Six things you must know before you buy Zithromax® online
Generic Name: Azithromycin
Zithromax® is indicated for the treatment of patients with mild to moderate infections. To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of Zithromax (azithromycin) and other antibacterial drugs, Zithromax (azithromycin) should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by bacteria.
Zithromax should not be used if you have a known hypersensitivity to azithromycin, erythromycin, any macrolide or ketolide antibiotic.
Zithromax does not treat viral infections such as a cold.
Taking Zithromax could cause abnormal liver function, hepatitis, cholestatic jaundice, hepatic necrosis, and hepatic failure, some of which have resulted in death. Discontinue azithromycin immediately if signs and symptoms of hepatitis occur.
Taking antibiotics such as Zithromax and other antibacterial agents alters the normal flora of the colon, and leads to the overgrowth of C. Difficile. Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea (CDAD) may range in severity from mild diarrhea to fatal colitis.
Zithromax has side effects such as diarrhea, a common problem caused by antibiotics which usually ends when the antibiotic is discontinued.
When taking Zithromax although it is common to feel better early in the course of therapy, the medication should be taken exactly as directed. Skipping doses or not completing the full course of therapy may (1) decrease the effectiveness of the immediate treatment and (2) increase the likelihood that bacteria will develop resistance and will not be treatable by Zithromax (azithromycin) or other antibacterial drugs in the future.
Important information on Zithromax
You will need to talk with your doctor about specific types of medications that you may be using. Any medication that works to suppress your immune system functions should be discussed. Also, any medication that works as a blood thinner should be addressed with your doctor. These include commonly used medications as warfarin. It also helps to talk with your doctor if you have HIV. Zithromax may not work as well on those with HIV. Other conditions that you should talk with your doctor about include liver disease, cystic fibrosis and irregular heartbeat.
You can use Zithromax in a tablet or liquid form. You can use it by taking it once each day for a period of one to five days at a time. Your doctor will provide you with details on the specific schedule that you should be using for the best results. It is critical that you use this drug at the same time every day for the best possible results. You should also make sure that whatever the form of ZIthromax that you are using, it’s measured as carefully as possible. This includes taking whole tablets without ever splitting them in half and taking the right amount of liquid Zithromax measured by a syringe that should come with the liquid medication.
You can use the liquid form as long as the contents are shaken beforehand. Also, the syringe that is used to measure your dosage should be cleaned off after each use. It helps to keep using Zithromax until you have run out of your prescription regardless of how you physically feel from taking it. Bacteria can develop a resistance to it if you stop using it too soon. You can use Zithromax if you take antacids, however, you will need to take Zithromax about two to four hours after you take any antacid. This is to keep the antacid from interacting with Zithromax.
Finally, you should stop using Zithromax and call your doctor if you experience a severe case of diarrhea or a severe skin rash. You should stop using it if you experience swelling in the body, too.
