Brand Ceftin was a blue coated tablet which was just fine. These days all you get is a white generic tablet which starts dissolving as soon as it hits your tongue. It is horrible tasting. I now remember why I switched so many people over to Amoxicillin which always comes in capsules.
Ceftin might be a slightly better Lyme drug for many patients. You can request the brand product or you can quickly take the pill with fluids in hand. Once it dissolves on the tongue the taste seems to persist no matter what you do. Of course Flagyl and Biaxin are not great tasting but Ceftin is the worst. If anyone knows how to make it taste better please send a reply.
