Azithromycin Profile:

Zithromax is an macrolide antibiotic related to erythromycin. Azithromycin fights bacteria in the body. Zithromax is used to treat many different types of infections caused by bacteria, such as respiratory infections, skin infections, ear infections, and sexually transmitted diseases. In children, Azithromycin is used to treat middle ear infection, pneumonia, tonsillitis, and strep throat.

Take Azithromycin only as directed by your doctor to benefit your condition as much as possible. Do not take more of it, do not take it more often, and do not take it for a longer time than your doctor ordered.

Zithromax may be taken with or without food on a full or empty stomach. If your doctor tells you to take it a certain way, follow your doctor's instructions.

Do not use Zithromax if you have ever had an allergic reaction to Azithromycin or similar drugs such as Erythromycin, Clarithromycin, Telithromycin, or Troleandomycin.

Do not stop taking Azithromycin without checking first with your doctor.

Azithromycin Dosing:

The dose of Zithromax will be different for different patients. Follow your doctor's orders or the directions on the label. The following information includes only the average doses of Zithromax. If your dose is different, do not change it unless your doctor tells you to do so.

To use the oral suspension single dose packet: Open the packet and pour the medicine into 2 ounces of water. Stir this mixture and drink all of it right away. Do not save for later use. Throw away any mixed oral suspension that has not been used within 12 hours.

To make sure you get the entire dose, add a little more water to the same glass, swirl gently and drink right away.

Azithromycin may be taken with or without food. Take the medicine with food if it upsets your stomach.

Shake the oral suspension (liquid) well just before you measure a dose. To be sure you get the correct dose, measure the liquid with a marked measuring spoon or medicine cup, not with a regular table spoon. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one.

Take azithromycin for the full prescribed length of time. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cleared. Azithromycin will not treat a viral infection such as the common cold or flu.

The number of tablets that you take depends on the strength of the Azithromycin.
