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.What generation is Omnicef?
Cefdinir and cefixime (Suprax) are partially man made (semi-synthetic) 3rd generation antibiotics that belong to the drug class called cephalosporins. Bacteria cannot survive without a cell wall, so cephalosporins prevent the bacteria from multiplying, which then prevents bacteria from forming the walls that surround them.Is Omnicef a penicillin derivative?
In brief: Omnicef (cefdinir) Cefdinir is an oral later generation cephalosporin antibiotic. It is not a penicillin derivative but does have a beta-lactam ring in its structure, similar to that of penicillins. Cefdinir is an oral later generation cephalosporin antibiotic.
