What are Generics?
Generic drugs marketed without brand names contain the exact same active ingredients used in their brand-name counterparts, but cost significantly less. The drugs are required to meet U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards for safety, purity and effectiveness.
Vantin (Cefpodoxime) is a cephalosporin antibiotic used to treat different types of infections caused by bacteria. It works by interfering with the formation of the bacteria's cell wall and ruptures it, resulting in the death of the bacteria. Vantin is one of Pfizer's best-selling medications!
Generic Vantin may also be marketed as: Cefpodoxime, Cefotop, C-Doxim, Simplicef.
*Vantin® is manufactured by Pfizer.
