Each vial contains:Ceftriaxone sodium (Sterile) equivalent to ceftriaxone 1.0G/0.5G.
Ceftriaxone is a broad-spectrum cephalosporin with a long plasma elimination half-life of approximately 8 hours in normal adults.
Infections caused by pathogens sensitive to ceftriaxone such as
meningitis in neonates and infants
perioperative prophylaxis of infections
renal and urinary tract infections
respiratory tract infections, particularly pneumonia, and ear, nose and throat infections.
infections of the bones, joints, soft tissue, skin and of wounds.
abdominal infections (peritonitis, infections of the biliary tract).
Allergy to cephalosporins. In patients hypersensitive to penicillin, the possibility of allergic cross reactions
should be borne in mind.
Pregnancy and Lactation
Safety in human pregnancy has not been established. As ceftriaxone is excreted in the breast milk at low
concentrations, caution is advised in nursing mothers.
Before therapy with Oframax is instituted, careful inquiry should be made to determine whether the patient
has had previous hypersensitivity reactions to cephalosporins, penicillins or other medicines. About 10% of
penicillin- sensitive patients may also be allergic to cephalosporins although the true incidence is uncertain.
Great care should be taken if Oframax is to be given to such patients.
DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Adults and children over twelve: 1-2g ceftriaxone once daily (every 24 hours).
In severe infections and in cases in which the pathogens are only moderately sensitive to ceftriaxone, the
daily dosage may be increased to 4 g administered daily.
Infants and young children may receive from 20-80 mg per kg body-mass daily; depending on the severity of the infection, usually 12-24 hourly.
In cases of premature babies, the daily dosage should not exceed 50 mg per kg body mass on account of the
immaturity of the infant’s enzyme systems.
