Description of Azithromycin
Azithromycin is a macrolide antibiotic that is prescribed to treat a number of bacterial infections. It can be used to treat ear infections, strep throat, pneumonia, and sinus infections. Azithromycin works by stopping the growth of bacteria. It is available as an oral tablet or liquid suspension.
Some common side effects of azithromycin include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. Rarely, allergic reactions such as rash or hives may occur. Azithromycin should not be taken if you are allergic to it or any other macrolide antibiotics such as erythromycin or clarithromycin.
If you are taking azithromycin for an infection, make sure to take all of the medication even if you start feeling better sooner than expected. Stopping early may allow the infection to come back stronger than before and could lead to antibiotic resistance developing in future treatments against that particular infection.
