Azithromycin Overview

Azithromycin (trade names Zithromax, Sumamed) is an antibiotic useful for the treatment of bacterial infections. It is an azalide, a subclass of macrolide antibiotic. It is derived from erythromycin, with a methyl-substituted nitrogen atom incorporated into the lactone ring, thus making the lactone ring 15-membered. Azithromycin is somewhat more potent against certain bacterial species than erythromycin, but its widespread popularity arises primarily from its slow elimination from the body, w...

Hi - Have really been down and out since Memorial day weekend. Though it was the flu - chills, fever, headache and body aches!! I was in bed 4 days before I started feeling a little better.

samitrogen 500mg to treat STI
how do i administer Samitrogen to treat an STI, i got the 500mg with 9 pills, do i need to finish all of them. ## Hello, Jo! How are you? Azithromycin is an antibiotic that can treat bacterial infections, but it may not be the correct one to treat yours, if you have one. It is also not the preferred one to treat UTI's. You should have this checked out to make sure an infection is present and then get a prescription for the appropriate medication. Is there anything else I can help with?

azitromicina 500mg
White and Blue Capsile 1/4 X 3/4 ## I have sinus and allergy drainage, is this piill OK to take for that, I had a friend buy the 500mg azitromicina in Mexico. ## I took the Mexican Azitromicina 500 mg for sinus infection, and it worked for me. Presentation comes in 3 caplets and box reads, Azibiot. ## Azitromicina is the Mexican brand name for the antibiotic Azithromycin. This will only help with infections and due to the dangers of allergic reactions and developing drug resistant infections, it should never be used unless prescribed by your doctor. Some of the most common side effects include: nausea, drowsiness, diarrhea and skin rash. ## I started to suffer a severe chest infection whilst in Spain a visit to the chemist I purchased a 3 day course of Azitromicina Sandoz 500mg. 3 days ...

wisdom tooth infection
I was started on Azithromycin by my Dr. in case I had strep throat but come to find out I have a real bad wisdom tooth infection, which is very painful..The script of Azithromycin is for 5days will this work for my infection in my tooth? ## Hello, Crystal! How are you? It may help, but 5 days may not be enough to completely eradicate the infection and it will not correct the underlying cause of the dental infection, so you'll still need to see your dentist, or the infection will keep returning. Is there anything else I can help with?

azitromicina 500 mg for vaginal infection
Could i use azibiot azitromicina 500mg for a bacterial infection in the vaginal ? ## Hello, Jo Jo! How are you? This is a Mexican name for the antibiotic Azithromycin, which will only treat bacterial infections and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Has your doctor confirmed a bacterial infection? If not, you need to have it checked out first, because this may worsen some yeast infections.

ggd6 for headaches
It's Azithromycin. It usually is a 5 day Rx prescription. Results from it last 4-10 days after prescription is over. I was given it for chronic headaches. If your doctor prescribes you GGD6 for headaches, I would ask for something else. It hasn't worked for me and I'm still getting headaches daily. ## Azithromycin is an antibiotic that's used to treat bacterial infections, it is not something prescribe for headaches. Are you certain that is the medication you're thinking of? Is the ggd6 supposed to be the marking on something or the name of something?

craztronin azitromicina 500 mg
Can i drink beer while taking this medication? ## Hi, Mellie! How are you? Combining the medication with alcohol can cause an aggravation of the side effects, making them more intense than usual, so you may experience more nausea, drowsiness and dizziness than normal. This could result in one drink affecting you as if you'd had two and so on. Learn more Azithromycin details here. Thus, it's best not to imbibe, while taking it, but if you choose to do so anyway, then please make sure that you will not be driving or operating any heavy machinery. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Craztronin Azitromicina 500 mg was given to my husband and he is allergic to sulfa. Is there sulfa this med????
