Took vancomycin/levaquin (levofloxacin) for meningitis caused by sinuses, then another month of levaquin (levofloxacin). Should it be enough to clean out sinuses for good?

But if source of original infection was sinus, you may have anatomical issue which caused in first place. Next step, visit otolaryngologist who has experience in sinus surgery.

Do probiotic pills help with c diff. I hear meds are a quests sometimes. On vancomycin liquid 125. I hear feces transplants have good success rate.
Probiotics: Probably help more with prevention than treatment and may be reasonable in patients with recurrent disease. Saccharomyces boulardii and lactobacillus rhamnosus have been studied the most. There is good evidence for fecal transplant] to treat c. Difficile but still considered investigational and not without potential risks.
Hi docs, can you tell me if surgical incisions to drain a staph infection and intravenous vancomycin are the most effective treatments?
It all depends: Most drug reactions are very benign and only cause a rash and itching. It goes away when you stop the medicine. However, sometimes, you may have a severe reaction that acts like a third degree burn. This is called steven johnsons syndrome. This is very dangerous and needs immediate medical attention. Many times the first sign of this reaction is blisters in your mouth or nose.
Usually not: It causes flushing and not feeling well. However, if someone allergic to any drug he/she could develop renal failure.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: So far no known cross reactivity between vancomycin and sulpha compounds, always tell your doctors what are your medicine allergies, good luck
It's not: I didn't know it was. Vancomycin is an appropriate treatment for staph infections, especially those that are resistant to other antibiotics.
