Druginformer Identified Side Effects: Mood altered, Irritability, Aggression

Posted By Stacy on August 1, 2018 @ 1:49 pm

My 21 month old daughter was put on this medication for recurring ear infection. After one dose in the evening, we noticed changes next morning. My predictable sweet normal daughter turned into an aggressive, mean inconsolable child. She has never acted this way. Only in this medication did we see this behavior. This side effect is reported frequently online by parents but it’s not listed in medications side effects warnings.

I'm allergic to penicillin but my ER Dr continued to push this drug.. I'm a 46yo male. While it did clear up my severe kidney infection in literally a day and a half, and I felt much better, on day 3 that I'm now I'm feeling the worst fatigue I've ever felt.. Extremely weak and feeling as though I could fall over. I also have this odd feeling where my eyes want to cross slightly. I've also had 2 nights of absolutely awful night sweats where I wake up several times and the sheets, pillow, my hair and body are absolutely soaked.. I have to put towls under me. I can't explain it. I've never experienced that before.. I'm quite worried hoping it's from cefdinir and not something else. And I'm only on day 3. 2 300mg pills a day.

I failed 2 flu tests and was given this antibiotic. My last day of taking it is tomorrow. I had to pick up fluconozale from my drug store because the antibiotic gave my skin a yeast infection. I had a mild fever and that's the only thing this antibiotic helped with. I became sick 2-3 days after interviewing at a medical center/hospital and am still sick 1 month later. Side effects: skin rash, tinea versicolor on both sides of my neck and chest, lightheadedness, headaches

Additional Drug Information


* Warning: The facts and figures contained in these reports are accurate to the best of our capability; however, our metrics are only meant to augment your medical knowledge, and should never be used as the sole basis for selecting a new medication. As with any medical decision, be sure to work with your doctor to ensure the best choices are made for your condition.

* About FAERS: The FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) is used by FDA for activities such as looking for new safety concerns that might be related to a marketed product, evaluating a manufacturer's compliance to reporting regulations and responding to outside requests for information. Reporting of adverse events is a voluntary process, and not every report is sent to FDA and entered into FAERS. The FAERS database may contain duplicate reports, the report quality is variable, and many factors may influence reporting (e.g., media attention, length of time a drug is marketed, market share). For these reasons, FAERS case reports cannot be used to calculate incidence or estimates of risk for a particular product or compare risks between products.
