Can ceftriaxone be given with artemether/lumefantrine for treatment of malaria?
As far as I know, there are no known interactions between cefriaxone and artemether/lumefantrine, and no specific contraindications. However, you should consult with a physician before taking both in combination.
Also, since ceftriaxone is usually used to treat bacterial infections, it may be that it is a better to treat the malarial infection and the concurrent bacterial infection one at a time, as heavy antibiotics in addition to the anti-malarials may stress the immune system and liver of the patient unnecessarily, particularly if the patient is already weakened.
