Zyvox is used for treating adults with certain serious bacterial infections that are often resistant to other antibiotics. Zyvox is an oxazolidinone antibiotic. It works by interfering with the production of proteins needed by bacteria to grow.
Use Zyvox as directed by your doctor.
- Take Zyvox by mouth with or without food. If stomach upset occurs, take with food to reduce stomach irritation.
- To clear up your infection completely, take Zyvox for the full course of treatment. Keep taking it even if you feel better in a few days.
- If you miss a dose of Zyvox, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.
Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Zyvox.
