Sivextro (si-VEX-tro, tedizolid), a new antibiotic for methicillin-resistant Staph aureus (MRSA) skin infections

You'll see Sivextro (si-VEX-tro, tedizolid), a new antibiotic for methicillin-resistant Staph aureus (MRSA) skin infections.

Think of Sivextro as similar to Zyvox (linezolid).

Both are saved as a last resort...when other antibiotics (doxycycline, TMP/SMX, etc) don't work or can't be used.
