My daughter is taking Cefdinir. Per bronchitis. Within an hour after first sa Within an hour of the first dose, she became very irritable. She's having difficulty sleeping. Her behavior has changed as well, and she's only taken 2 doses. How long do these side effects last for after the last dose?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

This is for my daughter that is 1. She doesn't take any, and none that I'm aware of

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. Just how long side effects like these last. And are they normal with Cefdinir?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
