How should I receive streptomycin?

Streptomycin can be administered intravenously or intramuscularly. Your doctor will choose the best site for injection, depending on whether you will have a series of injections or just one. If you need multiple injections, your doctor will use multiple sites. For adults, the injection site will likely be in the top of your right buttock or in the middle of one of your thighs. Children will be injected in the thigh, but infants may be injected in the outermost top part of one buttock.
