Azithromycin is used for mild to moderate bacterial infections. It works against several types of bacteria, especially chlamydia, haemophilus and streptococcus. These bacteria can infect the skin, nose, throat and lungs. They can also be transmitted through sexual activity and cause infections in the genital area.

Many germs live in our body or are common in our environment. A healthy immune system can fight them or keep them under control. However, HIV infection can weaken the immune system. Infections that benefit from weakened immune defenses are called "opportunistic infections." People with advanced HIV disease can get opportunistic infections.
Azithromycin is available in capsules or tablets of 250 milligrams (mg). There is also one tablet of 600 mg. It is also available in powder and liquid form. To combat most infections, the dose for adults is 500 mg on the first day, then 250 mg each day for 4 more days.
The dose used to prevent MAC infection is 1200 mg or 1250 mg once a week.
Azithromycin tablets can be taken with or without food. Take with a lot of water. Capsules or fluid should be taken on an empty stomach, 1 hour before eating or 2 hours after meals. Be sure to check the instructions carefully.
Do not take Azithromycin at the same time as antacids containing aluminum or magnesium. They will reduce the amount of Azithromycin in your blood.
Azithromycin Side Effects
The side effects of Azithromycin for the most part affect the digestive system. They include diarrhea, nausea and pain in the abdomen. Some people become very sensitive to sunlight. Others may have headaches, dizziness or drowsiness, or have hearing problems. Very few people taking Azab get those side effects. However, most anti-HIV drugs can also cause problems in the digestive system. Azithromycin could make these disorders.
Some people have a severe allergic reaction to Azithromycin. Let your health care provider know immediately if you get severe diarrhea, fever, joint pain, severe stomach cramps or pain, swelling of your neck, mouth, hands and feet, or difficulty breathing.
Antibiotics kill some bacteria that normally live in the digestive system. You can eat yogurt or take acidophilus supplements to replace them.
