Patient : "good evening doctor! due to UTI problem, I am taking cefuroxime axetil for 3 days now which was prescribed by my doctor. The side effect was a little bit bloody stool but I am not having diarhrea, should I continue? is it tolerable since I am not having diarhea?" Thanks!
Doctor :   Bloody stools is not a common side effect of cefuroxime. I would suggest that you stop the drug and see your doctor as e arliest as you can.
