Azithromycin 250 mg
Capsules for oral use
Product leaflet summary
AZOMAX is indicated for the treatment of the following infections, when caused by microorganisms sensitive to azithromycin:
– Bronchitis Community-acquired pneumonia
– Otitis media
– Skin and soft tissue infections
– Uncomplicated genital infections due to Chlamydia trachomatis or Neisseria gonorrhoea
Consideration should be given to official guidance on the appropriate use of antibacterial agents. Azithromycin is not the first choice for the empiric treatment of infections in areas where the prevalence of resistant isolates is 10% or more.
Dosage And Administration:
In uncomplicated genital infections due to Chlamydia trachomatis the dosage is 1000 mg as a single oral dose.
For all other indications the dose is 1500 mg, to be administered as 500 mg per day for three consecutive days 1 hour before meal or 2 hours after meals.
The use of AZOMAX is contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity to azithromycin, to other macrolide or ketolide antibiotics, or to any of the excipients.
Pregnancy And Lactation:
Animal reproduction studies have been performed at doses up to moderately maternally toxic dose concentrations. In these studies, no evidence of harm to the fetus due to azithromycin was found. There are, however, no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Because animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response, azithromycin should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed.
There are no data on secretion in breast milk. As many drugs are excreted in human milk, azithromycin should not be used in the treatment of a lactating woman unless the physician feels that the potential benefits justify the potential risks to the infant.
Ability To Drive And Use Machinery:
Experience to date indicates that, in general, azithromycin has no effect on the ability to concentrate and react. However, the undesirable effects of treatment, such as dizziness, somnolence and convulsions can influence the ability to drive and operate machinery.
