Not ideal: Zithromax is generally not prescribed for infections of the kidney, which can be quite serious. Zithromax is often used for people allergic to penicillins, and for specific infections such as Mycoplasma pneumonia, bullous myringitis and pertussis.

Probably not: it would not be a typical antibiotic for a kidney infection or a UTI. It is unlikely to help a kidney infection. You should check with provider on a more appropriate antibiotic
