Many people naively believe that throat infection is a simple and ordinary disease. However, it is a dangerous misconception because throat infection is a serious condition that can lead to many complications if left untreated. Infection can cause significant complications because it can affect the functioning of the cardiovascular system.
Usually, high fever and acute pain in the throat are definite symptoms of throat infection or angina. A sore throat causes a lot of pain while swallowing. Often, angina is complicated with chronic tonsillitis, and in such case, the patient does not complain of high temperature but only of a sore throat and general weakness.
Acute tonsillitis is dangerous for both children and adults. Few people know that rheumatism in many people starts as a complication of an untreated sore throat. Angina should be taken seriously and treated comprehensively. Drugs for reducing a high temperature are not enough. Doctors often recommend Zithromax to treat angina.
The main active ingredient of Zithromax is azithromycin. It is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that efficiently fights bacteria causing angina. Antibiotic Azithromycin belongs to the group of macrolides. It is well tolerated compared to antibiotics of the penicillin series, so doctors prefer to prescribe it to the patients.
The antibiotic is resistant to the acidic environment of the stomach and can be taken anytime. However, doctors usually recommend to take it an hour before meals to fasten its absorption and action.
The soft tissues of the body, the respiratory tract, and body fluids such as blood plasma and lymph quickly absorb Zithromax. It gets directly to the infection and then it is released. The clinical studies proved that the concentration of the drug in the infected areas is significantly higher than in healthy tissues. Hence, the side effects are minor and rare; many patients don’t have any side effects at all.
In a case of uncomplicated angina, Zithromax is prescribed for 3-5 days. The drug is available as tablets and capsules, each of which can contain 250 mg or 500 mg. The dosage and duration of treatment of a sore throat with antibiotic Zithromax differ for children and adults. A doctor should prescribe the dosage and length of therapy.
The doctors recommend the following treatment for angina in adult patients. They should take one tablet of 500 mg or 2 tablets of 250 mg once a day. If the patient missed a dose, he should take it as soon as he remembers. The next dose can be taken with an interval of 24 hours.
Zithromax for angina should be taken with caution. Consult your doctor and tell him about your chronic diseases and about the medications you currently take. You should also mention any allergies to an antibiotic.
