Azithromycinum review





Azithromycinum is an antibiotic of the macrolide type that is taken orally. One of the world’s highest-selling medicines, Azithromycinum 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 medication works by inhibiting the growth of proteins that feed on bacteria, causing them to die out. Note that this medication cannot treat viral infections, such as colds and flu. Its more popular brand names are Zithromax and Ventrox.

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

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

Azithromycinum comes 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 exactly. Otherwise, the bacteria in your body may become immune to the medication. In the event that 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 medication may be taken with or without food. The tablets should be taken with a full glass of water. The liquid suspension must be mixed well before being taken.

Do not consume alcohol when you are taking Azithromycinum. Do not perform any potentially dangerous tasks such as driving until you are certain of Azithromycinum’s effects on you. This medication does cause extreme sleepiness in some patients. Azithromycinum 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.

Azithromycinum is such a widely accepted medication 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, swelling, 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 medication.
