Drugs “Rocefin” and “Ceftriaxone” belong to the group of antibiotics that have a powder structure. The medicine “Ceftriaxone” is an analogue of “Rocefin”.
Both powders are used to create solutions, have a variety of areas of action.
The most common reasons for the introduction of a solution of drugs are either hormonal disruptions in the body, or the presence of any foreign microorganisms that adversely affect a person.
If there are contraindications for the first proposed medication only for people with hypersensitivity to a number of antibiotics, then Ceftriaxone has a huge mass. These include the following:
- Contraindications to the analogue itself are attributed to the same antibiotics from the first row.
- It is dangerous to use the medication in the first three months of pregnancy, since the fetus has not yet matured.
- At risk are nursing mothers or women in later pregnancy.
- People with kidney failure.
It is forbidden to use a medication in the treatment of premature babies, as this threatens with either death or serious injuries.

The total number of complaints, their causes, after using this drug are quite similar. These include headaches and blood stasis, a characteristic allergic manifestation.
Recommendations for choosing a drug: what and who is like
As already indicated above, there are a number of contraindications, from which it can be judged and belonging to any group of people of a particular drug.
For pregnant and lactating women throughout the entire period of pregnancy, only “Rocefin” is recommended. This drug is much more expensive than its counterpart, but its use guarantees the safety of the fetus and the health of the unborn child. The use of an analogue can provoke a miscarriage, or develop any inferiority in the fetus.
For people suffering from renal or hepatic insufficiency, it is also recommended to use “Rocefin”. The operation of the analogue can lead to negative consequences: a line of diseases provoked by exposure to a lower quality product.
If possible, children of different ages should also be given a more expensive drug, since the child’s weak immunity is simply not able to withstand the effects of an analogue that can provoke further disability or chronic forms of many diseases. In order not to be at risk and not to test the body for strength, it is better to purchase a better and more expensive product and entrust it into the hands of specialists.
In all other cases, it is allowed to use both the original and its analogue, but strictly under the supervision of a doctor. Everyone has the right to decide on the purchase of a medicine, because the first remedy costs about five hundred rubles, and the lowest cost of an analogue is thirty rubles. One should be wary of poor-quality and unverified manufacturers, especially if the health of not only an adult, but also an unborn child depends on the use of this solution.
