Reconstituted antibiotic virals

I just want to ask about injecting of a refrigerated reconstituted antibiotic vial e.g. Ceftriaxone after withdrawing half of its content and keeping the other half in the refrigerator for 24 hr knowing that it is stable -according to the company's pamphlet- for 2 days in the refrigerator

It is stable for 24 hours, after which any unsued medicine should be discarded as the efficiency comes down after reconstituting the vial medicine. Do not use it.
