  4. Tetracyclines
  5. photosensitivity
  1. a inhibits cell wall synthesis; active against several gr + bacteria; peaks 30min after IV infusion
  2. b -lincosamides
  3. c -bacteriostatic
    -used in combination to treat h.pylori
    -resistance has increased in treatment of pneumococcal and gonococcal infections
    -orally use mainly
    -available in IV/IM- rare cause of pain
    -not to be taken with magnesium/aluminum antacid preparations, calcium containing products.- prevents absorption
  4. d -increase risk with declomycin and long acting forms.
    -get sun-burnt 10x worse than average
  5. e -inhibits protein synethsis in m.o by binding to ribosomal RNA which leads to bacterial cell death
    -peak action 1 hr

  4. -interferes with enzyme DNA gyrase- needed to synthesize bacterial DNA
    -bactericidal on gram + and -
    -mainly used for tx of UTI, bone, joint infect; bronchitis, pneumonia, gastroenteritis, gonorrhea
    -high tissue distribution
    -food/antacids slow absorption rate

    -adverse rxn: may lead to an exacerbation of myashenia gravis
    -many drug interactions


  2. common examples of Fluoroquinolones-inhibits bacterial DNA synthesis by inhibiting the enzyme DNA gyrase
    -effect of oral hypoglycemics, theophylline and caffeine are increased with concurrent use of a Fluoroquinolones
    -peak con: 1-2 hrs


  3. avelox-more active against s. pneumoniae than levaquin is


  4. long acting tetracyclines-PO only


  5. pharmacodynamics of Fluoroquinolones-well absorbed from GI tract
    -low protein binding effect
    -moderate half life: 6-8 hrs
    -excreted via urine
