Roxithromycin acts by inhibiting bacterial protein synthesis. Roxithromycin combines with 50S ribosome subunits and interferes with the translocation process. Rulide inhibits the movement of new peptide to peptidyl site and thus ribosome fails to move along the messenger RNA. Thus peptide chain formation gets terminated and protein synthesis is suppressed. This mechanism of action prevents the further multiplication of bacterial cells.
The common side effects reported with Roxithromycin are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, epigastric pain, flatulence, head ache, dizziness, malaise, moniliasis or candidiasis, urticaria, rash, pruritis, angioedema and increase in serum transaminase levels. The increase in serum transaminase levels is seen especially in elderly patients.
