Azithromycin Overview

Azithromycin (trade names Zithromax, Azyth, 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.

best antibiotic for clamydia
Odor not usual to normal odor..not much discharge, but there is a fishy smell coming when I am naked down in vaginal Area ## Hi Carealot! Have you been to a doctor and have you been diagnosed with an STI? You need to contact your doctor and get tested. If you do have an STI then your doctor can give you the proper antibiotic. ## @carealot, Sorry to hear about your situation... But Cats is right that your doctor should be able to prescribe you the appropriate antibiotic based on their diagnosis and a closer evaluation. However, I am finding from my own research that certain antibiotics such as (Azithromycin or Doxycycline) are what's commonly recommended by doctors for treating chlamydia. I hope this helps answer your question!

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?

Presentation comes in 3 caplets and box reads, Azibiot. ## Azitromicina is the Mexican brand name for the antibiotic Azithromycin.

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?
