      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.
