General Information on Using CefotetanSome considerations to keep in mind during treatment with cefotetan include the following:
- This medication is given by IV or by intramuscular injection. It is usually given every 12 to 24 hours.
- For serious infections, it is usually best to give this drug by IV, rather than by intramuscular injection.
- This antibiotic is often given for a few days after the infection has cleared up. For serious infections, an even longer treatment may be recommended.
