Medicine For Rocephin Overdose
UTI: Rocephin (ceftriaxone) - Ceftriaxone - is a parenteral antibiotic, only can be given IV or IM. Most simple UTIs need only an oral antibiotic, and 3 days is often enough. Usually, there would be no indication for a parenteral antibiotic unless you have a complicated and/or resistant infection. In that case, you may need a longer course of treatment, too. ...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. 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Get a follow- up: A follow-up test for GC is best. Sometimes people become carriers. Rocephin (ceftriaxone) is the treatment of choice. It is a cephalosporin, not a penicillin, so it is usually safe to use on a person allergic to penicillin. Be sure to check for other STD now and in the future.

Can somebody with knowledge of healthcare please tell me how to do a rocephin (ceftriaxone) injection?
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

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.

So $400 for the drug, then the nursing which is quite costly -and needs to be done right to avoid complications. Hopefully a doctor is managing you. ...Read more
