The active ingredient in Zyvox is called Linezolid and it’s an antibiotic used in order to treat different bacterial infections. It works by preventing the spread and growth of the bacteria. It only works when it comes to treating bacterial infections. It won’t be effective as far as viral conditions are concerned (Example, common cold, flu) Making use of any antibiotic when you really don’t require it is to be avoided as well, because this can cause it not to work in the future when you might really need it.
Zyvox is a part of a group of medications called MAO inhibitors. These heighten the levels of specific natural substances in the body such as (dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin) and this can lead to an increased possibility of side effects as well as food and drug interactions.
