Description
Curator's Comment:: description was created based on several sources, including: http://www.rxlist.com/omnicef-drug.htm#I | https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/drugsatfda_docs/label/2008/050739s015,050749s021lbl.pdf | https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3255303

Cefdinir is an extended-spectrum, semisynthetic cephalosporin, for oral administration. As with other cephalosporins, bactericidal activity of cefdinir results from inhibition of cell wall synthesis. Cefdinir is stable in the presence of some, but not all, β-lactamase enzymes. Cefdinir is indicated for the treatment of: Community-Acquired Pneumonia, Acute Exacerbations of Chronic Bronchitis, Acute Maxillary Sinusitis, Pharyngitis/Tonsillitis and Uncomplicated Skin and Skin Structure Infections. Side effects include diarrhea, vaginal infections or inflammation, nausea, headache, and abdominal pain. Concomitant administration of 300-mg cefdinir capsules with 30 mL Maalox® TC suspension reduces the rate (Cmax) and extent (AUC) of absorption by approximately 40%. As with other β-lactam antibiotics, probenecid inhibits the renal excretion of cefdinir.

CNS Activity

Curator's Comment:: Cefdinir has minimal penetration across the blood-brain barrier and would not be considered therapeutic for CNS infections.

Approved Use

To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of cefdinir and other antibacterial drugs, cefdinir should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria. When culture and susceptibility information are available, they should be considered in selecting or modifying antibacterial therapy. In the absence of such data, local epidemiology and susceptibility patterns may contribute to the empiric selection of therapy. Cefdinir for oral suspension is indicated for the treatment of patients with mild to moderate infections caused by susceptible strains of the designated microorganisms in the conditions listed below. Adults and Adolescents Community-Acquired Pneumonia caused by Haemophilus influenzae (including β-lactamase producing strains), Haemophilus parainfluenzae (including β-lactamase producing strains), Streptococcus pneumoniae (penicillin-susceptible strains only), and Moraxella catarrhalis (including β-lactamase producing strains) (see CLINICAL STUDIES ). Acute Exacerbations of Chronic Bronchitis caused by Haemophilus influenzae (including β-lactamase producing strains), Haemophilus parainfluenzae (including β-lactamase producing strains), Streptococcus pneumoniae (penicillin-susceptible strains only), and Moraxella catarrhalis (including β-lactamase producing strains). Acute Maxillary Sinusitis caused by Haemophilus influenzae (including β-lactamase producing strains), Streptococcus pneumoniae (penicillin-susceptible strains only), and Moraxella catarrhalis (including β-lactamase producing strains). NOTE: For information on use in pediatric patients, see PRECAUTIONS, Pediatric Use and DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION . Pharyngitis/Tonsillitis caused by Streptococcus pyogenes (see CLINICAL STUDIES ). NOTE: Cefdinir is effective in the eradication of S. pyogenes from the oropharynx. Cefdinir has not, however, been studied for the prevention of rheumatic fever following S. pyogenes pharyngitis/tonsillitis. Only intramuscular penicillin has been demonstrated to be effective for the prevention of rheumatic fever. Uncomplicated Skin and Skin Structure Infections caused by Staphylococcus aureus (including β-lactamase producing strains) and Streptococcus pyogenes. Pediatric Patients Acute Bacterial Otitis Media caused by Haemophilus influenzae (including β-lactamase producing strains), Streptococcus pneumoniae (penicillin-susceptible strains only), and Moraxella catarrhalis (including β-lactamase producing strains).

Sample Use Guides

In Vivo Use Guide
The total daily dose for all infections is 600 mg. Once-daily dosing for 10 days is as effective as BID dosing. Usual Adult Dose for Pneumonia: 300 mg orally every 12 hours for 10 to 14 days Acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis: 300 mg orally every 12 hours for 5 to 10 days or 600 mg orally every 24 hours for 10 days Acute maxillary sinusitis: 300 mg orally every 12 hours or 600 mg orally every 24 hours for 10 days
Route of Administration: Oral
Cefdinir had a much higher MIC90 against genotypic penicillin-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae (gPRSP) than cefditoren and cefcapene (8 mg/L cefdinir vs. 1 mg/L cefditoren and cefcapene).
