Safe and effective alternative for Amoxicillin?

Recommended Posts

My DS 14 is allergic to amoxicillin so my LLND prescribed Suprax for him. However, I didn't find much information and only heard a few feedbacks with no change or worse symptoms. It also is extremely expensive ($830 for only 30 capsules). My insurance doesn't cover it.

Please share any other antibiotics in class of cephalosporins that work greatly and most insurances will cover.

Thank you in advance!

When my insurance wasn't going to cover Suprax, our doctor called in Ceftin instead.  We never used it, because my insurance did end up covering the Suprax.  My daughter responded well to it, but only for a little while.  It kind of wore off, like every other antibiotic does.  When it did work well, she was taking it in combination with Alinia and Zithromax, so I really don't know if it was the Suprax alone that I saw the results from.  The way our pharmacy works, is they automatically call the doctor for a replacement when our insurance doesn't cover the medication. Maybe you could ask yours to do the same?

Thank you! Plum99. I just got Ceftin that my insurance covered but it needs to be taken twice a day. My DS will be on combination with Zith, Ceftin and Rifampin.
