Antibiotics Home > Erythromyacin

Were you looking for information on Erythromycin? Erythromyacin is a common misspelling of erythromycin.
Erythromycin is a common antibiotic used to treat a wide range of conditions. However, it is not appropriate for all situations. This medication is approved for treating infections only when they are caused by certain types of bacteria -- not all bacteria will respond to erythromycin.
In addition, bacteria have different resistance patterns in different regions of the country. This means that some bacteria may be susceptible to erythromycin in certain parts of the country but not in others. What's more, people with certain medical conditions or who are taking certain drugs may need to take a different antibiotic instead.
