Azithromycin (Brand names: Zithromax, AzaSite, Zmax) is a generic medication prescribed for the treatment of various types of bacterial infections, including pink eye (bacterial conjunctivitis). It works by stopping the growth of bacteria that causes infections in your body. Azithromycin is available in several forms.
The suspension form should be shaken well before taking. The oral form is usually taken once daily with or without food for five days. Take this medicine exactly as prescribed and at around the same time daily. It is also available as an injection administered in a clinical setting. Azithromycin is being evaluated for its potential use in the treatment of COVID-19 along with hydroxychloroquine, but it is not currently approved by any drug regulatory authority for this use. Azithromycin sold in the U.S. may be purchased at lower cost than in Canada and other international pharmacies. Be sure to compare prices before you buy from abroad.
