A 14 year old has had two bouts of fever within one month. Paracetamol, azithromycin, and zinat have been given. Now his sgpt is 156 and sgot is 76. Could it be due to the long term intake of cetrizine 5mg daily for allergies?
Azithromycin (zithromax, azithrocin, zmax, azin) is an azalide, a subclass of macrolide antibiotics. Azithromycin is one of the world's best-selling antibiotics.[not in citation given (see discussion.)] it is derived from erythromycin, with a methyl-substituted nitrogen atom incorporated into the lactone ring, thus making ...Read more
Is it ok for my 8 yr old to take Tylenol (acetaminophen) and azithromycin together. She has a 103 fever?
Taking antibiotics azithromycin for last 6 day and acetaminophen for last 3 days but still my throat pain in not yet cured. Though the pain is not much?
2 month old baby is breast fed, I went to the hospital, I'm sick, they prescribed azithromycin and Tylenol (acetaminophen), now my baby has a rash on his face?
HMMMM: A z-pak and tylenol (acetaminophen) are both category B for pregnancy and breast feeding (meaning they are safe). The amount of systemic absorption that gets in to breast milk is minuscule and would most likely not be the cause of the rash. More likely would be your possible sickness if bacteria, for example strep, that may cause skin eruptions/rashes in children. If it continues, have your baby checked by Dr. ...Read more

When does azithromycin tri-pak tab 500mg expire? I received this prescription 2 months ago. Should I still take it?
Expiration date: There should be a small date stamped somewhere on the package if you look for it carefully (just like food). If it's only been 2 months since you got this Rx, it's very likely still good. I hesitate however for you to take it, without the direct supervision of a doctor. That's how germs get smarter and the patient (you!) may not be getting the best treatment. I recommend to call your doc to advise ...Read more
Took azithromycin first dose 500mg, couldn't take the rest. Was prescribed for a sinus issue. When will it be out of my system?
Has a very long "half life" thus it will gradually decrease to half in 68 hours then half of that in another 68 hours. WHY are you asking?? You have not had enough to treat your sinus condition BUT you can start a new antibiotic NOW without waiting for the Azithromycin to "leave completely"!
Hope this helps!

I have a prescription for azithromycin 500mg daily 10 days. I took my first dose last night at 9 p.m. but Can I take my next dose earlier?
Yes, no problem: You can take the second dose several hours early, no problem. Then continue one dose daily. Azithromycin is very long acting; each dose is in your system for a week or more. Take it once a day but don't worry about timing. It needn't be the same time every day -- although a regular time is still a good idea if it helps you to remember to take it. ...Read more

Azithromycin in europe (im there only currently)-is sumamed. Is it same pill, safe for treat of pity. Rosea too? To me is said to take 500mg 1x1 for 3 days
Safe, not effective: Sumamed=zithromax/azithromycin. Zithromax is a relatively safe medication to take, even in pregnancy, and 500mg daily x3 is the 3-day-pack dosage. It is relatively safe medicine to use, but not effective for pityriasis rosea--the true cause is not known but believed to be viral. Thus antibiotic such as zithromax has no role in the treatment. Consult doc if you have trouble. Good luck. ...Read more

I've been diagnosed with gonorrhea and was given 4 500mg pills of azithromycin. I lost the instructions for taking it. Do I take it all at once? Or 2 the first day and then one each day after?
Gonorrhea: Uncomplicated gonorrhea can be treated with a single dose of one gram of azithromycin. If you were given two grams, then perhaps you had a more complicated condition. It would not hurt to take one gram a day for two days. Make sure you are checked for other stds, particularly syphilis and hiv, because people with one std often have more than one. ...Read more
It depends: The context is important here. If Azithromycin is taken for a sexually transmitted infection such as chlamydia, then absolutely not! Aperiod of 2 weeks is recommeneded if you planto be intimate with some one else. If the abx is being taken for a pneumonia, then it should be ok, but I think it is more prudent to refrain from sexual activity until you have recovered from an infection. ...Read more
5 Hour Energy: It is my opinion that one should not use 5 hour energy drinks at all because of potential for adverse effects on blood pressure and the heart. Azithromycin is subject to degradation when exposed to an acid environment. 5 hour energy will increase the acidic level of the stomach and could inactivate part of the dose of azithromycin. ...Read more
