Zithromax

Zithromax is a medication used predominantly as a first line treatment for the sexually transmitted infection called chlamydia. The antibiotic capsules contain ingredients which are able to target the bacteria that causes chlamydia and prevent it from spreading before eventually killing it off. When treating this particular infection, the capsules in a pack of Zithromax are typically taken all at once in a one-off dosage.

What is Zithromax?

Zithromax capsules are antibiotics used for treating chlamydia. It is the branded version of azithromycin, which is one of the first line treatments for dealing with chlamydia in the UK. This treatment belongs to a group of antibiotics called macrolides. A pack of Zithromax typically contains four capsules, each containing 250mg, and they are all taken at once in a one-off 1g dose.

As well as treating chlamydia, Zithromax may possibly be prescribed to treat skin and soft tissue infections, ear infections and infections in the chest, throat or nasal cavity.

How does Zithromax work?

This medications antibiotic agent attacks the bacteria that causes chlamydia (C. Trachomatis) by preventing it from producing an enzyme it needs to survive. Without the ability to create this enzyme, the bacteria are no longer able to spread and its existing cell structure begins to weaken before eventually the body’s natural defences kill it off.

How do I take Zithromax?

For treating chlamydia, it’s recommended that all four capsules in a pack of Zithromax are taken all together on one day only. This medication should be swallowed whole and taken either one hour before a meal or two hours after a meal.

The dosage instructions can be different if someone is taking Zithromax to treat a different condition other than chlamydia. For instance, the recommended dose could be 1g or 2g daily in combination with 250 or 500mg of ceftriaxone if treating gonorrhoea.

What are the side effects of Zithromax?

Like with other medicines, Zithromax can cause side effects but not every patient will experience them. The most common side effects that can occur when using this treatment include:

  • Stomach cramps
  • Feeling sick
  • Diarrhoea
  • Wind
  • Dizziness and headaches
  • Numbness or pins and needles
  • Indigestion and vomiting
  • Loss of appetite and taste disturbance
  • Skin rash and itching
  • Joint pain
  • Low number of lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell or higher number of eosinophils (a different type of white blood cell)

Other side effects are possible which are much rarer but can also be very serious, so it’s best to talk to your doctor or pharmacist about any side effects that you experience. It’s particularly important to speak to your doctor immediately if you experience any of the following:

  • Sudden wheezing or difficulty breathing
  • Severe or prolonged diarrhoea (which may have blood or mucus in it)
  • A severe skin rash causing redness and flaking
  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat
  • Low blood pressure
  • Serious skin reactions that cause blistering in certain areas or a fever and swollen glands

Can I use Zithromax?

There are certain medical conditions you may have or other medicines that you’re taking that could make taking Zithromax problematic. Before you begin taking this treatment, let your doctor know if you have any of these conditions:

  • Kidney problems
  • Any heart conditions
  • Liver problems
  • Myasthenia gravis (weakens certain muscles)
  • A migraine being treated with ergot derivatives such as ergotamine (these should not be taken together with Zithromax)

You should also speak to your doctor about other medicines you are currently taking or have recently taken before starting Zithromax. In particular, the medicines below are worth bringing up if you are taking any, since they can interact with the effects of Zithromax:

  • Ergot or ergotamine
  • Warfarin or other similar medicines used to prevent blood clots
  • Digoxin (treats heart failure)
  • Ciclosporin (suppresses the immune system to prevent and treat rejection of transplanted organs or bone marrow)
  • Antacids (treats indigestion)
  • Colchicine (treats gout and familial Mediterranean fever)
  • Terfenadine (treats hay fever or a skin allergy)

It is also worth speaking to your doctor prior to taking Zithromax if you are pregnant, breast-feeding, planning to get pregnant or have been told you have an intolerance to some sugars. This medication contains lactose – a type of sugar.

What if I take too much Zithromax?

If you end up taking more of this medication than you are meant to, it’s best to contact your doctor or nearest hospital casualty department immediately. It is possible you may feel unwell as a result of taking too much of this treatment. The various side effects associated with this medication will become more of a possibility in the case of an overdose.
