Doctors indicate Ceftriaxone Injection, as an effective treatment for certain infections caused by bacteria. It is effective in gonorrhea (sexually transmitted disease), meningitis (infection of membranes surrounding spinal cord and brain), and pelvic inflammatory diseases (infection in female reproduction system). In the same way, it treats infection of the ears, lungs, urinary tract, blood, bones, joints, and abdomen.

Ceftriaxone Injection sometimes is also administered among the patients before performing surgery. It prevents infections with the risk of occurring after the operation. However, antibiotics like Ceftriaxone don’t work for flu, colds, and viral infections. Unnecessary usage of antibiotics may lead to getting an infection that makes antibiotics less effective or resists antibiotic treatment.

This injection contains Ceftriaxone, which is a cephalosporin antibiotic. It functions by irreversibly and selectively inhibiting bacterial cell wall synthesis by binding to transamidases (also known as transpeptidases). In short, it stops the growth of bacteria. It is not recommended for use among newborns with high blood bilirubin levels. Also, among premature infants due to increased risk of adverse effects.
