Were you looking for information about Zithromax? Zitromax is a common misspelling of Zithromax.
Zithromax® (azithromycin) is an antibiotic prescribed for the treatment of various common infections, such as bacterial infections and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). A few of the bacterial infections Zithromax is used to treat include pneumonia, throat infections, and skin infections. Among the STDs that can be treated with this antibiotic are gonorrhea, chlamydia, and chancroid.
This medicine works by decreasing bacteria's ability to make protein and by affecting peptide activity, which helps keep bacteria from continuing to live and cause infection in the body. Zithromax is available as either a tablet or liquid suspension, and is licensed for use in both adults and children. Some common side effects of Zithromax include nausea, diarrhea, cramping, and abdominal pain (or stomach pain).
