What's the difference between a midline and PICC line? I know one is shorter than the other but why? Can 21 days of rocephin be placed in a midline?

What's the difference between a midline and PICC line? I know one is shorter than the other but why? Can 21 days of rocephin be placed in a midline?

The midline catheter: Is essentially a glorified peripheral IV catheter that can be left in place for up to 30 days. Although rocephin can be administered through it, it is likely that the vein it is in will sclerose from the antibiotic within a few days necessitating replacement. Central venous administration through a PICC line will avoid this potential complication. ...Read more

How much would 2g of rocephin (ceftriaxone) for 42days cost on average without health insurance?

Proper treatment: Try calling your Walmart Pharmacy near you - I went to GoodRx. Com and found this: Walmart Pharmacy - 150 Gold Star Hwy Groton, CT (860) 449-6902. It was $9 a vial, and you'll have to multiply that out, PLUS get access to the nursing care you'll need.

Can I take Rocephin (ceftriaxone) if I'm allergic to penicillin?

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. Usually if the reaction is minor, I will prescribe a cephalosporin like Rocephin (ceftriaxone). However, if the reaction to the penicillin based med is severe like shortness of breath, swelling or anaphylaxis I may avoid them completely. ...Read more

How long after receiving a shot of Rocephin (ceftriaxone) should an abscess start healing?

More Rx needed?: A single shot of ceftriaxone (Rocephin) would rarely be the only treatment for an abscess; and usually an abscess also requires minor surgery to drain it. Usually additional antibiotic (s) also are given. If these weren't done, discuss with the doctor treating you. Even with all these treatments, it usually takes 1-2 weeks for healing, although it should stop getting worse right away. ...Read more

Received injection of rocephin (ceftriaxone) and prescribed antibiotics. Should I wait until next day to begin antibiotics?

Follow instructions: Follow the instructions of the doctor who prescribed the injection and oral antibiotics. If one does not recall the instructions, one generally can go ahead and start the oral antibiotics (instead of waiting until the next day). This usually works fine, because the level of oral antibiotics in the body will be rising as the level of injected antibiotics is going away. ...Read more
