My husband has been on Zyvox 600mg for almost 2 weeks. He had MRSA in and around his lungs from aan acute pancreatitis attack. He was in the hospital for 3 weeks and on many IV antibodics. His white count is almost normal, so it must be working. He says all of his food is tasteless, he has stomach upset & heartburn. I will update this in a few weeks but we think it is working!

M mother has MRSA, and staph. She has been on so many different antibiotics with no results. We are to the point that she will have to start taking another tyope. This is also a very expensive medication. The doctor will probably put her back on it. I just wish it could be more affordable.

I am on my second round of zyvox. The first time, the cough went away, but came back after I finished taking it. Time will tell if it works this time. When first taking it, little side effects. Towards the end, queasy stomach, little appetite, bad taste in mouth and on my lips. This went away in about a week after I finished the first round. If it works, it will be worth it.
