SINGLE IM injection of ceftriaxone (Rocephin) for ear infections

    More physicians are using a SINGLE IM injection of ceftriaxone (Rocephin) for ear infections.

    It's about as effective as 10 days of oral amoxicillin...cefaclor...or trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole.

    A single dose works because ceftriaxone has a long half-life. It's also used for gonorrhea and pelvic inflammatory disease.
