Zithromax: Instructions for use
The active substance of Zithromax is Azithromycin. According to the pharmacological group, it belongs to macrolide drugs and is a representative of azalides. Zithromax has a broad spectrum of antimicrobial action. Thus, it inhibits the growth and reproduction of bacteria. In high concentrations, it has a bactericidal effect.
When is Zithromax prescribed?
The indications for use are the following diseases:
Infections of the upper respiratory tract and ENT organs: sinusitis; tonsillitis; pharyngitis; otitis media
Lower respiratory tract infections: acute bronchitis; exacerbation of chronic bronchitis; bacterial pneumonia
Skin and soft tissue infections
Uncomplicated infections of the urogenital tract: urethritis or cervicitis; initial stage of Lyme disease (borreliosis).
Azithromycin is prescribed for a sore throat when there is plaque on the tonsils and erosive rash. Such a sore throat is called bacterial and is treated with antibiotics.
Interaction of Zithromax with other drugs and substances
Some drugs may interact with Zithromax (Azithromycin) and cause a number of undesirable effects, such as:
1. Digoxin (cardiac glycoside used to treat heart failure) - when interacting together, the effects of Digoxin are enhanced, which may increase its side effects.
2. Anticoagulants (e.g., Warfarin, Heparin) - clotting time increases, as azithromycin increases the effect of the former,
3. Terfenadine (anti-allergic drug) - it increases the side effect on the heart (tachycardia).
4. Heartburn medications (aluminum and magnesium-based antacids) - reduce the effectiveness of Azithromycin.
5. Ergotamine (ergot alkaloid) - can increase the toxic effects of ergotamine on the body.
The above drugs and groups of drugs are not the only ones that may interact with Zithromax (Azithromycin) and exhibit different pharmacological effects. Therefore, before you buy Zithromax, you should consult your doctor for advice.
Zithromax has a long half-life of 35-50 hours. The tissue elimination half-life is much longer. The therapeutic concentration of Azithromycin is maintained up to 5-7 days after the last dose.
Rash from Zithromax
Light sensitivity reactions (skin rashes) may occur during treatment with Zithromax. Therefore, avoid direct sunlight and tanning beds for and at least 7 days after taking Zithromax.
If you are intolerant to the drug, a skin rash occurs that spreads to the face or upper body and causes blisters and peeling.
Zithromax in pregnancy
It is recommended to use Zithromax only when absolutely necessary, because the risk of adverse effects of infections during pregnancy, both for the mother and the fetus, determines the need for effective antibiotic therapy for infections in pregnant women.
But this drug should be strictly prescribed by a doctor after he has established the benefits for the pregnant woman and determined the possible risk to the unborn child. Before use, read carefully the instructions for Zithromax online on the official website.
Zithromax 500 mg for 3 days
Zithromax package contains only 3 tablets, for a short course of treatment. Zithromax (Azithromycin) is an antibiotic that can be taken for just three days for infections of the upper lower respiratory tract, ENT organs, and soft tissue skin. Azithromycin is taken orally once a day at 500 mg, regardless of meals.
Zithromax for bronchitis
Azithromycin, as an antibiotic of the macrolide class, is highly active against the pathogens that most commonly cause lower respiratory tract infections, such as pneumococcus (Streptococcus pneumoniae), Haemophilus influenzae, Moraxella catarrhalis, Mycoplasma and Chlamydia (Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Chlamydia pneumoniae).
Azithromycin differs from other representatives of the macrolide class, such as erythromycin, clarithromycin, roxithromycin, dirithromycin, by using it in short courses for treating respiratory tract infections (3-5 days).
The drug effectively stops the inflammation of the lungs, reduces the intensity of the process, enhances the effect of other drugs. Against the background of admission the temperature decreases, the cough becomes productive, the patient's condition improves.
Does Zithromax cause diarrhea?
Tell your doctor if you have severe persistent diarrhea during or after treatment with Zithromax. In this case, the drug should be stopped, and you should not take any medicines that inhibit intestinal peristalsis. The doctor may also prescribe drugs that restore intestinal microflora, such as probiotics.
You can buy Zithromax online in our online pharmacy. By going to the website, you can always find out the price and availability of the drug.
Is Azithromycin effective for maxillary sinusitis?
Yes, Azithromycin can be effective for maxillary sinusitis.
The instructions for use state that Azithromycin is recommended for sinusitis. Gonorrhoea is a variant of sinusitis. But before prescribing it is extremely important to determine which causative agent is caused by maxillary sinusitis. For example, Azithromycin will help cure streptococcal maxillary sinusitis, but will have no effect on viral inflammation of the sinus.
Is Zithromax effective for Covid?
Covid is a disease caused by viruses. Since the virus does not synthesize protein on its own, an antibiotic has no effect on it. Therefore, it is useless to use antibacterial drugs for uncomplicated viral infections. In such cases, antiviral agents are effective - their active ingredients prevent the virus from entering the cell and replicating.
The drug can be prescribed only if the patient develops a complication - a secondary bacterial infection. Bacterial infection can occur due to weakened local immunity of the lungs.
The risk group for bacterial pneumonia includes patients with chronic respiratory diseases and heart failure.
Zithromax (Azithromycin) can cause serious allergic reactions such as swelling of the skin, mucous membranes, face, tongue and larynx, palpitation, drop in blood pressure (including fainting and shock), shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, and severe skin reactions (reddening of swelling with numerous small rashes). Sometimes during treatment with Zithromax occurred: acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, and toxic epidermal necrolysis.
Zithromax for streptococcus
Zithromax is an effective drug for streptococcal infection. The drug is used under the following scheme: 500 mg (15 mg/kg for children) once a day for 5 days.
The therapeutic effect of the antibiotic appears within three days - if at the end of this period relief is not achieved, the doctor should replace this antibiotic with another drug.
Zithromax for an ear infection
Azithromycin is often prescribed for otitis media, especially if the patient has a history of penicillin intolerance. It is an antibiotic active against Gram-positive, Gram-negative and some anaerobic microorganisms. The drug has a pronounced bactericidal effect, concentrating in the focus of inflammation. Improvement is observed from the second day of use.
Azithromycin should be used as prescribed, exclusively for the treatment of bacterial infections and in no way for diseases of viral etiology. The course of treatment must necessarily be taken to the end, without interruption of treatment and only as prescribed by the doctor.
The drug is contraindicated in the following cases:
Individual intolerance to azithromycin and other components of the drug;
Severe impaired liver function;
combined use with ergotamine and dihydroergotamine.
children under 12 years of age with body weight less than 45 kg (for dosage form of 500 mg tablet).
During pregnancy and breastfeeding, the use of the antibiotic is possible, with the doctor's prescription, and if the expected benefits to the mother will be greater than the potential risk to the fetus.

What you should know about brand and generic drug alternates.
Prescription drugs are a costly medical expense, especially for the elderly, those who are chronically ill and those with no or minimal drug coverage on their Health Insurance. However, each state in America has a law that allows pharmacists to substitute less expensive generic drugs for many brand name products. Depending on your prescription needs, your savings could be very significant. Before you talk with your doctor or pharmacist about switching, there are things you should know about generic drugs.
What is the difference between a generic and brand name drug?
Nothing except for the name, packaging, and the price, a generic drug is called by its chemical name; manufacturers assign their own brand name. The generic products have the same ingredients. Standard practice and most state laws require that a generic drug be generically equivalent to its brand name counterpart. That is, it must have the same active ingredients, strength, and dosage form, be it a pill, liquid, or injection. The generic drug also must be therapeutically equivalent. It must be the same drug chemically and have the same medical effect.
Do all drugs have generic equivalents?
No. Some drugs are protected by patents and are supplied by only one company. However, when the patent expires, other manufacturers can produce its generic version. Currently, about half the drugs on the market are available in generic form.
Will my doctor automatically prescribe generic drugs?
It depends on the physician. You can ask your doctor to write a prescription permitting substitution of a generic drug product when appropriate or to define the chemical name for the prescription. This will ensure you are purchasing the correct Mexico drug. Generic products will be as effective and less costly. Or, you can order only brand name products if you wish. www.MedsMex.com.com Mexico pharmacy offers a wide selection of both Brand Name & Generic Mexico medicine. Our Mexican generic drugs are of the highest quality, selected only from the most reputable manufacturers, and are safe to replace brand name medications costing much more.
