Thanks for posting your query.

As you mentioned, your pregnancy test is negative, stress or hormonal disturbance could be the reason for postponement of menstrual periods.

Withdrawal bleeding can be expected between 4-8 days after stopping the medication. As you have stopped medications on 22 March, you can still easily wait for few more days for periods to occur.

You might need to repeat your home pregnancy test again if periods do not occur. Do not worry. Anxiety contributes to the postponement again.

Linezolid does not have any major drug interaction with Susten, so I do not think that is the cause for delay.

Wait for another 4-5 days and relax yourself.

I hope, I have answered your query. I will be available for follow up queries if any.
