USES OF AZITRAP-500
Azithromycin is used to cure numerous bacterial infections. It is basically a macrolide kind of antibiotic. It acts by preventing bacterial development. For viral infections, this drug is ineffective (such as the common cold, and flu).It is used to treat bacterial infections of the lungs, scalp, soft tissues, ear, nose, and throat as well as tonsils and sinuses (pneumonia).
HOW IT WORKS
It acts by inhibiting the synthesis of necessary proteins needed by bacteria to perform essential tasks. Consequently, it prevents the spread of the infection and the bacteria from growing. Any antibiotic’s potency may be lowered by inadequate or inappropriate dosing.
EXPERT ADVICE: Prior to starting to take azithromycin and each time you get a prescription, read the patient information copy, if one is available from your pharmacist. As prescribed by your doctor, take this medicine by mouth once a day with or without a meal. If you have stomach discomfort, you may take this drug with meals. Your medical situation and treatment outcome will determine the dosage. If the treatment is stopped too soon, the bacteria may be allowed to continue to develop and the infection may recur. If taken concurrently, antacids comprising aluminum or magnesium may reduce the effect of azithromycin. As a result, consume azithromycin at least 2 hours before or after. If your issue persists or gets worse, let your doctor know.
COMMON SIDE EFFECTS: Abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or upset stomach may be the possible side effects. Inform your physician or pharmacist as soon as possible if any of these side effects persist or get worse.
