Zyvoxam (Linezolid) is an antibiotic medicine. It is used to treat the following bacterial infections in adults: abdomen infections, skin infections, infections of system that carries urine out of body, lung infections (pneumonia). Antibacterial drugs like Zyvoxam treat only bacterial infections. They do not treat viral infections. Although you may feel better early in treatment, Zyvoxam should be used exactly as directed.
