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

I was recently in the hospital and treated for pneumonia with Rocephin in spite of a supposed allergy to PCN. Does this mean im not allergic to PCN?

"supposed allergy": Is the key word, but still we can't clear you to be NOT allergic to PCN, although highly unlikely that you are. Cross reactivity of penicillin and ceftriaxone (rocephin), is much less than other cephalosporins. If you need PCN and it is the only treatment for your condition, then testing / desensitization can be performed, otherwise there are alternatives, so you don't need to worry ...Read more

Depends.: It depends how severe your reaction is and who the prescribing practitioner is. There is about a 10% cross reactivity with cephalosporins (Rocephin (ceftriaxone)) and penicillin based drugs.
