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 was in intensive care with mrsa pneumonia.I wasn't expected to survive.After an infectious disease doctor began zyvox iv,I beganto recover. I left the hospital after 5 weeks,and was teaching full time 3 weeks later. Zyvox saved my life! That was in June,2006.

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.

I have been miserable while taking this drug. I couldn't eat for days and lost 11 pounds. It left not a metal taste but a greasy film in my mouth. My last dose was Mon. and today is Fri. and I still have the film in my mouth and still can't taste much of anything. I just wonder if I will get everything back to where it was?
