What is this drug named Generic Zithromax?
If you live in the U.S. or the Western Europe, you probably know the antibiotic called Zithromax. The thing is that the original medication name is Azithromycin. It was discovered by a Croatian pharmaceutical company that sold the right to sell the medication in the Western World to American drug maker Pfizer. For many years, since 1980, the medication in those countries was available only from a certain pharmaceutical company and under only one name. Naturally, such monopoly made the drug quite expensive. In other countries, on the other hand, where the same medication but from a different manufacturer was sold, it was and is considerably cheaper.
It is an antibiotic drug, the most popular in the developed countries. Many people buy the brand drug without even thinking that they can get the same medication several times cheaper. Fortunately, with the spread of the Internet and international retail blossom, even people from the U.S., where all drugs are dramatically overpriced, can buy Zithromax at low prices. In the majority of cases, they would purchase so-called Generic Zithromax that is different from the well-known drug only by the name on the box of pills and price per pill. The active substance of all medications sold under this name is Azithromycin. Worth noting, generics aren’t named that way officially. Some of them are sold under the name of the active substance; others are called differently, for instance, Sumamed, and many others. It is made so that the manufacturers wouldn’t violate the copyrights of Zithromax brand owners.
Is the brand drug better than the generics?
No, generics are equally effective and safe as the branded medication. Although, brand drug makers pay doctors so that they would tell their patients that the brand medications are better. They promote this idea so that people wouldn’t stop buying their overpriced medications. But the medicines marketed as generics of certain drugs are tested and approved before they are launched onto the market. Furthermore, their manufacturing and distribution are even promoted and sponsored by the World Health Organization because cheaper generic drugs equalize the opportunities to receive quality treatment for people with lower incomes and people from developing and underdeveloped world. If you don’t care what name is written on the box of pills, and we believe it shouldn’t influence anyone’s decision, you can buy Generic Zithromax at our online pharmacy and receive qualitative and effective treatment at a half of the regular price.
When is the therapy with the antibiotic appointed?
The treatment of a disease with any antibiotic is started only after the confirmation of bacterial infection, and preferably, after bacteria sensitivity tests, i.e. blood tests that show if the pathogen that caused the disease will be responsive to the treatment your doctor prescribes.
Zithromax or Azithromycin is widely used for such inflammatory illnesses caused by bacterial pathogens as the Streptococcal sore throat, bronchitis, interstitial and alveolar pneumonia, otitis media, laryngitis and sinusitis, urethritis, cervicitis, erysipelas, impetigo, secondarily infected dermatoses, Lyme disease, and stomach and duodenal diseases caused by Helicobacter pylori.
In the most severe cases, the medication is administered intravenously. You must clarify with your doctor whether you need to use pills or intravenous infusions not to order Azithromycin pills in vain.
How to decide whether the medication is safe for you or not?
The first rule in using antibiotics is to start taking them only if a bacterial infection is confirmed. If you have had a flu or common cold and the symptoms persist for more than a week, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to use antibiotics. The residual symptoms such as a runny nose or a cough can be due to allergy or virus and you should not buy Azithromycin as it won’t help you to get rid of the symptoms and the disease itself. Also, the medication is contraindicated in hypersensitivity to the substance or other macrolide-group antibiotics, severe violations of the liver and/or kidney function, age under 16 years (infusion are contraindicated). Capsules and pills must not be administered to children under 12 years of age with a body mass of less than 45 kg (in this case suspension is administered). The suspension is contraindicated to be administered to infants below 6 months of age.
Use in pregnancy and breastfeeding
You can buy Generic Azithromycin if you are pregnant and your doctor prescribes you the antibiotic. However, you should not use it without consulting your doctor first as the therapy with the medication is possible only if the anticipated benefit to the mother exceeds the risk to the fetus.
During breastfeeding, the medicine should not be taken.

Treatment of people with chronic conditions
The medication must be cautiously used in any violation of the liver and/or kidney function, arrhythmia or predilection to arrhythmia and lengthening of the QT interval. Therefore, you need to consult your doctor and possibly take reduced dosages if you have any of these conditions.
How do the pills act?
The antibiotic renders a bacteriostatic effect, i.e. it suppresses the growth and multiplication of bacteria through the suppression of vital enzymes production in bacteria. In large doses, the bactericidal (killing bacteria) effect is possible.
Adverse reactions your body can experience during the therapy
According to the statistics, the adverse effects caused by the medication are quite rare. However, you may suffer from abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting, dizziness, headaches, and others. If you buy Generic Azithromycin and start experiencing these symptoms after the therapy start, inform your doctor.
An overdose can cause nausea, vomiting, and temporary hearing loss. The treatment requires gastric lavage and symptomatic therapy.
Interactions with other active ingredients
Before you order Zithromax, you should know that the medication can negatively interact with other medications and substances. For example, food reduces the absorption of Azithromycin and antacids slow the absorption of the medication. The recommended interval between taking the drug and antacids is at least two hours.
