People who use Zithromax will start to see the effects of the drug within three days, and the drug stays in the body for just over six days. The drug is taken in tablet form and is taken as a singular dose. The dose means that there will be four tablets in the system and this ensures that the infections that it is used for clear up relatively quickly.

• Use of Zithromax

The drug is one of the world's best selling antibiotics, and is used to treat a number of bacterial infections. It is commonly used for the treatment of ear infections, typhoid, pneumonia and sinusitis. It has also become common to use the drug for the treatment of certain sexually transmitted diseases. Some of the sexually transmitted diseases that it is effective for are chlamydia, cervecitis and gonorrhea. It is also used for the treatment of mild forms of malaria, as well as toxoplasmosis and salmonella.

• Side effects

As with any antibiotic there are a number of possible side effects that those who are administered the drug, may suffer from. The most common side effects related to the intake of Zithromax are diarrhea, nausea and severe abdominal pains. The drug can also affect the effect of contraception pills, so it is advisable to avoid sexual intercourse when taking the drug, if pregnancy is not wanted.

• How is it taken?

The drug, which was introduced onto the market in 1981, was initially only available in tablet form. There are now a number of additional ways in which the drug is administered. The most common of these is as an oral suspension, enabling a simple single dose to be given to patients. The drug can also be administered through injection.

As with any form of antibiotics, it is always best to consult a doctor for exact information and advice before taking them.

Zithromax contains azithromycin which is a macrolide antibiotic and is used for bacterial infections including STD bacterial infection. In STD its dose is 4 tablet once only. Because 4 tablets of Zithromax are much higher than the minimum inhibitory concentration for STD bacteria. These 4 tablets are sufficient to treat STD because the terminal half life of Zithromax is 68 hors and complete drug elimination will take place in about 150 hours.
