Quick Enquiry

Ceftriaxone injection belongs to a class of medicine, called cephalosporin antibiotics used in the treatment of a range of bacterial infections. The medicine is usually indicated for gonorrhea (a sexually transmitted disease), pelvic inflammatory disease (infection of the female reproductive organs that may cause infertility), meningitis (infection of the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord), and infections of the lungs, ears, skin, urinary tract, blood, bones, joints, and abdomen. The injection is also admitted before surgery to prevent infections that may develop after the operation or surgery. Ceftriaxone and other antibiotics are not effective against viral infections such as colds, flu, and other infections. 

Do not self-administer the injection. Take the injection under the guidance of a medical professional. Complete the full course of medicine as per the dose and duration prescribed by the doctor. Some people may experience side effects such as pain, weakness, diarrhea, heartburn, or decreased urination. Inform your doctor if you are allergic to Ceftriaxone or similar medicines. In case your side effects get severe, immediately inform your doctor. Do not indulge in the overdose of this medicine as using antibiotics when they are not needed increases your risk of getting an infection later that resists antibiotic treatment.
