Ceftaroline comes in vials of the dry medication to be mixed with an appropriate liquid before use. Unmixed ceftaroline vials should be stored under refrigeration, although they can be left at room temperature for up to seven days.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose of Ceftaroline?
If you miss an appointment to receive a ceftaroline dose, contact your healthcare provider right away. He or she will tell you what to do next. Try not to miss doses, as this increases the chance of developing an infection that is resistant to antibiotic treatment.
