Rare Side Effects of Rocephin

Rocephin has some rare side effects that occur in less than 1 percent of patients. It is difficult to tell whether these side effects are due to the medication or something else.
Some of these possible Rocephin side effects include, but are not limited to:
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Upset stomach
  • Headaches
  • Yeast infection
  • Inflammation of the vagina (vaginitis)
  • Dizziness
  • Chills
  • Anemia
  • Low platelets in the blood (thrombocytopenia)
  • Sweating
  • Blood in the urine
  • Serious intestinal infection (enterocolitis).

Final Thoughts

It is possible that you may experience some or none of the side effects mentioned above. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried.
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be a Rocephin side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
