Linezolid, levoflox, moxiflox, for MDR TB
Azithro for resistant salmonella
Aminoglycoside for MDR TB,
Febrile neutropenia,
Other quinolonesvbecomevoff the shelf
So only amoxicillin,1st & 2nd Gen oral cephalosporin,
3rd Gen oral cephalosporin for culture positive UTIs or salmonella.
Oral clinda for staph(CA MRSA) in opd.
So choice narrowed significantly.
What say respected elitists?

CA MRSA can be treated with cotrimoxazole for opd basis.
For unstable ,empyema, septicemic patient linezolid +clinda or linezolid alone.
As linezolid also has anti endotoxin effect.?
In these cases can we choose linezolid over vancomycin?

For enterococcus decals grown on blood culture ,what is prudent
Vanco+Amikacin or Linezolid alone?

We get culture sensitivity with MICs less than 0.5 for quinoline particularly cipro and oflox and resistant to carbapenams.
How teneble is this?
What is process for of the shelf use of some drugs?
Use of rifampicin with vancomycin in neonate for ventriculitis with staph ?

ampC are covered by cefepime and cefpirome.
So can we use it to spare carbapenams.
However I do understand that these SPICE group are not producing ampC only but other betalactamases.
