Claforan IV

Available by prescription only, Claforan® (cefotaxime) is a type of antibiotic approved to treat a variety of different infections. It is approved for use in adults and children as young as newborns. As part of a group of drugs called cephalosporins, Claforan works by stopping bacteria from making cell walls, which eventually causes the bacteria to die.
 
Claforan is given by a slow injection into a vein (IV) or by intramuscular (IM) injection. It can be given as a single dose for less serious infections, or it may be given as multiple doses every 4 to 12 hours for more serious infections. For serious infections, it is usually best to give Claforan by IV rather than by intramuscular injection.
