These two articles are word for word the same, interchanging only flucloxacillin and dicloxacillin. The only significant differences are the diagrams, which differ by a single atom and could be on the same page, and the drug tables. In addition, the articles already state where the two drugs differ, so all that would be required is moving the diagram and drug table of one of the drugs to the other drug page and setting up a redirect. Since these are so similar, should they be merged? Yazza 12:38, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
I would oppose a merge. --Arcadian 15:52, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
Major difference is that flucloxacillin has been associated with severe jaundice, dicloxacillin hasnt, and is thus more widely used now. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 22:50, 18 October 2009 (UTC) Jonathan
