 5  Crohns Disease No mental side affects from this at all. It helps alot with crohns disease. I can stay out of the hospital if I stay on this. I get over flare ups much faster with this and don't develop serious problems. I definitely noticed herxheimer reactions with this when I first started it which is most likely what most of the people posting about such severe issues are having as well. It will kill most of your intestinal flora which is good for patients like me who can so easily have sibo. It completely eliminates my problem with excess gas, and smell. I have very little gas now. I also take S.Boulardii which is a yeast probiotic and not killed off by antibiotics. M 48 1 years

 1  Chronic sinusitis Severe anxiety, dizziness/balance problems, constant worry, depression, brain fog, insomnia, dry mouth, dry eyes I already suffer anxiety and worry when it comes to health issues. Having chronic sinusitis already worsens my anxiety/depression and lack of motivation. I thought I was just getting sicker, but this medicine made me feel much worse. It may have cleared up some of the infection but would never recommend this. M 22 6 days

 2  UTI Anxiety, Panic Attacks, paranoia, constant fear, insomnia, increased heart rate. I will never take this antibiotic again, I will ask for another. It cleared up my UTI, the abdominal pain is gone and I'm thankful for that but the side effects were like living in my own personal hell. A little over 24hrs into this I began getting paranoia induced shakes, insomnia, wake up with anxiety attacks or in the middle of the night with a rapid heart rate. No matter what I did I couldn't calm down like I usually can with meditation and exercise. I am prone to anxiety and this was like someone took my nervous dial and cranked it to 100. I'll never take this med again willingly, I had to combat with my lorazepam which I absolutely hate taking. Hoping now that the meds are done I can flush it out of my system and feel better in a day or two. F 32 7 days

 1  Sinusitis I wasn't sure what was happening until reading the other reviews. Days into taking this medication I started feeling off, dizzy spells, trouble sleeping and turned into insomnia (I have always been an excellent sleeper). Then came the anxiety and impending doom. It was crazy. I think it got rid of the sinus infection but I'm not sure it was worth the risk. I've been on the medication for a week and am still having anxiety/sleep/balance issues. I've never been on anti anxiety meds in my life and just has to get on some. It was out of the blue and very sudden. Oh, and loss of appetite. I would never take this again, ever. F 38 10 days

 1  Otitis Media Anxiety(I was finally getting to a good place and not having panic attacks every night until this medication), stomach burning, weird pain when I took a deep breath, ringing in my ears, jaw pain, fatigue, headache, palpitations, tachycardia, and an almost strep looking rash on my arms. I stopped this medication after 4 days. It did clear my ear infection that quick, but it definitely was not worth it. I will take the ear infection next time, never ever taking this again. I thought I was crazy until I read reviews. F 19 4 days

 3  Bacterial Pneumonia Sore stomach, terrible anxiety fear and dread, rapid pulse rate out of the blue and sweating. It's cleared up my hacking, coughing and wheezing, but the side effects are pretty bad. Stomach pain, anxiety, absolute dread fear of anything and everything and weird dreams. The worst is the rapid pulse, shaking and weakness. After the first 3 days and tonight day 9, I started getting rapid pulse rate and sweating like a pig. I wondered why the urgent care doc gave me clonidine. He must have known the rapid heart rate was a side affect. I was scared to death. I took a clonidine, a cold shower and about an hour later I'm ok. Tomorrow is the last day. Never again will I take this medicine. Ever. F 61 10 days

 1  Sinus infection Diarrhea, joint paint, dehydration, Gastritis This is probably one if the worst antibiotics I’ve ever taken I. My life. This antibiotic gave me gastritis, and 6 months later I am still trying to recover from gastritis. This antibiotic is a last resort antibiotic for a reason. Avoid at all cost. F 26 7 days

OMNICEF  (CEFDINIR):  Cefdinir is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. This medication is known as a cephalosporin antibiotic. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. This antibiotic treats only bacterial infections. It will not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
