Mechanism of action: disrupts bacterial DNA 2. Includes most anaerobic microorganisms, including Bacteroides species drug of choice b. Exceptions include some anaerobic gram-positive organisms, including Peptostreptococcus, Actinomyces, and Propionibacterium acnes c. A drug of choice for C difcile, Entamoeba histolytica, Giardia, and Gardnerella 3. Include nausea, vomiting, reversible neutropenia, metallic taste, and a disulram reaction when coadministered with alcohol b.
Neuropathies and seizures with high doses 4. Major route of elimination: hepatic metabolism N. Quinupristin-Dalfopristin Synercid 1. Mechanism of action: block protein synthesis the 2 components are synergistic by binding to the 50S ribosomal subunit 2.

Good activity against gram-positive cocci, including vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium and staphylococcus and methicillin-resistant strains b. Substantially decreased activity against Enterococcus faecalis 3. Include a relatively high rate of inammation and irritation at the infusion site, arthralgias, myalgias, and hyperbilirubinemia b.
Inhibits the metabolism of other drugs metabolized through the CYP3A4 enzyme; guard against possible drug interactions 4. Major route of elimination: hepatic O. Linezolid 1.
Mechanism of action: inhibits bacterial ribosome assembly thus inhibits protein synthesis. Active against gram-positive bacteria, including methicillin-resistant staphylococci, most vancomycin-resistant enterococci, and penicillin-resistant S pneumoniae b. Active against Nocardia and some mycobacterial species 3. Most prominent: myelosuppression, especially with prolonged use b. Headache, diarrhea, and peripheral or optic neuropathy can occur c.

Rare: lactic acidosis d. Linezolid is a weak monoamine oxidase inhibitor that interacts with some medications, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and monoamine oxidase inhibitors there are reports of serotonin syndrome 4. Major route of elimination: hepatic metabolism P.
Daptomycin 1. Mechanism of action: acts on cell membrane, causing rapid membrane depolarization and a potassium ion efux, which is followed by arrest of DNA, RNA, and protein synthesis, resulting in bacterial cell death 2. Spectrum of activity: gram-positive organisms, including Staphylococcus including methicillin-resistant strains , group A streptococcus, and Enterococcus including many vancomycin-resistant strains, but not well studied for serious infections 3.
Include GI effects, hypersensitivity reactions, headache, insomnia, myalgias, and creatine phosphokinase elevations b. The manufacturer suggests stopping use of statins during daptomycin therapy and monitoring creatine kinase values weekly 4. Major route of elimination: renal Q. Colistimethate or Colistin 1. Given IV or by inhalation for local effect in the lungs 2. Mechanism of action: colistimethate is converted to colistin, which disrupts the permeability of the bacterial membrane, leading to leakage of the cell contents and cell death 3.
Broad activity against gram-negative aerobes, including many multidrug resistant Acinetobacter baumannii, P aeruginosa, and Klebsiella pneumoniae. Its activity against resistant organisms has led to a resurgence in its use 4. Administered IV 1 Nephrotoxicity is the predominant adverse effect usually reversible but is less common than previously thought 2 Neurotoxicity rare includes paresthesias, vertigo, and possible neuromuscular blockade b. Administered by inhalation not FDA approved 1 FDA reported a possible connection between use of premixed colistimethate and death of a cystic brosis patient 2 Colistimethate should be reconstituted as close to the administration time as possible 5.
Requires dose adjustment of IV formulation with renal dysfunction II. Antiviral Agents A. AntiHerpes Simplex Agents 1.
Agents: acyclovir, valacyclovir, and famciclovir 2. Mechanism of action: activated by viral thymidine kinase and blocks viral DNA synthesis 3.

Not effective for treatment of cytomegalovirus CMV 4. Acyclovir has been associated with neurotoxicity and nephrotoxicity IV, especially if dose not adjusted for renal dysfunction b. GI effects c. Patients receiving high doses of acyclovir IV should be well hydrated to minimize renal tubule drug precipitation d. Famciclovir is associated uncommonly with headache, nausea, diarrhea, and rare CNS effects, specically confusion or hallucinations; neutropenia and liver function test elevations may occur rarely 5.
Major route of elimination: renal B. Anti-CMV Agents 1. Agents: ganciclovir, valganciclovir, cidofovir, and foscarnet 2. Mechanism of action a.

Cidofovir: metabolized intracellularly by thymidine kinase for herpesvirus and by. Ganciclovir and valganciclovir: intracellularly phosphorylated; inhibit viral DNA synthesis c. Foscarnet: directly inhibits viral DNA synthesis; does not require phosphorylation 3. Ganciclovir and valganciclovir 1 Myelosuppression generally neutropenia or thrombocytopenia 2 Less common: nephrotoxicity, liver function test elevations, and fever 3 Rare: CNS effects, including headache, confusion, seizures, and coma b.
Cidofovir 1 Dose-related nephrotoxicity, neutropenia, iritis, uveitis, and GI effects 2 Saline hydration and probenecid should be used to decrease the risk of nephrotoxicity 3 Avoid use if possible in patients with renal dysfunction c. Foscarnet 1 Nephrotoxicity minimize with saline hydration , electrolyte disturbances, and CNS effects 2 Fever, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea are common 5.
Major route of elimination: renal C. AntiInuenza Virus Agents 1.
