I had in the back of my mind that I read something here about omnicef and PA. I did a search and didn't find it. Am I really losing it?

Does anyone know if there is a connection? My memory is that someone found out that there are pn somewhere in the manufacturing process. I may have dreamed this though!

THanks for the help!

My PA son is also allergic to Omnicef. I had never heard that there is a connection between the 2, but would be interested to learn more if there is!

No connection at all. Omnicef belongs to the class of antibiotics known as cephalosporins, distant relatives of penicillin.

I read that peanut and soy are used in the fermentation process according to the makers of Omnicef.

My son is allergic to peanuts, milk and others. The pediatrician had given him Omnicef (she said it was free of his allergens) and he developed a rash. I called his allergist (Dr. Wood) and he said that Omnicef has traces of milk in it, he said nothing about peanuts. I now check with Dr. Wood before my son takes any prescription medicine.
