I got a shot of Rocephin 1 gm today almost 5 hours ago for Strep throat. Should I wait until tomorrow to start Amoxicillin 3 times daily?
Usually Rocephin is given as an intramuscular injection of a 1gm dose. It is normally given once every 24 hours. Therefore, I would start taking the amoxicillin/clavulanate tomorrow morning. Diarrhea is normal with this med although if it becomes serious you will want to contact your physician. I hope this helps.
