General Susceptibility

Reliably susceptible:

  • ¬†Penicillin

  • ¬†Amoxicillin/Ampicillin

  • ¬†Vancomycin.

Resistant to Cephalosporins.

Variably susceptible: Fluoroquinolones.

Aminoglycosides may be used for synergy in specific infections ie infective endocarditis if no high-level resistance. If urinary isolate, most are nitrofurantoin susceptible
