one more MRSA question
Jun 18, 2005


Thanks for answering my email last night about my recurring MRSA infection. I did have one more question I forgot to ask.

One of my doctors was thinking about putting me on Adderall. Do you feel this would be harmful while I am trying to treat the recurrent MRSA infection with a 3-6 month course of Cipro?

Thanks, David

Response from Dr. Pierone

I don't think that this will be a problem. The data linking amphetamines with a higher risk of infection involves methamphetamine use in a non-medicinal manner.

Viramune No. Sustiva Yes?
