Antibiotics are divided into different groups based to their strength in tackling bacteria and the illnesses that come with them. While Cefixim and Cephalexin are included in the milder group of cephalosporin antibiotics, Naxy is in the stronger group of macrolide antibiotics. Naxy is useful in severe cases of infections in the lungs (pneumonia), the tubes that lead to the lungs (bronchitis), and in the skin. It is even helpful in controlling the spread of bacteria in HIV/AIDS patients.

Naxy was developed in Japanese labs in the 1970s. It was a byproduct of a different version of erythromycin gone wrong. More than a decade later, an American company, Abbott Laboratories, created a partnership with the original manufacturer of Naxy, Taisho, to gain its international rights. In 2004, the medication became a generic brand in Europe and in the United States the following year.

Naxy is usually taken by mouth as a pill and oral suspension. There are also gel and lotion versions of the medication created for topical use. Naxy is effective in preventing bacteria from growing and from spreading. It has antimicrobial effects similar to erythromycin but is far more effective and safe. Naxy, especially the pill and liquid form, will not cause discomfort if taken on an empty stomach. It is easily absorbed by the body and distributed into the site of infection. When using the oral suppression pills, it is best to take the medication with food.

A missed dosage should be taken immediately. However, if the realization is too close to the next scheduled dosage, skip the missed dosage and continue with your normal schedule. Never take a double dosage of Naxy and do not stop your intake of the medicine prematurely. Some symptoms may stop before the bacteria are killed. Since your goal is to kill the bacteria and stop it from spreading, take the medication for the advised period of time. Following your physician's prescription is important.

Naxy has some side effects. Diarrhea, vomiting, and swelling on the face are common reactions towards this medication. Some side effects could be severe and may include headache, motion sickness, skin rashes, dry mouth, anxiety attacks, hallucinations, yellowish skin, and kidney failure. If you experience any of these, rush to your physician immediately. Any side effect that is not normal or is causing you discomfort should be a cause for alarm and you should consult your physician immediately.

Special precautions should be taken by those with histories of allergies, asthma, hives, liver disease, kidney ailment, heart problem, or electrolyte imbalance. Naxy is not recommended for patients with these conditions as the reaction may be severe or life threatening. When taking a prescription medicine like this, your physician's advice is always necessary. They will determine whether the medication is appropriate for you or not and will regulate your intake to ensure that no damage is done.
