  47. lincosamides
    clindamycin (Cleocin)

    trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (Bactrim, Septra), sulfisoxazole-erythromycin, sulfadiazine
  69. sulfonamides MOA
    bacteria are unable to absorb folate like humans. sulfonamides competitively inhibit PABA, the first reaction in the folate synthesis pathway. trimethoprim blocks the last step in the pathway.

    stevens-johnson syndrome, kernicterus (bilirubin-induced brain dysfunction -- contraindicated in pts <2 months)
  71. imidazoles
    metronidazole (Flagyl)
  72. metronidazole MOA
    anaerobic bacteria naturally reduce the prodrug metronidazole to its active form via an enzyme called ferredoxin. once reduced, it is postulated to lead to toxic products that result in DNA breakage and subsequent cell death.
  73. imidazole interactions
    metronidazole+ethanol (inhibits aldehyde dehydrogenase, resulting in buildup of toxic metabolites)
  74. metronidazole SE
    metallic taste, furring of the tongue
