What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before taking Azithromycin 5 Day Dose Pack (azithromycin)?

You should not use azithromycin if you are allergic to it, or if:

  • you have ever had jaundice or liver problems caused by taking azithromycin; or
  • you are allergic to similar drugs such as clarithromycin, erythromycin, or telithromycin.

To make sure azithromycin is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:

  • kidney disease;
  • myasthenia gravis;
  • a heart rhythm disorder; or
  • a history of Long QT syndrome.

This medicine is not expected to harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.

It is not known whether azithromycin passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. Tell your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.

Do not give this medicine to a child younger than 6 months old.

How should I take Azithromycin 5 Day Dose Pack (azithromycin)?

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 azithromycin 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.

Throw away any mixed Zmax oral suspension that has not been used within 12 hours.

Shake the oral suspension (liquid) well just before you measure a dose. Measure liquid medicine with the dosing syringe provided, or with a special dose-measuring spoon or medicine cup. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one.

Use this medicine for the full prescribed length of time. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cleared. Skipping doses may also increase your risk of further infection that is resistant to antibiotics. Azithromycin will not treat a viral infection such as the flu or a common cold.

Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Throw away any unused liquid medicine after 10 days.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.

Is Taking a "Z Pack" Antibiotic Safe While Nursing?

The very best thing to do in regard to any prescription given during pregnancy or breastfeeding is ASK. Ask your Pharmacist..sometimes doctors who aren't specialized in OB/ Gyn wont know but sometimes even OB/GYN's aren't on key either. I had an OB/Gyn prescribe a medication for my sinus infection when pregnant that when I asked the pharmacist about it he freaked out because you are WAY not supposed to take it when pregnant.I was so relieved I had asked. Same goes for just ask a pharmacist before taking any prescriptions . :o)
