Case reports have suggested that the commonly used antibiotic dicloxacillin
reduces warfarin's anticoagulant effects, but no studies have examined the issue, said Anton Pottegard, Ph.
Key clinical point: The antibiotic dicloxacillin
appears to markedly decrease INR levels in patients using warfarin.
14(400 mg/5 mL) Mupirocin 53 NS NS Dicloxacillin
vs 100 tabs dicloxacillin
(250 mg): $66 Mupirocin 13 NS NS Ampicillin vs 100 tabs ampicillin (500 mg): $39.
Photocatalytic mineralization of wastewater polluted with commercial dicloxacillin
in a pilot-scale solar CPC reactor
, clindamycin, cephelexin, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, and amoxicillin/sulbactam have been recommended as initial oral therapy for mild infections.
Penicillinaseresistant penicillins such as flucloxacillin (250-500 mg 6-hourly for 10-14 days) and dicloxacillin
are the antibiotics of choice, or cephalexin and clindamycin in women allergic to penicillin.
500 mg tid for 7 days following culture and sensitivity and analgesics, a combination of Diclofenac 50 mg and Paracetamol 500 mg tid was prescribed for 10 days.
Broncho-alveolar lavage (BAL) fluid demonstrated gram-positive cocci in tetrads, and intravenous vancomycin and dicloxacillin
were added to therapy.
We have tried several antibiotics like dicloxacillin
, angmentin, ciproffaxacin, cyclosporin, etc.
Table 2 Antibiotic Therapy for CA-MRSA SSTIs Empiric Beta-lactams: Oxacillin, dicloxacillin
, amoxicillin-clavulanate, cephalexin Culture-proven MRSA guided by susceptibility report Nonbeta-lactams: Clindamycin, TMP-SMX, rifampin (only in combination with other agents), linezolid For mild to moderate illness with no significant co-morbidities and low community prevalence.
Pasteurella organisms are not susceptible to cephalexin or dicloxacillin
, he said.
Treatment would consist of penicillin, dicloxacillin
, amoxicillin, ticarcillin, methicillin, or vancomycin for a highly resistant bacteria strain (Gilbert, Moellering, Eliopoulos, & Sande, 2005).
The good news about the community-acquired strain is that while resistant to the usual anti-Staph drugs like cephalexin (Keflex) or dicloxacillin
(Dynapen, Diclox), it can be cured by some common, older antibiotics.
The first case was in a premature (1,180 g at birth) quadruplet born to an Algerian mother who developed mastitis the day after delivery and was treated with dicloxacillin
Nafcillin is changed to dicloxacillin
500 mg orally every hours when the patient is tolerating liquids by mouth.
