Organisms AffectedAntibioticMethod of Delivery
Broad Spectrum , Intracellular BacteriaIV/PO
Streptococci, Staphylococci, Enteric GNR, Acinetobacter, Pseudomonas, AnaerobesIV
GNR not anaerobes (includes situations where the environment is anaerobic like intra-abdominal abscesses), PseudomonasN/A
Broad spectrum for gram positive and gram negative organisms in the urinary tractN/A
Multi-drug resistant GNRN/A
More potent against Gram +, Less potent against Gram - , More Anaerobes (oral)IV/PO
Streptococci, Staphylococci, Enteric GNRPO
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
Broad Spectrum, Much less resistance, Does not treat pseudomonasIV
Gram - NOT including Proteus or Pseudomonas, Useful for enterococcus (especially vancomycin resistant infections)N/A
Intrcellular Bacteria, StaphylococciIV/PO
Same as clarithromycin, but particulary effective for those with Chlamydia infectionIV/PO
Broad (does not include Strep or Pseudomonas), N/A
