Keep an Eye Out for the New Tetracycline Antibiotic Nuzyra
Nuzyra (noo-ZYE-rah, omadacycline) will be a once-daily tetracycline antibiotic for community-acquired pneumonia or skin infections.
Nuzyra is effective against some bacteria resistant to doxycycline or minocycline. But it doesn't seem more effective than other appropriate antibiotics...and costs about $400/oral dose.
Expect Nuzyra to be saved as a last resort...when other antibiotics can't be used due to true allergies or serious side effects.
