  • Penicillins and Cephalosporins [hide all summaries]
    Penicillins are a group of antibiotics used to kill bacteria or prevent infections. They are probably the least toxic of all the antibiotics. The penicillins are some of the most commonly prescribed antibiotics and are often the drugs of choice for people who are not allergic to them. Cephalosporins are relatives of the penicillins and have a similar, if slightly expanded, range of action. They have a good safety record but certain problems can occur with their use. Diarrhea is the most common adverse effect, and it may become so bad that treatment must be stopped.
