How long does azithromycin stay in your system for? I don't quite understand the half-life...

In what fluids will azithromycin tablets disolve in? I don't want to be able to taste it. Can I crush them and put them in tea?

Swallow them whole: The tablets won't taste bad if you just swallow them whole -- or maybe very brief bitterness. If you crush or try to dissove them in tea or anything else, it will be extremely bitter and difficult to swallow. If you can't handle the large pills, ask the pharmacy to replace them with the powder form of azithromycin, which is designed to be disooved in water or juice. ...Read more

Son needed to have 4 ml of Azithromycin. I only got 3 in him (spat out some). Should I give him 1 more ml? Won't have enough for last dose if I do.

You should not re-dose if your son spit some out because of concern for over-dosing. If you won't have enough to complete the last dose, ask your pediatrician to call in an additional amount to the pharmacy so you can complete the course. ...Read more
