Brief Answer:
Cefdinir is ok with Entresto

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome,

I checked on Lexicomp and it is safe to take Cefdinir and Entresto. No adverse interactions were identified.

I see that you wrote that you are taking Tylenol Cold, and I put into the list of medications I checked "Tylenol Cold/Flu Severe". I don't know if that is the Tylenol Cold preparation you are taking or if it is something else - there are a number of different formulations. I mention this because some of these cold medicines contain pseudoephedrine which your cardiologist may not want you to take if you have problems with high blood pressure. Just something to consider. What you are taking may not contain pseudo ephedrine in which case it is not an issue.

I hope this information helps. Please let me know if I can provide further information.
