Erythromycin Oral

Several different bacterial infections can be treated with the prescription drug erythromycin, including chlamydia, pertussis, pneumonia, acne, and pelvic inflammatory disease. Some forms of erythromycin are taken orally as capsules or tablets; others are taken by injection; still others are applied as an ointment to the skin or eyes. The exact type prescribed will depend on the condition being treated.
When taking the oral form of erythromycin, it is generally taken every 6 to 12 hours, but this can vary. A dose of this medication can be taken with or without food -- taking it with food may help prevent stomach upset. In addition, erythromycin should be taken exactly as your healthcare provider directs to help ensure a safe treatment process and prevent bacterial resistance.
