Aztrin review





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

Patients suffering from abnormal heartbeats, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), kidney or liver disease, or cystic fibrosis should consult with their physician before taking Aztrin. This medication is not recommended for patients taking anticoagulants (blood thinners), or any immunosuppresants. Combining these medications with Aztrin may be harmful to the patient.

There is no evidence that Aztrin is particularly harmful for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding; however, it is best to consult with your physician before taking this medication to ensure that there will be no adverse effects for the mother or child.

Aztrin is prescribed in two forms: as a tablet or as a liquid suspension, both are taken orally and usually taken once or twice a day for one to five days. If your physician instructs you otherwise, follow his prescription exactly or the bacteria in your body may become immune to the medication. It is best to take a missed a dose as soon as you remember. However, do not take more than the prescribed amount at one time. Aztrin may be taken with or without food. The tablets need to be taken with a full glass of water. Mix the liquid suspension well before taking it.

Do not consume alcohol when you are taking Aztrin. Do not perform any potentially dangerous tasks such as driving until you are certain of Aztrin’s effects on you. This medication does cause extreme sleepiness in some patients. Aztrin also makes skin more sensitive to UV rays, so avoid being in the sun too much or using any tanning beds.

Unless your physician prescribes a specific diet for you, you may continue on the current diet that you are on.

Aztrin is a widely accepted medication because its side effects are often so minimal. These side effects include stomachaches, diarrhea, and mild skin rashes. Unless you experience these in very serious forms, there is no need to worry. Occasionally, some adverse side effects 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 symptoms not listed here that make you uncomfortable, contact your physician immediately.

The medicine should be kept in the container it came in. For the tablet, store it in a cool place away from any moisture. The liquid may be stored at room temperature or in a refrigerator, but do not freeze it. After 10 days, dispose of any left over or unused medication.
