This is not a prescription. Using medicines without the guidance of a licensed provider  can be lethal

This is not a prescription for any specific patient.

For methicillin sensitive staphylococci following antimicrobial therapy can be used:

  1.  Nafcillin 2g IV every 4h. Or
  2.  Oxacillin 2g IV every 4h. Or
  3.  Flucloxacillin 2g IV every 6h.

If the pathogens are penicillin sensitive then penicillin 4 million units IV every 4h is the drug of choice. Keep in mind that mostly the isolates are not penicillin sensitive.
