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).
