A trend towards a better outcome in studies that used sulfisoxazole
did not reach significance compared with those using other medications (ie, ampicillin, amoxicillin, cotrimoxazole).
Erythromycin ethylsuccinate sulfisoxazole
acetyl/ Pediazole (50 mg/kg/day) in four divided doses for 10 days; or
If antibiotics are used, the meta-analysis by Rosenfeld and colleagues showed there were no differences in outcomes between treatment with cefaclor, cefixime, erythromycin, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, amoxicillin clavulanate, or erythromycin sulfisoxazole
, and treatment with amoxicfilin or ampicillin.

The isolates were found susceptible to imipenem, had intermediate susceptibility or were resistant to ceftazidime and cefepime, and were resistant to ampicillin, aztreonam, cefotaxime, ceftriaxone, chloramphenicol, ciprofloxacin, nalidixic acid, streptomycin, sulfisoxazole

Amoxicillin is estimated to be prescribed in about 38% of the visits, followed by trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (10%), erythromycin/ sulfisoxazole
(10%), and cefaclor (9%) and topical polymyxin B/neomycin/hydrocortisone (9%) (NAMCS, data set, 1985, unpublished data).
Antimicrobial susceptibility screening using a panel of 15 agents (amikacin, amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, ampicillin, cefoxitin, ceftiofur, ceftriaxone, chloramphenicol, ciprofloxacin, gentamicin, kanamycin, nalidixic acid, streptomycin, sulfisoxazole
, tetracycline, and trimethoprim/ sulfamethoxazole) was conducted by the Public Health Agency of Canada, Laboratory for Foodborne Zoonoses.
Initial antimicrobial susceptibility testing performed at LNSP indicated that all isolates were susceptible to tetracycline (a proxy for doxycycline) but resistant to sulfisoxazole
and nalidixic acid.

A recent study compared the effectiveness of sulfisoxazole
(a sulfa antibiotic) to ear tubes.
Pure cultures were tested by disk diffusion on Mueller-Hinton agar without blood with amoxicillin/clavulanate, ampicillin, chloramphenicol, ciprofloxacin, furazolidone, nalidixic acid, streptomycin, sulfisoxazole
, tetracycline (as a marker for doxycycline), and trimethoprim/ sulfamethoxazole (Becton Dickinson, Franklin Lakes, NJ, USA).
