SINGLE IM injection of ceftriaxone (Rocephin) for ear infections

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

    This isn't an approved indication yet in the U.S. or Canada.

    But there's growing evidence that ceftriaxone is as effective as 10 days of oral amoxicillin...cefaclor...or trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole.
