SALT INFORMATIONCefadroxil (500 mg) TYPICAL USAGE Urinary tract infections caused by E-coli, P mirabilis and klebsiella spp. Skin infections caused by staphylococci and/or streptococci. Pharyngitis and tonsilitis causes by Group A Beta-haemolytic streptococci. SIDE EFFECTS Dizziness, anorexia, diarrhea, fever, chills, urticaria, vaginitis, glossitis, dermatitis, paresthesias, bleeding. DRUG INTERACTION Tell your doctor of all prescription and nonprescription medication you may use. Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval. MECHANISM OF ACTION Cefadroxil binds to specific penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) located inside the bacterial cell wall, causing the inhibition of the third and last stage of bacterial cell wall synthesis. Cell lysis is then mediated by bacterial cell wall autolytic enzymes such as autolysins; it is possible that cefadroxil interferes with an autolysin inhibitor.
