Ceftriaxone works by interfering with the ability of bacteria to form cell walls. The cell walls of bacteria are vital for their survival. They keep unwanted substances from entering their cells and stop the contents of their cells from leaking out. Ceftriaxone impairs the bonds that hold the bacterial cell wall together. This allows holes to appear in the cell walls and kills the bacteria.

Ceftriaxone is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that kills a wide variety of bacteria. Ceftriaxone is given by injection to treat serious infections of the upper and lower airways, blood, skin and soft tissue. It may also be used to treat meningitis and to prevent it in contacts of people with meningitis.

To make sure the bacteria causing an infection are susceptible to ceftriaxone your doctor may take a tissue sample, for example a swab from the throat or skin, or a urine or blood sample.
