Cefoxitin Overview

  • Cefoxitin injection is used to treat infections caused by bacteria including pneumonia and other lower respiratory tract (lung) infections; and urinary tract, abdominal (stomach area), female reproductive organs, blood, bone, joint, and skin infections. Cefoxitin injection may also be used before and during surgery, in order to prevent the patient from getting an infection. Cefoxitin injection is in a class of medications called cephamycin antibiotics. It works by killing bacteria.

  • Antibiotics such as cefoxitin injection will not work for colds, flu, or other viral infections. Taking antibiotics when they are not needed increases your risk of getting an infection later that resists antibiotic treatment.
