i want to know about the reason for which cefotaxime comes only as injection but not as a tablet or capsule
This is a total guess but I do know that this drug is only stable under certain pH conditions so my guess is that it would be destroyed by the stomach acid. Usually this is the reason certain drugs cannot ever be in pill form is that something about the digestive system either destroys the drug or that it cannot be aborbed in the digestive tract. Ask a pharmacist. they should know enough about chemistry to be able to tell you.
