I was prescribed this for 22 days, until I can get to a specialist to check on (MRSA) Infection. It was called in for me and I went to C.V.S to pick it up and the total was $3,500.00. I about passed out! I am calling tomorrow to see if there are any alternatives, if there are none... I will be taking out a loan just to get my meds. (No Insurance here) Other alternatives I have already tried are: Bactrim, Doxycycline, Rifampin and Macyrobid.

Took 2 pills per day for 21 days. About $4000.00
Fortunately, my insurance paid all but $85.00
The other problem was that Zyvox destroys blood platelets, so I had to get a blood draw twice weekly, to see what the level was. The Dr would then make the decision to continue or not.
The good part, is I am now healed. Took about 9 months, and 3 or 4 different antibiotics to find one that worked. (Thanks to my infectious disease specialist!!)
