Organisms AffectedAntibioticMethod of Delivery
Broad Spectrum ActivityN/A
Gram +, abx resistant bacteria: MRSA, Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium, but not E.faecalis IV/PO
Gram positive spectrum – can be used to treat organisms that are resistant to β-lactams and glycopeptides, Resistant Gram +, VR-MRSAN/A
Same as azithromycin (respiratory pathogens)PO
