For MRSA it depends on whether or not there are other complications involved, for instance if the person has also developed pneumonia due to it, then the antibiotic of choice is Linezolid.


For Ca-MRSA, HA-MRSA, the choice is Vancomycin.


So there still isn't any real definitive, or clear cut answer to give you for these questions.

Have you been diagnosed?

MRSA is a super bug and requires to be treated with super drugs. In pakistan Vancomycin, Teicoplanin, Tigecycline and LINEZOLID areb used frequently to treat mrsa infections. Amon these drugs Linezolid has an edge of its availability in oral form with 100% bioavailability and bioeqiuivalence with injection. In Pakistan Linezolid is marketed by Continental Pharmaceuticals with brand name of NEZKIl. It is available in 600mg infusion and tablet form, 400mg tablet, 200mg/100mm infusion and 100mg/5ml suspension. It is available at an affordable price.

MRSA needs a very agreessive traetment based on lab culture reports.Oral antibiotics (such as trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole [co-trimoxazole], a tetracycline, or clindamycin) are used in the treatment of uncomplicated skin and soft-tissue infections, when the patient has no evidence of systemic infection (e.g., abscess or presumed infected spider bite). Linezolid can be used, but this is expensive and rarely needed in most cases. It should only be used in consultation with an infectious disease specialist.

Incision and drainage alone (without antibiotics) may be sufficient treatment for small abscesses (e.g., <5 cm for skin and soft tissue).[B Evidence] However, many physicians will still treat with antibiotics.

Lack of response to oral antibiotics or complicated infection (evidence of systemic infection) is an indication for hospitalisation and intravenous antibiotics.

Hospital-acquired MRSA infections

These infections are more likely to require intravenous antibiotics.

First-line treatment for hospital-acquired MRSA infection is vancomycin. (VININ ) from Qualtrapharma Serum levels must be monitored throughout treatment. Physicians should confer with their reference laboratory for normal vancomycin peak and trough values.

There is evidence that linezolid is comparable with vancomycin for treatment of hospital-acquired MRSA at any body site, but it is a secondary option because of its potential adverse effects.
