Post Linezolid or Moxifloxacin to treat enterococcus faecalis?
Has anyone with enterococcus faecalis tried Linezolid or Moxifloxacin? I have read studies that say that cases of chronic prostatitis caused by enterococcus faecalis were cured using Moxifloxacin. I have tried both Levofloxacin and Ciprofloxacin and they didn't work so I doubt that another fluoroquinolone would work but who knows.

And about Linezolid I have read a case in Spanish of a guy who got cured by it. Linezolid appeared in my cultures antibiogram as sensitive but for any reason urologists never prescribed it to me.

So, I want to know if anyone here have tried any of them.

Don't know Chav. I tried Tedizolid which is similar to linezolid, but there was no effect.

Today I have finished my second week of Moxifloxacin. There have been days in which I have felt a little improvement but it's not clear because some days it goes down again (like today). I will ask tomorrow to the doctor to continue another two weeks to see if there is a definitive improvement.

I'm going to do 2 more weeks of moxifloxacin. Somedays I feel improvement, other days it hurts more than usual. So maybe something is moving there.

I'm ejaculating many times in a day (an urologist told me that was good because you help the body to flush the infection), but I'm not sure if I must do the opposite. Maybe if I let the semen with antibiotics accumulate it would be more effective.

Sorry for the late answer. No, it didn't work. I don't know what else I can try.
