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.

How should I take Zithromax Z-Pak?

Follow all directions on your prescription label. Do not take this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. The dose and length of treatment with Zithromax Z-Pak may not be the same for every type of infection.

You may take most forms of azithromycin with or without food.

Take Zmax extended release liquid (oral suspension) on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal.

To use the oral suspension single dose packet: Open the packet and pour the medicine into 2 ounces of water. Stir this mixture and drink all of it right away. Do not save for later use. To make sure you get the entire dose, add a little more water to the same glass, swirl gently and drink right away.

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.
