Vantin Suspension

Generic Name: Cefpodoxime Suspension (SEFF-pode-OX-eem)
Brand Name: Vantin

Vantin Suspension is used for:

Treating mild to moderate infections caused by certain bacteria.

Vantin Suspension is a cephalosporin antibiotic. It works by interfering with the formation of the bacteria"s cell wall so that the wall ruptures, resulting in the death of the bacteria.

Do NOT use Vantin Suspension if:

  • you are allergic to any ingredient in Vantin Suspension or any other cephalosporin antibiotic (eg, cephalexin, cefprozil)

Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.

Before using Vantin Suspension:

Tell your health care provider if you have any medical conditions, especially if any of the following apply to you:

  • if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding
  • if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement
  • if you have allergies to medicines, foods, or other substances
  • if you have diarrhea, a stomach or intestinal infection, or a blood clotting problem
  • if you have had a severe allergic reaction (eg, a severe rash, hives, breathing difficulties, or dizziness), to a penicillin antibiotic (eg, amoxicillin) or other beta-lactam antibiotic (eg, imipenem)

Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with Vantin Suspension. Tell your health care provider if you are taking any other medicines, especially any of the following:

  • Aminoglycosides (eg, gentamicin), cyclosporine, or diuretics (eg, furosemide, hydrochlorothiazide) because the risk of side effects on the kidney may be increased

This may not be a complete list of all interactions that may occur. Ask your health care provider if Vantin Suspension may interact with other medicines that you take. Check with your health care provider before you start, stop, or change the dose of any medicine.

How to use Vantin Suspension:

Use Vantin Suspension as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.

  • Vantin Suspension may be taken with food or on an empty stomach.
  • Vantin Suspension works best if it is taken at the same time each day.
  • To clear up your infection completely, continue using Vantin Suspension for the full course of treatment even if you feel better in a few days.
  • Shake well before each use.
  • Use a measuring device marked for medicine dosing. Ask your pharmacist for help if you are unsure of how to measure this dose.
