What is Azee (Azithromycin) used for?
Azee (Azithromycin) is a macrolide antibiotic prescribed for pediatric use. It is typically used for the treatment of skin infections, ear infections, or respiratory tract infections. The medication operates by preventing the existing bacteria from reproducing and allowing the body to fight the infection naturally. Note that it will not be effective for the treatment of fungus or viral infections such as influenza.
How should I use Azee (Azithromycin)?
Always follow your pediatrician`s instructions for using Azee (Azithromycin) to get the safest and most effective results from treatment. The correct dosage will be determined by your doctor based on the patient`s age, weight, current health, the condition being treated, and the severity of your symptoms. These should be measured using the included measuring cup and administered orally. Do not stop taking the medication before being instructed to by your doctor, even if the symptoms seem to be gone, as the infection may return stronger or more resistant to treatment. Ask your pharmacist or doctor any questions you have about the medicine to ensure the correct usage.
