Full Prescribing Info
Ceftriaxone sodium.
Each vial contains: Ceftriaxone (as sodium) 1 g.
Trizone, the brand of Ceftriaxone, is long acting, broad-spectrum Cephalosporin antibiotic.
The bacterial activity of Ceftriaxone results from inhibition of cell wall synthesis. Ceftriaxone exerts in vitro activity against a wide range of gram-negative and gram-positive microorganisms. Ceftriaxone is highly stable to most β-lactamase, both Penicillinases, of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.
 Treatment lower respiratory tract infections, skin and skin structure infections, bone and joint infections, intra-abdominal and urinary tract infections, sepsis and meningitis due to susceptible organism; documented or suspected infection due to susceptible organism in home care patients at high risk for bacteremia, periorbital or buccal cellulities, salmonellosis or shigellosis, and pneumonia of unestablished etiology (<5 years of age).
Dosage/Direction for Use
Adults and children over 12 years: The usual dosage is 1-2 g once daily. In severe cases, the dosage may be raised to 4 g once daily.
Neonates: A daily dose of 20-50 mg/kg body weight.
Infants and children up to 12 years: A daily dose of 20-80 mg/kg.
Impaired renal and liver function: Only in cases of preterminal renal failure (creatinine clearance <10 mL/min.) should the Ceftriaxone (Trizone) dosage not exceed 2g daily. In cases of concomitant severe renal and hepatic dysfunction, the plasma concentration of Ceftriaxone (Trizone) should be determined at regular intervals.
Administration of Ceftriaxone (Trizone) should be continued for a minimum of 48-72 hours.
Synergy between Ceftriaxone (Trizone) and Aminoglycosides has been demonstrated with gram-negative bacilli. Because of physical incompatibility the two drugs must be given separately at the recommended dosages.
Ceftriaxone (Trizone) is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to the cephalosporins. The possibility of allergic cross-reactions should be borne in mind patients hypersensitive to Penicillins.
