Same as azithromycin (respiratory pathogens)PO
Gram – rods including Pseudomonas (but there is increasing resistance to it), B. Anthracis (anthrax), STDs (NOT syphillis or gonorrhea) IV/PO
Gram - NOT including Proteus or Pseudomonas, Useful for enterococcus (especially vancomycin resistant infections)N/A
Streptococci, Staphylococci, Enteric GNR, Acinetobacter, Pseudomonas, AnaerobesIV

Broad spectrum covering staph and mycobacteriumN/A
Gram + (strep and staph), Anaerobic organismsN/A
Respiratory Gram +, Mycoplasma, Chlamydia, Legionella (intracellular pathogens), Helicobacter/Campilobacter (Gram -)IV/PO
Very good against Gram + including StaphN/A
Gram +, abx resistant bacteria: MRSA, Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium, but not E.faecalis IV/PO
