What is Sandoz Azithromycin used for?

Sandoz Azithromycin is an antibiotic medicine used to treat the following types of mild to moderate infections by certain microorganisms in adults such as bronchitis, certain types of skin infections, strep throat (pharyngitis, tonsillitis), genitourinary infections, and pneumonia. Antibacterial drugs like Sandoz Azithromycin treat only bacterial infections. They do not treat viral infections such as the common cold. Although you may feel better early in treatment, Sandoz Azithromycin should be taken exactly as directed. Misuse or overuse of Sandoz Azithromycin could lead to the growth of bacteria that will not be killed by Sandoz Azithromycin (resistance). This means that Sandoz Azithromycin may not work for you in the future. Do not share your medicine.

How does Sandoz Azithromycin work?

Sandoz Azithromycin helps stop the growth of the bacteria that cause infection. It gets into infected tissue where it is released slowly over time so the medicine keeps fighting bacteria for many days after the last dose is taken. This is why Sandoz Azithromycin may be taken for as short a time as one day.
