Bacteria Home > Ceftriaxone Drug Interactions

Drug interactions with ceftriaxone can cause your body to metabolize the medicines differently than intended. This can sometimes significantly increase the amount of ceftriaxone in your system. Warfarin, probenecid, and sulfinpyrazone are a few of the drugs that can interfere with ceftriaxone. Talk with your healthcare provider or pharmacist about any ceftriaxone drug interactions that may apply to you.

Ceftriaxone Drug Interactions: An Introduction

Ceftriaxone (Rocephin®) can interact with a number of medicines. Drugs that can interact with ceftriaxone include, but are not limited to, the following:
 
Warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven)
If you are taking ceftriaxone and warfarin, your body may metabolize the drugs differently than intended. You healthcare provider may choose to monitor your INR and prothrombin time more frequently and adjust accordingly. INR and prothrombin time are tests used to measure how well your blood clots.
 
Probenecid (Benemid, Probalan)
If you are taking both ceftriaxone and probenecid, your body may metabolize the drugs differently than intended and significantly increase the amount of ceftriaxone in your system. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your progress more closely and adjust your dosage accordingly.
