Azithromycin Z Pack

What is Zithromax Z-Pak?

Zithromax Z-Pak is an antibiotic that fights bacteria.

Zithromax Z-Pak is used to treat many different types of infections caused by bacteria, such as respiratory infections, skin infections, ear infections, and sexually transmitted diseases.

Zithromax Z-Pak may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Treating strep throat with Z-Pak

If your doctor thinks azithromycin is a good choice for you, they may prescribe a generic version of azithromycin or a Z-Pak.

Each Z-Pak contains six 250-milligram tablets of Zithromax. You would take two tablets on the first day, followed by one tablet daily for four days. A Z-Pak typically takes at least five days to fully work, but it can start to relieve your sore throat and other symptoms on the first day you take it. If your doctor prescribes a generic version of azithromycin, your treatment may only last three days.

Be sure to take your Z-Pak or generic azithromycin exactly as your doctor prescribes. It’s important to take all of the antibiotics that you are prescribed. This is true even if you feel better before you’ve taken the full course of treatment. If you stop taking an antibiotic early, it could make the infection come back or make future infections more difficult to treat.

Interactions

It is always important to share with your doctor and pharmacist all of the medications you are taking.

This includes not only all of your prescription medicine, but also products that may not seem like medication, such as over-the-counter drugs, vitamins and other dietary supplements (nutritional shakes, protein powders, etc.), and herbals along with any legal or illegal recreational drugs.

You should not take Azithromycin if you are taking

  • Pimozide (Orap)
  • BCG live (Theracrys)
  • Dronedarone

Side Effects of Azithromycin

Many people experience fewer side effects when taking azithromycin compared with other antibiotics in the macrolide class, such as erythromycin (Erythrocin).

However, you may still experience side effects, especially if your doctor prescribed a high dose of azithromycin to be taken just one time. Tell your doctor if you experience any of the following:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Gas
  • Loose stools
  • Stomach discomfort

Some people may also experience cramps and yeast or vaginal infection.

Warnings

Azithromycin can cause abnormal changes in the electrical activity of the heart, which may lead to deadly irregular heart rhythm, according to a special warning by the FDA in 2012.

If you have a heart-rhythm condition, such as a slow or irregular heartbeat, or take drugs to treat these conditions, you should talk to your doctor about it before taking azithromycin.

Your doctor also should make sure you have normal blood levels of potassium and magnesium before prescribing azithromycin.

In addition, you should not take azithromycin if you:

  • Are allergic to azithromycin or any of its inactive ingredients
  • Have a form of jaundice known as cholestatic jaundice, in which bile backs up into the liver and causes a yellowing of the skin, eyes, or nails
