Pregnancy & Lactation

Cefuroxime is classified as a B drug by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use during pregnancy. In pregnant women, however, there are no sufficient and well-controlled research. Because animal reproduction studies aren’t usually indicative of human response, this medication should only be used during pregnancy if absolutely necessary. Cefuroxime is eliminated in human milk, according to research. When Cefuroxime is given to a nursing woman, caution should be observed.


Precautions & Warnings

Cefuroxime should be used with caution in individuals who are taking powerful diuretics and have a history of colitis.
