Hypersensitivity to Cefditoren, other cephalosporins; or milk proteins. Carnitine deficiency.
Drug Precautions ::
Pregnancy and lactation. Patients with penicillin allergy. Avoid prolonged use as pivalate-containing compounds may cause carnitine deficiency over time; greater risk of carnitine deficiency in patients with renal impairment or decreased muscle mass. May decrease prothrombin activity especially in patients with renal or hepatic impairment, poor nutritional status, prolonged antibiotic treatment or patients previously stabilised on anticoagulant therapy. Long term use may result in development of drug-resistant bacteria, or superinfection including Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhoea and pseudomembranous colitis.

Drug Mode of Action ::
Cefditoren is a third generation cephalosporin used for treatment of susceptible infections caused by gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. It inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis by binding to one or more of the penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs).
Drug Interactions ::
Reduced oral bioavailability when coadministered with antacids or H2-receptor antagonists. Probenecid may increase plasma concentration and prolong half-life of Cefditoren. May enhance anticoagulant effect of vitamin K antagonists (e.g. warfarin).
