Side effects of Azithromycin
Like all other forms of medicine, azithromycin does have side effects, although some of the most common ones can dissipate as your body becomes accustomed to the drug. However if something unusual or potentially harmful occurs, stop using it immediately and consult your doctor.
The most common side effects, estimated to effect less than one in ten people, are: stomach upset, stomach cramps, feeling/being sick and diarrhoea. Whilst there some more serious side effects have been reported, these are rare, affecting only 1 in 100 and 1 in 1000 users. See full list of side effects here.
It is also important that vegetarians are aware that azithromycin capsules do contain gelatine.
How does Azithromycin work?
Azithromycin can be taken by either sex and is used to treat infections caused by bacteria and micro-organisms which can cause flu symptoms, ear/skin infections. It is most commonly used to treat chlamydia, which if left untreated can lead to infertility.
When two capsules are taken together once a day (the usual dose) for a duration of three days, antibodies known as macrolides are released into your bloodstream to clear up infections. However for chlamydia, four capsules must be taken on one day for the medication to be effective.
How effective is Azithromycin?
Azithromycin must be taken for the recommended period of time in order to work. If its application is stopped too soon, the infection could return. Zithromax capsules should be consumed either one hour before a meal, or two hours afterward to work correctly.
