    IV antibiotics versus oral antibiotics?


    I`ve been reading and hearing about IV antibiotics being more successful and faster that oral antibiotics in several places, but I was wondering if anyone could share their experiences with both? I was hoping to hear pros and cons.. if possible stories from different people..

    Based on what I`ve read everywhere (and heard from friendly people on this board), I feel I would like to try IV antibiotics if offered as an option (ultimately up to the doctor of course), but I was wondering what side-effects / reasons there would be to go with oral antibiotics instead?

    I understand it is more complicated than that (different types of antibiotics, different combinations depending on co-infections, etc), but I just wanted to get an idea of whats involved in both.

    Thanks a lot!!
