I did 5 days of biaxin (clarithromycin) for bronchitis, bronchitis came back three days later, now I'm back on biaxin (clarithromycin). Will the biaxin (clarithromycin) work again?

Antibiotics - biaxin (clarithromycin) Biaxin (clarithromycin) is Clarithromycin - a macrolide antibiotic. It's quite effective for the 'usual' bacteria that cause bronchitis. However 'viruses' can also cause bronchitis and would be unaffected by an antibiotic. In addition, you may have some 'reactive airways disease' which means it's more of an inflammatory process now, rather than a true infection. With antibiotics pls be careful of side-effects!
