Bacterial infections and their treatment by Zithromax


The medical illnesses caused by bacteria have increased very much. Many people are suffering from it. There are different medicines which are being used for bacterial infection treatment but every medicine has its own advantages and disadvantages. In this article, I am going to tell you about the use of Zithromax medicine. Why you need to take this medicine? This medicine is only for bacterial infection treatment so if you are suffering from any medical problem caused by bacteria then you can use Zithromax. The user of Zithromax should make sure that they have not allergic affect to any of Zithromax component. Some drugs such as erythromycin, telithromycin and clarithromycin are those which can cause serious problems for health if the user is allergic to these drugs. Besides this, you should also tell your doctor if you have a heart rhythm disorder, myasthenia gravis, liver disease and kidney disease. These all health problems are very hazardous for the health. If they are not treated at initial stage, then they can create many other health problems. It is not still confirmed whether it can be prescribed to a woman who is feeding to her baby or not. Such a woman should consult to her doctor before taking this medicine.

There are two different ways to take Zithromax (Azithromycin) medicine. The first way is to take the medicine orally in solid form with a glass of water. Do not crush it inside your mouth but swallow it with water. You can use liquid other than water too but it should be nonalcoholic. The second way to take medicine is to form a mixture of Zithromax in water. Mix it gently and drink it right away. Make sure that suspended particles of Zithromax do not settle down while drinking the liquid. You should take every dose of Zithromax without any delay. If you were busy in any kind of work and forgot to take the dose, then you can take it when you remember but only when you are sure that much time has not passed. Otherwise, miss that dose and again start taking Zithromax dose according to schedule.

There are some medicines which can affect the working of Zithromax so you should make sure that you are not taking any of the following medicines along with Zithromax otherwise you may push yourself towards destruction. Following are the names of these drugs:

  • Nelfinavir
  • Methadone
  • Tacrolimus
  • Any antidepressant e.g. clomipramine, citalpram etc
  • Anti-malarial medication e.g. chloroquine, mefloquine and lumefantrine
  • Heart rhythm medicines

This list is not complete. There are many other medicines too which can reduce the working efficiency of Zithromax. You can ask your doctor about those medicines. It will be better if you tell him what medicines you are using right now. He will then check whether Zithromax will be suitable with those medicines or not. After this, he will prescribe you a dose and you will have to take it for a prescribed time period.
