I was recently given ceftriaxone (shot), azithromycin (pill) and flagyl (pill) as pre-exposure preventative therapy. Is dark urine a side effect?

I was recently given ceftriaxone (shot), azithromycin (pill) and flagyl (pill) as pre-exposure preventative therapy. Is dark urine a side effect?

Nope: None of these drugs is a likely cause of dark urine; no worries there, but contact the doctor or clinic where you were treated. Obviously you were considered at risk for STDs. These drugs will prevent gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, and trichomonas, but not viral STDs like HIV, herpes, hepatitis B, and HPV. Be sure to follow up as directed by the doctor or clinic. Good luck! ...Read more

Can ceftriaxone cause anaphylactic shock despite that it is used time and again already?

Yes, but: Kind of rare still, you need to avoid the medicine and cephalosporins for now, the diagnosis should be revised and analyzed, some detective work need to be performed to make sure that it was truly the ceftriaxone that caused the reaction and not something else. A note of allergies on the patient's chart should be flagged till sorted out, good luck ...Read more

Infection ..: Ceftriaxone is a type of antibiotic, a so-called cephalosporin. It can be given intramuscular, as in the muscle, like in your case or by intravenous(right into the blood stream). It sounds like your physician is using this medicine to treat a possible urinary tract infection but you should review this with him or her. The injection can leave the injection site sore! Best of luck. ...Read more

Took IV rocephin (ceftriaxone) and was ok, on 3rd day dosage raised, broke out in rash. Did high dosage cause reaction or just allergy in general? 38 F

Either is possible: rashes from antibiotics can occur even after you have taken it before. Did you just have a rash, or did you get fever and or hives too? Did you feel any shortness of breath? It is very possible that it was only the higher dose that triggered the reaction. The only way to tell is to cautiously try it again, but you should discuss with your doctor so s/he is fully aware and can gage the risk to y ...Read more
