What does Azithromycin do?

Azithromycin can destroy the bacteria which are responsible for causing diarrhoea, by preventing them producing the proteins they need to survive.

How effective is Azithromycin?

Azithromycin is highly effective in the treatment of bacterially caused diarrhoea. However, overall, it is only 97% effective, as it cannot be used against Giardia or amoebic dysentery. If Azithromycin doesn’t clear up your diarrhoea, you should see a doctor.

How will I know if my treatment is working?

By taking Azithromycin, you can reduce the length of your diarrhoea episode from 3-4 days to 1-2 days. You will know your treatment is working if your symptoms clear up. If the diarrhoea persists, consult a doctor.

When should I start treatment?

You should start treatment as soon as you notice any of the symptoms of diarrhoea: frequent loose stools, nausea and cramps. The sooner you start treatment, the quicker your recovery will be.

Is it important that I continue the course until my diarrhoea has completely cleared up?

Yes. This will prevent resistant strains of bacteria developing.

Can I drink whilst taking Azithromycin?

No. Alcohol will neutralise any positive effects the drug has. This means your diarrhoea won’t be cured effectively.

In which global location is Azithromycin a good option?

An antibiotic such as Azithromycin is the best way to prevent bacterially caused diarrhoea cases. Azithromycin is particularly effective in South East Asia for this reason because most cases of diarrhoea there are caused by bacteria.

Do I need a prescription?

Yes. You can get this online with DrEd, provided you are suitable for the treatment.

What else might Azithromycin be called?

Brand names such as Zmax or Zithromax may be used.

What do the tablets look like?

The tablets are white and marked with Pfizer and “250”.

How do I take Azithromycin?

In the case of minor diarrhoea, take 2 x 250mg Azithromycin tablets as soon as you notice the first symptoms. From this point onwards, take 1 x 250mg tablet a day, but stop this treatment when the symptoms clear completely. In the case of more serious diarrhoea, take 2 x 250mg Azithromycin tablets when you first notice symptoms, then continue to take 1 tablet per day for at least 4 more days. If the diarrhoea persists, consult a doctor. Avoid missing doses, as this will make your treatment less effective, but take the tablet as soon as you remember.

You should take the treatment with a full glass of water and over one hour before a meal, or over two hours after a meal.

What is in an Azithromycin capsule?

The active ingredient is the Azithromycin. Each tablet will contain 250mg of this. Other ingredients include lactose, magnesium stearate, maize starch, sodium lauryl sulphate, gelatin, iron oxide (black) E172, shellac, propylene glycol, sulphur dioxide and titanium dioxide. If you are allergic to any of these ingredients, you must not take Azithromycin as a treatment for diarrhoea.
