Zithromax is one of a group of antibiotics known as macrolides. These work by interfering with the bacteria’s protein synthesis, thereby limiting their ability to grow and multiply. Azithromycin, which is the active ingredient in Zithromax, stops the spread of bacteria so that the body’s immune system can fight off infections more easily.


Uses of Zithromax


To treat a range of bacterial infections such as these:

  • Pneumonia and bronchitis
  • Sinusitis
  • Otitis media
  • Skin infections
  • Some STIs include chlamydia and gonorrhea in this list.

Note that Zithromax can only treat bacterial infections but not viral diseases such as colds or flus.

Recommended Dosage and Administration

The dose depends on what condition it has been prescribed for and the patient’s health profile. It is usually taken once daily for 3-5 days. To maintain constant blood levels, take Zithromax at about the same time every day for best results.

Potential Side Effects

A number of side effects are possible with Zithromax although it is generally well tolerated. These include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhoea
  • Absominal pain
  • Headache(s)
  • Dizziness(s)

Effectiveness of Zithromax

According to studies and clinical trials, Zithromax is a highly effective treatment for bacterial infections when used as directed. Its broad spectrum activity against various bacteria makes it the preferred choice for many healthcare practitioners.


Zithromax is a powerful antibiotic which offers an effective cure for various types of bacterial infections. Being simple to take and having a wide range of coverage, this has become the medicine of choice by most healthcare providers. Nonetheless, like any other antibiotics, Zithromax needs to be used responsibly so as not to cause resistance in the development of antibiotics. Always consult your healthcare provider before starting new medications including Zithromax or any other drug since it may be contraindicated in certain conditions.

Remember that the key to fighting infections effectively lies not only in taking medication but also in being responsible by following prescribed doses and completing the entire course of treatment. By doing this you will help preserve lifesaving drugs like Zithromax for future generations.
