Summary of Clinical Use Click here for help
Flucloxacillin is not approved by the EMA or FDA. Generic flucloxacillin is authorised for use in the UK and other countries. UK approval allows flucloxacillin (oral, injection or infusion) to treat infections by penicillinase producing staphylococci and other sensitive Gram-positive organisms, such as osteomyelitis [1-2] and endocarditis. It can also be used prophylactically during major cardiothoracic and orthopaedic surgical procedures if appropriate. Flucloxacillin is ineffective against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
