Sorry this question has not been answered earlier for you.
Both ceftriaxone and cefixime are classed as third generation cephalosporin antibiotics.
Because they belong to the same "generation" their antimicrobial properties are very similar.
Each generation has greater Gram-negative antimicrobial properties than the preceding generation, in most cases with decreased activity against Gram-positive organisms.
See the links below for more detailed information.
