Sort by popularity
Zithromax - Used for: Treating infections caused by certain bacteria. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Zithromax is a macrolide antibiotic. It slows the growth of, or sometimes kills, sensitive bacteria by reducing the production of important proteins needed by the bacteria to survive.

Zithromax is an macrolide antibiotic of azalides group. This medication inhibits RNA-dependent protein synthesis of sensitive microorganisms.

It active against gram-positive bacteria: Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus spp. (including Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes group A); gram-negative bacteria: Haemophilus influenzae, Haemophilus parainfluenzae, Haemophilus ducreyi, Moraxella catarrhalis, Escherichia coli, Bordetella pertussis, Bordetella parapertussis, Borrelia burgdorferi, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Campylobacter spp., Legionella pneumophila; anaerobic bacteria: Bacteroides fragilis.

Zithromax, a semisynthetic antibiotic belonging to the macrolide subgroup of azalides, is used to treat STDs due to chlamydia and gonorrhea, community-acquired pneumonia, pelvic inflammatory disease, pediatric otitis media and pharyngitis, and Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) in patients with advanced HIV disease. Similar in structure to erythromycin. Zithromax reaches higher intracellular concentrations than erythromycin, increasing its efficacy and duration of action.

Indication: For the treatment of patients with mild to moderate infections caused by susceptible strains of the designated microorganisms in the specific conditions: H. influenzae, M. catarrhalis, S. pneumoniae, C. pneumoniae, M. pneumoniae, S. pyogenes, S. aureus, S. agal

Indications:

  • Upper respiratory tract and ENT infections caused by sensible agents such as: pharyngitis, tonsillitis, laryngitis, sinusitis, otitis media; scarlatina; 
  • Lower respiratory tract and soft tissues: rosacea, impetigo, secondary infected dermatosis;
  • Infections of the skin
  • Urinary tract infections: gonorrheal and nongonorrheal urethritis, cervicitis;
  • Lyme disease, gastric ulcer and duodena associated with Helicobacter pylori.

  • Zithromax is in a group of drugs called macrolide antibiotics. Zithromax fights bacteria in the body.

    Zithromax is used to treat many different types of infections caused by bacteria, such as respiratory infections, skin infections, ear infections, and sexually transmitted diseases.

    Zithromax may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Zithromax belongs to a group of antibiotics called the macrolides.

    Infections caused by susceptible organisms: In lower respiratory tract infections including bronchitis and pneumonia, skin and soft tissue infections, otitis media and upper respiratory tract infections including sinusitis and pharyngitis/tonsillitis. (Penicillin is the usual drug of choice in the treatment of Streptococcus pyogenes pharyngitis, including the prophylaxis of rheumatic fever. Zithromax is generally effective in the eradication of streptococci from the oropharynx; however, data establishing the efficacy of Zithromax in the subsequent prevention of rheumatic fever are not available at present). In sexually-transmitted diseases in men and women, Zithromax is indicated in the treatment of uncomplicated genital infections due to Chlamydia trachomatis. It is also indicated in the treatment of uncomplicated genital infection due to non-multiresistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae ; concurrent infection with Treponema pallidum should be excluded. Zithromax is indicated, either alone or in combination with rifabutin, for prophylaxis against Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare complex (MAC) infection, an opportunistic infection prevalent in patients with advanced human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Zithromax is also indicated in combination with ethambutol for the treatment of disseminated MAC (DMAC) infection in patients with advanced HIV infection.

    Infections caused by susceptible organisms; lower respiratory tract infections including bronchitis and pneumonia ; skin and soft tissue infections; acute otitis media and upper respiratory tract infections including sinusitis and pharyngitis/tonsillitis. (Penicillin is the usual drug of choice in the treatment of Streptococcus pyogenes pharyngitis, including the prophylaxis of rheumatic fever. Zithromax is generally effective in the eradication of streptococci from the oropharynx, however, data establishing the efficacy of Zithromax and the subsequent prevention of rheumatic fever are not available at present.) In sexually transmitted diseases in men and women, Zithromax is indicated in the treatment of uncomplicated genital infections due to Chlamydia trachomatis. It is also indicated in the treatment of chancroid due to Haemophilus ducreyi, and uncomplicated genital infections due to non-multiresistant Neisseria gonorrhoea ; concurrent infection with Treponema pallidum should be excluded. Zithromax is indicated, either alone or in combination with rifabutin, for prophylaxis against Mycobacterium avium -intracellulare complex (MAC) infection, an opportunistic infection prevalent in patients with advanced human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Zithromax is also indicated in combination with ethambutol for the treatment of disseminated MAC (DMAC) infection in patients with advanced HIV infection. Zithromax IV is for the treatment of community acquired pneumonia (CAP) caused by susceptible organisms, including Legionella pneumophila ; pelvic inflammatory diseases (PID) caused by susceptible organisms ( Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoea, Mycoplasma hominis ), in patients who require initial IV therapy.

    Tablet: Infections caused by susceptible organisms; in lower respiratory tract infections including bronchitis and pneumonia, in skin and soft tissue infections, in otitis media and in upper respiratory tract infections including sinusitis and pharyngitis/tonsillitis. (Penicillin is the usual drug of choice in the treatment of Streptococcus pyogenes pharyngitis, including the prophylaxis of rheumatic fever. Zithromax is generally effective in the eradication of streptococci from the oropharynx, however, data establishing the efficacy of Zithromax and the subsequent prevention of rheumatic fever are not available at present.) In sexually transmitted diseases in men and women: Treatment of uncomplicated genital infections due to Chlamydia trachomatis. Treatment of chancroid due to Haemophilus ducreyi, and uncomplicated genital infection due to non-multiresistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae ; concurrent infection with Treponema pallidum should be excluded. As monotherapy or in combination with rifabutin: Prophylaxis against Mycobacterium avium - intracellulare complex (MAC) infection, an opportunistic infection prevalent in patients with advanced human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Vial: Treatment of community-acquired pneumonia caused by susceptible organisms including Legionella pneumophila, in patients who require initial IV therapy. Treatment of pelvic inflammatory disease caused by susceptible organisms, in patients who require initial IV therapy.

    Oral: Treatment of patient with mild to moderate infections (ie, pneumonia: See Precautions) caused by susceptible strains of the designated microorganisms in the specific conditions listed as follows: Lower Respiratory Tract: Acute bacterial exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease due to Haemophilus influenzae, Moraxella catarrhalis or Streptococcus pneumoniae. Community-acquired pneumonia of mild severity due to Streptococcus pneumoniae or Haemophilus influenzae in patients appropriate for outpatient oral therapy.

Skin and Skin Structure: Uncomplicated skin and skin structure infections due to Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes or Streptococcus agalactiae. Abscesses usually require surgical drainage. Sexually Transmitted Diseases: Non-gonococcal urethritis and cervicitis due to Chlamydia trachomatis. Azithromycin, at the recommended dose, should not be relied upon to treat gonorrhea or syphilis. Antimicrobial agents used in high doses for short periods of time to treat non-gonococcal urethritis may mask or delay the symptoms of incubating gonorrhea or syphilis. All patients with sexually transmitted urethritis or cervicitis should have a serologic test for syphilis and appropriate cultures for gonorrhea performed at the time of diagnosis. Appropriate antimicrobial therapy and follow-up tests for these diseases should be initiated if infection is confirmed. Appropriate culture and susceptibility tests should be performed before treatment to determine the causative organism and its susceptibility to azithromycin. Therapy with Zithromax may be initiated before results of these tests are known; once the results become available, antimicrobial therapy should be adjusted accordingly.
