Duricef is a brand name for a medication called cefadroxil, which is a first-generation cephalosporin antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections.

Duricef belongs to a class of drugs called cephalosporin antibiotics and is effective against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial infections.

Some common infections treated by Duricef include strep throat, urinary tract infections, and skin infections. Veterinary use for treating infected wounds on animals is also possible with Duricef.

Use and Dosage

Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once or twice a day. You may take this medication with food if stomach upset occurs.

If you are using the liquid form of this medication, shake the bottle well before each dose. Carefully measure the dose using a special measuring device/spoon. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose.

The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. In children, the dosage is also based on weight.

For the best effect, take this antibiotic at evenly spaced times. To help you remember, take this medication at the same time(s) every day.

Continue to take this medication until the full prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may result in a return of the infection.

Tell your doctor if your condition lasts or gets worse.

In deciding to use a medicine, the risks of taking the medicine must be weighed against the good it will do. This is a decision you and your doctor will make. For this medicine, the following should be considered:


Tell your doctor if you have ever had any unusual or allergic reaction to this medicine or any other medicines. Also tell your health care professional if you have any other types of allergies, such as to foods, dyes, preservatives, or animals. For non-prescription products, read the label or package ingredients carefully.


Appropriate studies performed to date have not demonstrated pediatric-specific problems that would limit the usefulness of cefadroxil in children.


Appropriate studies performed to date have not demonstrated geriatric-specific problems that would limit the usefulness of cefadroxil in the elderly. However, elderly patients are more likely to have age-related kidney problems, which may require caution and an adjustment in the dose for patients receiving cefadroxil.
