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.

Any updates on finishing two more weeks of the moxi?

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

Linezolid is used to life threatening bacteria and using it can cause death in some people who have some kind of problem ,this what doctors told me I have same bacteria and I have tried all kind of ABX but due to calcification bacteria won't die .

Yes, Linezolid seems to be very dangerous and after the general doctor told me about that I decided to not use it. In addition, it's super expensive.

I don't know what other options I have left, indeed.

I have killed E.coi after extensive cultures and IV antibiotics ,did PCR and Methicillin resistance E.faecalis come out 85% with 1.55 x 10⁶/mL , doctor said its contamination ,I have pain and this PCR so i dont know what i should do ,it can be killed by linzolid /daptomycin

The problem is that almost every time I have taken an antibiotic I have ended with weeks or months of anxiety due to health problems. They were mild, yes, but when I see a symptom which I don't know the cause I tend to feel very anxious.

Two times I have taken antibiotics for 2 months have ended in the reactivation of citomegalovirus. Doctors said that it's not the antibiotic but it's hard to think the two times were a coincidence. Antibiotics weaken the inmune system and it makes perfect logic to me to think that they are beyond the cause of the reactivation of that virus. The virus is mild, yes, if you have a healthy inmune system it's not dangerous but sometimes it can cause symptoms that can be scary. The last time that happened, after taking the moxifloxacin, I was more than a month suffering from an excess of salivation, that was very unconfortable and until I knew (researching in the internet) that it's the citomegalovirus shedding what causes that I was in panic.

None of the antibiotics I have taken have caused a clearly noticeable improvement. Even if they are not penetrating the prostate at 100% they should do something at least while taking them (as many people in this forum have reported). That makes me think of another cause beyond the bacterias, or maybe a constant reinfection.

These days I'm thinking about chronic candidiasis as an underlying cause but my researching capacities are very limited and I'm not sure.

Anyway, I think that if two months of moxifloxacin didn't work it's very unlikely that an antibiotic will cure this. I need other ways, and if possible, safer ways.

best to do culture for sensitivity ,I have been trying many antibiotic before doing culture and non work ,after i did the culture it show all ABX I took was resistance .

There must be another cause that they are missing of why antibiotics don't work. I have made a lot of cultures and taken a lot of antibiotics listed in them as sensitive, but there was no improvement.

The moxifloxacin was the only that wasn't in the list, I don't know why. Levofloxacin and ciprofloxacin appeared in past cultures as sensitive and resistant depending on the bacteria, though.

The doctor told me that the moxifloxacin has better penetration in the prostate but we are not sure if there are some resistant bacterias to it.

I have never noticed a clear improvement taking antibiotics listed in the antibiogram as sensitive. That's a mistery. I think that deeper research is needed.

I'm planning doing another culture in the future and asking to check the resistance/sensitivity of moxifloxacin and another antibiotics (which weren't in previous antibiograms) but I'm losing my trust in antibiotics to cure this.

if they not penetrating you won't feel any progress .anyway I think only antibiotic work with me was 5 days of IV AMIKACIN it kill E.COLI but still I have other kind of bacteria there which is resistance to AMIKACIN ,Also I have 3 spot of calcification which as per doctor bacteria hide there and no antibiotic can reach there ,only TURP surgery to be done later .
