After 4 days of treatment began developing rash on neck, chest, inside of arms. It is helping the staph infection I think, but the itchy rash in beginning to become unbearable. Think I'll stop the medication and revisit dr. tomorrow.

My daugther was given 2 rounds of this medicine to treat MRSA caused from a cut on her knee. During the last round she developed a rash on wrist and knees and her throat was swelling shut. Great medicine if you can deal with the side affects.

My daughter was given this med for a possible staph infection. She developed sever flu-like symptoms after two days, stopped taking the med and was sick for the rest of the week. Her test for flu was negative. Now 6 weeks later she is still have unexplained abdominal pain, which I think stems back to the med... All tests for other diagnosis have been negative. More testing tomorrow.
