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 azitromicina 500 mg

Can i drink beer while taking this medication? ## Hi, Mellie! How are you?

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.

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?
