Medical and Pharmacy Editor:

DRUG INTERACTIONS: Aluminum or magnesium containing antacids reduce the absorption of cefaclor from the intestine. Separating the administration of cefaclor and such antacids by one hour prevents this interaction.

PREGNANCY: There are no adequate studies of cefaclor in pregnant women.

NURSING MOTHERS: Small amounts of cefaclor are secreted in breast milk. The effects of this small amount on the infant is unknown.
