Hi,

The recommended duration of taxim therapy is about 14 days. Taxim is commonly prescribed to treat or prevent prosthetic joint infections caused by susceptible bacteria. It is usually given for about 14 days followed by a course of oral antibiotics if needed.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Mohammed Taher Ali
