Note: While conducting our research, we have not found any image for Cedar. Image shown above is the picture of Cefadroxil which is the active ingredient of this brand.
Cedar is a broad-spectrum antibiotic mainly used for bacterial infections in the urinary tract, soft tissue, throat, tonsils and skin.
Cefadroxil belongs to the group of drug called Cephalosporin. This generic acts by stopping the bacterial growth. While taking this medication, awareness about antibiotic resistance is very important. This brand should be taken with a doctor’s prescription. There should be strict compliance.
Improper administration of this drug may cause antibiotic resistance and it mainly happens when you suddenly stop taking the medicine and some bacteria still exist in the body. Cedar is found in three strength 250mg tablet, 500mg tablet and 125 mg dry syrup for kids.
After the in depth research, we have not found any customer reviews for Cedar. Thus, we highly suggest that you look for a trusted alternative brand of antibiotic with the same generic or active ingredient Cefadroxil.
Although Cedar contains Cefadroxil, which is great for bacterial infections in the urinary tract, throat, soft tissue, tonsils and skin, we can’t say that this drug is safe and proven effective since there is no feedback from real consumers online. The absence of user reviews for this drug that would prove the effectiveness, safety and other benefits, as well as the credibility of its manufacturer, Paradigm Healthcare, do not let us vote in favor of this drug. You may also consult your physician for another brand of medication containing the same generic for treatment of bacterial infections.
Pricing and Dosages
Usually, cefadroxil antibiotics are taken twice per day in 12 hours intervals for 7 days depending on the dosage and strength or as instructed by the doctor. Avoid abrupt discontinuation of this medication as antibiotics are known to be resistant if not treated properly.
How to Buy Cedar Online
It seems that the brand is very unpopular and not available outside of India. Moreover, it is rarely found online to purchase directly from online stores and pharmacies.
How to Use Cedar
Before taking Cedar, you must first undergo consultation for assessment of allergy to cephalosporin antibiotics, kidney and liver disease. You must tell the doctor if you are pregnant, suspected to be pregnant, or a lactating mom as Cefadroxil may pass into breast milk and may even harm the baby. Tell your doctor if you are diabetic as the active ingredient of this brand contains sucrose.

If in case that the drug was already expired, contact the doctor. Take the medicine with food and a full glass of water to prevent gastric upset.

Cefadroxil, the active ingredient of cedar, is an antibiotic that fights against bacterial infections in the urinary tract, throat, tonsils, skin, soft tissue and pharynx. Cefadroxil is a type of cephalosporin antibiotic that prevents the spread of bacteria, especially staphylococci.
Cedar is rarely found to buy online and no customer reviews have been found to prove its effectiveness or absence of severe adverse effects. It is an ‘alien like’ cefadroxil brand outside of India and we recommend you to choose trusted alternative brand by consulting your physician as we are also not aware of its manufacturer’s credibility. However, due to the lack of customer reviews online that would prove the effectiveness of this brand, on a scale of 1-5, Cedar is rated 1.
