Nosocef Injection (Ceftriaxone)
What is Nosocef Injection (Ceftriaxone) used for?
Nosocef Injection (Ceftriaxone) is an injectable cephalosporin antibiotic prescribed to treat bacterial infections including serious or life threatening infections. The medication operates by slowing or stopping the reproduction of bacteria cells making it easier for the immune system to eliminate the infection. This makes it useful for treating conditions such as pneumonia, bacterial meningitis, bacterial blood infections, bacterial infections following surgery, or bacterial infections of the skin or soft tissues. Your doctor may also prescribe this medication for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Nosocef Injection (Ceftriaxone)?
Nosocef Injection (Ceftriaxone) is normally administered by your doctor or a fully trained health care professional in a hospital or clinic. If you are required to perform your own injection, make sure you are fully instructed in the correct procedure to prevent serious complications that may occur. Your particular dosage will be determined by your doctor based on your age, weight, current health, the condition being treated, and the severity of your symptoms. To administer the medication sterilize the needle and injection site, collect the prescribed amount of medicine into the syringe, remove any air by holding it upright and pressing the plunger until a small amount of liquid is released, and slowly inject the medicine into a muscle or vein. Always observe the solution prior to each use to make sure it is not cloudy or discoloured as this may indicate contamination. Ask your doctor any questions you have about using the medicine to ensure the correct administration.
