Louise Says:

At the suggestion of a hotel doctor I bought Azitromicina 500mg for the treatment of a chest infection in MX. Tried to submit a claim for the cost via my US insurance as they say they reimburse worldwide RX expenses. But now they want the 11 digit 'national drug code' or no payout. I checked the FDA NDC database but: 1. it states all NDC's are 10 digit and: 2. obviously this is not a US product and therefore not in there. How can I find what I need to get my costs back? It is Zertalin Azitromicina 500mg (Collins Farmaceuticos) 6 tablets in a white jar with silver/black/blue label. The pharmacist 'said' it was a 2 course pack for 3 days I.E. 1 tablet per day for 3 days (2 courses contained). Is this correct also? I usually have known ZPak or Azithromycin to be 2 on the 1st day then 1 per day for days 2-5!

That is correct, the NDC codes are 10 digits, not 11 and I'm not sure how to find one for a foreign product. All the databases that I have access to only list them for U.S. products.

The course of the dosing can vary, depending on the type of infection being treated and the severity.

But, just as an example, here are some of the NDC codes for the 500mg Azithroymcin tablets that are available in the U.S.:



Does anyone else have any ideas?

The cost of antibiotics in MX is very cheap. I have purchased them there too and have never asked my insurance for reimbursement. I was thankful that I didnt have to pay fr them in a pharmacy in the USA, which is triple the cost, at least.

Hi, I'm taking a 3 tablet course of azitromicina 500mg purchased in Spain to fight a chest infection. Would there be any adverse effects with a small amount of alcohol? Thank you
