Ceftriaxone Benefits: It possesses serious activity against gram negativity organisms and also penetrates the CSF in concentrations andis first choice in the treatment of meningitis. Ceftriaxone Injection is an antibacterial drug used to treat conditions such as lower respiratory tract infections, skin and skin structure infections, urinary tract infections, pelvic inflammatory disease, bacterial septicaemia, bone and joint infections, Intraabdominal infections, and meningitis.It works by stopping the growth of bacteria and interfering with the formation of bacterial cell walls. Also impairs the bonds that holds the bacterial semi permeable membrane together, which allows holes to appear in the cell walls. This kills off the bacteria causing the infection.
Sulbactum Benefits: Sulbactum inhibits the beta lactamase degradation of ceftriaxone and enhance the killing by ceftriaxome. It binds to the enzyme and does not allow it to degrade the antibiotic.Since the development of beta lactamase provides resistance against bacteria and hence this combination of ceftriaxone and sulbatum is called as beta lactamase inhibitor.
Consult your doctor if you observe any of the side-effects, especially if they do not go away like dizziness, rashes, fever, headache or pain at the site of injection.
