Organisms AffectedAntibioticMethod of Delivery
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
Streptococci, Staphylococci, Enteric GNRPO
C. difficile, Vancomycin resistant EnterocicciPO
Gram – rods including Pseudomonas (but there is increasing resistance to it), B. Anthracis (anthrax), STDs (NOT syphillis or gonorrhea) IV/PO
Broad Spectrum, Much less resistance, Does not treat pseudomonasIV
Streptococci, Treponema, Oral Anaerobes, Haemophilus, Listeria, Enteric GNR, Pseudomonas IV
Streptococci, Staphylococci, Enteric GNRIV
Streptococci, Treponema, Oral Anaerobes, Haemophilus, Listeria, Enteric GNR, Pseudomonas IV

Erythyromycin + (less resistant), Atypical Mycobacteria infections (not TB)PO
Respiratory Gram +, Mycoplasma, Chlamydia, Legionella (intracellular pathogens), Helicobacter/Campilobacter (Gram -)IV/PO
GNR not anaerobes (includes situations where the environment is anaerobic like intra-abdominal abscesses), PseudomonasN/A
More potent against Gram +, Less potent against Gram - , More Anaerobes (oral)IV/PO
Staphylococci only!IV
Broad spectrum for gram positive and gram negative organisms in the urinary tractN/A
Streptococci, Staphylococci, Enteric GNRIV
Streptococci, Treponema, Oral Anaerobes, Haemophilus, ListeriaIV/PO
Good for streptococcal infections, Gram – and Pseudomonas, Mycoplasma/Chlamydia/Legionella (good for respiratory pathogens)IV/PO
Oral AnaerobesPO
Same as clarithromycin, but particulary effective for those with Chlamydia infectionIV/PO
Vancomycin resistant Gram +IV
Streptococci, Staphylococci, Enteric GNR, HaemophilusIV/PO
Same as azithromycin (respiratory pathogens)PO
Intrcellular Bacteria, StaphylococciIV/PO
