Azithromycin Drug Information

I need to know more about an antibiotic prescription that was filled from a brand in India. Is this okay to take? I was surprised that it was not manufactured domestically. ## Can I use azithromycin for a sore throat or throat infection? ## white oblong pill with 787 on one side and PLIVA on the other. ## Azithromycin is a real antibiotic and made by a real company. I really haven't researched it to see what country it is made in. What makes you think it is fake? What are the imprints on it..the numbers/letters, color and shape of pill or capsule. I wouldn't take it just for a sore throat. A sore throat is usually viral not bacterial; therefore, an antibiotic will not really make a difference. If you suspect you have a throat infection such as strept or something like that get t...

Craztronin 500 mg interactions with blood pressure meds?

Can I take Craztronin 500mg with high blood pressure medication? ## I decided to select a number of well known blood pressure medications from different classes to check for interactions with the antibiotic Craztronin (Azithromycin).

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.

Mucinex and Azithromycin

I’ve been taking Azithromycin for 5 days, for bronchitis, but it’s doing nothing for my cough. I’m up all night coughing. Can I take Mucinex daytime while taking this other medicine? ## I didn't find any problems or interactions listed, but it is always best to double check such information. And I agree, bronchitis is annoying, that cough is horrible. I ended up in the ER once with it, a couple years ago, the medication I was given there didn't work, so I had to go to my PCP and take even more medications, before it finally cleared up. Azithromycin can cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash, according to FDA reports. But, if there has been no improvement, at this point, you might need to try a different med...

Zertalin Azitromicina

There are 6 tablets in the bottle. How many do you take? There no instructions. ## Hi Jet, From what I could gather, "Azitromicina" or "Azithromycin" is the active ingredient in this drug. The dosage information I found for Azithromycin states that (500 mg) should be taken orally on the first day followed by (250 mg) orally once a day on days 2 through 5 (which adds up to 6 pills in total). Please post back if you have any more questions, I hope this helps! ## Thank you for this information, I needed it as well. ## Can I use Zertalin for a tooth infection?

Samitrogen (Azithromycin) usage

Thinking I have an abscessed tooth. I have samitrogen on hand purchased in Mexico. Sell by date is Sep 2014. Are these still safe to take? ## Hello Sam! How are you? Unfortunately, I am not sure. Mexico does not regulate their medications like the U.S., so I don't know if that is an expiration date, or if it is still effective for awhile after that. It would be best to see your dentist, so he can prescribe an antibiotic for you, if one is required. Additionally, even after taking an antibiotic, you'll need to have the underlying cause of the infection treated, or it will keep returning. The FDA lists the typical side effects to antibiotics as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and dehydration. Does anyone know how the expirations work in Mexic...

My boxer ate a z-pack pill. He is 85 pounds. What do I do? ## Azithromycin is used to treat canines, as well as people, so there is most likely nothing to worry about, but it would be best to check with your veterinarian. He may experience some side effects from it, which the FDA lists as possibly including nausea, drowsiness and diarrhea.
