Answered questions

What does Vancomycin treat and how does it work?
Please include reference Asked by Eartha Gorrindo 4 months ago.

Vancomycin is an antibiotic Vancomycin treats - Serious and life threatening infections due to susceptible organisms resistant to other antibiotics. Vancomycin Hydrochloride for Intravenous Infusion is used for the treatment of potentially life threatening infections that cannot be treated with another, less toxic antibiotic (eg: penicillins, cephalosporins).Staphylococcal infectionsIt is used against serious Staphylococcal infections (including MRSA) when treatment with other antibiotics has failed or the strain has been shown to be resistant. Sites of infection include:- bone infection- pneumonia- blood infection- soft tissue and skin infectionsIf an abscess has formed in relation to the infection, antibiotic treatment should be used only in support of surgical drainage.Heart valve infection (endocarditis)Vancomycin is used alone or in combination with an aminoglycoside for the treatment of endocarditis caused by Streptococcus viridans or S. bovis.Endocarditis caused by Enterococcus species can only be treated with Vancomycin when it is combined with an aminoglycoside.When endocarditis is caused by Staphylococcus epidermidis the combination of Vancomycin and rifampicin is appropriate.Infective diarrhoea (colitis)Vancomycin Hydrochloride for Intravenous Infusion should not be used to treat Staphylococcal colitis or pseudomembranous colitis caused by Clostridium difficile. Vancomycin is appropriate in these settings, but the oral preparation should be used (eg: Vancocin capsules). If absolutely necessary, the IV preparation can be given orally, but capsules should be used in preference. Vancomycin is from the class of antibiotics known as glycopeptides. It is active against Gram-positive bacteria, but no activity against Gram-negative bacteria, mycobacteria or fungi. It acts by inhibiting the production of a protein needed by bacteria to build their cell walls. Without this component, bacteria cannot survive. This is a similar mechanism of action to the penicillin antibiotics, but Vancomycin acts at a different site and is therefore active against several bacteria that may be resistant to penicillin (eg: S. pneumoniae). Vancomycin is active against a large list of common and uncommon Gram-positive bacteria, including:- Staphylococcus aureus (otherwise known as Golden Staph) including the very resistant strains, MRSA- Streptococci, including Streptococcus pneumoniae, which is an important cause of pneumonia- Enterococcus faecalis- Clostridium difficile, a normal bowel bug that can sometimes overgrow during treatment with other antibiotics and cause very serious diarrhoea- many other bacteriaWhen used in combination with other antibiotics, Vancomycin can have stronger actions against certain bacteria. For example, when used in combination with aminoglycosides (eg: gentamicin) it has stronger action against S. aureus.The Vancomycin + rifampicin combination also has stronger activity against many S. aureus strains.As with treating all infections, it is important to determine the causative organism and susceptibilities before initiating treatment if possible.

What is hydrochloride 25mg used for?
Asked by Daren Vessell 4 months ago.

Are you sure you don't mean hydrochlorothiazide? HCTZ is a drug used for high blood pressure. Some drugs have the term "hydrochloride" in it but it is just a chemical name added to the actual drug. For example vancomycin hydrochloride. The drug is vancomycin, an antibiotic, and hydrochloride is part of the preparation. Answered by Hiedi Jalkut 4 months ago.
