Default Osteomyelitis-Chronic

i developed osteomyelitis due to a simple knee surgery . now nine surgerys <br>and two attempts at IV antibiotics ( rocephine and vancyomicin ) later , my doctors have placed me on zyvox 600mgs. my side effects have been , chronic fatigue with occassional insomnia , loss of appetite and my back and shoulders have broken out severely with pimples . i am not sure as to the affect the antibiotic is having on my infection , which i have now had for over a year and half . i see my doctor this week and hopefully will be scheduling my last surgery to put back the total knee replacement i had to have done last february , but removed in may due to the infection being reactivated . good luck to all who share this common problem .

Default reaction to Zyvox

I was looking up reactions to Zyvox to see if anyone had a reaction like mine. To make a long story short, I have suffered from migraines for over 15 years, but the headaches from the Zyvox were absolute killers. My doctors put me on double doses of Percocet (Oxycodone w/tylenol). The original Percocet was 5mg/325mg. My prescription was for the newer strength that is 10mg of Oxycodone and 650mg of Tylenol. I was taking two tablets every 4 hours for the incredible pain in my head. <br><br>I tell you that to tell you this. You mentioned having multiple surgeries. By chance, if they gave you Oxycodone for pain relief, could that be where the skin reaction came from? I am in no way saying that I think you are wrong and by all means follow your doctor, I just know that while on both meds, when I finished the Zyvox and continued the Percocet, the rash on my face, neck and back was awful. I just thought I would put my two cents in. I hope you dont think I am being pushy. Thanks for your time!<br><br>Hope you are recovering well!<br>Jen
