In term of dollars, absolutely. A dose of this sucker is like 100 doses of rocephin, and our docs used to use it like water, that and tygacil. Had to stop that pattern in a hurry.
Our ID pharmacist would have a heart attack.
When I first got here, the favorite empiric regimens MDs wrote were: zyvox + zosyn and tygacil + levaquin. You want to guess what's kind of patient/disease the second combo is often used to cover? I was wondering which planet the docs come from.
tigecycline/levofloxacin for empiric PNA coverage.
As far as number of doses is concerned, saline flush and zofran leads.
As far as total dollars.....neulasta leads.
