Does Ceftriaxone Sodium Chloride spoil despite refrigeration?

I am taking ceftriaxone sodium chloride, 0.8 percent through a pic line. I just took it out of the refrigerator and the liquid looks slightly orange. I thought it should be clear, but I can t remember. I have 3 more doses to take and all 3 look the same. What should I do

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The color sounds normal. You should keep them in temperature determined by manufacturer in the leaflet. Before injecting them make sure to shake them well and to check if they're not cold.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
