Formula Information

A small arrow pointing down

Azithromycin 50 mg Capsules is a compounded formulation of a potent antibiotic medication, designed to combat a wide range of bacterial infections. Enclosed within two shells, either of gelatin or a vegetarian alternative, the medication is presented in a solid dosage form. This design ensures easy swallowing and provides an accurate dosage of the active ingredients.

This prescription medication is primarily used to treat infections of the skin, respiratory tract, sinuses, ear, and throat. Additionally, it is effective in treating certain sexually transmitted diseases, such as gonorrhea and chlamydia. The antibiotic works by inhibiting the growth of bacteria, thereby helping to eliminate the infection.

Azithromycin 50 mg Capsules is typically administered orally, usually once daily for a duration of 5 to 7 days. It is crucial to adhere to the prescribed dosage and complete the entire course of treatment, even if symptoms appear to improve. Discontinuing the medication prematurely may result in the infection returning or becoming resistant to the antibiotic.

While Azithromycin 50 mg Capsules is generally well-tolerated, it may cause side effects in some individuals. These can include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. If these or any other side effects occur, it is recommended to consult with a healthcare professional.

Drug Interactions

A small arrow pointing down

Azithromycin 50 mg Capsules are a solid dosage form, composed of two shells, either gelatin or vegetarian, that enclose the medication. This design allows for easy swallowing and ensures a precise dosage of the active ingredients. Azithromycin is a potent antibiotic used to treat a variety of bacterial infections, including bronchitis, pneumonia, and skin infections.

It's important to note that Azithromycin may interact with other medications. These include antacids, digoxin, warfarin, and certain antibiotics. If you are taking any of these medications, it's crucial to inform your healthcare provider. This also applies to over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements you may be taking.

Patients with allergies or medical conditions, particularly liver or kidney disease, should also inform their healthcare provider before starting a course of Azithromycin. This medication may increase the risk of bleeding when taken with warfarin. As such, patients on warfarin should have their INR monitored more closely while taking Azithromycin. Similarly, Azithromycin may increase the risk of arrhythmias when taken with digoxin, necessitating closer monitoring of serum digoxin levels.

Azithromycin may decrease the effectiveness of antacids and certain antibiotics. Therefore, patients should avoid taking antacids or certain antibiotics within two hours of taking Azithromycin. It's crucial to take the medication as prescribed and to complete the full course of treatment to ensure the infection is completely cleared.

If you have any questions or concerns about taking Azithromycin 50 mg Capsules, please reach out to your healthcare provider for further guidance and information.
