1 Answer:

Hello my sister, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.

Doctors certainly have certain clinical considerations to provide all treatment. Cefazolin is a class of the first generation cefalosporin antibiotics (this generation is active against gram-positive cocci type bacteria); while cefotaxim is a third-generation cephalosporin antibiotic agent (the generation is more active against gram-negative and broader bacteria, but its properties against staphylococcal bacteria are low). Both of these antibiotics have different properties where one is more against gram-positive bacteria (and coccus bacteria) while the other one is gram-negative (and weak against staphylococcal bacteria). Both of these drugs do not have significant drug interactions (can be used together).


All of our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful.
