Rocephin is an antibiotic that lasts nearly 24 hours. Without evaluating you in person, I couldn't say with certainty whether or not your doctor's plan made sense for you, but I can say that his/her management of your sore throat was highly unusual--to the point that I'd encourage you to consider a 2nd in-person medical opinion. (Some physicians I know derogatorily call Rocephin, "Vitamin C" because Rocephin's generic name begins with a "c" and because there are lots of physicians out there who--inappropriately--throw it willy-nilly at everyone with a fever, contributing to unnecessary medical expenditures, pain, and antibiotic-resistance.) However, barring that plan, yes--you should consider seeing at least some doctor again. Your doctor might also want to send a Monospot to test for mono. Viruses are common causes of sore throat. A third (*MUCH* rarer) bacterial cause of sore throat is gonorrhea. Answered by Berry Vankomen 4 months ago.

I've been sick for a few days and I've pretty much so been in bed every since I've not been up moving much at all. Today I decided I would go to the doctor seeing how I wasn't getting any better, which my doctor is an hour drive away. Well I go to the doctor come to find out I have Pneumonia, so I get a wonderful rocephin shot along with more meds. By the time I get home today my head is killing me and my neck is stiff which it hasn't been at all, I'm wondering could this be from the injection? I have not got my other meds filled yet so that is all I have taken is that shot. I wasn't sure if may neck being stiff was possibly from the drive today where I hadn't even been sitting up much since I've been sick or if its from the shot because my head was also killing me by the time I arrived home. I took a Tylenol after getting home and my head is still hurting and by the time I got home the doctors office was closed so I couldn't call and ask them either. Any help would be appreciated very much. Answered by Sade Maslanka 4 months ago.
Rocephin should not be causing your headache. Rocephin is a penicillin (actually a cephalosporin which is related to pens) and if you are allergic to it, headache is NOT a symptom of hypersensitivity When I read your post the first thing I thought was your pneumonia might becoming meningitis which is potentially much more dangerous than pneumonia. I would go right back to your doctor and tell them you are getting a stiff neck and bad headaches. Whatever it is, I doubt it is the Rocephin (an excellent drug, btw) Source: I am a pharmacist Answered by Ladawn Miraglia 4 months ago.
Hello~~~ Sounds like we need to find you a good primary care doctor but to answer your question, "Nodules found on your lung and spleen, could this be CANCER? and the answer is YES...anything is possible...... I can win the lotto tomorrow and 2012 could be the end of the world....but like your cancer hypothesis unlikely but not impossible. It sounds like you had a lot of non specific symptoms that can be associated with infection, cancer or autoimmune disease. by the looks of your white count it appears to be infectious in etiology but the chronicity seems little unusual..... and the choice of antibiotics appears to be treating a pneumonia.... obviously I don't have the clinical information to make that diagnosis but if this is indeed pneumonia you can have radiographic changes but not discrete nodule like you are describing but 5mm is pretty darn small..... In conclusion, follow up with pulmonologist, get a CT scan in six months to make sure it has not grown and go easy on these laboratory test because you need to have a clear questions prior to ordering so you know what to do after you get these results. Recommendation, find a good internal medicine doctor. Answered by Berta Sproles 4 months ago.
What does rocephin treat?
Asked by China Loncaric 4 months ago.
Rocephin is a tradename for Ceftriaxone, a member (third generation) of the family of cephalosporins. What this all means is that it is a broad spectrum antibiotic, effective against a wide range of bacteria alsost anywhere, including the brain (in meningitis) since it is able to cross the barrier between the blood and the brain. When in doubt as to the cause of infection, broad spectrum antibiotics tend to be the drugs of choice. Answered by Orpha Hultz 4 months ago.

Asked by Kasie Silbiger 4 months ago.
Rocephin is a 3rd generation Cephalosporin..it is from the same family of Penicillin (the way it works)..but it is very strong.. do, they just give it from specific infections...and not used as a first line treatment..(in most of the cases)..so it depends for which reason they will give it to you.... and about the duration, they can give it up to 10 days.. Don't worry about the normal flora..it quickly recolonizes your GI tract since the duration (7 days ) is not a main issue here.. Answered by Leif Fehringer 4 months ago.
Hard lump under my rocephin injection site after a month...?

About a month ago I came down with a really bad infection in my throat. I went to the Urgent Care facility here and they prescribed me antibiotics and gave my a shot of Rocephin in my right butt cheek. The injection hurt (duh) but I'd had it before so I wasn't worried. Turns out I had a terrible infection in my tonsils and a case of mono (fun times, I assure you) and was in the ER for 6 hours later that same day getting IV fluids and antibiotics. To make a long story short, it's been about 3 1/2 weeks since the shot of Rocephin and I'm still feeling tender at the injection site. I had this same thing when I had the shot before for tonsillitis but the tenderness went away after about 1 1/2 weeks. There is a hard lump underneath the surface of my skin, about the size of a small marble. It really hurts when I palpate around the area. I know I'm probably making a mountain out of a molehill, but after the last time I had something wrong with me I just want to be sure, especially now that it's been almost a month and I'm still feeling pain there. I'm anticipating a lot of 'don't worry, it's nothing' responses, but really I just want to know what this is and if there is anything I can do to alleviate the pain. It's not all the time; usually when I sit a certain way. But today it did start hurting while I was standing and talking to someone, which never happened the previous time I had this. Any helpful answers will be greatly appreciated. Answered by Burma Yglesias 4 months ago.
Rocephin is one of the most painful IM injections. Lumps after IM Rocephin injections are very common (17%). The lumps can take a few weeks to months to go away. Often warm compresses and over-the-counter pain relievers can help. In rare cases, these lumps could be pockets of infection. As the pain is getting worse, I would call the doctor for further advice.

The following works for sinus, cold, running nose, sore throat and strep throat, when the throat is hurting and lot of other conditions. The most visible thing about sinus is swelling. In case of cold, sore throat, strep throat also swelling is there but to some extent less then it is visible in sinus. Sinus, cold and sore throat usually happen in the following situations - - Change of season, drinking lot of water after exercises, when u get up in the morning, after swimming, after having first sex, kissing, first time smoking etc. The reason - During winters our body stores less water. This is evident from loss of water from body evident from frequent urination. Normally the body adjusts the water stored in the body automatically. But due to drinking water with meals or shortly after meals, the systems responsible for controlling the water level in the body stops working properly. The same thing happens when u get up in the morning - When one drinks lot of water with dinner and sleeps shortly after dinner the body tends to store lot of water. The same is not adjusted suitably when one gets up in the morning. The same thing happens after swimming the body is heated up and cooled at the same time. It a person allows sweating after a swimming session and does not drink water or does not take a shower in cold water sore throat may not happen. After having first sex, kissing, first time smoking people tend to either overeat, drink lot of water and sleep immediately so sinus. Lot of people in their questions mentioned that they were advised about eating ice cream to get rid of the sinus or sore throat. Yes sudden eating of the ice cream may force the body's system to get up and start working. But that happens only 10 to 20 percent cases. And if that does not happen the sore throat or sinus is aggrevated. The easier way out is to allow body to sweat for 1 or 2 hour by increasing the body temperature but not drinking water or other fluids for may be 1 hour after that. The other easy way to control swelling is to give up water and all other liquids for 24 hours. In 24 hours there will be no significant dehydration to cause organ failure. But to be double sure one can stay indoors for 24 hours. This helps in lot of other ailments. One can do it when one is in indoors and does not have a conditions. It improves the immune system. It ensures that body's control systems work properly. In 24 hours the reduction in the fluids will be about 3 litres or about 5% of the total body weight of a normal adult. Never the swelling due to sinus or cold and cough is more than 5% of the body volume. During this period of 24 hours the lose of water from the body does not reduce even by 1% to offset reduced water intake. The reduction in loss of body water thru urine or sweating starts after 48 hours in most of people. But to be on safe side giving up water and liquids for 24 hours will do the trick. The reduced swelling will give immediate relief from pain. It will make is much more easier to eliminate the cough thru nose without any pain. That will also improve the blood acid levels by about 10%. This makes changes at the cell level as well. Blood acid levels are the first line of defense against the infections. So swelling gone, pain gone, cough moving out, infections taken care of. Now what remains in the body for the next change of season time. Obviously nothing. So it has already given u long term relief from sinus. But in some cases one may get sinus during next change of season and may have to do this again. The reason is during change of season the body must adjust the water that is stored in the body. Due to some cell level changes the ability of the body to bring those changes is lost. But after 2-3 seasons that ability of the body will be restored and there will be complete relief from sinus. There is one more thing that will ensure that u never get sinus or cold again in your life. Drink 1 glass of water 1 hour before each meal. No other water or liquids on 4-5 days in a week. So on these days you do not exceed 3 glasses of water in 24 hours. On rest 2-3 days do whatever u feel like. Answered by Danna Gavinski 4 months ago.

10 minutes following the initial infusion of Rocephin (IV push over about 5 minutes via PICC line for the treatment of Lyme disease), I had a seizure. How common are seizures as side effects of Rocephin? By what mechanism does medication lead to a seizure? Is it possible that I would have the same reaction again, if the method of administation were changed to drip (maybe over the course of an hour) rather than IV push? Answered by Joaquina Voges 4 months ago.
Seizures are listed as a RARE side effect of Rocephin. In Lexi-Comp (medicine database), it lists seizure as a possible side effect (along with 100+ other rare side effects), and states that all of them occur in less than 1% of patients. I don't think anybody knows the exact mechanism (sorry). But it is possible that you would have the same reaction again, though nobody can really know. Its not an allergy, but a very rare side effect. Lyme disease has neurological effects and it is possible that it lowered your seizure threshold to a point making you more susceptible to having a seizure. In this case, you would probably not have a seizure again with Rocephin in the future...for other infections, etc. But I don't think anybody will tell you that they are positive about this. And yes...it is very possible (and likely) that administration of it over a longer period of time would lessen the likelihood of you having a seizure...but again, nothing can be guaranteed... Not a whole lot of help, but at least an attempt.... Answered by Jacinda Lowy 4 months ago.

After a shot of Rocephin, you are considered no longer contagious after 24 hours from the time of the shot. You are not healed at this point but are not contagious. Your younger child has probably already been exposed before the other child was treated. Answered by Gudrun Plansinis 4 months ago.

Rocephin is a cephalosporin antibiotic - to kill the bacteria causing your infection. Will you be in the hospital for this treatment or make visits for each dose?? There's nothing to be scared about, an IV isn't comfortable, but the insertion is the most painful part..and the antibiotic itself has very little side effects (stomach upset being the main one).
