What Happens If I Miss A Dose Of Ceftriaxone
How long does it take for ceftriaxone IV take to start working? I've had 3 out of 5 doses to treat cellulitis
Several days: It takes several days for IV ax's to start working. Five days seem a bit short though. May need longer treatment with IV ax's and ax's per oral. Check with your doctor. ...Read more
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. Condoms help but are not perfect. ...Read more
Can rocephin (ceftriaxone) cause anaphylactic shock if you are given a large dose and allegergic to penicillin how much could cause that?
Rocephin (ceftriaxone) allergy: Rocephin (ceftriaxone) belongs to the cephalosporin group of antibiotics. Cephalosporins are chemically related to penicillin and have been shown to cross react in individuals allergic to penicillin in 5-7% of patients. The reactions can vary from hives and itching to throat closing and anaphylactic shock. Giving Rocephin (ceftriaxone) to someone who is allergic to penicillin could result in anaphylaxis. ...Read more
If ceftriaxone IV is utilized in place of cefotetan/cefoxitin IV as inpatient pid regimen, what would be appropriate dose of ceftriaxone IV?
Depends: It depends on what is being treated, what the sensitivity of the organism is and why changes are being made. Medications have different dosages that are appropriate for that medication that do not correlate with other medications. For instance we may use 1 million units of penicillin for an infection or 250 mg of Zithromax for the same infection. It has to do with the effective dose. ...Read more
My gonorrhea is clearing up. And I hardly see the white pus coming out of my penis. But I still urinate frequently like every 2hrs. Do I continue with cefixime or take a single dose of ceftriaxone?
I tested positive for chlamydia 3 weeks ago. I was given rocephin (ceftriaxone) shot, azithromycin and flagyl, all one dose, is it alright?
Yogurt: Ceftriaxone is an antibiotic. There is absolutely no problem eating yogurt while on this antibiotic. Just know that the live cultures in the antibiotic, the 'good bacteria' get killed off by the antibiotic just as do the infection causing bacteria. However, if you like yogurt there is no reason you cannot eat it while of the medicine. ...Read more
None for GC: It sounds like you're asking about treatment of gonorrhea. If so, there is no oral equivalent. Because of drug resistance, we can no longer use oral quinolones or cephalosporins to treat gonorrhea, and if things keep going the way they're going, we may soon see untreatable gonorrhea, or gonorrhea that requires intravenous antibiotics. ...Read more
I read that both drugs are ceftriaxone, so what is the difference between them and when do we give each?
Cephalosporins: You should not be using these without a specific indication and without a prescription from a doctor. There are no safe antibiotics and complications are potentially quite serious. Different generations are effective against different organisms and may be given by different routes. ...Read more
Depends: Name brand and generic drugs have wildly different costs. The markup on drugs is approximately 100% over wholesale but then is discoutned by most insurance companies. Add to that the cost of the drug administration which can be 10-75$ for intramuscular injection and 5-10 times that for IV injection and you can estimate the price. ...Read more
Transport is unclear:
The transport of drugs into the CNS after IV administration is
very complex and not fully understood. The blood brain barrier,
which has a protective function, is difficult to cross. So the answer to the question is unknown. A good discussion of this subject
can be found in clinical microbiology reviews, october 2010
vol23., no.4 pg 858-883. ...Read more
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
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. 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
I was treated for gonnorhea last week w/injection ceftriaxone 250/1g azythromyacn. What is length of recovery time, can I masturbate during recovery?
I had gono and was treated with 500mg ceftriaxone iv, 3 weeks ago. All symptoms gone except intermittent small pain on my left testicle. Shld I worry?
Gonorrhea: 500 mg of Ceftriaxone i/v seems like a little too excessive vs. 125 mg i/m as recommended in the us. The pain in the testicle may be residual, but if not gone away within the next few days, you will need to go see doc. One way or the other, I recommend you be retested to make sure gonorrhea has been cured. ...Read more
