Ceftriaxone: To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of Ciftriaxone and other antibacterial drugs, Ceftriaxone should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by bacteria. Ceftriaxone is a sterile, semisynthetic, broad-spectrum cephalosporin antibiotic for intravenous or intramuscular administration.

Cefotaxime: To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of cefotaxime sodium and other antibacterial drugs, cefotaxime should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by bacteria. Sterile cefotaxime sodium is a semisynthetic, broad spectrum cephalosporin antibiotic for parenteral administration.

ceftriaxone can't be use for infant (under 14 days) while cefotaxime can.
But if got patient with liver/renal dysfuntion ceftriaxone is better choice.
Ceftriaxone can be excreted either in bile or renal
