What is zithromax?
Zithromax is an antibiotic medicine belonging to the macrolide family. This treatment is manufactured by the Pfizer laboratory and distributed since 1999 on the French market.
It is the branded version of Azithromycin which is a second-line, preferred treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) chlamydia.
The Zithromax is available from our pharmacy for patients who tested positive for infection or were not recommended to take Doxycycline in first-line treatment.
It can also be purchased in combination with a self-test to be performed directly at home. This option is for patients who have not yet been screened but whose partner has contracted chlamydia.
(Patients wishing to order the combined version including the drug Zithromax and the test online must first take the screening test before undergoing medical treatment).
What does zithromax treat?
The first-line treatment for chlamydia is doxycycline. Azithromycin is the second-line treatment and is the generic version of Zithromax.
This is a single dose, whereas doxycycline is a longer treatment than a week. Zithromax is the branded version of azithromycin and comes in capsules of 250 mg.
The antibiotic agent in Zithromax works by preventing the bacteria responsible for the infection from producing the enzyme essential for its survival.
Without this enzyme, the bacteria can no longer grow and will be destroyed by the immune system.
Patients who have tested positive for chlamydia and who cannot take Doxycycline (because they are allergic to any of its ingredients, for example) can purchase Zithromax online using our service.
You can also order a combination pack from us including a screening kit and treatment.
