Cefprozil tablets should be stored at room temperature. The powder that is used to make the liquid suspension should be stored at room temperature until it is mixed by your pharmacist. After it is mixed, it should be kept under refrigeration and discarded after 14 days.
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.
