Azithromycin for throat infection treatment
Many people naively believe that throat infection is a simple and ordinary disease. However, this is a dangerous misconception because a 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 a 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 the bacteria that cause 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 patients.
The antibiotic is resistant to the acidic environment of the stomach and can be taken anytime. However, doctors usually recommend taking it an hour before meals to hasten 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. Clinical studies have proven 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 experience 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.
Doctors recommend the following treatment for angina in adult patients: take one tablet of 500 mg or two tablets of 250 mg once a day. If the patient misses a dose, he should take it as soon as he remembers. The next dose can be taken in 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 antibiotics.
