporin antibiotics. - Alert your doctor if you are allergic to penicillin antibiotics, for example, amoxicillin, ampicillin and cloxacillin. Penicillins are related to cephalosporins and if you are allergic to one, you may be allergic to the other too.

Can I take Cefuroxime with other medicines:

Do not take Cefuroxime together with antacids because antacids could reduce the effectiveness of the antibiotic. Antacids are not likely to relieve the stomach discomfort that Cefuroxime may cause. If you must take antacids, take between meals at least 2 hours before or 2 hours after you have taken Cefuroxime. Alert your doctor if you are taking warfarin or probenecid. Always inform your doctor and pharmacist if you are taking any other medicines, including herbal medicines and medicines that you buy without a prescription.
