1 Answer. As far as strength goes though id say amoxicillin is a bit stronger than Omnicef. Omnicef is a safer drug to take than amoxicillin though and isn’t that what you are looking for in a drug one thats not going to have alot more side effects.Are Omnicef and cefdinir the same drug?
Omnicef (cefdinir) is in a class of antibiotics called cephalosporins. It is a third generation cephalosporin. Amoxicillin is classed as an aminopenicillin. They are both used to treat some of the same things like infections in the nose, ears, throat, skin, lungs, sinuses etc.Should you take Omnicef with food?
Follow the directions on your prescription label. You may take Omnicef with or without food. Shake the oral suspension (liquid) well just before you measure a dose. To be sure you get the correct dose, measure the liquid with a marked measuring spoon or medicine cup, not with a regular table spoon.
