Streptococci, Staphylococci, Enteric GNR, AnaerobesIV
GNR not anaerobes (includes situations where the environment is anaerobic like intra-abdominal abscesses), PseudomonasN/A
Staphylococci only!IV
Gram positive spectrum – can be used to treat organisms that are resistant to β-lactams and glycopeptides, Resistant Gram +, VR-MRSAN/A

Used primarily in multi-drug resistant TuberculosisN/A

Broad Spectrum ActivityN/A
Kills gram positive organismsN/A
Respiratory Gram +, Mycoplasma, Chlamydia, Legionella (intracellular pathogens), Helicobacter/Campilobacter (Gram -)IV/PO
Gram – rods including Pseudomonas (but there is increasing resistance to it), B. Anthracis (anthrax), STDs (NOT syphillis or gonorrhea) IV/PO
