Rocephin IV Drug Information

Rocephin® (ceftriaxone) is available only by prescription and is approved for treating several types of infections, such as ear infections, meningitis, gonorrhea, and respiratory tract infections, just to name a few. It is part of a group of antibiotics called cephalosporins and works by preventing bacteria from making cell walls (which eventually kills the bacteria).
 
Available in the form of a solution, Rocephin is either administered as an injection or intravenously (by IV). Because this drug is not suitable for everyone, make sure your healthcare provider has complete information on your medical history and what medicines you are taking (including nonprescription medications and herbal supplements).
 
Although many people do not have any problems while taking this antibiotic, Rocephin can cause side effects, such as diarrhea, an unexplained rash, and reactions at the injection site. If negative reactions do occur, they tend to be mild and easily treated.
