Hi Debbie,

Your first question asks whether or not Ampicillin is good to take for a bacterial infection. The answer is yes, as all antibiotics are made for this specific purpose.

To answer your second question, no, Ampicillin and Azithromycin are two different types of antibiotics. Namely, each one may be better or worse for certain types of infections. These factors are also influenced by how well each patient responds to their treatment; whereas it may well work for some people and just not as effectively for others, due to allergies, side effects or what-have-you.

If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you.

Pentrexyl is a mexican antibiotic it is ampicilina (ampicillin) this could be used for many basic infections. Azithromycin, with brand names such as Zpac is a completely different antibiotic. In mexico ask for Azitromicina it is common there as well. Zpac is usually prescribed for middle ear infections,Âstrep throat,Âpneumonia,Âsinusitis and for these STD: nongonococcal urethritis, chlamydia, andÂcervicitis .ÂIf you have a sinus infection or an ear infection pentrexyl 500mg every 6-8hrs might be okay. Azithromycin is a good antibiotic that is usually only taken for 5 days with the largest dose being on the first day, the two antibiotics are not interchangeable. Hope this helps.
