Azithromycin for Sinus Infections

Generally, Acute sinusitis lasts less than 6-8 weeks or occurs no more than 2-3 times per year, with each episode lasting no longer than 12 days.

However, chronic sinusitis lasts longer than 2 months or occurs more than 4 to 5 times per year, with symptoms typically lasting more than 18 to 20 days. The major cause of sinusitis is allergens, viruses, pollutants, fungi, viruses and  bacteria.

The main objective of treatment is the elimination of bacteria from the sinus cavities using antibiotics. This helps in preventing complications, reducing the risk of chronic sinusitis and relieving symptoms.

How Does It Treat Sinus Infections?

Azithromycin possesses a ‘bacteriostatic’ activity. This means that it halts the growth of bacteria and does so by blocking the formation of proteins within the bacterial cell wall. This in turn reduces bacterial proliferation and treats sinus infections.

Tips to use Azithromycin

  • Always take Azithromycin by mouth, without or with food. You may also take this medication with food if stomach upset occurs.
  • Take this drug as directed by your doctor for preventing any further infection, usually once a week on the same time and day each week.
  • Continue to take Azithromycin until your doctor tells you to stop because if you will stop the medication too early on your own, this may allow bacteria to keep on growing, which may again cause infection. Beside this, consult with your doctor if your condition worsens or persists.
  • ​All the Antibiotics work best when the proportion of drug in the body is kept at an even level. Thus, take this drug after regular intervals.
  • ​Inform your pharmacist or doctor if you are allergic to other antibiotics (for example, telithromycin,erythromycin, clarithromycin); or if you have any other allergies. Azithromycin contains a few inactive ingredients, which can lead to allergic reactions or other issues.
  • Before you start taking this medication, tell your doctor your medical history, especially of: kidney disease, liver disease and myasthenia gravis (a certain muscle disease).
