Took it twice a day intravenously every 12 hours . I had a pump that got the meds into my vein. My night time dose was at 9:30 pm so I was often already asleep. I did not experience any side-effects, but it did get itchy by the last day just by being covered for that long. Having the pump meant I could leave the hospital sooner and recuperate in my own home.

My 77 y/o diabetic mom had total left knee replacement surgery 6/25/13. 2 wks after surgery, she developed severe incision redness & went to ER for 6 hrs. They took xrays, did blood work, sent her home w/oral Keflex prescription. 3 days later had return appt w/Ortho surgeon who immediately placed her on at-home IV antibiotic for 10 days. At 7/25 return appt w/Ortho surgeon,said infection wasn't responding to the antibiotic & immediately admitted her to hospital for surgery to clean, etc the wound. She was in for 6 nites. Culture showed Morganella Morganii bacteria. She's got a PICC line IV, is homebound for 6 wks at-home administration of 1 x daily Ceftriaxone (which per her labs is working well), after completion of this therapy she'll transition to oral CIPRO for min 6-12 wks. There's 30% chance of bacteria returning. Scary, but thank goodness for the meds. Other than developing 2 groin boils/welts due to antibiotic(s) she's doing well and this med is working.
