Cefotaxime (Claforan®) is an antibiotic prescribed for treating and preventing certain bacterial infections. It comes as an injection that is given either slowly into a vein (intravenously, by IV) or into a muscle (an intramuscular, or IM, injection).
As a type of cephalosporin antibiotic, cefotaxime works by stopping bacteria from making cell walls, which causes them to eventually die. Some of the possible side effects that have been reported with this drug include vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea.
