Drug Interactions With Cefotaxime

Oral Typhoid Vaccine
Like other antibiotics, cefotaxime may decrease the effectiveness of the oral typhoid vaccine. If you have received cefotaxime recently or are currently using it, your oral typhoid vaccine may need to be postponed for at least a day after receiving the drug.
 
Probenecid
Probenecid can decrease the body's ability to remove cefotaxime from the blood, potentially leading to high cefotaxime blood levels. Talk with your healthcare provider before using these medications together. In general, people taking probenecid should receive no more than 6 grams of cefotaxime each day.
