What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose of Cefprozil?

If you do not take your cefprozil as scheduled, take it as soon as you remember, unless it is almost time for your next dose. In this case, simply skip the missed dose and continue with your usual schedule. Try not to miss any doses, as doing so increases the chance of developing a more serious infection.

Is There a Generic Version?

This medication is available in generic form (see Generic Cefzil).
