Have antibiotic sensibilities for my infection. Says bactrim s <=20, cipro (ciprofloxacin) s <=0.25. Does that denote efficacy? Dose requirement? Other? Thanks.
Depends:: Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) goes out through the kidneys, so it would be an ideal drug to treat a urinary tract infection with this sensitive bug, but some tissues don't permit some drugs to soak into them. So the question is best answered knowing what is actually being treated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Please answer!Are there any common bacteria BESIDES std related ones that doxycyline will treat that levaquin (levofloxacin) doesn't treat effectively? Prostattitis

If you had an STD, almost certainly levo would have worked -- for example, chlamydia and most cases of nongonococcal urethritis (NGU). True prostatitis is uncommon at your age, and when present usually is nonbacterial and most antibiotics are ineffective. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

You're on an unusual combination of medications which makes me suspect you've been diagnosed with a resistant form of tuberculosis.

Do you use Cefazedone (first-generation cephaloporins) or Amikacin (Aminoglycosides antibiotic) for treating pelvic inflammatory disease?
Not usually: I'm not sure where you are, but in most of the world's countries these drugs are not recommended and would not be used to treat PID. They are of uncertain activity against gonorrhea and definitely will not treat chlamydia. Try to find an infectious diseases or STD expert to advise on treatment.
