ZYVOX: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

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 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!”

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.”

For Skin and Structure Infection “I have been on IV Zyvox for almost 2 weeks now. I have a bone infection. I have been on SEVERAL IV antibiotics and this is the last one we are trying. I am experiencing side effects (nausea, vomiting, very loose stools several times a day, stomach pain, headache) but am trying to push through the pain as I am scheduled to come off the Zyvox on Dec. 7th.”
