Zithromax DT (generically known as Azithromycin) is an oral medication indicated for the treatment of various bacterial infections, including respiratory tract infections, skin and soft tissue infections, sexually transmitted infections (such as chlamydia), and certain gastrointestinal infections. It will not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu 

Azithromycin works by inhibiting the growth of bacteria and preventing them from reproducing. It does this by binding to the bacterial ribosomes, which are responsible for protein synthesis. 

Use and Dosage 

Zithromax DT is a dispersible tablet, which means it can be dissolved in water before taking. Place the tablet in a glass of water (around 15-30 mL) and stir until it disperses. Drink the mixture immediately after it is fully dissolved. It can be taken with or without food. However, take it at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal for optimal absorption. 

For the treatment of certain bacterial infections in adults and pediatric patients (6 months of age and older), the recommended dosage of Zithromax DT is usually 500 mg once daily for 3 days. However, the dosage may be adjusted by a healthcare professional based on the specific infection and the individual patient’s needs. 

If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is close to the time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.

  • Allergies: Inform your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to azithromycin or any other antibiotics such as erythromycin, clarithromycin, or telithromycin. Azithromycin may contain inactive ingredients that can cause allergic reactions or other problems.

Be sure to inform your doctor about all medications you are currently taking, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, and herbal supplements. 
  • Liver or Kidney Problems: If you have a history of liver or kidney disease, discuss this with your doctor before taking azithromycin. Adjustments to the dosage or additional monitoring may be necessary. 
  • Heart-related Issues: Azithromycin has been associated with a rare but serious condition called QT prolongation, which can lead to an irregular heartbeat and potentially life-threatening arrhythmias. Inform your doctor if you have a history of heart problems or if you are taking any medications that can affect heart rhythm.
