Hi,
Cifran ct contain ciprofloxacin and tinidazole. Former mainly acts on gram negative n later upon anarobes ( mostly covers micro organism causing loose stool) . Ceftriaxone is 3rd generation cefalosporine and act upon gm positive n gm negative bacteria so adding up ll increase the spectrum of action and both can be given .

Hope this ll help

THANKS N REGARDS
