Clarithromycin

Clarithromycin is a prescription antibiotic. It is used to treat mild to moderate infections caused by susceptible bacteria in the following:

  • Tonsillitis
  • Laryngitis
  • Pharyngitis
  • Community-acquired pneumonia
  • Acute otitis media in pediatric patients
  • Acute sinusitis
  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Uncomplicated Skin and Skin Structure Infections
  • Duodenal Ulcer Disease in Adults
  • pylori Infection
  • Treatment and Prophylaxis of Disseminated Mycobacterial Infections
  • Sexually transmitted disease

It is also used to treat and prevent Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC). MAC is a type of lung infection that affects people with HIV. It can treat certain types of an ulcer when used along with other anti-ulcer medications.

This drug prevents bacteria from growing by inhibiting their ability to make proteins. It binds to the subunit of the 50S of the bacterial ribosome, which helps in inhibiting the translation of peptides.

Why Buy Clarithromycin?

Clarithromycin is a semi-synthetic macrolide antibiotic. It is FDA-approved for the treatment of a wide variety of bacterial infections. It can stop and prevent bacteria from growing and causing further infections. It is chemically-related to Erythromycin but this drug has a higher absorption rate, a higher volume of distribution and lower clearance rate. Clarithromycin is available here.

How to Take Clarithromycin?

This medication is available in 250 mg and 500 mg tablet. The recommended dose is based on the following:

  • Your condition
  • The severity of your condition
  • Your age and weight

The typical dose for the treatment of most infections in an adult is 250mg to 500 mg. Take the medication every 12 hours for 7 to days. For pediatric patients, the dose is 15mg per body kg every 12 hours for 10 days.

Take this exactly as prescribed. Take it regularly with or without food. For pediatric patients who are using the suspension form, shake the bottle well before each use. Take this regularly at an evenly spaced time. Do not take more than what is required or longer than the required duration of treatment.
