The name of your medicine is “Ceftriaxone Powder for Solution
for Injection or Infusion” (referred to as Ceftriaxone injection
throughout this leaflet).
1. What Ceftriaxone injection is and what it is used for
Ceftriaxone is an antibiotic given to adults and children
(including newborn babies). It works by killing bacteria that
cause infections. It belongs to a group of medicines called
cephalosporins.
Ceftriaxone injection is used to treat infections of:
• the brain (meningitis).
• the lungs.
• the middle ear.
• the abdomen and abdominal wall (peritonitis).
• the urinary tract and kidneys.
• bones and joints.
• the skin or soft tissues.
• the blood.
• the heart.
It can be given:
• to treat specific sexually transmitted infections (gonorrhoea
and syphilis).
• to treat patients with low white blood cell counts
(neutropenia) who have fever due to bacterial infection.
• to treat infections of the chest in adults with chronic
bronchitis.
• to treat Lyme disease (caused by tick bites) in adults and
children including newborn babies from 15 days of age.
• to prevent infections during surgery.
2. What you need to know before you are given Ceftriaxone
injection
You must not be given Ceftriaxone injection if:
• You are allergic to ceftriaxone
• You have had a sudden or severe allergic reaction to
penicillin or similar antibiotics (such as cephalosporins,
carbapenems or monobactams). The signs include sudden
swelling of the throat or face which might make it difficult to
breath or swallow, sudden swelling of the hands, feet and
ankles, and a severe rash that develops quickly.
• You are allergic to lidocaine and you are to be given
Ceftriaxone injection as an injection into a muscle.
Ceftriaxone injection must not be given to babies if:
• The baby is premature.
• The baby is newborn (up to 28 days of age) and has certain
blood problems or jaundice (yellowing of the skin or the
whites of the eyes) or is to be given a product that contains
calcium into their vein.
Warnings and precautions
Talk to your doctor or pharmacist or nurse before you are
given Ceftriaxone injection if:
• You have recently received or are about to receive
products that contain calcium.
• You have recently had diarrhoea after having an antibiotic
medicine.
• You have ever had problems with your gut, in particular
colitis (inflammation of the bowel).
• You have liver or kidney problems.
• You have gall stones or kidney stones
• You have other illnesses, such as haemolytic anaemia (a
reduction in your red blood cells that may make your skin
pale yellow and cause weakness or breathlessness).
• You are on a low sodium diet.
If you need a blood or urine test
If you are given Ceftriaxone for a long time, you may need to
have regular blood tests. Ceftriaxone can affect the results of
urine tests for sugar and a blood test known as the Coombs
test. If you are having tests:
• Tell the person taking the sample that you have been given
Ceftriaxone.
Children
Talk to your doctor or pharmacist or nurse before your child is
administered Ceftriaxone if:
• He/she has recently been given or is to be given a product

that contains calcium into their vein.
Other medicines and Ceftriaxone
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, have recently
taken or might take any other medicines.
In particular, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking
any of the following medicines:
• A type of antibiotic called an aminoglycoside.
• An antibiotic called chloramphenicol (used to treat
infections, particularly of the eyes).
Pregnancy and breast-feeding and fertility
If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, think you may be
pregnant or are planning to have a baby, ask your doctor for
advice before taking this medicine.
The doctor will consider the benefit of treating you with
Ceftriaxone against the risk to your baby.
Driving and using machines
Ceftriaxone can cause dizziness. If you feel dizzy, do not
drive or use any tools or machines. Talk to your doctor if you
experience these symptoms.
Ceftriaxone injection contains sodium
This medicine contains 0.9 mmol (250mg vial), 3.6 mmol (1g
vial) or 7.2 mmol (2g vial) of sodium. This should be taken into
consideration by patients on a controlled sodium diet. Tell
your doctor or nurse if you are on a low sodium diet.
3. How Ceftriaxone injection is given
Ceftriaxone injection is usually given by a doctor or nurse. It
can be given as a drip (intravenous infusion) or as an injection
directly into a vein or into a muscle. Ceftriaxone injection
is made up by the doctor, pharmacist or nurse and will not
be mixed with or given to you at the same time as calciumcontaining injections.
The usual dose
Your doctor will decide the correct dose of Ceftriaxone for you.
The dose will depend on the severity and type of infection;
whether you are on any other antibiotics; your weight and
age; how well your kidneys and liver are working. The number
of days or weeks that you are given Ceftriaxone depends on
what sort of infection you have.
Adults, older people and children aged 12 years and over
with a body weight greater than or equal to 50 kilograms (kg):
1 to 2 g once a day depending on the severity and type of
infection. If you have a severe infection, your doctor will give
you a higher dose (up to 4 g once a day). If your daily dose
is higher than 2 g, you may receive it as a single dose once a
day or as two separate doses.
Newborn babies, infants and children aged 15 days to 12
years with a body weight of less than 50 kg:
50-80 mg Ceftriaxone for each kg of the child’s body weight
once a day depending on the severity and type of infection.
If you have a severe infection, your doctor will give you a
higher dose up to 100 mg for each kg of body weight to a
maximum of 4 g once a day. If your daily dose is higher than
2 g, you may receive it as a single dose once a day or as two
separate doses.
Children with a body weight of 50 kg or more should be given
the usual adult dose.
Newborn babies (0-14 days)
20 – 50 mg Ceftriaxone for each kg of the child’s body weight
once a day depending on the severity and type of infection.
The maximum daily dose is not to be more than 50 mg for
each kg of the baby’s weight.
People with liver and kidney problems
You may be given a different dose to the usual dose. Your
doctor will decide how much Ceftriaxone you will need and
will check you closely depending on the severity of the liver
and kidney disease.
If you are given more Ceftriaxone than you should
If you accidentally receive more than your prescribed dose,
contact your doctor or nearest hospital straight away.
If you forget to use Ceftriaxone injection
If you miss an injection, you should have it as soon as possible.
However, if it is almost time for your next injection, skip the
missed injection. Do not take a double dose (two injections at
the same time) to make up for a missed dose.
If you stop using Ceftriaxone injection
Do not stop taking Ceftriaxone unless your doctor tells you to.
If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine,
ask your doctor or nurse.
