Is cleocin suggestible for klebsiella oxytoca infection?
not commonly used
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
Klebsiella oxytoca can be resistant to different antibiotics like the more common member of the klebsiella family, klebsiella pneumonia.
Cleocin is not one of the drugs normally used for this species of bacteria.
The antibiotics used for klebsiella depends on the severity of the reaction and the results of the culture report from the lab. The lab report gives an indication of which antibiotics would work best and which ones would not work at all because of resistance.
If it is only ciprofloxacin that you had a reaction to and you are not allergic or have issues with the other members of cipro family of drugs, your doctor may consider one of these. Other members of this drug family are moxifloxacin, levofloxacin, norfloxacin.
As you mentioned most of the other drugs are iv and/or im (intramuscular).
Persons respond differently to medication and it is possible , since you had a reaction with ciprofloxacin that you may have a good reaction with cleocin but it is not one of the commonly used drugs for this bacteria.
You can consider continuing the course and monitoring your symptoms to see if they improve, if they do not your doctor may consider other options or referring you to an infectious disease specialist you may be able to suggest the best course of treatment.
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
lab report may have shown it was sensitive
I agree, if it caused blurred vision then I would not recommend any future use.I would not chance it either.
Klebsiella can be difficult to treat because it resists antibiotics.
It is possible that it may respond to the cleocin. The lab report may have reported that it was sensitive or responsive to the cleocin.
After the course, your doctor will wait 4 to 7 days and consider repeating the swab to see if there is improvement.
Normally the cipro or any oral or iv/im antibiotic course is 10 to 14 days but many vaginal infections only require 3 days of treatment.
Some of the iv or im medications only need to given once daily eg ceftriaxone. Your doctor may consider one of these if the infection does not respond to the cleocin
