How soon after taking dose rocephin people stop being contagious?

How soon after taking dose rocephin people stop being contagious?

Get a follow- up: A follow-up test for GC is best. Sometimes people become carriers. Rocephin 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. Condoms help but are not perfect. ...Read more

Rocephin im works on staphylococcus angine. If yes after how many shots symptoms and fever will get better? When to decide to switch to IV rocephin?

Bacteria sensitivity: Just because you have an identification of the bacteria, a sensitivity test must be done if you want to know if a particular antibiotic will work on it. Bacteria are very smart and can mutate, and some types of this staph may not be sensitive to rocephin. If it is sensitive, it depends on the extent and site of the infection as to how long it takes to get better and to decide if you need it iv. ...Read more

I have infected renal cyst (aspirated) e coli also a perinephric abscess. I have been on rocephin for 4 weeks. How long should treatment last?

I have infected renal cyst (aspirated) e coli also a perinephric abscess. I have been on rocephin for 4 weeks. How long should treatment last?

Need more info: Ceftriaxone is good therapy if the e. Coli is sensitive in vitro, the abscess has been drained, and the precipitating cause removed. 4-6 weeks of treatment is appropriate, but before dcing therapy need WBC count, esr, CRP and results of imaging studies in follow-up. Consult with your urologist, infectious diseases doctor or both. Hope this is cured soon. ...Read more
