 1  UTI Flu-like pain all over, sore joints especially knees, bouts of hypertension and chest pain that would subside with lots of water, but would return and kept me from going out. Dizziness. This should not be prescribed for older people, it's too strong. I felt the hypertension and pain and pressure in my chest would cause me to go back to the doctor and she would prescribe blood pressure medication (I have normal blood pressure) so I rested and took 1/4 of an aspirin and drank plenty of water. I didn't want to get into the blood pressure medication circus and make things worse. Please be smart and don't take this drug. With rest and water I'm feeling better, but it's scary to think you might have a stroke. F 77 5 days

 3  sinus infection The medication did dry out my sinus somewhat, I still had a lot of drainage during all days. 4th day started to shut down the drainage. It kills the appetite, upsets the stomach slightly and makes constant need to poop after eating w/in 30-40 minutes. No matter if the food is just liquid. Exhaustion is constant. Hard to focus. I am to take it for 10 days, if I can make it that long. I may just stop it before then. F 78 5 days
500mg 2X D
 5  Serious UTI (kidney) I had some nausea the first few days but I'm not even sure it was caused by the cefuroxime, as I was extremely nauseous from the infection before starting this med. After the 2nd or 3rd day, zero side effects. I actually had to take this drug for a total of 15 days, not counting the IV dose of it that they gave me at the hospital. This was my first experience with antibiotics and I was extremely nervous about it, having heard many horror stories about what antibiotics can do to you. I finished about 1.5 weeks ago and have had none of the terrible effects I was expecting, and it cleared the infection. F 46 10 days
500mg 2x D
 5  Sinus Infection Tired but this is probably because the medicine is killing the bacteria. I had a bad sinus infection and had no energy to even drive to see the doctor. Took one 500 mg pill and it knocked me out. The next day I felt better, took 500 mg split in half. No side effects, day 3 and I feel like a human being again. F 40 5 days
500 mg 1X D

CEFUROXIME AXETIL  (CEFUROXIME AXETIL):  Cefuroxime 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)
