Tedizolid (Sivextro) is an antibiotic in the Oxazolidinone family. It is primarily used for the treatment of certain types of bacterial skin infections. Tedolizid is a relatively new antibiotic that is not yet widely used and may not be available in all countries.
Tedolizid is rarely used as a treatment for acne. There is very little clinical research or laboratory testing on the effectiveness of Tedolizid for the treatment of acne. It is not currently marketed as an acne treatment. However, laboratory testing has shown that Tedizolid does have activity against many gram-positive bacteria, a group that includes the acne-causing P. acnes bacterium.
Tedizolid is an antibiotic that warrants further investigation into its utility as an acne treatment. Because this medication is not available in generic form, it will likely be substantially more expensive than many alternative antibiotics.
Linezolid (Zyvox) is an antibiotic in the Oxazolidinone family. Linezolid is used to treat certain types of skin and respiratory infections. It has antibacterial activity against many Gram-positive bacteria, including the acne-causing P. acnes bacterium.
Linezolid is rarely used as a treatment for acne. Linezolid is only recommended for short-term use, long-term use of Linezolid can cause significant side effects. Therefore, the utility of Linezolid as an acne treatment would be limited to short-term use for the purpose of treating acute cases of severe inflammatory acne.
Linezolid is a relatively new antibiotic that was approved by the FDA (United States) in 2000. In many countries where generic Linezolid is not available (eg. United States) this medication can be very expensive.
