Zyvox (linezolid) for Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus Infection: “Within 12 hours this potent drug is a beast, it gets in theRE and knocks the hell out of MRSA. Rationing of these MRSA staph infection drugs is unacceptable when you’ve been verified by lab. The stuff coming out of my nose looked like movie alien. It was wicked to get my first dose of ZYVOX. I was relieved I got it. I got it after CAT scans, 3 more hours ER, I was quarantined at ER. Well that’s my nightmare of MRSA. Just demand ZYVOX your only downside is diarrhea so get some Pepto and immodium. It is a small price to get rid of MRSA. It’s amazing my nasal passages are open I can breathe.”

For Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus Infection: “I’m taking oral Linezolid, 600 mg. Dosage is every 12 hours. I’m in a rehab center for an amputation below the knee. I’m 61 year old male with type 2 diabetes. At first I felt nothing, but now into my 13th day, I feel nauseous at times, loss of appetite, and tired/sleepy. I also feel weaker than before and harder to do my physical therapy. I can’t wait for my 14 day period to end.”

Zyvox (linezolid) for Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus Infection: “I have osteomyelitis of temporal bone. In the hospital for 1 wk, sent home on IV Vancomycin & Cephrine. After 4 wks back to Hospital for chills & fever. In for a wk, low blood & increased iron…all due to IV. Sent home on Zyvox & Levaquin for 30 days, hoping infection has cleared (will find out after finish meds). Side effects: nausea, diarrhea, dizziness, cannot eat as nothing taste right, GERD, pressure in the sterum area, extremely tired, short of breath, yeast infection, insomnia, muscle & joint aches, emotional and today red spots on skin. Needless to say I feel horrible! Hopefully this will all be over soon but don’t feel I will ever be the same. If this works then it’s an amazing, wonderful drug. However, it’s very expensive. Thank goodness for patient assistance!”

Zyvox (linezolid) for Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus Infection: “I am a CF patient that has MRSA in my lungs. Any time I have a flareup, I’m always given oral Zyvox and it knocks the infection out quickly and keeps it away for months! Great drug, minimal side effects, very rare for resistance to develop, etc. Only downside is the price, but luckily my insurance covers it with just a 1 dollar or so copay.”
