Were you looking for information on Erythromycin? Eurythromycin is a common misspelling of erythromycin.
Erythromycin is often prescribed for several different bacterial infections, from acne to chlamydia. The drug works by preventing bacteria from making protein, which it needs to grow and multiply. It comes in several different forms, including pills, ointment, and injections, and is generally taken every 6 to 12 hours.
If side effects occur during treatment, they are generally mild and easily treated. Some adverse reactions, however, are potentially serious and should be reported to a healthcare provider. These include signs of liver damage (upper-right stomach pain, dark urine); signs of myasthenia gravis (droopy eyelids, muscle weakness); and signs of an allergic reaction (unexplained wheezing, swelling, or difficulty breathing).
