What is Azithromycin?

Azithromycin is an antibiotic that is normally used to fight a wide range of bacterial infections, including ear, skin, and respiratory infections as well as different types of sexually transmitted diseases. Continue reading this article to learn more about this effective and widely used antibiotic.

How does it work?

Azithromycin dihydrate is an antibiotic that works by preventing bacteria sensitive to azithromycin from producing proteins, which are the basis of their growth and reproduction. Its peak of action is 2 to 3 hours after oral administration of medication.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Azithromycin is a macrolide type antibiotic, which also includes clarithromycin and roxithromycin, which in addition to being used for the treatment of the aforementioned diseases are also effective against atypical mycobacterial diseases. The primary benefit presented with Azithromycin is that it is used as a chlamydia treatment medication. It should be noted that these sexual health treatment antibiotics are not effective against viral infections such as the flu or a common cold. Incorrect use of this drug can, in fact, lead to less effectiveness.

 

How do I use it?

Follow all directions on your prescription label. Do not take this medicine in larger or smaller amounts, or for longer than recommended. The dose and duration of azithromycin treatment may change depending on the type of infection.

You can take most forms of azithromycin with or without food.

For the use of the oral suspension in package only: Open the package and mix the medicine with 2 ounces of water. Mix it up and drink it right away. Do not save it for later use. To make sure you are getting the full dose, add more water to the glass, turn it over and drink right away.

Its dosage

Azithromycin dosage should be administered as the only daily dose. The treatment time is established according to the degree of infection. Azithromycin tablets can be taken with or without food.

Adults: For the treatment of sexually transmitted diseases caused by Chlamydia trachomatis, Haemophilus ducreyi, or susceptible strains of Neisseria gonorrhoeae, the dose of Azithromycin is 1,000 mg as a single dose.

Elderly: The same dose is used as in adults.

Patients with renal impairment: In patients with mild to moderate (IFG 10-80 ml / min) or severe renal impairment, no dose adjustment is necessary.

Patients with hepatic impairment: The same dosage may be administered as for patients with mild to moderate hepatic impairment as for patients with normal hepatic function.

Side effects & precautions

For the Azithromycin precaution and side effects, you should seek emergency medical attention if you have symptoms of an allergic reaction (hives, shortness of breath, swelling of the face or throat) or a severe skin reaction (fever, sore throat, burning eyes, skin pain , red or purple rash that spreads and causes blisters and peeling.)

Seek medical attention if you have a serious adverse reaction that can affect many parts of your body. Symptoms may include: rash, fever, swollen glands, flu-like symptoms, muscle aches, severe weakness, unusual bruising, or yellowing of the skin or eyes. This reaction can occur after several weeks that you start using azithromycin.

Call your doctor immediately if you have these Azithromycin side effects:

  • severe stomach pain, diarrhea that is watery or bloody
  • fast or pounding heartbeats, fluttering in your chest, shortness of breath, and sudden dizziness (like you might pass out); or
  • liver problems - nausea, upper stomach pain, itching, feeling tired, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes).

 

Call your doctor right away if a baby who is taking azithromycin becomes irritable or vomits while eating or breastfeeding.

Older adults may be more sensitive to side effects of the heart rhythm, including a fast heart rate that can be fatal.

Common side effects may include: diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain or headache.

Azithromycin precautions: absorption of this antibacterial medication can be adversely affected by antacids containing magnesium or aluminum if taken at the same time. This includes products like Milk of Magnesia, Rulox, Mintox, Gaviscon and others. If you take that drug, wait at least two hours before taking Azithromycin.

Always tell your doctor about any drugs you are currently taking, including those you have recently stopped using, before starting treatment with Azithromycin. Several drugs can react with Azithromycin and you should be especially careful with Nelfinavir, as well as commonly used anticoagulants like Jantoven, Coumadin and Warfarin.
