Drug Third generation cephalosporins mnemonic



I just came out with this mnemonic that includes all of the third generation cephalosporins. Lets see what do you think about it.

"I Fixed my iPod with the Butter TriaTizox for the Taxi Dime Opera"

Which means:


I
Fixed = CeFixme
my
iPod = CefPodoxime
with
the
Butter = CeftiButen
TriaTizox = CefTriaxone and Ceftizoxime
for
the
Taxi = CefoTaxime
Dime = CeftaziDime
Opera = CefOperazone

And there it is...

I hope that it can help you guys~~~
