Rocephin (ceftriaxone) for Urinary Tract Infection: “Tried posting this on my iPad yesterday and the day before but it did not seem to post. I have been getting Rocephin injections for UTIs for about 10 years. Initially after trying pill antibiotics over a over with little success, my OB recommended the shot. I am extremely needle phobic and was very reluctant to agree to a shot in my butt, but convinced myself to suck it up. First it is a little embarrassing to be bent over a table with a bare butt , next the shot really hurts and burns. Your butt is sore or about 1 hour afterward. But it works. A few days ago I had symptoms of a UTI and ignored them. My husband convinced me to stop being a baby and go get the shot! I finally gave in and saw my doctor. I received one rocephin injection in my right cheek and a B12 shot in my other butt cheek. 5-6 hours later I felt fine although my bottom is still a little sore. I need to get over this fear of needles! Don’t watch when they prepare it. But I would recommend this shot.”

Rocephin (ceftriaxone) for Pneumonia: “I had been to hospital with some pretty bad pneumonia. They were in the process of discharging me when the nurse gave me the shot. Let me be clear I have NEVER EVER felt such a painful shot in my life. Holy cow it felt like I had broken my arm and I couldn’t move it for at least 30 minutes after. Nurse said to rub it out and luckily it didn’t hurt too bad the next day.”

Rocephin (ceftriaxone) for Pneumonia: “‘Came down with what seemed like a bad bout of influenza on a Friday night. Absent from work Monday, and Tuesday. Wednesday and my cough is dry, chest heavy, gurgling sound in my chest. I thought it was wheezing, but that sound didn’t go away even after inhalers. I regret returning to work on Wednesday, but I’ve used up my sick time. Doctor gave me Rocephin on Thursday morning. By Thursday evening, I’m feeling good enough to be bored and wanting to return to work! The creators of this medicine deserve Nobel Prize!”

For Urinary Tract Infection: “Just got the flu shot yesterday 10/23/17 prior to that I had a UTI with this medicine that I used for two weeks. Three days went by and now I have it back. I don’t blame the medicine I blame the flu shot.”

Rocephin (ceftriaxone) for Pneumonia: “Went to the doctor on a Monday with what I thought was sinuses acting up. They thought the same…by the next day I Had a bad cough and didn’t even feel like moving any muscle. I stayed on the couch for 2 days with a fever ranging from 100-102! I finally forced myself to go see the doctor again on Wednesday and yup pneumonia. They gave me a rocephin shot in office and also a prescription for a z pack! Time I got home an hour later my fever had dropped to around 99 and 30 minutes later it was back to normal. Woke up the next day and thought man I could go to work (not very smart thinking on my end) I made it through work but it wore me out. The doctor had me come back Saturday for another rocephin shot and today I feel more back to normal.”
