5 True/False Questions

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


  2. pharmacokinetics of macrolides-readily absorbed from the GI tract; excretion in bile, feces, urine
    -only a small amy is excreted in urine, therefore renal insufficiency is not a contraindication for macrolide use


  3. lincosamides-structurally related to macrocodes
    -ketek: (18+) treats mild to moderate CAP
    -adverse rxn: may lead to an exacerbation of myashenia gravis
    -many drug interactions


  4. glycopeptides-sub cat of macrolide
    -focus of vancomycin
    -used against drug-resistant s.aureus and cardiac surf prophylaxis w pt with PCN allergy


  5. red neck (man) syndrome- due to too rapid of an infusion of glycopeptide
    -red blotching of face/neck/chest
    -toxic not allergic rxn
    -no need to stop infusion, lower infusion rate
