1. because doctor has PRESCRIBED you, it means that probably drug given you is in oral form.
2. anyways simply 'pancef' implies to injectable form of antibiotic group Cephalosporin i.e. Ceftriaxone which is given intramuscularly in uncomplicated gonorrhea and prophylaxis of secondary meningococcal meningitis,whereas given intravenously in typhoid fever.
3. Contraindications: hypersensitivity to cephalosporins, do not use calcium or calcium containing solutions or products with or within 48 hr of administration of ceftriaxone due to risk of calcium-ceftriaxone precipitate formation.
4.Special Precautions: history of penicillin allergy,severe renal impairment,pregnancy and lactation
5. Interaction: disulfiram like reaction with alcohol, nephrotoxicity with aminoglycosides and furosemide.
6. Adverse Drug Reaction: anaphylaxis,blood dyscariasis,diarrhoea,rash,fever,pruritus,elevated trasaminases and alkaline phosphatase,leucopenia,neutropenia,pseudomembraneous colitis, nephrotoxicity.
