Nafcillin IV Dose

A healthcare provider may prescribe nafcillin for adults and children who have certain bacterial infections. Nafcillin is given by IV (intravenously, as an injection into a vein) or as an injection into a muscle (an intramuscular, or IM, injection) two to six times daily. The prescribed dose is highly individualized for each person and will depend on things like your weight, the type and severity of the infection being treated, and other medications you are taking.
 
The length of treatment recommended will vary, depending on the type and severity of the infection. Treatment is usually continued for at least two days after all signs and symptoms of the infection are gone.
