Zithromax general information

What is Zithromax used for?

Zithromax tablets 500mg are used to treat a variety of mild to moderate infections caused by certain susceptible types of bacteria in different areas of the body. 

These include lower respiratory tract infections caused by Streptococcus or Haemophilus, such as pneumonia and bronchitis; also upper respiratory tract infections like tonsillitis, sinusitis, pharyngitis and otitis media (ear infection); skin and soft tissue infections like folliculitis and cellulitis, abscess and ulcers caused by Staphylococcus and Streptococcus; sexually transmitted disease caused by Chlamydia and Neisseria, including urethritis and cervicitis; pelvic inflammatory disease (infection and inflammation of uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries). 

Zithromax tablets 500mg are also used to prevent opportunistic infection (bacteria that lie dormant until activated by low immunity) with Mycobacterium Avium-Intracellulare complex (MAC) in people with HIV. 

How does Zithromax work?

Zithromax tablets 500mg contain azithromycin, an antibiotic belonging to the azalides group, which is a sub-class of the macrolides. Azithromycin in Zithromax tablets 500mg prevents the spread of bacterial infection by blocking bacterial protein synthesis so that the bacteria cannot produce proteins that are needed for its growth.

This action stops the growth and spread of the bacteria and relieves symptoms of the bacterial infection, which include inflammation and pain. Zithromax tablets 500mg do not work against viruses which use a different mechanism to grow and replicate. 

What does Zithromax contain?

Zithromax tablets 500mg contain the active ingredient azithromycin dihydrate, an antibiotic used to treat a variety of mild to moderate infections caused by certain susceptible types of bacteria in different areas of the body. Zithromax also contains calcium hydrogen phosphate, croscarmellose sodium, magnesium stearate/sodium lauryl sulfate 90/10 blend, opadry white Y-30-18037, pregelatinised maize starch and purified water.
