Azithromycine review

Azithromycine is an antibiotic of the macrolide type that is taken orally. One of the worlds highest-selling medicines, Azithromycine is used in treating infections caused by bacteria, such as some Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs), bronchitis, and infections found in the ears, lungs, and throat. This medicament works by inhibiting the growth of proteins that feed on bacteria, causing them to die out. Note that this medicament cannot treat viral infections, such as colds and flu. Its more popular brand names are Zithromax and Ventrox.

People suffering from abnormal heartbeats, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), kidney or liver illness, or cystic fibrosis should be advised by their doctor before taking Azithromycine. This medicament is not recommended for people taking anticoagulants, also known as blood thinners, or any immunosuppresants. Combining these with Azithromycine may be harmful.

Studies have not indicated the medicament is particularly harmful for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding; however, it is best to consult with a physician before taking Azithromycine just to make certain that there will be no adverse effects.

Azithromycine is available in two forms: as a tablet or as a liquid suspension, both are taken orally and are usually taken once or twice a day for one to five days. If your physician prescribes otherwise, follow his prescription strictly. Otherwise, the bacteria in your body may eventually become immune to the medicament. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, do not take more than the prescribed amount at one time to compensate. This medicament may be taken with or without food. The pills should always be taken with a full glass of water. The liquid suspension must be mixed well before being taken.

Avoid alcohol consumption when you are taking Azithromycine. Do not perform any potentially dangerous tasks such as driving until you are sure of Azithromycine's effects on you. The medicament has been found to cause extreme sleepiness in some patients. Azithromycine also makes skin more sensitive to UV rays, so avoid being in the sun too much or using any tanning beds.

You may continue to eat normally unless your doctor prescribes a specific diet for you.

Azithromycine is such a widely accepted medicament because its side effects are often so minimal. Among these side effects are stomachaches, diarrhea, and mild skin rashes. Unless these manifest in very serious forms, there is no need to worry. On rare occasions, some adverse side effects do arise and a physician should be contacted in the case of the following: hives, skin edema, harsh rashes, hoarseness, irregular heart rhythm, or jaundice. If you encounter any problems not listed here that make you uncomfortable, contact your doctor immediately.

The medicine should be kept in the container originally given to you. For its tablet form, store it in a cool place away from any moisture. The liquid form may be stored at room temperature or in a refrigerator, but do not freeze it. After 10 days, dispose of any unused medicament.
