Zithromax 100mg is a prescription medicine manufactured by Pfizer Ltd. It is an oral suspension form of Zithromax; a macrolide antibiotic that is used to treat bacterial infections and ease symptoms associated with these infections. Zithromax is usually prescribed for infections that are suspected to be caused by microorganisms.
How Zithromax Works
Zithromax 100mg oral suspension contains 100mg of the active ingredient Azithromycin. Azithromycin is a type of antibiotic that stops bacteria in the body from producing the proteins needed to replicate. By inhibiting protein synthesis, Zithromax 100mg can help to maintain a smaller bacterial load, allowing the body’s natural immune system to better fight off the infection by destroying the bacteria and stopping it from growing.
Zithromax 100mg is often used to treat:
- Bacterial pneumonia
- Otitis media
- Skin infections
- Soft tissue infections
- Gential infections and ulcers caused by STIs
- Lyme disease
- Urethritis and cervicitis
- Ear and chest infections in children
It is important to take Zithromax 100mg medicine exactly as prescribed by your doctor. To take this medicine, shake the bottle well and measure out the correct dosage using the syringe supplied. Oral suspension Zithromax can be taken with or without food.
If a dose is missed, take as soon as you remember, unless closer to the time of the next dose. In this instance, skip and take the next dose as normal. Do not take two doses.
Patients taking Zithromax 100mg often feel better within a few days of starting the treatment. However, you should always take the full course as prescribed.
Zithromax Side Effects
Zithromax 100mg is generally considered to be safe when taken as prescribed. However, as with many medications, some patients may experience side effects:
