Monocef 500 mg injection is a cephalosporin antibacterial prescribed for treating infections caused by bacteria. These infections include lower urinary tract infections, acute bacterial otitis media (ear infection), complicated and uncomplicated urinary tract infections, skin and skin structure infections, pelvic inflammatory disease, intra-abdominal infections, uncomplicated gonorrhoea, bone and joint infections, meningitis (swelling of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord), and surgical prophylaxis.
The injection is applicable for intravenous use for only approximately thirty minutes.
The doctor usually gives Monocef. It can be administered as an injection directly into a vein or into a muscle. The injection should be prepared by your doctor and will not be mixed with calcium-containing injections. He will decide the correct dose of Monocef injection for you. The dose depends on the severity and type of infection, whether you take any other antibiotic, your weight and age, and how well your liver and kidney work. The duration for which you are given ceftriaxone injection depends on what sort of infection you have.
For adults, older people, and children aged 12 years and over with a body weight more than or equal to 50 kg, 1 g once daily, depending on the severity and type of infection. If you are dealing with a severe infection, your doctor will give you a higher dose. If your daily dose is higher than 2 g, you may receive the injection as a single dose once daily or as two separate doses.
Consult a doctor to know the right dosage that suits you.
Cross hypersensitivity may occur in patients with a history of penicillin allergy. If an allergic reaction develops, discontinue treatment. Do not administer ceftriaxone injection simultaneously with calcium-containing intravenous solutions. Diarrhoea that may range from mild to fatal colitis may occur. Severe cases of anaemia, including fatalities in adults and children, have been reported in clinical trials; if anaemia is reported, discontinue treatment, and talk to your doctor.
Monocef is generally tolerated. During Ceftiaxone treatment, side effects were reversible either spontaneously or after withdrawal of the drug has been observed. These side effects were nausea, vomiting, loose stools, glossitis, stomatitis, and complications associated with white blood cells. Report suspected adverse reactions to your doctor, especially when they persist for longer or become bothersome.
